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!

The service, atmosphere and food were all Amazon! Though it is pricey, it’s more of an experience than anything. We had fun and enjoyed eating at the Little Dipper. Will for sure be back.

The fondue is delicious and the service is friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant highly over chain type fondue restaurants which are not as good and much pricier.

Very enjoyable dinner. I am not a fan of Fondue restaurants but this was a very good experience and will definitely come back. Have already recommend to my friends and adult son and his wife. Service was also very good.

Just wanted to thank The Little Dipper for making my daughter's 16th birthday celebration great! She and her friends had a wonderful time! And they said their waiter, I believe his name was Logan, was the best!

One of my families favorite places in Wilmington to eat! Food and service are always wonderful! It is in an old building so it can be a little noisy, but it has never bothered us. Great place for a quick fondue or a celebration. Wonderful wine list!

We have been enjoying dinners at the little dipper for over 10 years on special occasions. We always leave with full tummies and happy hearts. The wait staff seems hand picked, always personable and ready to make your evening memorable. It's a great restaurant, the food is consistently delicious. The ambiance is very nice but the room can get a little loud at times. It's a special spot and we will continue to enjoy it for years to come!

Waitress wasn't very helpful with explaining things, they didn't have the food we ordered thawed out, the sauces were nothing special, and our waitress spilled bloody steak juice on my husband. Also seemed way over priced for the amount of food you actually get.

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and wanted to go someplace special, this fit the bill! I had a Lemon Drop Martini and was very pleased with the drink. Many places will use a sweet and sour mix, not here, it was very good! We also enjoyed the meal, the food was fresh, all the courses were delivered on time and our server was very pleasant and attentive!

The Little Dipper is always our favorite for special occasions and we’re always pleasantly surprised by the dinner selection and how well that is able to taste! Definitely recommend getting your waiter/waitresses sauce recommendations even if u get them every time, you can always learn something new and delicious
