We got lucky and found on street parking when we stopped here about 11:30. The specials of the day included peanut butter and banana pancakes and buffalo chicken flatbread, but we decided to order from the menu. My husband ordered breakfast: eggs, stone ground grits, bacon, and a biscuit. Each item was perfectly prepared. I ordered lunch, the Redd: a... More

We were looking for a good place to grab breakfast before a college tour at UNCW and decided on The Dixie Grill. The food was quick and delicious - sweet potato pancakes, fresh fruit, omelettes - all were so good. Coffee was great and the best part - the grits were amazing - we are tough grits critics and these... More

I am a regular at Dixie. I love everything I have ever tried here. The food is excellent, service is fast, prices are great, and the staff is wonderful. My favorite is the hostess - that girl works harder than anyone I've ever seen. She runs a tight ship and makes sure no one has to wait longer than necessary.

My wife and I went to Myrtle Beach for vacation. We drove up to Wilmington (about an hour drive). Upon arrival we were hungry and walked in having never heard of the Dixie Grill. We loved it so much we ate there the next day also. I had the Ruben Sandwich and it was incredible. Serves breakfast all day.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our visit here for a special breakfast. We didn't have to wait long even though it was obvious that this is a popular place. The sweet potato pancakes filled the whole plate with their delicious fluffiness! The banana pecan French toast was amazing! My daughter loved her breakfast sandwich and cheese grits. The grill atmosphere is... More

Wandering along the side streets near the waterfront in Wilmington afforded us the opportunity to choose this restaurant for a quick lunch. The atmosphere was that of a homey, been there forever grill/restaurant. The menu was varied, the service very good and the pricing appropriate. I would happily recommend the Dixie Grill as a good choice for breakfast any time... More
