    As always, we had a fabulous meal. We have a son with a severe food allergy and he was also able to enjoy a perfectly cooked filet, despite it being a very busy night. Can’t wait to go back.

    First time at Jerry's tho a native who moved away. Excellent meal with great service. A bit small but we arrived for 7:00 reservations and the room cleared as the evening moved along. Would definitely return as both of our meals were excellent!!

    Not sure why Jerry's isn't further up the food chain. Our first visit was excellent in every way. Small but cutely designed interior. Cocktails were prepared well and artfully presented. The beet salad and pork belly were very large appetizers and each extremely tasty. The horseradish tuna and swordfish were moist and seasoned just right. A majority of options for individuals sensitive to gluten, with additional items available for modification. The wine list was much deeper than expected and some great values to be had.

    We Always enjoy this predictable white tablecloth restaurant. We savored the grouper and swordfish - delicious, and large serving for a fish dish (perhaps too large). The tomato/pepper soup was ok but a bit disappointing. Same with ok but underwhelming salad. That said we enjoy Jerry’s and will be coming back more frequently in the future.

    It is always a pleasure to eat at Jerry’s. Overall a good experience. The service was excellent and it was a lively weekend night experience. A party of 4 all committed the food was a little too salty. I ordered the duck and it has been my least favorite meal at Jerry’s. I will not order it again. The scallops, flounder, and short ribs are a better choice. Jerry’s is always a good choice for a Wilmington restaurant.

    Very unexpected, and in a good way. The service was outstanding, as was the craft cocktail. The wine list is stellar. I did not love the tuna tartar just like my entrée, the seared scallops, it was just too much. They were lovely ingredients, and the descriptions were fantastic but everything was just too much. I would say it was fussy. Unnecessarily fussy because when you cut through the huge portions and all of the sauces, it was absolutely delicious.

    I guess I've been spoiled dining here years ago when Jerry himself ran the place. Food and service has gone down several notches since then. Having not been here in years prompted anticipation for another great meal as in the past. I was quite disappointed.

    Ordered the short rib and it did not disappoint. The plate sized portion was braised to perfection. We also enjoyed the tuna entree which was also seared to order and served piping hot. We rounded out the evening with the mousse & toffee cake. Dirty martinis were spot on and service was very attentive. We enjoyed the fact they had some background music playing also. This has always been a great spot for us and will continue to visit.

    What a nice surprise tucked away in a small strip shopping center. Once in the dining room, you forget it is in a shopping center. Staff and service were excellent. Very helpful with suggestions. Caesar salad was not the “usual” and was excellent. Very good dressing. My scallops were cooked perfectly as was my wife’s rack of lamb. Presentation was great and delicious. Key lime pie was very good. A great place for a special dinner.
