Food and service were very good. Be warned it is very, very loud. The server had to yell so we could hear him.

Rx is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington! The food, service and atmosphere is wonderful. The food is always super fresh and thoughtfully and artistically prepared. Every dish is bursting with flavor and uniqueness. We come to Rx for alot of events and they always prepare a menu that acknowledges our event! So nice!

Given it's short menu RX always fulfills expectations on food quality.. this trip was no exception. Pork Chop, flank steak, and assorted appetizers were special as usual. I will say that on this trip we felt the service was off.. delayed food delivery, hard time getting waiter's attention when we wanted to leave. Much of this can most likely be attributed to a full restaurant on a Friday night which also raised the noise level a few decibels. Still RX is one of our local favs!

It was my parents 50th Anniversary and we decided to goto brunch here. And it was above and beyond from Vincent’s service to the Farm Fresh unique scrumptious dishes.
In fact, they printed out special menus just for our party of 5 that read Happy 50th Anniversary at the top.

Over the top perfection! We went for brunch on mother’s day and we had an amazing meal (clams and sausage) and delicious mimosas and finished it off with an outstanding dessert (caramel chocolate thing). The service was fabulous and the restaurant was completely full! We will enjoy Rx for years to come!

Perfect restaurant for special occasions such as Mother's Day. Great Sunday brunch on any occasion! Try the deviled eggs with smoked flounder as an appetizer. The shrimp and grits were superb, not too spicy but well seasoned. Smoked ham eggs benedict are also a good bet. Ambience is warm for being a renovated drug store - and the noise level was reasonable.

Mother’s Day brunch - it was wonderful but loud. Not a big problem except had a couple older folks who have trouble hearing in loud places like that.... as great as everything was, it was not a lounge-around, leisurely paced place. But it was a great meal and I hope to go back. We were visiting from out of town.

The hubs and I wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary and my daughter mentioned RX. It was easy to make reservations on Open Table the day of our dinner. Our waiter Miguel was helpful and charming and fun. The food was delicious! The drinks were great! And they gave us dessert on the house for our anniversary. Already planning to go back....

Outstanding service. As a new diner I suggested the server pick my meal. The appetizer, main course and dessert were all outstanding with great choices by the team. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a different menu experience as the farm to table meal choices all sounded intriguing.

We have been to RX several times and usually make it a stop when we have guests in town as it does not disappoint. This time we were going before attending a theater production. We started by sharing the smoked ham, pimento and biscuits (worth it for those alone) and also the sweet potato fries. Would have liked the fries a little crisper. Wine list as always was excellent and the staff is available to help in the selection. For mains, we had the duck, shrimp and grits and the hangar steak. The hangar steak, asked for medium rare, definitely came out very rare. However, the meal was taken back to the kitchen and promptly returned properly done. Overall an enjoyable pre-theater dinner with good food, and good service in pleasant surroundings.

We had a wonderful time for my wife's birthday dinner. She loved her shrimp and grits. The drinks we ordered from the bar were amazing. The appetizers were very tasty and well presented. I was pretty disappointed in the duck breast. It tasted like it had just come out of the freezer, and there was no attempt at making the skin crispy. All things considered our dinner was very nice.

Finally had a chance to go to Rx with my friends from Raleigh. The ambiance of the restaurant is very unimpressive, and we were seated in front of an air conditioning vent. We did mention that we were freezing but eventually we moved to a booth away from the frigid air. First martini arrived and had to be sent back. The bartender came to our table and apologized. Made a fresh drink that was perfect.
The food, however is another story. Homemade biscuits and cornbread wedges were amazing! I have consumed many orders of shrimp and grits over the years, and Rx shrimp and grits were the best!
So it was a bit of a mixed bag for us: the kitchen was fabulous, up front needs work.

I feel bad - this used to be my number 1 restaurant in Wilmington. I usually eat at the bar. They have “new” bar stools - they are awful. It was also so noisy that I could not talk easily with my date. I won’t be back until the bar stools are fixed.

We enjoyed our first visit to RX. Can't remember our waiters name but she was very knowledgeable and made suggestions. The food was very good and fresh. We would have given it a 5 but was very disappointed in how noisey it was. We expected a nice quiet evening enjoying some different dishes with sharing some wine. Instead we kept having to repeat ourselves because we couldn't hear each other.
