    We loved this place. We were greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and seated promptly. Our server, Erica, was friendly and attentive. We had matzo ball soup and tomato bisque to start off and both were great. The chicken and brie sandwich was served on a ciabatta roll which was toasted and everything about that sandwich was superb. Chose to have the shoestring onions as the side and they were great. We also got a hamburger which was cooked perfectly. Lastly, we ordered the seasonal berry crisp which had ice cream on top. I like ice cream to melt into the crisp, but the ice cream scoop was so huge, that most of it did not melt in time. And the serving was ginormous (but good!)

    True to its' ambition, Dish n' Dat is an updated take on a diner. In that vein breakfast is always available and the burgers are solid. Everything is about comfort from the food to the seating. So while it may not be you first choice for a special occasion, it is always a great meal with the family with lots of options, few duds, and even a selection of vegetarian options.

    When we arrived it took a long time (almost 15 minutes) for the hostess to acknowledge anyone - there were two groups ahead of us in line. Also, there were several tables with dirty dishes that were not getting bused during this time; it was almost like they had called a staff meeting and everyone was in back or something. Once the hostess came over and started seating people, things went much more smoothly. Both our hostess and waitress were nice, and I noticed that the tables around us were being bused more quickly. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. I would go back.

    I think the title says it all; It's OK. Nothing to write home about but the food is reasonable and the price fits the type of place well. I'd go back for a quick snack, but it is not really somewhere to take the wife on date night

    We went for my daughters birthday. Food was ok. Two of us got burgers - one was pink as requested and the other was not. Ceasar salad croutons were gritty and the dressing wasn't great. Very expensive for what we got. The last time we went my reaction was the same - costly and just ok.

    We had members in our group that wanted both breakfast and lunch and this was a great option. Food was very good, but service was slow and not attentive. Had to search for wait staff to refill coffee and water, and request ketchup for home fries. Also had heard ahead of time that is was a family spot, so wasn't surprised that there were several screaming toddlers, which isn't anything the restaurant can control, but don't come looking for a quiet setting. Stains on the wall next to our booth could be cleaned. So this review may sound more negative than positive, but overall, it was good, and I would both return for another visit, and recommend this restaurant to others.

    We look forward to our frequent visits to Dish N Dat, knowing the management really cares whether our experience has been a good one. On the occasions when there has been a glitch, it has been handled with efficiency and care. The specials are usually that. They cater to families but there is plenty to please the adult palate. Only distance keeps us from being there even more often.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/3/2013
    Unfortunately, we went for breakfast at 10am, and were not served until 11:20. We had 4 adults and three children with us and it was extremely difficult to come hungry for breakfast and wait that long. We only ordered waffles and egg dishes so it shouldn't have been that difficult. The manager apologized and indicated he was down a chef, but the place was empty and that reason didn't quite make sense. The manager did provide the entire meal, once it came, at no cost which I would have demanded had he not offered, but it would be hard to come back with kids because we can't risk waiting that long and potentially paying a lot for a meal.

    Great food and service. Not the same burger fare. 5-Alarm Burger was quite flavorful and lives up to its "ouch" description. Brooklyn Burger had the toppings of a Rueben and flavors went perfectly with the burger. The food was served hot implying its freshness. The strawberry milkshake was thick and creamy and extremely generous. The service was friendly and enthusiastic; guests felt welcome and appreciated. Reservations recommended due to its popularity.

    All we wanted was a nice breakfast,what we got was the Worse service ever!! The waitress was never to be found and was actually rude to us several times. My poor kids drank my water because they were so desperate for something to drink.My coffee was horrible,tasted burnt or old, the waitress was quick to inform us "it's fresh just strong", Starbucks coffee is strong, your coffee is Burnt! The food was fine however the lack of service really overshadowed any redeeming qualities about the food. We would have mention it to the manager but she was swamped and couldn't be found. My husband left a note on the bill, I'll be interested to see if he gets a reply from the manager. We will not return anytime soon.Too bad, great location.
