I had the special, which was Catfish with red beans and rice. The fish was so soft and cooked perfectly. The red beans and rice were amazing as well. I will go back for sure!

The bar is nice, great happy hour, cool ambiance. We like the food but we like the music even better. One of the great spots on Grand Avenue that we keep coming back to! :)

We have been to Dixie's on several other occasions and enjoyed it each time. This evening we were escorted to our table by the manager on duty. After we were seated he offered to take our jackets and hung them up for us. Sarah, our server was friendly and attentive. Sadly, just prior to ordering, a gentleman at the table... More

All of our dishes were great, and the southern tastes were given an enthusiastic thumbs up from my wife, who is from New Orleans. She did say her grits were better than the grits served here. Our server was very competent and helpful. Our biggest disappointment was that the last piece of key lime pie sold before my daughter ordered.... More

We stopped at Dixie's before heading down to a concert at the Ordway and sat in the bar area-very nice atmosphere. Our server was prompt and attentive but not overly so. My friend ordered the gumbo and I had the catfish mini tacos. We were both impressed with our food and its timely arrival. The drink list was extensive and... More

In all fairness they have Minnetoaized the southern menu..it was good but needed more character....I had Gumbo and it took a lot of Tabasco sauce to perk it up. my sister had a pulled pork sandwich...

Met another couple at Dixie's as a theme get together (catch up what each of did and saw during recent visits to New Orleans). Also, this was a our first time back to Dixie's in a number of years and found that they've made the place more up-scale which is ok but some of the old charm was lost. There... More

Have not been here for some time. Still a nice place. Fried green tomatoes, yummy. Gumbo, which was good, but different as I expected some seafood, but all meat and sausage no seafood, vegetables in a buttery roux sauce.

We ate here for brunch, 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 5. The selection was good and most of the food delicious. A general consensous was that the eggs were too mushy, but everyone loved the chicken, breakfast potatoes and the biscuts and gravy. The $24.95 price tag may seem a bit high, but we felt for...
