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

Great place for lunch. It's always busy but it's worth the wait. Their sliders and shrimp and grits are both delicious.

We grabbed breakfast at Dixie Grill on Friday morning while visiting Wilmington. We love the food and the unique atmosphere. A small storefront restaurant one block away from the riverfront, we've never had a bad experience at Dixie. Our go-to menu selection is often The Dixie, which is simply eggs, grits or home fries, bacon, and toast. The bacon can... More

Our favorite place to eat in the whole wide world. Travelled all over the place. Food is great for breakfast and lunch and Louisiana hash is great. Staff always very attentive. Laid back atmosphere . Worth waiting for. Fox

It close at 3:00 pm, but they will serve you even if you arrive at the last minute. It's a 50's style diner, and fun to eat in. The servers are friendly and efficient. I had the Verduras meal, eggs over veggies and black beans. My brother had eggs with their homemade sausage patty, which he enjoyed. My niece had... More

We walked up to the Dixie Grill just as the doors were opening. We were about the 4th table of people to walk in and within about 30 minutes there were only 2 tables open. We knew we had picked the right place for breakfast when a local police officer walked in behind us to have breakfast. The food was... More

Voted best breakfast in Wilmington but not sure.... the food was good and portions were big but not sure will return. Then again, might have been an off day so probably will.
