We were met by a funky smell of mold or something old. Food was horrible. Wait staff was inattentive. Also expensive for what it was.

Cute inside and there are a few tables outside. Ordered the blue burger, was a bit overdone. Fried tomatoes and cheeseburger were good. Next visit I'll order breakfast for lunch, those dishes looked interesting. Bathroom needs attention, lock didn't work.

Always visit Dixie Grill when I'm in Wilmington. The food is great value and large portions. We stopped for lunch and had the turkey meatloaf and fried pickles - delish! Tried the black bean burger that was equally as good. Great sweet potato fries. Lunch is not as crowded as other times. It is a great Sunday morning breakfast spot.... More

If you want a GREAT breakfast right in downtown Wilmington, this is the place. It has been remodeled and expanded and as usual, you can't beat it for breakfast.

We were in Wilmington this weekend and just happened to walk into the Dixie Grill. From the outside it look like an old place that would have bad greasy food. But boy, were we "Surprised".

This is always a good pick for us when we visit Wilmington. The food is terrific and there is a lot of it for the price! My husband had the corn beef hash and said it was probably the best he'd ever eaten. This is a really good pick for anyone staying in the downtown area.

Well worth our short wait on a Monday a 115. Our service left a little to be desired but it wasn't awful. The food was delicious. It's a diner with a bar, so nothing fancy but all delicious. We had a black and bleu burger, the club and a greek salad. The club was huge, definitely could have shared as... More
