This restaurant is delicious farm to table dining. The service was excellent and very knowledgable. The portions are deliciously large and plating was beautiful. The scallops were prepared perfectly and combined with outstanding creamed kale, fried zucchini, and a lemon sauce. The flavor combination was memorable.

This old drug store has a great feeling about it with a comfortable blend of tables, booths and bar. Servers are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Daily cocktail specials caused a stir at our table as did the 4 apps we tried....fried okra, butter bean hummus and pork ragout are outstanding. In fact we ordered all three pork dishes on the menu and loved them all.
This friendly, happy place insures a great meal and extremely pleasant evening.

Very good local food prepared in an imaginative way. Don't worry about reservations and pull up to the spacious bar. Great wine list and lots of NC craft brews on tap. Anything with pork is great, but I've also enjoyed the duck, fried chicken and shrimp and grits.

It's located on Castle St, outside the central business district. Don't miss it.

I am presently on gluten free, no oats, no corn & no dairy diet. Yes, it is difficult to find good restaurants to enjoy a fine meal. I talked with the waitress to explain my dietary needs. The waitress saw no challenge to accommodating my needs. She went back to the chef and explained my requirements. Upon her return she said the chef saw no problem. When my meal came it was presented very eloquently. The chef had made the necessary changes to accommodate my needs and the meal was beyond description. I would not hesitate to return to the RX to enjoy another fantastic meal.

Rx is a top favorite Wilmington restaurant for evening dining. Located in the old Hall's Drug Store building near the antique shops and new wine shop on Castle Street, this little gem is worth a visit. Last week our server was unfamiliar with our wine selection and offered us a taste to aid our decision. If you like thin crispy, spicy slides of fried deliciousness go out of your comfort zone and try the pig ears. What could be better than Southern fried green tomatoes stacked with homemade pimento cheese? Duck risotto, fresh fish, fried chicken! Their in vegetables are in season locally grown.
