    Table was next to kitchen door and was freezing every time it opened. Table next to ours was 4 women who must have been hard of hearing (or they wanted to be heard outside). Wait staff was pleasant but hard to get her attention. My date was under impressed for how expensive the meal was. However, the food and drink were excellent!

    The food was very good. Great value. It’s very loud though. The biscuits with the food were obviously not fresh. They should make fresh ones daily.

    We had reservations and were seated at a table in the bar area, right at the doorway. It was 20 degrees outside, so it was simply too cold to enjoy. Constant loud banging from the door along with frigid blasts and foot traffic marred an otherwise a good experience...but I doubt if the Titanic reviews would feature anything about food or entertainment. This table should not exist in a purported fine dining venue unless diners are made aware it's a 'make-do' consolation prize like eating at the bar.

    I always love DG’s lunch! The service was extremely slow, it took over 30 mins to place an order. Half of my party’s sides were pretty cold. Not my usual experience. Hopefully it was just the holidays!

    Great overall experience. I enjoyed the pace of the evening. I didn’t feel rushed. My only issue is my steak was beyond medium rare, but otherwise delicious and I didn’t bother to mention it. Our sever, Lacey, was fantastic being attentive but respecting our privacy as well.

    Daniel George is a great place for a celebration. We were there for lunch to celebrate my friend’s birthday and it was her first time to dine there. She was very impressed with her meat and vegetable choices for lunch. Food was very good. It was quiet when we arrived at 11:30, but filled up rapidly and seemed like everyone was there celebrating - a lot of Christmas parties, I think. Main course was served very quickly, but it took a little while to get the chocolate lava cake for dessert. We probably should have ordered that when we first sat down. It did get very noisy with all the groups there celebrating which was the only negative thing I could say about our lunch.

    Our local eatery which we have been to many times. Shrimp appetizer is fantastic. Fish entree as well. Lamb chops not so much. We bring our own wine and can’t believe they didn’t have cab glasses. Overall a good experience but not as good as meals of the past.

    The restaurant was packed for lunch. Very noisy but still the service and food was delicious. I would recommend for a girls lunch versus business lunch due to noise level.

    Very good lunch and reasonable prices. Tasty cheese biscuit but only gave 1 each and was not very warm. Small portions but ok for lunch. A small salad with the entree would be nice.

    The sides were delicious but my filet was a bit over and unseasoned. Service was great. We were there celebrating our 25th anniversary and ended up sitting at a table right beside a very large loud group so it kind of lessened the romance.
