Our first time here after hearing great things, NOT disappointed! We loved just how “southern” it truly is. Creative takes on some old south cooking- like if grandma had spent some of her early years in the city and then incorporated those ideas upon returning to her simple country life. In case you’re wondering, that was intended as a MAJOR compliment...
Incredible flavors, relaxed atmosphere, attentive service. Not a single complaint.
Farm to table, and seasonal, of course. I recommend taking a chance on something you know and also something you don’t know. Everything on the menu really sounded fab so we had a hard time deciding. Pimento cheese and ham biscuits; shrimp and grits; Herbie’s falling apart pork shoulder over Dixie field peas; blueberry pie with burnt honey ice cream OMG...
Go. Enjoy. You’re welcome!

The service and food were the best I have ever received in Wilmington. I found the prices too steep for this city, even that venue. The restaurant looks wonderful on wood floors without a lot of linen showing. My kind of place.

I'll return, but not often, due to their prices. I'll remember the meal and my server, until next time.

Food and service were outstanding. Duck Pate appetizer and fried chicken were outstanding. Cocktails were fun and nice wine list. Only compliant was noise level- too loud due to poor acoustics- they should address this issue

One of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington. I had the pork and my husband had the steak. Both were very flavorful. We had the heirloom tomatoes and cheeses as appetizers. Excellent! Everything is always fresh and different every time we visit. Service is excellent.

The food was good, but not great. We liked the service and ambiance. They were attentive and polite, and not excessive. It is probably a neighborhood gem for those who live close by.

Wonderful shrimp and grits. Appetizer biscuits are incredible. Texture of appetizer cornbread was excellent, but could have been a little bit sweeter.

My wife and I went here for our Anniversary. Our babysitter canceled on us and we had to reschedule. When we showed up our menus were personalized with the words “happy anniversary”. I can only assume they did this the time we cancelled too. Our server was Miguel and we had the best service that we maybe have ever had. The food was absolutely incredible. The drinks were strong and delicious. This is my favorite restaurant I have been to in years!

The restaurant is fantastic but desperately needs to have professionals come in and work with the sound baffling technology that exists . It is almost impossible to hold a conversation at the table and it is way too loud to even hear the waitress explained the specials.

Wonderful opportunity to get beautiful fresh food prepared in very creative ways! Our only problem was the Flat Iron Steak was under cooked in our opinion and even though they graciously took it back to cook more for us, it was returned still with very rare/raw sections. That ruined an expensive entree for us.

We have had this experience at other restaurants and have learned where to order our steaks now.

Started with Dave’s Smoked Ham, Pimento Cheese, Rx Pickles and Biscuits which was delicious. Our party ordered Brasstown Flat Iron Steak & Eggs, Shrimp & Grits, Rx Ham Benedict & Slow Cooked Eggs, Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. Food and cocktails were extremely delicious. RX is one of our favorites in Wilmington, not only for brunch for dinner as well. Exceptional and attentive service! Thank you Addison!
