The staff was a little unorganized when we arrived. We were seated quick on mother's day afternoon. We had the pretzel bread sticks for an appetizer they are superb also had breaded tenderloin & the grilled tenderloin both were excellent. Rachel was our server she was very friendly & provided excellent service.

Typically I would hands down recommend this restaurant. Our Easter lunch was awful. My daughter and I ordered off the Easter menu (casserole). It was cold and you could tell it had been sitting for awhile. My husband ordered a tenderloin that was cold too. The only hot dishes were for my two grandkids. Their food was so hot they couldn’t eat it right away. Our only saving grace was our waitress. She was very nice, friendly, and attentive. We’ve been here several times, and we’ve always enjoyed our food. Easter was our one and only bad experience.

Tried a new dish - Thai fish. It was really good. Their computers went down and we could not pay our bill with a card, had to use cash. Fortunately we had enough! Good time.

It’s a nice local restaurant with decent food, if you sit in the bar area. I wouldn’t recommend the normal dining area (unless you come with children). We were seated in the back room (that resembled a church basement) for my mothers birthday dinner. Needless to say, it was not the atmosphere we wanting for her special dinner.

Hostess was great, she had our table reserved and we didn’t wait upon arrival. The noise level was a bit much, extremely loud. Service was good, staff was just extremely busy. The food was fantastic! Will definitely dine here again.

The waiter didnt know the specials. The vinegar and oil bottles had dust and cob webs all over them and asked to speak to a manager about this they send a different bus boy over to get them and never seen the manager. The food at best was mediocre. Never Again

They were very busy, Lots of folks out for Valentine's Day - we had a choice of a long table in the bar, sitting with lots of others, or at our own table in the banquet room . Overall not bad, was just a very busy night as expected.

I had seen good reviews for Dawson's Too, & heard positive things about the original location, so we decided to try it. We were seated next to the rear hallway, and for some reason there was a cold breeze most of the time. When we asked about moving, our server didn't respond.
When we were seated our server asked if we wanted drinks to start, we all asked for water. She never offered to bring a beer/wine list, after bringing our waters she didn't come back for quite a while, so we had to ask someone else for it.
Two of us ordered the Black & Bleu Top Sirloin, both medium. Both were done beyond medium, barely any pink in the middle, overall not that great. Since our server seemed to be gone again neither of us sent the steak back, but we were disappointed in the dish overall.
One person ordered the grouper, which she said was great. She said the black beans & peppers that came with it tasted like they had been dumped out of a can, with no spices added. One person ordered the Salmon Diablo, and said the both the fish and the sides were very tasty.
Overall it was pretty disappointing, we were hoping to find a new place we would enjoy, but I'm not sure we would go back.

Food and drink always excellent. staff friendly and hardworking. felt staff was overstretched this particular night as it was homecoming in Brownsburg and they were expecting large numbers. we had reservations and were promptly seated but our waitress had a huge load. Felt they should have planned better for a Friday night with likelihood of increased volume. great food and price appropriate. Great waitress.

Excellent service from Donna in the bar at a high top. Very lively crowd so not a place to go for a quiet meal. Fantastic tenderloins, salmon salad, pizza, shrimp and fish. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Desserts fantastic too. Upside down German chocolate cake delicious. Great place to go with friends for good food, good price and great service.

We went for trivia night and were not particularly happy with the experience. The hostess seemed annoyed to see us and told us she couldn't find our reservation because their wi-fi was down so we would just have to sit at the bar. The food tasted just ok, but was fairly expensive. I love the Dawson's on Main so I was a little disappointed with this experience.

The food was good but not great for the price. Spent a fair amount of time waiting from drink refills and such. Real problem was we made our reservation via Open Table and the restaurant reserved a table for us in the bar area, which was a problem, because 3 of our party of 5 were under 21. As a result we had to sit outside in 86 degree heat (in suits/ties and typical church clothing).

Sat for 20min until our drinks were served.
Sat another 50 minutes and for our food that never came. Never saw our waitress Elizabeth again. People who entered after us were served befor us. Complained to the host. Waited 5 minutes for our waitress to appear. We received credit for our appetizer but not for the drinks. LOUD atmosphere. Lousy experience. Stay far away from this very poorly run establishment!!

Our service was great; those in our party ordered: crab cakes, bang bang shrimp, steak, cranberry/chicken salad, breaded tenderloin and pasta. Everything was excellent except crab cakes...we all agreed they were too moist/almost runny in an unnatural way...crab cakes should be a bit drier and meaty. Definitely nothing worth not returning; we’ll be back soon!!
