dine on the Crystal Coast

Bar & Grill

Few experiences stir the senses like dining on freshly caught seafood along the ocean’s edge. Our long history of fishing combined with North Carolina’s rich culinary culture has created a landscape of restaurants with roots as deep as the waters. Our Carteret Catch program even ensures you know which ingredients are caught or grown locally.

We are so pleased to welcome you to RuckerJohns! We are a family-owned business that first opened our doors in Emerald Isle over 25 years ago. Through the years our menu and locations have expanded, opening in Wilmington in 1993 and adding a third location in Greenville in 2008. As we have grown, our commitment to quality has remained the same. You can always expect fresh, delicious food made in-house daily. We cut our own fries, prepare our own salad greens and our dressings are homemade. We hand cut our steaks in-house and use Certified Angus Beef, even for our hand-pattied burgers. We use all-natural turkey and ham for our sandwiches, and our coffee is Certified Fair Trade. Everything is made to order, and your satisfaction is our utmost priority. If you have any special requests or dietary needs we are happy to accommodate you.

Royal James Cafe

The Royal James Café is a small destination located just off of Downtown Beaufort’s on-the-water Front Street, and is a local institution of sorts. A hang-out spot and restaurant since it was first opened more than 60 years ago, the café’s quiet exterior belies a fairly large restaurant as well as a slightly removed pool hall that’s filled with roughly a half dozen antique Brunswick pool tables. This makes Royal James Café a popular destination for the Happy Hour and evening crowd, but every day non-pool shark visitors can enjoy the establishment too, thanks to a hearty menu, rugged but inviting surroundings, and a casually laid-back atmosphere.
