We ate here while vacationing in the area. I was a little concerned about taking our 3 year old to a fondue restaurant, but the staff was more than accommodating and she enjoyed herself as much as we did. Our server went out of her way to chat with her and make her feel important, too, and our food was brought out promptly.
Great food and service. The only negative thing to say that their was an extremely noisy group that spoiled some otherwise nice ambience
Little Dipper was amazing! The food was fantastic and our waiter was very friendly and helped us navigate the menu since it was our first visit. We went for a friend’s birthday lunch and had a great time. The cocktails were also great! I would highly recommend this cozy fondue spot!
Excellent as always. We’ve been goi Nd for 10 years and never had a bad time.
Late night out for my birthday!
We vacation to a nearby beach every year and always make sure we come into town and eat dinner at the Little Dipper. The food is always great and well worth the price. Our kids always look forward to it as well!
A pleasure as always, first choice for special occasions
Little Dipper never disappoints. The food & service are excellent as well as the cocktails.
First time for us !
Absolutely wonderful!! Food, ambiance, cleanness, staff very accommodating and friendly.
Wish we spent more time in Wilmington since the whole area is gorgeous.
When we go back (for vacation ) we'll have dinner here again.
we'll definitely recommend the place to friends visiting the area.
Great service. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us pick the perfect meal. Wonderful experience. Thank you so much.
Great fondue restaurant nestled right near the boardwalk waterfront in wilmington. Much better experience and feel than the large chain restaurants like it. Food was great and service was even better. Very relaxed atmosphere.
We went for my birthday and it was awesome. Samantha, our waitress, gave us a very enjoyable and laid back experience even though the options can be confusing to the uninitiated. Overall a wonderful dining experience.
I had a nice trip to The Little Dipper. My friends and I went for Ladies' Night, when you can get cheese and chocolate for $10. It's a great deal and you get a decent amount of food. Add-ons are available. We had a nice server and enjoyed the ambiance. I would go back again for Ladies' Night.
We always come here when we visit Wilmington NC. As always, the food and service were incredibly good - I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for something a little different and adventurous in dining. Only downside for me was the cocktails were pretty weak, but still tasty.
After an afternoon of shopping with a friend we had planned ahead and reserved table for 6:00 pm. We arrived and we were awkwardly seated at a one-sided table for two facing a short wall. This was more a table for a romantic couple. We asked to be seated at another table and they did accommodate us. The waiter was proud to tell us of the local produce the restaurant uses.
There was plenty of food but the disappointment after was the wait took anything we did not eat quickly off the table. I felt like we paid for it - wrap it up - or did they give the bread cubes and raw broccoli to someone else? Same with our entree, we had raw chicken left over and cooked it in the fondue to take home but the waiter took all the sauces off the table leaving us to bring home plain, bland boiled chicken. Again, I felt like we paid for it we should be able to get a box for all of our leftovers.
Always a great time dining here. First time doing Locals Night, which was less hectic than Ladies Night. Thank you!
Was a wonderful way to celebrate our birthdays together. It was my soon to be 8 yr old son’s first time & it was great to see the staff also including him
Great server suggestions, very private experience
The restaurant was really nice. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. Each course of the meal was delicious. This restaurant is highly recommended.
We are always more than satisfied after a dinner at The Little Dipper. The menu selection is fabulous, the fresh ingredients make the meal extra tasty and the food is always amazing! The portions are reasonable for the price and everything is delicious. We appreciated the variety that is offered of meats, cheese choices and sauces. We like to try 6 different sauces between us! I always enjoy the seasonal beverages. The dessert is simply amazing, no other way to describe it. Thank you, The Little Dipper, for making an evening with friends a memorable one.
Another fun evening on the books at the Little Dipper. A must do when in Wilmington for sure.
My wife and myself have been to several fondue restaurants for special meals or just for date night. We enjoy both fun and different places for these occasions, and THE LITTLE DIPPER fits right in. We were serviced by Whitney who did a GREAT job all the through our meal from start to finish. She was very friendly and helpful knew what to offer and when to offer it (example there were having cheese and chocolate night and she asked if we were there for special or meal. Then helped with right dinner for the two of us). It was the middle of the week and the place was half full when we got there and when we left people were wait for a tables. We will go back again, and would will tell others. THANK YOU WHITNEY FOR A GREAT TIME keep up the good work!!!!
Great experience and food. Was a recommendation by a local and we really enjoyed it. Our waiter was awesome. He was very personable and took care of everything.
Little dipper is always good. The service is also well. Unfortunately groups of 5 or more should not be inside as the noise they make is too much for smaller groups to be able to hear their people talk.
My experience at Little Dipper is always a great one! The servers are always very nice and the food has never let me down!
I love the Little Dipper! Excellent setting, service, and food.
Great food and service.
We had a great dining experience however we did have to wait 30 mins. Past our reservation time to be seated.
It is an excellent restaurant and experience. The BEST Fondue restaurant ever. Great variety of sauces for dipping and cooking.
Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and atmosphere. This is not a "dine and dash" kind of dinner. Plan on at least 1 1/2 hours and enjoy it. It's nice because you have time to talk to your dining companions.
I love this place! My husband and I come here Every time we are in Wilmington. Always awesome service, and delicious food! Great date location!
Awesome restaurant, staff was super nice, food was great, the waitress was very helpful im helping us with our selections and the dessert was delicious. I’ve never eaten at a fondue restaurant before and were on vacation found this restaurant online and the reviews were excellent so we gave it a try amd extremely happy we did. Make a reservation and expect to be there about 1 1/2 to 2 hours you won’t be disappointed & The sangria is really good give it a try.
We make sure to go to The Little Dipper at least once a month just for fun. Service is always friendly and their seasonal menu is a fun way to mix things up. Always look forward to our next visit!
Great food and service. We love dining at the Little Dipper and will certainly go back.
Waiter wasn't knowledgeable on drink specials and it wasn't explained to us that the basic broth was still an additional charge (even though you have to have a broth to cook with?), but still overall great experience.
Good food and service
Our server Henry was great and the food was delicious! This restaurant is a must in Wilmington!
Great experience and different!!! Samantha gave great recommendations on food selection! Loved the place...
definitely I will return. This is a must if u come to Wilmington area.
