when we traveled to barrys bay there was not a ton of food options on the fly the kids picked up subway and we choose to venture into dixie lee. The food was good and the place was packed, after the kids finished subs they started digging into my chicken and were kicking themselves for not eating there.

After a long drive it was a relief to find the restaurant open at 9am on a Sunday, and it was a surprise to find that Dixie Lee serves breakfast. At the counter I ordered a cheese omelet and found a table. Most of the patrons were wearing hunting attire, and at least one couple was from New York State judging from the license plate of the RV outside. This Dixie Lee functions as a gathering place for the locals and a stop off for tourists.

The cheese omelet was up to the standard and it came with spuds, toast, coffee and a refill all for $7.90. The waitresses were nice, washrooms clean, it had Wi-Fi, and the whole place was kept up. The restaurant is on HWY 60 and in the middle of town and there are some cool railroad artifacts and photo ops across the street.

It was 'fast food' so expectations weren't high. I was surprised that POS included a request for tip (I'm not used to that in the US) at the time of order so I entered an amount. Should not have done that...waitress brought soda in a can but no glass so I asked for glass and it was noisily plopped on table. Catsup bottle almost empty and another was requested including 'please' and again a table slam. Everything was an effort for her. Fish & Chips were good but I'd NEVER eat there againApparently management doesn't monitor or care about quality of wait staff. It made an unpleasant experience.

This diner is just off the main drag and can cover everything from a small take out meal to a full sit down dinner.
We went in for breakfast on our way through the area and were served quickly and efficiently. We had bacon, eggs, home fries, and toast, the place was packed at 7 in the am and they handled the crowd great. Everyone there was in a good mood and the waitresses were just dancing to keep everybody filled with coffee and serve.

You know what you're getting when you go to any Dixie Lee but on the few occasions I've had a craving for fried chicken I've been shocked at how salty it is; even the fries are covered in a salty 'spice rub' - not recommended for anyone with high blood pressure! Having said all that, they do do a decent 'fry up' breakfast and they sell home made muffins which are very tasty.
