Service is always excellent and the food is always excellent!!! There have even been a couple of times that we have ordered take out... read more

Mediocre food, worse drinks.. Very overpriced for the quality. Waiter was pleasant, atmosphere was fine, food was barely edible.

Tried this place out for a family lunch and could not have a good conversation without the woman on the next table joining in. Maybe her husband does not talk to her or she was more interested in us. So then onto the food. I have never heard of the appetizer coming out after the entree. So apart from a... More

We live close to Rucker Johns and visit often. The service is excellent and the food is quite good. Their honey dripped croissants are to die for but they are loaded with calories so I take a bite and give the rest to my husband. He doesn't like the restaurant because they don't change often enough for him. He likes... More

Love the mushrooms and other sides. Good beverages, like eating in the bar area. Do not care for the sweet bread. I love that type of bread but prefer it plain or with regular butter.

This was my girlfriend's and my first time eating at RJ's. I was very impressed with the decor and atmosphere. The menu looked very promising. Our hopes for a positive dining experience were shattered upon receiving our food. She order the Cajun Shrimp Wrap with macaroni and cheese as her side. While it looked appetizing, her shrimp were horribly bland... More

Loved the unique variety of appetizers and entrees. Had the spicy fried shrip on a bed of lettuce. Delicious. Good variety of drink options, both for adults and children. Separated dining area or you can grab a table in bar area. I recommend this unique restaurant. Tichiganblues
