We visited The Little Dipper while in Wilmington for my sister's bachelorette trip. The food was great and our waiter was awesome. He helped us order the right amount of food for a large crowd. The atmosphere is great for a small group! Reservations are...More

This was a long evening and we were delightfully stuffed at the end. We had several different fondue specials and every one was perfect. The server was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

Not worth the price. Went with a few friends for a date night. If I go back it will just be for dessert.

Great birthday dinner for my daughter-in-law. We loved everything about it...the service, the atmosphere, the food, the drinks. Even a free piece of pie for the BD girl!! I was most intrigued by how great the various dipping sauces were for our meats. Can't wait...More

This is the first time I ever tried a fondue restaurant. Gives you ample time to talk with people at your table. It's a good concept. Food was average at best. It is fun, but overpriced for what it is.

The management and service is great which speaks volumes alone. However, here is my ranking of their food from best to worst. Salads (yes, it was the best thing we ate), Dessert (nothing special but still tasty...don't bother getting the cheesecake though, not worth it),...More
