One of my favorite restaurants. I used to live in Charlotte but I moved away. I've traveled to every Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives location in North Carolina and this one was the BEST TO ME! I travel all the way from the NC coast to get the country fried steak and Mac and cheese! Please never change those recipes! Can't... More

Visited Dish Restaurant with family on 3/28/2015. This was the second time we have visited. As usual, food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Get there early as there may be a little wait to get seated. Always a big crowd wanting to get in.

Like a lot of other reviewers I also heard about Dish from the Triple D. Finally had a chance to stop in. Potato poppers weren't even on the radar, but wife and I wanted to try something different. Deep fried mashed potatoes w/ cheese goodness. The chicken and dumplings and Mac n Cheese were spot on and so was the... More

We went to see a concert at Oven's and wanted a neat place to eat and trusted our fellow Trip Advisor partners, and we were so glad.. The place is funky, with a great, relaxed feel... The food was fun, and GREAT.. Service was outstanding, and prices very reasonable.. Don't bring stuffy uptight guests here, as they won't get it,... More

St. Partick's Day cornbeef and cabbage were prefect here. Came for lunch to try this place out after hearing several friends say how great the home style meals are here. The place is nice and has a family feel friendly atmosphere. Everyone greets you as you walk in and wish you a good day when leaving. A trait I don't... More

The meatloaf was luke warm and looked and taste as it was from a couple of days ago. I like leftovers especially meatloaf but this was not good. The mash potato concoction was not dried out. The biscuit tasted awesome but it's not baked through and doughy inside. I will try again because Heather was very cool. The hostess with... More

This is another of Charlotte's great indie food scene. The restaurant has a fun, artsy vibe, frequented by local, and the food is southern (with some healthy twists). Most plates come with 1-2 sides you can pick from a list. Highly recommend trying the cheesy grits (it was an experience for a Yankee like me) TIP: Chicken and Dumplings is... More

Dish is located in a very modest, unassuming structure on the outskirts of the city. But what awaits the diner is some very excellent home cooked food at extremely reasonable prices. May I recommend starting off your meal with a half dozen deviled eggs? This will set the tone for what is yet to come. I ordered chopped liver (of... More

Dish is located in an unassuming, near downtown area of Charlotte. This is the type of place that has a plain atmosphere, but you go for the food. This is good 'ole downhome Southern cooking. As one companion noted, they must have a bunch of grandmas back in the kitchen -- cooking. The Country Fried Steak was obviously homemade --... More
