I loved my food. My husband’s cheese grits and French toast were cold. I had to go to the bar and ask for salt and pepper despite asking our waiter for it. We won’t be going back.

Very nice restaurant and service could not have been better. Bartender made excellent bourbon drinks. Server was really on his game, checked in just enough. Dinner was good, steak cooked perfect. I am so glad we went.

Clam appetizer to die for. Fried chicken, strange chicken taste, brine possibly???, a little tuff, not the best I’ve ever had.

Second visit- dined there 2 years ago and food was much better. I ordered the pork chop (medium) and it was over cooked and portion was small and not very thick. Price is a bit on the pricy size. Sides were good.
The service was also good.

This was our 3rd trip to RX. The food is SO good, farm-to-table, interesting options that change with the seasons -- highly recommend the shrimp and grits! A tad spicy...

Rx is sooo good! The farm-to-table food served here was all from farms I recognize and know as local. Everything was delicious and the variety on the menu made it hard to choose what to get. Not sure if my favorite was the Cedar Island Oysters or the pimento cheese and biscuits to start. Luckily everyone shared theirs so we each got to try a little of everything. The service also was outstanding. Great smiles and helpful suggestions from our servers. Can't wait to go back!

We usually love coming to Rx but this time with the new menu there where practically zero options for vegetarians. I ended up having only cheese grits as my dinner. Very disappointed considering the price point and reputation of this restaurant.

First visit to Rx was enjoyable.
From our welcome by hostess, Morgan, and special menu labelled Anniversary, we were made to feel very welcome. We were seated in a relatively quiet area as requested.
Miguel, our server, is the BEST that we have encountered in Wilmington. He made our Anniversary meal quite an event to remember! Extremely attentive, professional, genuinely friendly and skilled in describing entrees and ensuring that beverages and our meal items were served at appropriate intervals.
Our appetizer of clams and sausage was tastefully prepared and quite enjoyable. Entrees at Rx are creatively unique and tasty and the duck and the grouper meals were no exception. We finished the evening with a delicious cup of pumpkin cheesecake.
Will certainly return to Rx and would enjoy a broader selection of seafood entrees and wine by the glass on our next visit.

Had a phenomenal time at Rx! I drove down from DC to visit a friend. I don’t like to cook, but I love good food and trying local restaurants wherever I go. Rx was hands down the best place I went to in Wilmington. We wanted to relax and catch up. We didn’t feel rushed at all and told our server, Amanda, that we wanted to try several things and paced them out. Nice wine list, too. She was so pleasant, fun and knowledgeable about the food. She called in the sommelier when I had a question about the wine list ... she was delightful as well.
We were debating whether to get the hickory smoked wings at such a cute, farm-to-table restaurant, but Amanda told us we wouldn’t be disappointed. They were soooo delicious. We finished them off and then quietly stuck our fingers in the bowl to swipe up the extra sweet and sour sauce ... they were that good! Bottle that sauce! We had the deviled eggs, too. They were good, too, but the wings were the star appetizer.
I had Kyle’s Baby Lettuces salad next. Again, a delicious round. Everything in was tasted fresh and matched well. My friend got a different salad. She liked it, too.
For my main, I got the pork shoulder/pork confit dish with cubes sweet potatoes. It was really, really flavorful. My friend got the shrimp and grits. She thought they were great, but when she tried my dish she said I out ordered her because the flavors in the pork dish were amazeballs.
I couldn’t resist ordering the radishes in brown butter with pumpkin seeds. Tasty and unusual side dish... we loved ‘em!
Seriously, best restaurant in Wilmington. Delicious, fresh, creative. Not pretentious but just hip enough for any age, because it’s all about the food and drink.
Thank you to the chef, kitchen and restaurant staff!
