“Awesome place- Danny is an amazing chef. On one side more of a bar- the building to the left ( which you can walk to from inside ) is more formal dining. Take the fish you caught there and they will cook it up !”

Point of Interest
“If you're in town for one of the live shows at the Dixie you are guaranteed a one-of-a-kind experience. The local actors aren't necessarily top-notch but they give it their all and they do a great job. For us locals it's especially entertaining to see our local insurance agents, baristas, and other business professionals up there acting it all out. ”
