We met up with a friend that lives in Charlotte and she recommended Dish for lunch. It was a scorcher and the restaurant was full, so opted to sit on the patio. No one told our waitress that we were out there, so it was a while before we saw anyone. Our waitress was very apologetic and a great sport.... More

After much debating about where to eat dinner (with a little help from Food Network), my mother and I decided on Dish. We were from out of town and wanted to try somewhere we'd never been. The server explained the specials and answered questions about the menu. I ordered the Cajun Veggie Loaf with mashed potatoes and chose mac and... More

I tried Dish because I had seen the segment on DDD, and was very happy that I did. I happened to be in Charlotte on business and tried it out on a Wednesday evening. I got there about 6:00 and was seated immediately, but it seemed to be filling up by the time I was leaving. Mickey, my server, did... More

No, this restaurant isn't new, but we found it recently, and just can't stop going there! Every dinner has been great! You always get good food whether it's an entree, vegetables (my personal fav!), or dessert! And the waitstaff are always friendly.

One of my favorite restaurants in town. Makes you feel like you are sitting in your grandma's kitchen on a warm summer day..

A great place for home-style Southern cooking! The decor was charming as well. It's been a couple months since I visited Charlotte and I'm still thinking about those shrimp and grits...so delicious!

Got great reviews from my travel companions. Being a vegetarian..I could only order a set a sides...which turned out to be a good option...of course it included the traditional sides of collards, mac n cheese, smokey lima beans, slaw, deviled eggs, etc! Was not as spicy or flavored for what I like..as even the veg. options could have been kicked... More

Visiting Charlotte for a concert and got a recommendation from a friend that we had to try Dish while in town. Glad we listened! Walked in to smiling faces and quaint country charm that feels like Grandma's house! Cute decorations and an impressive amount of awards on the wall ranging from "best food" to "Best LGBT friendly restaurant" and even... More

I don't know quite where to start, but I guess discussing the sweet tea is a logical place since this is what I first tasted. It was the perfect blend of tea and sugar, not too sweet, not too bitter...just right. Fried chicken was excellent and the collards were HANDS DOWN the best I have ever had in a restaurant.... More

Decorating reminds you of grandmother's or your youth. Pimento cheese is to die for. Saturday brunch can't be beat. Get there early if you don't want to wait in line. I like grilled liver or chicken & dumplings. Also has plenty of vegetables and other entrees.
