Dawson's On Main
We did make a reservation due to Indy in May. We ordered appetizers as our meal the crab cakes and beef tips were fantastic. The wedge salad was delicious. This is always a go to place in Speedway. And, you never know who will be there in May!
We had an amazing dinner. The food was good the service was even better. They were cordial and fast!
The service was great. No problems. They had the bar door open to where we were sitting, but closed it shortly after and I'm not sure why. Didn't bother any of us that were in there. Always good food and friendly servers!!
I was very pleased with my visit to Dawson’s. I made a reservation on open table, and I actually got in early.The server took my order quickly and she even brought two pitchers, one water,one sprite because I mentioned being dehydrated from spending the day at the Speedway. The steak and potatoes were excellent and reasonably priced. My only issue was that the server never came back once to check on me. Fortunately the food was great but I just thought it was odd. She was super nice but I eventually had to call her over to get my check. But I would definitely go back if I am in town. In fact, I will be at the race on memorial weekend.
Good food, very large portions. Very busy, not enough staff. Our server was very unfriendly, never smiled and would avoid eye contact, did the bare minimum. Pricey, an up charge for a salad?
Great place for a great dinner after a long day at the speedway.
The hostesses were very friendly and our waitress was on top of things! The pizza was delicious!! We’ll definitely go back again!
Our first visit to Dawson's. Very good food and service. I would definitely recommend it!
Calamari Steaks are the best calamari I’ve ever had. #1 reason we continue to dine at Dawson’s. my husband and I have learned not to get the steaks anymore; However, the guest we took got one and had the same complaint as we had in the past. The steaks looks great coming out..cooked to perfection, but time after time, they are tough and chewy. The mahi mahi was meal of choice for me last time. I had it blackened..it was delicious. Service was excellent.
Only writing so I can move to the next page. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Jeremy was our server and he was great! The food was wonderful. Our table was ready when we arrived and the overall experience was very enjoyable.
Will was amazing and as usual we had an awesome experience!
Dawson’s on Main is always great and a fun experience. We love meeting friends there. Great food and great staff.
Met for dinner on Sunday with a group of 9. I did not know that on Sunday there is a limited menu, but we enjoyed what we ordered. The spinach artichoke dip was excellent! There was a graduation party being held in a private room so it took away from the usually wonderful service. They were very busy. Good experience overall.
The food and service was excellent. All the food was hot. Fries and fried fish were crispy.
My one negative is that I thought the prices were high for type of foods offered.
Great food. Server was great and funny!! Everyone super nice. Definitely will be back.
Was a very friendly place. Food was great and service was awesome.
Everything about our dinner at Dawson’s was outstanding The rave reviews on Open Table from previous diners were accurate & helped us select Dawson’s for dinner before our flight back to California. Dawson’s delivered a San Francisco quality dining experience at less than half the cost. Indy diners are lucky to have Dawson’s.
Friendly service, nice staff, food always excellent!
Waitress was very nice and food was amazing
Great as always. Never fails. Jeremy is the best
The food was AMAZING and the service was great
Can't wait to go back
Dawson's has Consistently good food, ample portions, and friendly service. It is a comfortable place for meeting friends, or talking over business. Dawson’s is our go-to place with our out-of-town guests!
Excellent choices on menu, great service, enjoyable ambiance. Another great dinner at Dawsons!
One of the best neighborhood restaurants in Indianapolis. Excellent food, great staff and reasonable prices.
The breaded pork tenderloin is fabulous! This is real pork tenderloin not some pork fritter and not some “big as your head and thin as paper” object masquerading as tenderloin.
We have been several times and the last few times things have been salty, calamari, and my husband fish. We were given a spinach dip appetizer it was a miss order (thank you). It was average to much either cream cheese or sour cream, not enough spinach. It had quite a tang.
We have always enjoyed Dawson's and will try again I'm sure.
Went for lunch with a group of 9. We were able to make a reservation ahead of time and were seated upon arrival. Pork Tenderloin sandwich is always great. You won’t leave hungry.
An enjoyable atmosphere with well flavored food. Their service is very prompt.
Went for Easter brunch. It was Buffett style, so there was a decent variety of food. There was quite a bit of proteins, and not a whole lot of extra side dishes or appetizer type food. For $24/adult you most definitely wouldn’t walk away hungry, but again, variety besides proteins were not plenty. The actual restaurant was clean, and the noise level was quiet enough you could hear the other person from across the booth without yelling.
I have had many filets and steaks, and my filet Sat. night was the best ever. Great cut of tender beef cooked to perfection, which for me is medium rare. My husband and his friend loved the half rack of ribs with three fried shrimp - the surf and turf. Calamari appetizer was a hit. You can't "grab a bite" here, as it's not speedy.
Service was somewhat slow, seemed to be a backup in the bar. Once our order was taken things seemed to move along much better. Food was very good.
Fantastic food, large portions, reasonable prices. My hub and I went both Friday and Saturday night this weekend. Every couple we take there loves it.
Dawson’s on Main has consistently great food, friendly service, and reasonable prices. Definitely a”must” for anyone trying out Speedway’s dining options!
Great food with OUTSTANDING service! We ventured out of downtown Indy to find this gem in Speedway. I had a party of 8. We were seated promptly and our server made sure we never had an empty glass and the food was brought out in a very efficient manner.
Food was excellent and plentiful. Our party of three was very pleased with everything. Love Dawson’s Speedway.
Best place in Speedway to eat. Best food and best service!
The pot roast was delicious. Good portion. Son’s kids meal was generous too. I would definitely dine here again.
Again, a successful meal at Dawsons. A couple of things that brought it down for me. The hostess was a tad rude and I felt like I was an interruption. The server was sweet and pretty attentive (it was super busy), but she didnt introduce herself and I forgot to ask. a teeny tiny hiccup. Again, as I said on social media. Dawsons is my "Go To" place and I love it! This visit I still do, just a smidge less.
I had Tony’s Favorite Chicken. It was delicious and hearty. I had enough leftover for a second meal. The service was great, the waiter was fun and engaging. I would recommend trying this place.
