Dixies is such a fun place to go for a good southern meal - here in Minnesota! For a fun and unique outing, it always is a great option. My daughter and I chose to give the Easter brunch a try this year. $29/per person for the buffet, which included (among many more items) ham, crab bisque, jambalaya, blackened catfish,... More

I went for the mardi gras celebration thingy they were doing... at first couldn't find my reservation and panic set in (you definitely needed on this night), then the host located it finally. Was seated and waited on the waiter, which took him a bit to come by but his defense, it was totally swamped, so busy so I understood.... More

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

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
