Sometimes it's not easy to find a good breakfast in a historic town. But we found that Dixie Grill was our place! They have a great breakfast selection! And everything we ordered arrived HOT and delicious!! The Dixie Grill was a great choice!

Popped in to get a takeaway. We had a drink at the bar whilst we waited. The food was fabulous. I had ordered a sandwich which came with (sweet potato - lovely) fries and a big salad. Good price and service

Cute little diner. Busy! Great staff, great food. The grits were just right, eggs cooked to order, potatoes were very good. This is THE place for breakfast.

The place is been rated the best breakfast for consecutive years. I know why. The mushroom, swiss cheese and bacon omelette was delicious. It was huge. The grits were cooked to perfection. My wife's Farm Omelette looked scrumptious and it was also big that she could not eat it all. It is seat yourself and the service was fine. If... More

I loved this place. It's a busy hole-in-wall with a lot of charm. I went for the Dixie Benedict - which came with everything I wanted – biscuits, fried green tomatoes, scrambled eggs, vidalia onion gravy, and I splurged with bacon and home fries. Heaven.

We were met by a funky smell of mold or something old. Food was horrible. Wait staff was inattentive. Also expensive for what it was.
