We are outside, and the service was flawless which is hard to accomplish for such a large party - especially since we wanted 8 or more separate checks. The menu has something for everyone, and the value is good. Everyone enjoyed their meal. This was the perfect choice for a group lunch.

The food was delicious. I had the fried shrimp dinner and my friend had the rib eye sandwich. If you go you must try the honey butter croissants...they are warm, soft, sticky and delicious! I only have two complaints. 1. The bacon on my side salad was barely identifiable. 2. It was very humid. All in all a great dinner... More

Rucker Johns has become one of my favorite places to eat in Greenville. We usually sit outside, protected from the sun or the rain with the overhead awning and fans. The staff is ALWAYS super fun, friendly, efficient and awesome. And the food? OMG! What I love most about the food here is that I can get HEALTHY delicious meals... More

What a treat! We were waiting for maintenance on our Subaru and the service people mentioned how good Rucker Johns was next door. So we tried the NY strip sandwich, which was very, very good and the catfish sandwich, which was absolutely excellent. We loved both and will absolutely return. Recommended!

Rib eye is great and kitchen staff is spot on. Got to my plate perfect. Appetizers are plentiful and delicious. Server is courteous and attractive. Make sure you call for reservation.

Don't let the prices scare you! Prepare to share or bring home left overs. You definitely get plenty of food for the price. Full rack of ribs. .... not spicy sweet. 12 Oz ribeye. Texas chicken with chili was very good, add the wild rice to complete the meal. New favorite!

My husband and I went to Rucker Johns on a Wednesday night. It was rather busy and there were lots of help around. We got our water order inside 2 minutes of sitting down. My husband requested a beer menu and that showed up within 1 minute. We knew what we wanted so we ordered the ribs for him and... More

Rucker Johns is close and we go fairly often. Last night I enjoyed the pork chops and my husband had the chicken tenders. Both are favorites. The honey coated croissants are also a treat. They come with the salad but we save them for desert. They run specials at bar during the week which are also good. It's a good... More

Management and staff are always friendly and personable. They often have seasonal specials that are well prepared. They are willing to make changes in the preparation or choice of sides to please me.
