About Us

Palmyra Pub and Eatery was built in 2013 upon the land of one of Dixon’s favorite long-time restaurants, The Brown Shingle. At the time of build it was named Bombdiggity. In 2015, after a change in ownership, Tom and Robin Canode renamed the restaurant That Place on Palmyra, as it sits along Palmyra Road, somewhat off the beaten path.

In 2019, Matt Prescott, owner of the Candlelight Inns of Sterling, Rock Falls and Clinton (Iowa), leased the building from the Canodes. Upon taking possession, he tweaked the menu, offering Candlelight’s famous Chicken George, as well as purchasing a BBQ smoker, and now featuring smoked ribs, pork and brisket. He also simplified the name to Palmyra Pub and Eatery.

The staff at Palmyra Pub and Eatery strive to exceed customer’s expectations with superior service, great food (including burger meat purchased locally at Oliver’s Market), and a great selection of craft beers and specialty drinks. We are dedicated to providing an enjoyable dining experience in a cozy, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, inside or on the patio.

We are very proud to be a member of the Dixon community and are overwhelmed by the warm welcome. We look forward to being an integral part of the community for many years.
