Welcome to masondixonsaloon

hospitality IS OUR WEAPON


About us

What makes us tick.

How we run things.

Established in June of 2010, we proudly present one of the hottest additions to historic downtown Main St.  Come see how we present our take on Southern hospitality with our full menu and fantastic bar.  Come for the food and stay for the drinks.  Two levels with 18 - 50” LED TVs to watch your favorite sports.  Lower level is also available to rent for your own private party.

What was once just a vision by Joe and his father Dennis to bring a hip yet fashionably rugged saloon, they turned that vision into reality in 2010 with the opening of Mason Dixon Saloon helping cement Lower Main St from a tired district into a new destination party avenue for locals and tourists alike.  WE take great pride in bringing our own taste of mid-western hospitality to each and every person that walks thru our doors.


The urge for good food & drink is the same as the
urge to go on living.
