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!
SEASONAL HOURS: Open EVERY DAY Late Spring through Early Fall 5pm for dinner
Amazing place! Great service and great food, I’ve been here plenty of times and it never disappoints!
Service was amazing
So much improved than last time, but I had a different server.
First time I went was last October for my anniversary. The second time was this week and we plan on taking some friends next month.
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.
I have had this server 2 times on my visits
And she seems to rush us out . I’m have just had other servers there that do not make me feel that
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!
Everything was perfect. My husband had a great bday dinner. Wait staff were also just as amazing. Can’t wait to come back and visit.
We sat at the date dinner table and the ambience , food and service was perfect!
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.
Excellent meal, with exceptional service
A lovely birthday dinner!
Normally I absolutely love this restaurant, especially for special occasions. My husband was so happy to get a nice table reserved on my birthday (he booked it back in March). Our favorite table 1 was booked so we settled for table 10. I have to say though, it was ladies night and pretty loud - the waiter we had made us feel rushed and honestly seemed as if he could care less that we were there for a special occasion and spending a decent amount of money on dinner and a bottle of wine! He never mentioned what the ladies night special was by the way, we asked why they were so busy and another waitress told us what the special was (but we had already ordered)! My husband mentioned it was my birthday when he made the reservation and when we sat down, then after the waiter brought the bill he had to “ask” if they could bring me a desert for my birthday! It was awkward! Not to mention that the food was not nearly as good as it has been before, the lobster was small and a bit over cooked and we seriously had 4 pieces of potatoes and 4 carrots and 2 small pieces of broccoli on the side( I should have taken a picture! The ladies there for “ladies night” had bigger servings for $9 compared to our $80 dinner (we bought a $40 bottle of wine too). Anyhow, we were not impressed at all this time, I guess we will have to find a new special occasion place to celebrate and feel special :/
Was here for the local special of chocolate and cheese. Added bonus of the shecrab soup.
Great food and ambiance! Such a wonderful local spot. Definitely takes a little longer than an average meal since it’s fondue but it is a great experience!
Wonderful dinner. The food was amazing and the service top notch
Yearly reunion with my sister from San Diego CA. We enjoyed our night in Wilmington so much. Thanks!
This restaurant was amazing! The food was perfectly portioned and delicious. Our server Carrie was attentive, friendly, and all around exceptional. I would highly recommend this place!
Fantastic food and even better service! Great value for the money also. We got the Thursday 4 course $27.00 special and it was so worth it! Great job!!
First time at a fondue restaurant and the staff was extremely helpful. Food was delicious and was a fun experience.
Sara was a great server! Answered all of our questions. Made some great suggestions. Went early which was nice. It got louder as the evening went on.
Excellent service. Great for special occasions otherwise not in the typical budget. Very small space and very noisy. My daughter enjoyed it which was all that mattered. Thank you.
We love the Little Dipper and go quite often! You guys should have a rewards card or loyalty program!
The waiter was friendly and prepared us for the fondue experience.
What a wonderful dining experience in downtown Wilmington. The staff were all very friendly with the gift of hospitality. I highly recommend this for a special dining experience. We will definitely be back!
Excellent food, excellent service. Highly recommended, you will not regret going here. There are so many varieties of cheese and chocolate, it's hard to recommend just one. But the fluffernutter is so good!!
We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful experience! The food was great, romantic atmosphere, and superb service!
Food was great, but the quantity of food for appetizer and dessert didn't quite match with entree. Portion was plentiful for cheese appetizer and dessert, but it was sparse for main entree. Still delicious though. There was also a crying baby in our section, which affected our noise quality rating, but that's not something that really needs addressing (it happens, that's life). Really enjoyed our visit overall. Again, food was delicious, and the staff were exemplary.
The food was excellent. The service was fantastic. Our anniversary dinner was so very enjoyable. We love The Little Dipper!
Our waiter was absolutely fantastic, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be going back.
Took my 8yr old daughter there for their ladies night special. Our server Carri was so sweet and engaged my daughter in the fondue experience! We had a great evening!
Took advantage of a local special while visiting Wilmington. Great little spot, customer service is always awesome here. My one suggestion would be to have the lights more dim for a better dining experience.
Awesome fondue venue!!! Great service, wonderful food, and super atmosphere. Always a favorite to take guests for a taste of Wilmington.
As always The Little Dipper never disappoints. Great for special occasions or just a relaxing date night.
This was my first fondue experience. It was outstanding. Our server took the time to explain the process. We felt cared for. All staff was very interested in making our experience a great one. I highly recommend your restaurant.
Excellent service, amazing food and a great time. Definitely going back every time we have the chance! At first glance, entrees look on the pricier side, however you get essentially a 3 course meal for the price and it’s really a bang for the buck. Loved it!
The Little Dipper remains one of our favorites in Wilmington. Get your reservation early, though, and come hungry. It’s often hard to get a same-day reservation.
I still prefer the melting pot over this-although they don't have as many dipping sauces as as you do to choose from.
Amazing as always
Brilliant dinner. Only drawback was server didn't tell us any of the specials. Then again, maybe it was my bad for not asking. Otherwise, WONDERFUL as always. This was the centerpiece of my wife's birthday.
