Moxie's Grill & Bar - Dixon Road
Moxie’s Dixon Road is located in the Sandman Signature Hotel – minutes away from Toronto Pearson Airport and just up the road from Royal Woodbine Golf Club. Our Executive Chef Brandon Thordarson has created a menu offering a wide-array of steaks, burgers, pastas and seafood! No matter the occasion, whether it's a business luncheon, a dinner date, or late night drinks with friends, Moxie's offers something for everyone.
Moxie’s features daily drink specials and a relaxing patio. We offer a delectable blend of unique cocktails, flavourful wines and a variety of beers to choose from. Next time you’re in the neighbourhood, be sure to pop in!
We have been to this Moxie's location a couple of years ago thinking we liked it enough to go back to meet up with friends.
On this visit it started out well although a bit rushed by the server to order mains when we hadn't
even receivedd our drinks. He was very attentive and explained process when hearing that my wife had an allergy to mushrooms. The main course 3 plates were delivered by someone else and they missed my wife's plate entirely ( she thought we were sharing).. After waiting another 5 minutes our server brought out the fourth plate. In another 3 or 4 minutes he came back with a 5th plate saying he delivered the wrong one to my wife. This was ok however we wondered how much attention was really paid to the Allergy issue when you bring the wrong plate (similar pasta) to the customer with an allergy issue.
The over all food quality was average and better could be had at restaurants with lower prices.
This was a disappointment compared to our experience approx 2 years previous.
Thank you for setting up the table with gluten free menus. There were plenty of options for us to eat. At other restaurants, it is a nightmare trying to find something to eat since they put wheat flour in most of their sauces.
Since the Kingston ON Moxie closed we have not visited a Moxie's until recent visit. We chose this Moxie's because it was in close proximity to our hotel. When we visit TO next time we will be booking a hotel in proximity to Moxie's.
Everything about our experience was great but the service was Amazing. Our server was Oswald who we later learned was a new employee. Oswald was friendly, knowledgeable of the drinks and food menu, courteous and checked back on our table frequently.
The shift manager( sorry cannot recall his name) came by to check on how our visit was going. We gladly reported on the great service we were receiving. We noticed that the manager gave a report of our compliment to Oswald right away. My husband and I are retired managers and we know how important it is to compliment staff promptly.
Once again we had a great experience at Moxie's
Hello Cyclecat, Thank you for choosing Moxie's Dixon road for your airport destination. It always makes us very happy when we leave our guest with an experience to remember. Oswald has been with us for a very short period of time and has created great bonds with new guests ever since. We will make sure he receives this feedback. See you next time you're in the city! Dixon Road Management Team.
Service was subpar; the waiter did not come back at all to ask us if we needed anything else after our food was served. Also had to ask for water since it wasn’t offered. Didn’t seem to be attentive at all.
Hello, We would like to say we are very sorry for the subpar experience. You deserve to have an amazing time that I know we can provide. Because of that, if it's okay I would love for you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to further discuss the matter.
Great food great service happy staff makes happy customers!
Hello there, Your feedback is always appreciated at Moxie's Dixon. We also believe that happy staff makes happy guests, that is why we aim to be the employer of choice, glad you had an amazing experience. Dixon Road Management Team.
It would be good to check for any allergy-prone items on the 'gluten free' menu. A colleague had a very bad reaction after ordering from it when we ate there this week.
Hello Robert, I would like to apologize on our behalf for what happened to your colleague. Our menu is "gluten conscious" and therefore some of our items require to be tweaked. We would love for you and your colleague to give us an opportunity to redeem ourselves since we do take pride in our allergy procedure. Aside from the food portion everything else was a 5/5 and we'd like to step it up a notch and really give you that perfect experience! Cheers, Dixon Road Management Team.
We had 2 guests in our party with food allergies and they treated this with the best of attention. Both the server and manager were attentive to our needs and recommended excellent choices from the menu to avoid issues. Nice surprise that bottles of wine were half price!
Hello Dineout, Thank you so much for such a great review. We take pride in our allergy awareness and this is why Moxie's Dixon Road is trusted by many with mild/severe allergies. Don't forget we have half price wine EVERY Sunday so hopefully we'll see you soon! Dixon Road Management Team
We had a nice location for the meeting and the table was ready upon my arrival.
The reason for my reduced star rating was that the volume of the music on the heated patio was so loud we had to have it turned down to be able to hear each other.
Otherwise Moxie's was and remains a location I would highly recommend
Hello Jacquie, I would like to thank you on behalf of Moxie's Dixon Bar and Grill. We always appreciate the feedback. We will make sure that moving forward we are more attentive in the atmosphere and volume level for better a experience. Cheers! Dixon Road Management Team.
decent place, wins on brand equity, service and food enough to get by, best of not so strong options in airport area.
Great place for early hours meal with clients
Came here for breakfast and ordered the eggs Benedict, they were cooked to perfection! Service was phenomenal as well. Would highly recommend Moxie’s Dixon Road if you are close to the Toronto Airport area!
Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the eggs Benedict, and that you were well taken care of by our team! If you loved the eggs Benedict, you may really love our Sicilian Sausage Hash, I'd highly recommend it for your next visit! We hope welcome you back for breakfast again sometime soon! Sincerely, Dixon Road Management Team
Everything was wonderful and our server was fantastic. I hate to complain because our server was very very nice (and I doubt what happened was her fault), but on the booking for this lunch on OpenTable, I had specifically written that it was my friend’s birthday and I would like a flourless chocolate cake and gelato for dessert with a candle to surprise her. I was really disappointed when these items were never even brought out or mentioned at the end of our meal and we just got our checks. It was too late for me to surprise her at that point and so it kind of ruined my birthday lunch plan in that way. Other than that, the patio is really nice for summer time and they even have an enclosed patio that makes it feel like summer and protects you from the sun!
Good Evening Mona, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so glad that you and you friend enjoyed your meal, as well as our newly renovated patio! I am so sorry to hear that we missed the mark on your request, and weren't able to give your friend that birthday surprise that you were looking for. I will be personally looking into this further, and will also be in contact with you, as I would appreciate the chance to re-earn your loyalty. Sincerely, Dixon Road Management
Typical moxie quality and service. The patio was open so that was a bonus.
Good Evening Flo, Thank you so much for taking the time for leaving such an incredible rating! We are so glad that you were able to stop in while you were in the Toronto Airport area, and that you had the chance to enjoy our newly renovated patio! We look forward to having you join us again soon! Thanks again, Dixon Road Management Team
Slow service, forgot to put in an order, returned the drinks they made
The service was amazing and our server (John I think is his name) was very attentive throughout our meal. He was also very knowledgeable about the menu. My biggest problem was the food itself. My fish tacos tasted terrible... The fish was watery tasting and bland and the cabbage/veggie slaw tasted old. It tasted so blah that I had it sent back. The calamari was good as an appetizer but it was a very small portion. They make it sound so plentiful on the menu but it comes out pretty small. The better appetizer is the chips and dip. The pasta was decent too. All in all, the food didn't live up to what it was promising. Joey's has a similar menu and price point and tastes ten times better. I would much rather recommend that restaurant over Moxie's.
Hello May2Day, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We always try to deliver great customer service so we are thrilled to get such great feedback! I will definitely make sure to pass the positive feedback on to John, as well as pass along the feedback to the culinary team. Hopefully we are able to truly impress you with our food on your next stay with us! Thanks again, Dixon Road Management Team
Got seated down at the table and had to wait 30 mins for someone to come to me! That’s with me asking the hostess to get someone to come
To my table

Jackie is a fantastic individual to have on our team and we are lucky to have her. We hope to get the chance to welcome you back again when you're in the Toronto Airport area. Sincerely, Dixon Road Management team
Im a fan of the Moxies chain but theis is a location I won't be returning to. I'm sure the fact that it was a busy Friday evening had something to do with it, but still, it didnt even come close to what i expect or have received in the past at other locations. My steak was over cooked, the vegetables were undercooked, the waiter offered us fresh ground pepper 3/4 of the way through the meal, and they walked by us several times with empty glasses and never once asked if we wanted refills. Staff was very nice and pleasant, but the lack of attentiveness paired with the food is enough to ensure I will travel farther to one of the other Moxies locations.
Good Evening Holly, We appreciate you taking the time to review our location. Clearly we didn’t deliver an experience you loved, and I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. Would you please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org? Kind Regards, Management
This place was truly amazing. The ambiance was great and the location was amazing. We sat in the lounge and I loved it. I felt so catered to and I appreciated where we sat. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was tasty as well. Would definitely go back to this location again.
Hello Rochelle, I saw that you gave us an excellent 5-star review and I wanted to extend a sincere thank you. We always try to deliver great customer service so we were elated to get the feedback, I will definitely make sure to pass this along to the team! We hope to welcome you back very soon! Thanks again, Dixon Road Management Team
Our server was wonderful! Very attentive and a great representation of your brand. We would come back for him, for sure.
One of the guests had the lettuce wraps as their meal. Was shocked at the small amount of chicken included considering they paid an additional $6 to have it included.
Good Evening, Thanks for the review and your feedback. We hope to see you again to really impress you with our Menu and Service! Kind Regards, Dixon Road Management Team
Business luncheon was absolutely perfect and the deal was closed, so happy!

Good Evening Lindal, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We appreciate truly your feedback, and look forward to having you join us again. Kind regards, Dixon Road Management Team
A decent place to have lunch and bring guests in the airport area

No mention of our special occasion, food was horrible, we ordered the fish tacos, they had the tiniest bit of fish the size of a dime in the fish taco, with one super tiny sliver of avocado, I guess it was a garnish...literally the taco was stuffed completely with coleslaw... really, if I wanted a salad I would of ordered one! So not worth the money, guess the kitchen staff is to lazy to make it right!
Mixed reviews should be taken seriously. Although we were seated promptly with our reservation, we waited an hour and a half for our food. The server and manager were both apologetic and offered free drinks and soup or salad appetizers to compensate for the wait. When our mains finally arrived, they were mediocre at best. We appreciated the effort of the server and manager to make amends, but we would not recommend this location. Perhaps on a weeknight their service and food quality might be better, but we wouldn’t take that risk.
I waited almost 15 minutes for a server to even approach the table and say hello. Almost ready to walk out.
As I had ample time to read the menu and make a choice, I didn’t have to wait an unreasonably lengthy time for my food, which was tasty enough but not outstanding. I had barely taken a bite when the server miraculously reappeared to ask me how everything was.
Portions were not large, which was OK, perhaps the cost could be less.
Overall, poor experience. Little to no chance of returning.
Great Service. Food was also good. Background music was at a satisfactory level.
Reserving our table through Open Table was super easy. We met by very friendly and helpful people at the main desk, seated promptly and our waitress arrived quickly. She was most helpful and pleasant. Did not have to wait long for the food and it was delicious. A most enjoyable experience.
Great food, nice atmosphere, decor and layout.
I wish our server would have been more attentive, than just taking my date's and I order and bringing out our meals.
I ordered pasta, dish was great, but our server did not ask us if we wanted cheese or ground pepper. I had to ask for it. Typically at other Moxie's locations and similar restaurants, the server would ask or bring out cheese/ground pepper.
Limited service. Took for ever to receive basics like salt and pepper and anything incremental like wine
Can accommodate a peanut allergy. Service outstanding. Food delicious but some portions are small if you have a big appetite.
The food was great, I just wish the servers are a little more welcoming.
Great night. Staff where excellent. Food allergies were taken seriously And I was well advised. Overall a very good experience
We always have a fantastic experience at this location. Can't wait to go again!
Had a great date night before an early morning flight. Table was and food were great. Service from Taylor was fantastic. She made sure the timing of drinks and food was perfect and was super nice and attentive along the way.
It Was very good service. Had the fish tacos all the food was excellent.
