Don't go here if you want to have a conversation with someone you're having dinner with. The night I was there the music was so loud it was thumping the walls, and the jerks at t...

Awesome Birthday! 7/1/2009

I celebrated my birthday here in the beginning of June and I could not have been more pleased. The staff was VERY accomodating from setting up an open bar for my party, to getting me and my friends a beer pong table. The bartenders were also great and served us our drinks pretty quick. I would absolutely recommend having a party here or even just going here on the weekend/during the week, if you're looking for a fun and chill place. Pros: Outstanding service more

Great Local Bar! 7/1/2009

This is a great local bar to meet up with friends, play some beer pong and just have a good time! The staff there is great and makes everyone feel welcome! Pros: Great Food and Staff! more

Boots optional (Tennis shoes are fine) 6/25/2009

Texas flair in Mid Town. Plenty of screens to view your favorite game over a pitcher of carbonated adult beverage. Grab a sampler platter and feed your machine. A state of the art juke box with a wide selection too. A young and boisterous crowd competing at Beer Pong is fun to watch. Find a partner because you're next! Pros: Friendly service, good Bar food. Cons: Nowhere to hang your coat (who cares) more

Great place for relaxing happy hour 6/18/2009

I went to a happy hour here last Friday and everything about the place was great! The staff was very friendly, there were great drink specials and the food was SO good. It's a very easygoing bar, perfect if you're just looking to relax. Some people behind us were playing beer pong, but I think on other nights they have other games/events. Pros: Great food, nice staff, great happy hour specials more

GREAT FUNDRAISER!!!! 6/16/2009

I recently held a fund raiser at Whistlin' Dixies and I was overly pleased with how everything went. First of all, they gave all of the guests a 3 hour open bar for $40 per person. Of that $40, the bar donated back $20 per person for everyone that came. All I had to do was get people through the door, and I was able to raise a ton of money for a good cause. Everyone loved the place, they had beer pong set up and made sure all of the guests always had a drink in hand. It also helped that bartenders really knew what they were doing, and most importantly, actually had a great time with everyone there. This was a great experience, and I will definitely look to do it again soon. It may be a little bit off of the beaten path, but it is definitely worth the trip. Pros: Great Service, Great Special more

the place to unwind 6/15/2009

Came here on a Friday with friends to cap off the week with a few beers. Bartender was super nice and gave us our drinks quickly. Staff was friendly and attentive, always making sure we had enough drinks. Loved the atmosphere, relaxed and unpretentious with a young, casual crowd. The guys had a blast playing beer pong. We'll def be coming back. Pros: fun, good crowd, friendly staff Cons: music can be loud at times more

great place for great times 6/15/2009

My friends and I were there for happy hour and it was awesome! The bartenders were always filling our drinks up and for us. The jukebox has some of the best music in town on it. The beer pong is great and there's always willing competitors. Pros: friendly staff, cheap drinks, good music Cons: 11th ave(really not that far away though more

Nice Change from the Usual 6/5/2009

I hosted a happy hour here for my friend's birthday. It was a lot of fun, and the perfect venue to draw together a crowd of friends and acquaintances! The atmosphere is completely laid-back, and the bar was actually really full (which I wasn't expecting, given the location). We were able to get a booth in the back room and had plenty of space to game of beer pong going. The bartenders were nice, overall, and helped us out with pitchers for the game. Good fun, cheap beer, good specials! Pros: Friendly, comfortable atmosphere Cons: Difficult location to reach more

Great Place for Happy Hour w co workers and friends. 5/14/2009

Very Nice to Non-Profits 5/13/2009

Whitslin Dixies was a great place to reach out to for non-profit fundraising; I signed up for a free happy hour there through a friend and they sent my organization free gift certificates! They are really kind and generous in helping non-profits more

Bad Place 5/10/2009

While one server was nice to us when we decided to leave, the rest simply appalled us in how they ignored my friend and me. We went there early Saturday evening to check out this dive type of bar since we frequent and are welcomed by others in NYC--past and present. There were a few people at the bar so it was not at all busy. My friend and I sat down at the bar first looking, then taking out money, and even signaling politely all to no avail to the bartenders who were not in the least occupied. I said, ""Excuse me"" twice to the bartender passing by who STILL blew by us, and it was not until I leaned over the bar and yelled to get her attention that she actually took our order. My friend who is a minority living and working in finance in NYC for half his life sensed they were discriminating against him because of his ethnicity which he never feels. I truly do not know if this were the reason but I was astounded at such rude paltry service and would hate to think for even one moment that such prejudicial behavior could exist here in NYC and in a place with such favorable reviews. With other dives in Manhattan like Coyote Ugly which welcome and respect their patrons, I see no reason to go to a place which hires such horrific and offensive staff. Pros: Divey Atmosphere Cons: Service more

Awesome Watering Hole 5/6/2009

Recently had a happy hour at Dixie's and my peeps and I had a blast. The staff were attentive, helpful and fun, making my group of shrinking violets feel right at home. Solid selection of tunes, coupled with sports on the TV's made even the most hard core BNT crowd feel at home. Beer Pong available at Dixies, which always fires up the competitive juices between the college crowd and the Hell's Kitchen locals. I'll definitely be back at Dixie's soon, as the unpretentious atmosphere, coupled with the understated surroundings, make it perfect for a night out with the guys or girls or both. Pros: Excellent Staff, Pong & Solid Drink Specials Cons: Location, although being out of the way has its Perks! more
