2nd time is a charm

Got the daily special fried mahi with veggies and mash potatoes. The fish was very good and a nice portion. The sides are awesome as always at Dish. The homemade key lime pie was awesome. This was a follow-up visit since my first visit wasn't as expected. This met.the expectations. Will be back.

Love this place. My wife and I ate there last week and it was awesome. Great food and deserts, you can tell they care about the quality of food. The wait staff was extremely friendly. Do yourself a favor and try this great flavor.

Located in the Plaza Midwood section of Charlotte, this restaurant first came to my attention on an episode of Triple D--Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Not a drive in, certainly not a dive, but a good old fashioned diner. While I will proudly claim to be a Tar Hell born, I have to admit that collard greens have ever been at... More

I went here alone today for lunch. I heard about it from Food Network. Its a small cozy place off central just outside Uptown. I was greeted immediately after i walked in the door. Someone seated me within two minutes. My server was super friendly. I began with the potato poppers. I got a side of horseradish dill sauce. They... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a recent visit to Charlotte. We had the Fried Green Tomatoes and Parmesan Potato Poppers as an appetizer. The tomatoes were fried to perfection and were served with a horseradish dill sauce. The potato poppers, which I do not recall ever eating anything like them, were delicious!! These were served with... More

I was very pleased with my visit to Dish. The waitress and the hostess were friendly and made us feel at home. Our waitress was funny and had a great personality, her service was great and she kept our drinks filled up. The food was delicious. The only thing I can say about the blackened chicken I had was it... More

My title says it all! This place is in the heart of Plaza Midwood area of Charlotte on Thomas Street and a must try if needing some great home-cooked food!! The staff is incredibly amazing to boot! Meatloaf, deviled eggs, collared greens, mashed potatoes. #heaven

I've never been here before and saw a sign outside that read "my neck, my back, my meatloaf and my Mac" I just had to stop in. Who doesn't love sexy comfort food? I ordered the Cajun meatloaf with sides of mashed potatos, and Mac n cheese. The Cajun meatloaf was delicious and had kick👌.The mashed potatos were real and... More

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.
