    Wonderful food and service. I had the grouper and my husband had the tuna. Both dishes were perfectly prepared. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We had a table for two tucked away in the corner which was very nice. Shout out to the chef’s Jaya and Big Cat!

    Menu was interesting & our meals were okay. Service was good. The big problem is the space. Room is jammed with tables so it is difficult to walk through. Ceiling is low, so that combination is very difficult. Noise level is painful. Take away some tables, add drapes instead of wood shutters, a noise softening ceiling. We will not return.

    There was a very large anniversary party going on that we were seated next to and they were very noisy until they got there food. We were a party of 5 conversing amongst ourselves which was challenging at times. This is NOT a Jerry’s issue but one of individual parties recognition and respect of other diner’s. We were also seated under an A/C vent so it was especially cold but we came prepared with sweaters. Overall we LOVE everything about Jerry’s food and service!

    We spent the holiday weekend in Wrightsville Beach and made a reservation at Jerry’s for a date night a few weeks in advance. Im glad we did because the place was packed. The staff was knowledgeable and the food was generous, delicious portions and incredibly fresh! Our server was a little overwhelmed and front of house stepped in so great teamwork! The dining room was smaller than I expected and there were 2 larger parties there celebrating things which was cool but elevated the noise a bit. We would definitely come again!!

    Definitely on the list to visit every time we come to Wrightsville Beach! Tucked in a small strip mall near the causeway, this is a definite “hidden gem.” The food and service were stellar and Jerry’s has one of the best wine lists in the area. The prices are higher than an average place you would go for a family meal, but for a date night or special occasion, this place should be on the short list if you’re in the area. Several of us agreed—this was the most amazing meal we had in our full week in the area.

    Not my first time at Jerry’s. It was as good as I remembered. It is a quaint restaurant and more of a local’s spot, so I was worried about getting a table for a business dinner with 6 at 6pm. I was happy to see them on Open Table so reservations were easy made the day before. Good beer and cocktail selection. The food is sourced locally and you can tell the difference in fresh seafood - snapper, grouper, tuna, and the endangered species flounder. Great selection of beef, too, including filet and chateaux briand. Can’t wait to go back.

    Fantastic experience! Jerry’s has been around a long time…it’s an oldie but a goodie! We had not eaten there in years-just so many more restaurants than there used to be. We are so happy we went back! It’s small which makes it quaint but also makes the noise level a bit much. We can get past the noise because everything else is so good! The service was excellent and our server (Nancy did an excellent job!) made some spot on recommendations The menu has a nice variety of food-something for everyone! We will definitely go back!

    Birthday dinner with friends.It was a great atmosphere with good service and meal. Our group gave it a combined 4.3 stars. One reordered drink never came but place was getting busy so easily excused. It was exactly one year ago I made the same birthday reservations for two but received a call 2 hours before dinner saying my reservations were cancelled due to Astra Zeneca wanting the whole restaurant. I didn’t think I’d ever get over it but gave them a reluctant second chance . Glad I did although Brent’s Bistro squeezed us in which I enjoy slightly better.

    This was always our favorite place in Wilmington - unfortunately, Jerry has retired and the new crew has changed the menu - they have taken off all the favorites and stopped offering the salads prior to dinner that were awesome - it just not the same place - sadly, we won’t be back

    First time we’ve dined at Jerry’s. Very pleasant interior was a surprise given rather plain front. Fairly full at 6:30 but noise was moderate and our party of 5 seated immediately (we did have reservations). Service and food all top-shelf. Seared scallops and seared tuna highly rated by 3, and I and another had soft-shell crab, fried -excellent, and so big I couldn’t finish the second one! We didn’t have dessert so we need to return.
