Great food and staff. Simple decor. Terrific atmosphere, wide menu choices. Coleslaw was best Ive had, superb for the generous portion of ribs. Desert was a home made meringue with berrys and icecream. Irish coffee was ok! Wine choice was brilliant. Going back.

Hi and thanks for the five star review even though your Irish coffee was just ok. I must admit we are not great on anything a little different from the main stream and your review has made us realise that we do need to do some more training with some areas of our service that has now been organised.

Great place to have a hearty pub lunch. Their hickory smoked pulled pork and beef ribs were delicious as was the calamari. Service was very friendly and food came out promptly even though they were busy. Will definitely come again.

This was our first visit here and we were very happy we decided to go to Dixon's Creek Cafe Bar and Grill. The staff are so friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome to their restaurant.

Hi and thank you for such a lovely and detailed review. We do try to offer many different meals as our regulars love to have a wide choice rather than just a few entrees and mains. The most important thing is that enjoyed you meals and time with us which is fantastic. We really do appreciate your five star review.... More

The decor is old fashioned and simply, nothing exciting but the food is good and at reasonable prices. The only thing that we ordered that we didn't like was the calamari entree as it was so oily. Everything else was nice, The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Overall a good experience and worth a visit.

Hi and thank you for the review. I have spoken to our kitchen staff about you calamari entree which is normally very popular and crisp - we can only apologise. Calamari needs to be served very quickly after being cooked and were all not sure what happen here but will work on ensuring entrees are served as fast as possible.... More

We had the slow cooked ribs and pork belly. The best we have ever tasted. The cafe is basic but the service is very good and the girls very friendly. A basic place to eat but very clean and has a good selection of beers on tap plus a good range of other drinks including wines.

Wednesday night is steak night, and the place was full of locals who clearly know a good deal. This is a no frills type of place offering good value for money, so don't go if you are looking for high end service. If you are looking for a good steak though, this should do nicely.

There were about 40 people from Bentleigh East Community Centre visited and it was a great experience in a county like restaurant. Staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you considering the volume of people being looked after. We received a great main meal, desert and even a premium hot drink of choice.
