The culinary savants at Dixon's Public House craft a menu packed with traditional Irish favourites in addition to dozens of premium liquors and draft beers, all served amid woodwork and nautical-themed decor. Eaters can team up to tear through an appetizer of baby stuffed Yorkshire puddings ($13) or loudly announce their solo dining career with eats such as a slow-cooked, smoked beef-brisket sandwich ($14.50). Kitchen crews pour creamed corn over an Irish cottage boxty ($13)—potato pancakes stuffed with ground lamb—and then fry up fish 'n' chips ($13) using Guinness-based batter. Afternoon diners can also peruse a lunch menu with 10 items under $10, including an Alberta Prime rib dip sandwich ($9.99) served on a grilled garlic baguette. Between bites, patrons sip pints of Guinness Stout ($7.85) imported from Ireland or down firebrand whisky ($5.50) to warm up the furnace that powers their digestive system.

Each sporting a different maritime-inspired name, the eatery's dining spaces greet guests with MLB baseball on flat-screen TVs, stained-wood decor, and decorative ship wheels that control the wait staff's movements. Visitors can dine on the patio or pull cushy armchairs up to the portside section's stone fireplace. Dixon's also occasionally hosts trivia nights.

Calgary's Best Pubs

Calgary's Best Pubs is a group comprising of five Irish pubs: Limericks Traditional Public House, Seanachie Irish Pub, Kilkenny Irish Pub, Donegal Irish Pub, the soon to reopen Joyce on 4th Irish Pub, and Dixon's Public House, a maritime themed pub. Although each establishment has its own distinguishing characteristics—Limericks's crackling fireplaces, Kilkenny's chandeliers, and Seanachie's circa 1860 Irish Harp, for example—they more or less share the components you'd want in an old-timey Irish pub. Think lacquered wood; hearty pub food such as burgers, Irish boxty, fish and chips, and shepherd’s pie; and, of course, a plentiful supply of beer, whiskey, and hospitality.

Good casual pub. Food always consistent. Lots of sports screes. Music not too loud. Service good.
