Good Service, good food, excellent coffee - bacon, eggs biscuit & grits - tasty waffle per dining mate. Nothing special - prices a bit high.

I normally eat breakfast at this place and sometimes lunch. The food is always good and reasonably priced. Great downtown location.

Dixie Benedict with friend green tomatoes, hon. Super serving staff. Amazing atmosphere! I wouldn't visit Wilmington, NC, without working this in to at least one morning's agenda.

We were waiting at 8am for the door to open and were seated right away. I ordered French toast with strawberries and pecans, which was awsome

We tried several different breakfast places, but landed on The Dixie Grill. Definitely the best place in our opinion. Good for families or couples. Good coffee. Great staff!! Very good selection of breakfast foods...and they are tasty...try the biscuits and sausage gravy if you aren't afraid of a few calories.

Worth the wait for this quirky downtown breakfast spot . Cool vibe and great food selections, although the breakfast potatoes were dry and bland. That was the only miss in an otherwise excellent breakfast experience.
