This has to be one of my top 5 restaurants. Absolutely the best seafood you will find anywhere. I live 650 miles away but make it a point to schedule my trips around their serving hours. Fortunately, I get to stop by a few times a year. Service is always good and the food is always great. Very consistent. My favorite meal is the rock shrimp.

Our family has been here many times. The seafood is the freshest. The rock shrimp are like mini lobsters. Love the corn fritters you get as you sit down. They are evil- because they are filling and you could make a meal of those. Finish it off with key lime pie. Delicious!!! May seem pricey to some but the quality is worth every penny. Oh and the women's room is a hoot. Must see!

I am always impressed to eat at an established restaurant that exceeds expectations. The menu here is pretty straightforward- they don't embrace the dated Florida cuisine that deals with tropical fruit and other embellishments in seafood. The dining rooms are separated by a wall with etched glass. Noise level was pleasant. Despite the volume the staff is very capable of visiting your table often...The maxim of using fresh ingredients and treating them minimally with respect to seasoning and other ingredients was utilized in the preparation of these entrees. My grouper was broiled and came out very moist and ivory white. The shrimp were surprisingly excellent. The tail of a royal red is a little different looking, kind of slender. But what sweetness of flavor. I was very appreciative of the care taken by the kitchen in the preparation of both of these items. Not a degree of over cooking. The ingredients spoke for themselves.

Everything about Dixie Crossroads is my favorite. The huge crowds are seated and waited on

Coconut shrimp. Get it. The dipping sauce is amazing and it's moderately priced. Some will rave about the rock shrimp, which are also great, but I swear by the coconut shrimp. Also, the corn fritters... It's not a true experience unless you eat like 20 and feel bad about it.

I love Dixie Crossroads and it never fails to deliver some of the best seafood in the area. They are known for their rock shrimp (always get the broiled) and specialty items. This time of the year the red shrimp are in and they are really good with a sweeter taste and different texture. The service is always top notch and everyone is friendly and willing to give a recommendation or 2. Only word of warning is that there is no way to eat the house specialty of corn fritters without getting powdered sugar on you.

Extra-large restaurants usually lack in or quality. Not this one! Waitress, though very busy, took time to explain menu and was helpful and kept checking with us to see all was good. Well, the food wasn't good, it was great. All in our party joined the clean plate club! Broiled rock shrimp did taste like lobster and was served with melted butter. Vegetables with a hint of garlic were deliciously crisp. Sweet potato was great with the cinnamon spread on it. Fried oysters and fried rock shrimp were plentiful and tasty. And all this was enjoyed with the powdered sugar fritters that were yummy and often replenished.

We have eaten here 4 or 5 times...we drive all the way from Tampa just to enjoy it. This is the only place I know of that sells rock shrimp, which was what made them famous. Seems that the ads from the last few years push other items but the rock shrimp are the reason to go. Sont let someone who has never really eaten a rock shrimp tell you that they are just like regular shrimp...they taste sort of a cross between normal shrimp and lobster to me. I can easily eat a dozen and half. Their sides are good...the slaw, the addictive little corn fritters, the krabby bites with their own habanero hot sauce...yum! We usually bring friends and they have tried the regular shrimp, lobster and soup and liked it all. the restaurant is clean and the service has always been great, even the time we took our large dog and opted to get the food to go so we could picnic in a nearby park.

The large helping of sugar-dusted corn fritters and free crab bites (courtesy of a flyer we found locally) were a nice beginning to our meal.

Subsequently, we have learned that these shrimp are a relative rarity and available only in certain locations nationwide. We only wished we had 2 orders of those versus our order of rock shrimp which were pint-sized and tough compared to those we can get here on the West Coast of FL. So zero in on those royal reads and you won't be sorry with this unique and tasty treat!

We used to drive over with my grandparents from Orlando when I was little and we still eat here today! The original and best place for rock shrimp in Florida. Prices have gone up over the years but portions and food quality has remained the same.

UK says "Delicious"!
I love this restaurant. It is very relaxed and quirky in it's own fishy way!
We have visited the area a number of times and always returned to this restaurant after our day on the water. The staff were very happy to move us to a warmer table, and were happy to cater for our individual requests to change our sides etc.
All tables are offered corn fritters which are totally delicious! and I ate the catfish for my entre and it was really nice!
We were also offered free fish food to feed the fish on our way home.

"Great food and friendly service!"
We just moved to Titusville and been to Dixie Crossroads about 5 times already. It is THE place to go here for seafood. Prices are very reasonable, the waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly and the food really tastes great. It's a classic local seafood spot...

"From Glenndale, CA"
Can I order to-go and have them mail it to LA? �Ohhh, DC, you will be missed, and are already missed, by our rumbling tummies. �The deals & specials you have, the super-friendly service, the cute decor & vibe of the whole place (not to mention the very hungry turtles & fishies outside) are all to die for.

"Corn Fritters and Seafood!"
We have visited Dixie Crossroads several times while in Florida on vacation. This restaurant is one of the best we have found for a down home type of atmosphere, and good food! The place is not fancy, but clean, and the food is excellent!�

"Great Food! Friendly Staff!"
"The food at Dixie has consistently been great every time we visit and I try to go there at least once, each trip to Titusville. I love the free fish food and the swarms of turtles and fish outside. The food inside is fantastic. On our most recent trip, we enjoyed whole lobster dinners for 12.99 and they were excellent, split down the middle and easy to eat. The staff is always friendly and the service is fast. "

"Best Selection Of Shrimp I've Ever Seen."
"What a fun place and the food is delicious. Most impressed with the amazing shrimp selection. I really didn't know there were so many different kinds. The special on the menu, the night we were there, was royal red shrimp. We learned that this is a highly sought after deep water shrimp caught off the Atlantic coast of Florida. Because of the depth they are caught in ( about 2400 hundred feet) the meat is pearl white and very tender. I have to tell you, it was the best shrimp I've ever had the pleasure of eating. The vegetables were fresh and not overcooked. We also had a small portion of grilled triple tale fish and oysters on the half-shell.... all very good. We were part of a large group that would normally slow down the service. Not here! The staff was great and quick to take care of the gangs request."

"Me and my sister were driving north on I-95 and I got hungry!!"
"Called in an order of fresh fried oysters and rock shrimp, fritters and cheese grits and sweet tea. I was stuffed but it was worth the stop. About 10 minutes east of I-95. Easy access to get in and out if you order takeaway. Place was packed."

"Yummy! I love the decor of this place. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend it!!! My husband's parents bragged about this place to me. They had every right to. Because the place was so popular and good there was a wait, but it was worth it."

"Big order of Corn Fritters served when seated."
"Attentive waiter. Big order of Corn Fritters served when seated. Yummy fritters. I had Coconut shrimp. Lightly fried, cooked perfectly and served with a very light , refreshing pineapple dipping sauce. Cheese grits and Steamed zucchini strips as sides. Some sides of zucchini at some eating establishments are "creative" piles of mush. At Dixie Crossroads they are pretty straightforward steamed and crunchy and I like them that way. My experience with the corn fritters was the same as Chris A.'s. I also kept saying to friend, "last one" and also kept reaching for more. LOL "

"Worth a stop."
"The corn fritters to start (they are free) were fantastic. I kept saying "last one" and then noticed my hand was reaching back for more on its own. The Rock Shrimp are the other thing to try, although all the seafood is pretty good. I actually enjoyed the meal so much that I tried to replicate it at a couple of places in Cocoa Beach (where our hotel was) but none of the other places were nearly as good. Worth a stop. "
