Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Southeast Calgary
Description: With its warm intimate atmosphere that caters to all, this is a place to gather, share stories, laugh and of course have a pint or two! The fireplaces roar in the winter and patio is popular in the summer. The HD TV’s with stereo sound are always playing your favorite sporting events, or music channels. There are VLT’s for your playing pleasure. The extensive menu holds traditional and popular meals such as our Yorkshire Tidbit & Chicken, Leek & Bacon Boxty. For the more contemporary customer the selection of soups, salads, wraps, and sandwiches is divine. Gluten free buns are available upon request! With a selection of over 30 beers plus a fine wine and liquor menu, not to mention the happy hour from 2 to 6pm weekdays and 4 to 6pm on weekends, you will find yourself in your new favourite local pub!

I hate to actually give this restaurant more of my time, but I am livid. We went there for breakfast one morning, the restaurant was EMPTY. The waitress forgot to put or order in, too busy flirting over in the corner. If she had asked us ONCE for a fill up on coffee, maybe she would have clued in on " oh, these people don't have their food yet, odd". When her brain finally kicked in, she came over, confused looking, and a light went off. She told us she forgot to put in the order in and if we would want to reorder....no offer for free coffee, food, voucher, i'm sorry, nothing but rudeness from the waitress. I emailed Melissa Gallant, the general manager, over and over and over......nothing. Sad that this is part of of chain really great pubs in Calgary. I could say amazing things for all the other ones...Limericks, kilkenny, etc. Ms Gallant, you fail in customer service and owning up for the poor service you manage.

Breakfast at Dixons Pub in south Calgary is an incredible experience. They serve the big breakfast every weekend for 6 bucks, you cannot beat that anywhere in Calgary. The girls that work there remember who we are and make sure if our friends get there before us that they seat them at Ron and Lori's table for breakfast, how is that for fantastic service. I highly suggest Dixon's as one of your breakfast stops and also any time during the day, it is great service and a great atmosphere.

Great food and great service. The people here aren't phony and rude, they are extremely friendly and welcoming. I really enjoy this pub, the atmosphere is great, and the food is great! Definitely recommend!

First, with a Tim Horton's in front there is no place to park, inside was noisy and crowded with uncomfortable little chairs and wobbly tables. Service was good, but the food took 45 minutes to arrive. I'm a big eater, and this is the first place the food was do bad I couldn't finish my meal. I have been going to this place about once every 4 months for about 10 years, it used to be quite good, but I'm afraid it's finally hit rock bottom. I won't be back.
