    Great food, dogs tolerated

    We had the nachos and they were great! We sat on the patio with our two small dogs and they brought a water bowl when we asked for it.

    A great choice!

    My husband and I took our 4 month old pup here on a Saturday afternoon and were promptly seated at one of the two outdoor patios. The shrimp and grits were some of the best I've had! Every menu item we tried was exceptional and were offered samples if we weren't sure. Our server was friendly and gladly brought a bowl of water for our pup upon request. Plenty of shade and a very pleasant atmosphere. We will definitely be back!

    Super Friendly, Great Food

    We took our 5 month old puppy (saw reviews on bringfido.com) and sat on the side porch. We were immediately asked if we would like a water bowl. Besides our waitress, who paid lots of attention to our puppy, several other servers came out to pet her. We felt very welcomed and taken care of, and our puppy loved the attention.

    Very dog friendly

    Came here after a day on the beach with out be able puppy. Very accommodating, all wait staff seemed to LOVE dogs. Even gave our pup a bowl of water. Wonderful experience, service and food!

    Special treatment

    Rucker Johns, like all other businesses in town, had tied up their outdoor furniture in prep for hurricane Matthew. We called ahead and they prepared outdoor seating for us and Ellie. They were very outgoing, great service and terrific food! Get the croissants! They went above and beyond for us with our boxer!! Many praises!!
