I have visited Dixies a number of times over the years when visiting Glencairn and recall the food to be of a consistently high standard. I give 5/5 to the kitchen staff, who must work under great pressure and I believe are the behind the scenes stars of the show. I have found that if you are unfortunate enough to... More

visited Dixies Tuesday21st March, a public holiday,very few staff and most of who were there were new. Waited about 40 minutes to be given a menu, then during meal had to get up twice to find a waitress to get another glass of wine, it was really hot and busy so not a good experience. Food was good

Our friends who knew Dixies well enough to suggest we all go there for their super steaks were aghast. Our drinks orders were taken promptly, but it was a while before we were asked what we would like to eat, and the "I'll check" answer to the question of what the soup of the day was led to another long...

Dixies is very casual and nothing fancy inside but the food is really good. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The bar was very smokey so could last more than a few minutes in there. The pizzas are delicious and the beef fillet will also bring us back time after time.

Calamari steak was excellent and true value for money. Unfortunately the service was terrible and I waited far too long for bill and card machine.

Ate here a couple of times during a recent visit. The steak and cape malay curry were excellent. Well priced wine and beer together with fast and friendly service make this a place to revisit.

It is nice to sit there and convenient, as we could walk there. The food was good, and the staff very friendly.

One of the local favorites and also services tour buses. Indoor and outdoor dining at a relatively large restaurant for local area ones. Pizza and chicken were our choices and both were very good. Apparently known for their steaks and we plan on going back to check that out. Faces the bay which is an added plus.
