    The main thing I like about Dawson's is the friendly staff that always remembers your name and your likes and dislikes. My wife had the crab cake appetizer (2 crab cakes) and I had Rubin and substituted a garden salad for fries. We split the salad and I took home half a Rubin. We had a bottle of Boen Pinot Noir that was excellent.

    We were back in the Speedway area after moving to Texas three years ago. Naturally, we wanted to have dinner at Dawson’s on Main and met friends there for a great evening of food and fellowship. The pot roast was as good if not better than I remember, and it was almost as if we hadn’t been away. Anytime we are back in the Speedway area, we will eat at Dawson’s.

    Continually, one of THE best restaurants in Indiana, not just Indy. Elite food at very fair prices. The nicest staff and bartenders in Indy. Steak, pasta, seafood - what more do you want. THE best calamari on the planet is found here.

    Great menu and food quality. Multiple options for cuisine and drinks. Server was really busy and a little behind on drinks and the food took what I thought was longer than normal. Noise level was distracting but it was dinner rush hour. I’ve always had great food here so the criticisms are minor and I’ll definitely be back.
