A trip to Titusville can include a visit to Kennedy Space Center, Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. You can enhance your trip if you dine at Dixie Crossroads.
This restaurant features fresh fish and shrimp from nearby Port Canaveral. They also have a wide variety of food that will satisfy thos of you who don't like seafood.
You can feed the fish and turtles in the outside ponds while you are waiting for your table. I have never had to wait very long.
The menu at Dixie Crossroads is so extensive that there is no room in this review to tell you everything.
To make things simpler, they have organized the menu into five main categories:
Some of these are cheese curds, fried calamari, shrimp cocktail, bacon wrapped shrimp, and a variety of oysters both grilled and steamed. Since it's a Florida restaurant, they also have gator bites.
2. Soups and Salads
You can ask for the soup of the day, and they also have clam chowder, house salad, and Caesar salad. You can also add shrimp or chicken to any salad.
3. Sandwiches and Baskets
Try a hamburger or a Philly cheesesteak, fish tacos, chicken tenders, mahi mahi, mullet, Shrimp Po'Boy and even a veggie burger.
Baskets include fried clam strips, fried fish, rock shrimp, oysters, gator bites, chicken tenders, chicken brast, and crab cakes.
Here is where they really shine. There are so many things to choose from I'll just mention a few: Maine Lobsters, Rock Shrimp, Scallops, Crab Legs, Mahi Mahi, and mullet. You can combine any number of these in large platters they call Dixie Spectacular and Cape Canaveral Special. You can have seafood steamed, broiled, fried, grilled, or blackened.
They have many offerings for the landlubber such as Surf N Turf & Chicken that can feature New York Strip Steak, Prime Rib, Sirloin, Chicken Breast, and lobster.
They have a full service bar with several local craft beers, and an air conditioned bar in a gazebo structure.
The dessert menu is extensive and includes Key Lime Pie.
Dixie Crossroads is open every day of the week from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM except Friday and Saturday when it stays open until 10:00 PM.
