We ate at Libby's on our way to Baltimore. Absolutely worth the stop. I was most impressed with older gentleman at the register who called most of the patrons by name. It's in a urban neighborhood which seemed reasonably harmless. The restaurant was packed with...More

If you want a great breakfast, cheap then you need to go to Libby's. Libby still cooks in the kitchen and the staff is wonderful. It's like you were eating at your grandma;s house. 3 of us ate there for breakfast and the bill was...More

We ate here on the recommendation of TripAdvisor. Even though it is a popular local downtown spot we were seated right away. Tasty homestyle breakfast and excellent prices. Fantastic service too by our waitresses. We definitely would dine here again when we are in Wilmington!

Libby's is a hole-in-the-wall kind of place just off the gentrified Market Street downtown, with regulars taking up the tables in two rooms and waitresses who've been there for decades. The decor is as basic as the menu: plain brown tables and wooden chairs on...More

This place was great and I would definitely come back. I paid less than six dollars for my chicken salad. It was a very large portion, in fact I could not finish it all. The staff was very friendly. Seems like a very locals-only spot,...More
