All of our dishes were great, and the southern tastes were given an enthusiastic thumbs up from my wife, who is from New Orleans. She did say her grits were better than the grits served here. Our server was very competent and helpful. Our biggest disappointment was that the last piece of key lime pie sold before my daughter ordered.... More

We stopped at Dixie's before heading down to a concert at the Ordway and sat in the bar area-very nice atmosphere. Our server was prompt and attentive but not overly so. My friend ordered the gumbo and I had the catfish mini tacos. We were both impressed with our food and its timely arrival. The drink list was extensive and... More

My sister was in town and after going to Como zoo we were looking for an open patio in the sun..Dixie's filled the bill.. In all fairness they have Minnetoaized the southern menu..it was good but needed more character....I had Gumbo and it took a lot of Tabasco sauce to perk it up. my sister had a pulled pork sandwich...

Met another couple at Dixie's as a theme get together (catch up what each of did and saw during recent visits to New Orleans). Also, this was a our first time back to Dixie's in a number of years and found that they've made the place more up-scale which is ok but some of the old charm was lost. There... More

Have not been here for some time. Still a nice place. Fried green tomatoes, yummy. Gumbo, which was good, but different as I expected some seafood, but all meat and sausage no seafood, vegetables in a buttery roux sauce.

We ate here for brunch, 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 5. The selection was good and most of the food delicious. A general consensous was that the eggs were too mushy, but everyone loved the chicken, breakfast potatoes and the biscuts and gravy. The $24.95 price tag may seem a bit high, but we felt for...

I've been to this place a couple of times, unfortunately it seems to be getting less desirable. It's also known as "Dixie's on Grand". Today the place wasn't very busy during lunch hour, but it still took a very long time to get our order in. We were inside and being served by the bartender - there were only a... More

Very good food, delicious fried chicken and ribs. All staff were nice, no service complaints at all. Everything was clean. Fun atmosphere, I can see this being a regular spot of ours if we lived in the area.

Great southern food at a reasonable price. The jerky is fantastic. I have eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. Love the Sunday brunch it has everything from pancakes to red beans and rice.
