Dixie Crossroads: Classic seafood spot in Titusville

There are a lot of reasons to visit the Space Coast — hiking in Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, swimming and exploring Canaveral National Seashore.

But here’s another good one: Dixie Crossroads Seafood Restaurant.

The unpretentious, sprawling restaurant is nearly always crowded with long waits, and thus it offers lots of benches, shaded areas and fish ponds and fountains to help keep folks amused.

What they’re waiting for is authentic, fresh Florida seafood, some you can’t find anywhere else, such as rock shrimp served in a great variety of ways. (You don’t find fresh Indian River mullet on many menus either.)

The meal starts with popular and addictive hushpuppies — cornball fritters, lightly dusted with powdered sugar.

You will hear many people dismiss Dixie Crossroads as a tourist trap filled with kitschy shrimp statues and sun-burnt northerners. They’re right. Others will point out that it’s popular with locals, too, because the food is unique and the place is just fun. They’re right, too.
