Fondue
An experience you won't find at any other restaurant in Wilmington - unique, bold and fun...Fondue! The Little Dipper's menu consists of premium meats, fresh seafood, vegetables and homemade sauces for dipping. Dip organic bread into hot melted cheddar cheese with beer, garlic and spices, prepared tableside by your server. Indulge in blackened filet with a warm au pouivre, sashimi grade tuna dipped in Asian ginger sauce or shrimp drenched in wasabi lime aioli. For dessert don't pass up strawberries dipped in milk chocolate, or bananas dipped in warm dark chocolate blended with smooth peanut butter.

The dining environment is casual and hip with bright colors and rich cherry wood. Each table is handmade with built-in electric burners where the guests cook together in one common fondue pot. Whether you are with a large group celebration or out for an intimate dinner for two, Fondue is special and different! Join us soon and get hooked!

    Traveling from out of state we returned to Wilmington mostly to eat here. It is a million times tastier and easier on the wallet, with great portion sizes, than the nationally known fondue chain.

    Great experience! We ordered the Full Moon for two. Our server was incredible and made the timing of our appetizers, soups and main course seamless! We thoroughly enjoyed and will be back!

    It was very loud and requested to move tables before we sat down but they refused. We really liked the cheese and dessert. The homemade sauces were just ok.
