The Little Dipper1. The Little Dipper

Fondue | Wilmington, Wilmington

Little Dipper is my favorite restaurant! We eat there multiple times each year, every year for my birthday. This was my first time doing the Ladies Night for my birthday with a a girlfriend and I loved it! The prices were perfect. Sometimes it's too expensive to go often but with the Ladies Night deal, we will be back! Only complaint was that we were asked to leave. We had been sitting down at the table still for 15 mind mom's eprobably after our check was taken care of. But we made a reservation for a nice dinner, and conversation should be a part of that. We understood that ladies night is busy but we also saw lots of empty tables. Little Dipper is still my favorite restaurant and we will definitely return! We just won't plan to talk afterwards. More

Excellent food and service! Price point was rather high for portion size even with 1/2 off oysters. I'd go there again but i'll be more prepared for the sticker shock. More

Discover Coastal North Carolina

The coastal region of North Carolina is a vacation magnet, and food is big business all along the shoreline. Fresh seafood establishments abound in this area, with many of them catering directly to the visitors as much as the locals. Steakhouses are also very common along the coast for those looking for a great cut prepared just right. The South is barbeque country, and you can add the North Carolina coast to the list, as barbecue smokehouses are plentiful and usually found in a bar-and-grill setting. International food is also a very popular choice along the North Carolina coast. Selections include Thai, German, Indian, and even Peruvian cuisine. Of course, there are many national chain establishments as well as locally owned family restaurants and combination eateries for those wanting something quick.
