“Who knew!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Right in our own backyard, one of the best meals we've had anywhere. Very unpretentious, no view, small dining space, but undoubtedly the best food around. I had the soft-shell crabs as my entrée rather than the appetizer, and was delighted to find two very large crabs with a yummy sauce on top. The cold tomato soup was out of this world. My only regret is that I didn't get a bowl, but opted for a cup. My fiancé raved about his crab imperial flounder with the Caesar salad. For dessert, we shared the delectable chocolate mousse cake and left half of the serving on the plate. Far too much of the good thing to eat.
Service was exemplary and the value for the meal was outstanding.
We will certainly make this restaurant one of our favorites in Wilmington

“Best restaurant”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Dinner was great as always. The crab appetizer was delicious ; buttery and large pieces of crab. The steak was perfectly cooked. The wait staff always is professional, attentive, and friendly. This is the best of the beach.

“Expect the unexpected!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Tiny little place in a strip mall - very unsuspecting.
Small dining room with not many tables, covered in white tablecloths.

I had a mixed green salad, grilled salmon, buttermilk mashed potatoes, asparagus and a chocolate truffle cake for dessert. It was DELICIOUS! Will return the next time I'm in town.

“Keep It Simple”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Fresh food that was over manipulated . Too many divergent ingredients - ended in confused disappointing dishes. The Caeser salad was a heavy handed mess.

“We even got a hug before we left!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We wanted to have a nice dinner on our last night of a wonderful week in Wrightsville Beach and could not have picked a better place. Yes, Jerrys is small so make a reservation , as it just adds to the warm atmosphere, and from Julia the bartender to our wisecracking waiter who provided excellent service, we felt so comfortable and also treated to the most delicious food. My husbands rib dinner was so tender no knife needed, I had the very fresh grouper, almond crusted, with a very tasty risotto strudel.Our waiter treated us to a slice of cheesecake, light and fluffy. We have traveled a lot and value good service a great deal, when coupled with such excellent, gourmet food, you have a winner. This place is a gem, dont miss it.
