Dixie - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
I was extremely disappointed to find the restaurant had closed 5 days prior to my reservation, and yet Open Table still sent me a confirmation 2 days after the closing. I'd made the plan to surprise my husband and there we were standing in front of an empty restaurant. I would expect notice of closing in this circumstance.
Second visit to Dixie, very disappointed. Our first visit was excellent. On our second visit the service was spotty, dishes just "plopped" on the table, the food was too salty, and our drinks were very light. Not going again - sorry to see the decline at Dixie
The space is beautiful and servers friendly but Dixie misses the mark in a couple of areas. The menu was limited, which is fine, but for shared plates the portions were too small. We understand what tapas are, however they were barely enough to share. Either the portion should be just for one person or bump up the sizes to allow them to be shared easier. Flavor profiles were interesting, but not memorable. The (one, we didn't realize it would only be one for a shared small plate) biscuit was the best we've ever had. The place is beautiful but the bathrooms seemed to have mechanical issues. Service was attentive and friendly.
I LOVED Dixie! First impressions matter and Dixie did not disappoint . The rocking chairs out front are a cute touch! It gives the perfect feel of southern charm in the city. You walk around to the side to enter the restaurant. The staff was so warm and friendly. We were greeted by every server we passed--very impressive. We dined upstairs, so we were able to see the restaurant in it's entirety. The decor is beautiful and trendy! We started with drinks. I would recommend the Hurricane and the James River--both delicious! For dinner, we had the "Table Burger" with fries (unbelievably good), hush puppies, deviled eggs and the pork shoulder. The portions are perfect since they're shareable. I'm definitely going back!
The entry down the side is a little odd but immediately forgotten once you step inside. It is very comfortable and inviting. The AC was blasting making it uncomfortable but when people went out front a blast of warm air came in from the door which helped. Bring a sweater if you go in the summer. The waitress was very attentive, almost too attentive. She never let anyone's drink go empty. The glass pot appetizers were very good. The bacon oil on the hummus gave it a while new life. The ceasar salad was delicious but small to share, order 2. The cocktails were excellent spins in old standbys.
We went to Dixie for the first time on a Saturday night. We had reservations and were seated upstairs. We went at 6:30 and it was not crowded when we arrived so the noise level was not an issue. As it got more crowded I could see how it could get pretty noisy. When we were leaving the downstairs was filled and seemed lively but a little too loud for our taste. Our server was terrific and the food delicious. The biscuits are outstanding. One biscuit is plenty to spit. The Caesar salad is delicious and different. Again one order is plenty for 2 people. I wish they had shrimp and grits on the dinner menu but as of now it is only on the brunch menu. The pork shoulder and grits was delicious. I found the shrimp with barbeque sauce to be too spicy, but others may not. It is a really lovely restaurant.
Great food and ambiance. We went here for Father's Day brunch and were pleased with the value and quantity we received. It was definitely on the pricier end of brunch places, but street parking was plentiful so easy to get in and out. I was however totally surprised by how many individual brought small children to dine in the restaurant (nearly every table had a child 3 or under in the room with us). I don't think they offer a children's menu but my only complaint was the noise level from all the children yelling/crying in the space, there's nothing to absorb the sound so it can get a bit noisy if you're dining with anyone hard of hearing. I'd be interested in coming back to try dinner.
The design of Dixie is what attracted me to the restaurant initially, and was what I enjoyed most during my meal here. Service was good--our waiter was a bit slow but the busboy's were very prompt to clean up which is always nice. The food was surprising, and not in a good way. Not sure if Dixie can call themselves a "Southern" restaurant just because the dishes happen to have commonly Southern ingredients in them (shrimp, catfish, etc.). The country ham dish was extremely salty, deviled crab was good but basic, georgia shrimp was great, and the middlins dish was boring with a lack of texture, and again, salty. My expectations were high for Dixie, but felt quite let down by the overpriced and frankly confusing food.
Some of the most creative delicious food I've had. The buttermilk biscuits with honey butter are crispy on the bottom yet moist and flaky inside. Their twist on a Cesar salad includes Tasso and crawfish and their pork shoulder with sopping bread is fork tender. If you're in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, don't miss eating at Dixie.
I've walked past Dixie so many times, it's such a beautiful house and space, it's even nicer inside. I had the burger for brunch and my friend got a quiche with asparagus. I would recommend the spot for a quick bite to eat, pimento cheese (it's on so many menu items) or a drink but I wouldn't expect anything mind blowing delicious here. This is definitely one of those spots that is more a location find than a food find.
I had a GiltCity to Dixie and invited my friend. We started with an amazing biscuit and yummy peel-n-eat shrimp. Those were the highlights. The table burger was very good, but not amazing, and the scallops were a bit rubbery. Our least favorite dish was the pork shoulder which was much too fatty and the pomegranate arils adorning the plate were a total miss. I would say the service was a bit odd. The server completely forgot we had ordered pork shoulder as main entree and put our dessert menus down. Huh? After we alerted him to the error, it took 20-25 minutes to get our entree. The water refills came regularly but the server was constantly interrupting us to remove plates, silverware, etc. unecessarily. The place is super cute and the decor is very chic. I would probably go back just for a biscuit but was not wowed by some of the other dishes.
Our server Ashley was so amazing, informative and friendly. She made us feel so comfortable and offered great suggestions. The cocktails as well as the food was delicious. Highly recommend the table burger - one of the best burgers in the city! The country ham, and the Georgia shrimp. We also had two desserts that were out of this world. Definitely will be going back and recommending to others!
