Great building and fun atmosphere

The service is poor, the prices are high and the food is meh but I come back every year when I pass through the area. Stick with a burger and forget about the steaks or other more expensive entres (you will probably be disappointed). Often times they have live music and it is a vacation crowd so... read more

We ate at the Dixie Saloon for lunch midweek July. BBQ Sandwich, Chicken Sandwich and a burger all came out quickly as ordered. The place was busy. Second floor has a better view and seems more relaxed!

1. My husband's food arrived luke warm - then half way through he found a metal shaving in his fries. Waitress said she personally couldn't do anything about it, had to get manager. We were in a hurry (and disgusted because this wasn't the first issue of the night) so we didn't bother waiting to find manager. 2. Noticed our... More

The service was OK. She was new but a smile would help. We ordered prime rib and perch as one meal and New York strip & ribs as the other. Both were ordered medium. Both were very over cooked. The prime rib was a thick cut of meat. There is no way anyone should've been able to over cook it... More

We ate here recently while on vacation. We have two children under 4, so it wasn't the ideal eatery with hungry kids. The wait was a bit longer than they would have liked, but the food was good. Our food was delivered warm, and there were no leftovers to be had. I would have loved to have tried a cheeseburger,... More

After having an awesome experience drinking at Oreillys pub in the afternoon, my hubby and I decided to have dinner at the Dixie. Our waiter was Dan and he did a fantastic job! His quirky personality and comical behavior made for a very fun and entertaining dinner. We will be back!

Great location. Decent service. I recommend the potato-encrusted whitefish. Bring a marker to write your name on the wall.

We got to the saloon and our table was dirty. We got our drinks and my pop glass was dirty (there was something dried up inside my glass) after I drank most of it.

We were there in June and enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back. The food was very good, the servers friendly and accommodating and a menu offering a little bit of everything. Not a place for quiet conversation, it's a bit loud, but a fun place to go for a good time and beautiful views from the window seats... More
