Dixie Grill & Bar is located directly on Dixie Highway, which is a busy street connecting West Palm Beach to towns to the south. The restaurant is located in a revitalized urban neighborhood featuring boutiques and antique stores. I found street parking directly on Dixie Highway, although the restaurant has about 5-6 parking spots located on the side street next to the entrance. I entered the restaurant and was seated right away in a cozy booth. I had the option of sitting inside or outside and chose inside because of the funky decor and intimate setting. There were several couples seated at the bar and most of the booths in the small restaurant were taken on a Thursday night around 6:00 pm. The restaurant is uniquely decorated on the inside. Guitars, tin lunchboxes, and old signs hang from every square inch of the ceiling. There are kitschy Florida-centric pieces of artwork and signs on all of the walls of the restaurant and even in the bathrooms. It creates a super funky vibe that is fun and also cozy at the same time.

A server promptly handed me both food and beer menus. The draft beer menu is fairly extensive and features both house-brewed beers and hard-to-find beers from other breweries. Local Florida beers are highlighted with a Florida symbol and make up a large part of the beer menu. They even have a small section devoted to rare bombers and small bottles you can buy to-go. I ordered a Bell's Octoberfest and it was served to me quickly. I next ordered the Beer Cheese Dip as a starter and it was delicious. You could really taste the hoppy-ness of the beer they used to make the dip. It really is perfect pub food. The service was friendly and flawless throughout the course of my meal. All ordered items were brought out quickly and correctly. I ordered the Dixie Pub Fried Chicken sandwich for my entree with a house salad as a side. Again, the food was delicious. The only misstep food-wise was the dessert. I ordered the Chocolate Stout Cake and while the cake itself was moist and delicious, the marshmallow and caramel toppings made the cake a little too sweet, and the bacon on top was too chewy with the pretzel pieces being a little soft/stale. The price for the food was extremely reasonable and the portion sizes were large. I was definitely full by the end of the evening and enjoyed my meal at Dixie Grill & Bar. I would highly recommend Dixie Grill & Bar to friends and couples who want to eat delicious comfort food in a funky pub setting.

As always, parking is very limited, but the restaurant is small. The moment you walk in you can feel the neighborhood diner feel. All the antiques and memorabilia on the wall really stand out. I asked our waitress to recommend some of the craft beers on tap and she had suggestions, but it was easier to read about them. Our beer cheese with soft pretzel bites appetizer was amazing. Our whole table couldn’t get enough of those. We all had a different burger and they were huge and cooked perfectly. I recommend all burger lovers to come to Dixies Grill and Bar and give them a shot. This place is a few minutes from my work, and we love it. It is a neighborhood treasure— I can’t get enough of the burgers and beer cheese!

Parking lot was a little small but we beat the dinner rush, so we found parking right away. We were seated right away and chose to go outside since we had 7 people and they could not accommodate us that well inside. The beer selection was good including some items such as coffee-infused, etc. The food was bar/brewery type food, but it was not frozen so better than average. I was a little disappointed in my pork sliders but that was partially due to my own expectation that it would be smoked or barbequed. But my dining guests liked theirs. The chicken breast was moist. My favorite part was the beer and dessert. The chocolate stout cake was different, moist with pretzel bits on top for crunch.
