I live in Charleston SC--some say the gastronomic center of the South, but Rx certainly would fit in!

This is a great restaurant. I always enjoy the food and the bar at this place. It can sometimes be a little noisy but not bad. We live about 25 minutes north of the restaurant area so this is a trip for us but we do it several times a year. I always recommend this spot to people staying downtown.

We were a group of four going for dinner and theater. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to our timing needs for the theater. The menu is a Day by Day affair, with very interesting local items, all of which looked delicious. Two of us had the shrimp and grits and the other two had two different types of chicken. All were quite good and ample, with local sides. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great evening meal.

As a non-meat eater, choosing RX was a gamble. I am sure their meat and meat enhanced options are amazing, but the meals we had were a bit bland.

Our appetizer of Topsail oysters and our wine pairing was delicious.

And, our server was friendly and knowledgeable.

As newbies to the neighborhood we heard Rx was one of the best places to eat around and it did not disappoint. The waiter, Rick, was fun and honest with his opinions and recommendations from the menu. We had a few snacks, a first, and shared an entree with a bottle of wine...perfect. The pork belly was prepared just right and their biscuits, yum. I cannot wait to continue to explore their menu including brunch. It may be dangerous living within a few blocks of such a delicious restaurant.

Lot's of places emphasize farm-to-table connections. RX does a great job at transforming local ingredients into creative takes on traditional regional cuisine.

I really enjoyed the shrimp and grits...though I could have easily savored more their fresh and well-accompanied oysters (I had a half dozen) instead.

Looking forward to returning soon!

Excellent meal. Food was delicious and very enjoyable. The biscuits that come with the Smoked ham and pimento cheese were as close to perfect as I have found in a restaurant. The rest of the meal was outstanding with great service throughout.

The food was very interesting and creative. We loved the biscuits and pimento cheese. The salad was so so but the sweet potato soup hot and delicious. I did not care for the old fashioned cocktail as much as some others I have tried around town. The duck and fried chicken were good. Our waiter was very attentive.

This evening's dinner was to celebrate our anniversary and about our 10th time to Rx. We were welcomed and seated on time for our reservation at 6:00PM. Service was impeccable, efficient and knowledgeable. Our cocktails were delicious (mine was the "Black Hearted Male" and my wive's was a "Old Fashioned"). Appetizer we split was the pig's ear. Scrumptious! Entrees were the duck for my wife and I had the pork chop. Both were cooked to perfection and had the local organic sides with both. Again, delicious. I would recommend Rx for any occasion and you will not be disappointed.

Rx is a Wilmington NC gem. Fresh menu items from local farmers and fishermen. Wide range of small plates make it easy to try different flavors. Nice wine, beer and cocktails round out the meal. Save room for the yummy sweets offered. Carrot cake was very light and fresh. Good parking available. Try it out and enjoy.
