    Our Server left money on the table. did not ask if we wanted another beverage or even if we wanted dessert. Little disappointing. The menu has been revamped since the last time we went there and it is excellent. Well done. Wine list is also great.

    We where going there for my young twins birthday. We had reservations via open table, which always works well. We where seated promptly and visited by our waitress fairly quickly. Drinks where ordered, and received fairly quickly, our order placed. Then the problems start... I asked for sweetener, which is not on the table. It took my son asking the person up front, to no avail, my wife, getting up and getting another person to go to the back to get a set of sweetener... Literally more than 10 minutes, completely unacceptable. The salad came out way before anything else, was obviously her meal, next my twins meals, then a wait, nearly 10 minutes for my meal and another 5 minutes for my sons... Horrible timing.

    We like going to Dawson's Too because even though it appears busy, you go in and it isn't terribly packed. We made reservations just in case and were promptly seated. I like the food there. I just wish the pizza I got had a little more flavor and my husband had coleslaw, that also needed some more flavor. We had great service!

    Last minute E-Reservations for 7pm by Open Table put us at head of line on a very busy Friday night, with a line out the door. Two kitchens and 2 bars made for quick service. "Horseradish-encrusted sirloin" and "Tony's chicken" arrived PROMPTLY, PERFECTLY PREPARED, with ATTENTIVE SERVICE. Crowded parking lot should not deter because spacious rooms for large groups and pleasant, efficient service absorb the crowds. Atmospere is spacious but utilitarian, ripe for improvement. Restaurant measures up to recommendations. Wednesday all-you can eat and Thursday wine specials are attractive.

    This restaurant is full of incredibly friendly servers and staff. It is well decorated and stocked with huge televisions. The location is convenient and the parking is easy. The booth was very comfortable. The food was good. The quality of my Horseradish Sirloin was very high and tasted like a very high quality cut of beef. It was very tender, well cooked, and flavorful. My only concern was the added panko bread crumbs on the top. They were not buttered, so they had not flavor and no crispness either. The potato cakes were very tasty and well prepared, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The salads are not included and not offered so we felt that we shouldn't order one. Thank you for the fun dessert! Very, very loud

    We made reservations for Mother's Day and still waited at least 15 minutes for a table. The hostess was friendly but less than professional. We sat at our table awhile, waiting for a server to arrive with a menu before finally discovering that it was buffet only today. The decor and the buffet lacked visual appeal, not to mention any kind of vegetables (they later added green beans); there was a lot of meat. Fortunately, everyone in our party agreed that everything we tried tasted good.

    I just moved to Brownsburg and had some family in town. We looked into eating at Dawson's Too. We made reservations and were seated promptly as we arrived around our reservation time. Our waitress was attentive and nice. We all liked the food. I think this will be one of our favorite places to go in Brownsburg.

    We love coming to Dawson's at least once a month and always enjoy the food. We've never had anything bad! We normally sit at the bar and did so this time as well. I ordered the chicken quesadillas but when I received them they were steak. The waitress was prompt in sending it back to the kitchen and I received my new one fairly quickly, however due to the inconvenience I would've thought a free dessert or our app would have been taken off our check. This isn't a deal breaker for us, we will be back...but a little customer service goes a long way!

    First time at the restaurant They had my reservation and the greeting at the restaurant The food was excellent. Took a date. The noise level was a bit much at times for conversation. May have just been a large party that evening. The waiter was a nice young man. It took a while for us to get ready to order, as we were having a bit of a get acquainted chat. He eventually, kind of gave up on us. Once we did order. He was back to being attentive. I would recommend this restaurant. The food was delicious, and reasonably priced.

    The prices at DT's are the only thing that remind one of Dawson's on Main. The Loaded Potato Soup was unedible, a salty, grey, glutinous concoction loaded with bacon bits. To their credit, both bowls of the soup were taken off our bill after we asked the waitress to take them away barely eaten. The salmon patties looked beautiful, had great texture, but no taste and the dipping sauce that accompanied them burned the palate. The waitress rose above the pedestrian food by giving excellent service, catering to our party's confusing al-a-carte order, and being attentive without hovering over us. For the price, however, I'd head over to Boulder Creek in Brownsburg....or Dawson's on Main if I want really superb, expensive food.

    We go to Dawson's Too on a regular basis. The food is great - faves include Nachos, Quesadilla, Sirloin, Salmon & any of the pastas. The staff is attentive and friendly. They have plenty of tables to accommodate big groups both in the bar and in the back rooms. It can get loud. But we keep going back so they're doing many things right!

    this was our first time here, and we found the food to be tasty, hot and enjoyable. The cost is slightly less but every bit as good as the sister restaurants in Brownsburg and Avon. While the atmosphere may be a little less upscale. The noise level was high, from hard floors and walls and ceilings but in a booth we were still able to communicate sufficiently. Our waitress was quick to arrive, sufficiently attentive, and gave us our check quickly when we were done. The lighting was cozy but sufficient to see what we were eating. So try this place if you haven't been before.

    We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary Thursday evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will plan to return. The food was fabulous. Our server Donna, was a joy to talk to and she was most gracious as she approached our table. We like coming to check out a new restaurant for our anniversary and have dined several times at the Speedway location. The food in Speedway has also been very enjoyable. We will most likely refer friends and family to both locations!! Thanks for making our anniversary memorable as well as enjoyable..
