Our 2nd Choice Turned Out To Be A Very Good Choice

On January 4th, 2016, my wife and I were meeting our son (who lives in Plaza Midwood) for dinner. We usually have him pick the restaurant because he eats out more than us and makes it a point not to dine at chain restaurants. Because parking can be tough, he told us to park on Pecan just off of... read more

Our server, Jesse, was great. But other than that, I was not impressed. Inside the feel is like you've walked into your grandma's house, but she hasnt lived there for a good 10 years. I understand the trying to be hipster vibe, but it's a little too grungy. I ordered chicken and dumplings with mac and cheese. The chicken and... More

Great food, especially the chicken and dumplings downed by my wife and barely a bite shared with me. I had the cajun meatloaf, perfectly spiced. Affordable, family friendly and fun!

I have been to Dish several times, and I feel bad for not writing a review sooner. Whenever I am in Plaza/MIdwood area, I always end up at Dish, even though there are other restaurants to try. The 3 reasons are 1) The steady service; 2) The constant good food (I am a big fan of the chicken livers); 3)... More

A group of us went to Dish to have a little Christmas party. The food is really good, laid back atmosphere, and the staff is usually very friendly. It's not a place where you expect a lot from a server accept common courtesy and a good attitude. Our waitress started off on a good note and was very pleasant. It... More

This was my first time here - a friend bringing me to one of her favorite places to eat. I liked that the atmosphere was not that of a chain restaurant and that the menu was diverse. Our server was personable and professional which always adds to a positive experience. Since it's hard to find green tomatoes in December, I... More

This place is small located on side street in the Midwood neighborhood. Food is good and kind of quirky. Good place to try for something different.

Decided to try this restaurant for Saturday brunch, my son, brother and myself. Son had shrimp and grits, I had grilled livers (mashed cauliflower and salad as sides), bother had bacon and eggs. We also had the kale dip and potato poppers as table appetizers. Appetizers excellent, the kale dip was similar to a spinach dip, but tastier, the potato... More

Heard great things from friends about this place. Finally my wife and I thought we would try it out and now it's once of our favorite spots in Charlotte. Great home cooking with great servers who are very friendly. Very affordable as well.
