This was a b-day celebration despite the honoree being in denial. Lol. Half price bottles of wine were a nice surprise. Friendly wait staff (who was also the bartender.) Food was hot and tasty and plentiful! Cozy atmosphere. Just what we were looking for.
Wonderful place to eat. A great waitress.
Susan Steak was amazing. Salad was very fresh. Service was great
Best pot roast ever!!!
We have never been disappointed here. Whether you come as a group, party of 2, or single the people are just great. Join in conversations in the bar or stay in the dinning room and keep your own company. The food is always hot and tasty. Alcoholic or non the drinks are delicious and priced just right...the Long Islands are great!
Firecracker shrimp appetizer, followed by French Onion Soup, then the main course, Jeremy was an awesome server. We enjoyed our dinner.
Great service great food
Crab cakes were excellent! Looking forward to returning to try the Seafood Trio!
Food is always good and the staff are friendly. Usually have a great special as well.
Christmas Eve dinner
Great experience. We come on this night every year and love it!
As usual we had a wonderful meal and great service. The cake was amazing! Thank you for a special meal.
Love this place!!
We ordered the crab cakes, pretzel breadsticks, campfire steak bites, and pot roast. It was all delicious.
Steak was delicious! Black & bleu was awesome. Service was outstanding!!
The service was great. The food was very good. I would highly recommend for a nice lunch. The lemon cake was exceptionally good.
My wife and I each ordered a steak. a different cut for each of us. both were prepared exactly as we ordered them and they tasted excellent. We sat in the bar area and Ron was excellent. he waited on the tables as well as single handedly was the bar tender for the entire restaurant. great experience from start to finish. If you want posh don't go; if you want great food and a great time, do yourself a favor and go.
We celebrated a birthday. The food was very goo, service was wonderful, and the Long Island Ice Tea was excellent. It’s our favorite go-to place!!
Very good- ample portions to price
Service was very good and quality of food was very good
Our waitress Donna was amazing. The atmosphere was perfect. Wide variety of options on the menu.
When we arrived, no one greeted us the host was on the phone and did not even give us eye contact. Let her know that we had a reservation she took us to a table in the back and I asked for a booth she said those are for people with reservations and I go WE HAVE A RESERVATION which I shared with you when you finally got off the phone. Next the server when I asked questions about my options failed to tell me the pan seared fish that I ordered would come with a sauce that looked like baby food (not a good look). Sent it back and when it came back out the fish was no pan seared it was cooked in butter or some type of oil and my veggies were now cold. Truly overpriced and will not be coming back also plan on letting my friend know to SKIP this place.
Food was not as hot as it should've been. Otherwise good
Food was good, as was the value. Wait staff were pleasant, however, forgot salads, and failed to check back after meal started. The Plus —- roomy booths and separate bar area. The Minus—dated flooring, physical surroundings, and could use some deep cleaning, paint, etc. Overall, an okay place for everyday dining.
Fun time, good food and service.
Great food in a cozy local setting. Very consistently good experience.
Excellent service and delicious fresh lunch. We loved the Salmon BLTs, chicken sandwich, turkey club
Every meal here is special. This time was a fun lunch meeting some new friends. Perfect environment to share some apps and talk.
It was a good dinner and our waitress was wonderful!! It wasn’t busy when we first got there but full by the time we left. Dawson’s never fails us.
Good food and great service
Reservation was ready when I arrived. Was able to select another smaller table. Staff was very pleasant. Food was prepared well and tasted great
Ate here our last night in Indy. Food was excellent, the noise level was a bit high in the bar area, but overall it was a great meal!
Great service with great food. Always an enjoyable evening.
My wife and I celebrated our 41st. Anniversary. We really enjoyed the food and the service was outstanding. All the wait staff looked like they really enjoyed their job and were always on the go. We will recommend Dawson's to our family and friends.
Jeremy was great as always!
Good food, however the decor definitely needs an update.
Great waitress Callie. Food outstanding.
Good food and drinks, friendly service, outside seating on a beautiful night.
It was another great meal at Dawson’s. Connie’s Duo is the best! Highly recommend this place!
Great as usual.
Portions were more than ample and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was very upbeat, everyone was smiling and friendly. We had a great evening!
