Excellent meal, everything we tried was yummy. Pigs ears, watermelon salad, cheese board, shrimp. Loved the drugstore theme filled with elixirs.

Everything at Rx is fresh, local and delicious. Even the tables came from reclaimed wood from a local barn. The menu changes daily according to what is available so you'll never get the same meal twice. The chef considers every detail of the food and that attention is carried out through the service. Loved the okra "fries", the light batter coating was good enough to eat on its own and the okra was still juicy inside. I was afraid the popcorn with the scallop dish would be more novelty than delivery, but the texture worked.
Wilmington is two hours away from me, but I will need to commute it on a regular basis to eat at Rx.

A nice L-shaped room from a converted drug store, I presume. Dark, woody, atmosphere. Nice bar. Pleasant staff. Adventurous farm-to-table menu that changes a lot. I never thought I'd ever eat "pig's Ears" but think chicken wings. Crackling and tasty. The "butcher board" was just ample enough at the price but contained some good stuff. The side order of smoked mac n'cheese is as sinful as it sounds and can feed four. It's a few blocks east of Front Street, south of Market; we walked from downtown without issues.

I was very surprised by the excellence of this unassuming restaurant. Our server was one of the best ever. The food was superb. Definitely in Wilmington give RX a try. You will love it.
