As usual the food was very good, but the service leaves a lot to be desired. Of the 4 entrees ordered, two were incorrectly made. The menu did not list all of the ingredients in one of the special Fall menu appetizers making it inedible to one member of our group.

Food good except this is the second visit in a row where appetizers were served haphazardly. My salad came 10 minutes before my husband's soup. No reason for that. Meals should be served together.

I would love the opportunity to speak with you about this visit because this is definitely not what we train our staff to do. I would also love to find out who your server was.

Super friendly service!
Bartenders were on pointe. Servers very efficient and knowledgeable. Love that the manager comes to each table to check in. Rachel was great.
Food was perfect! Prime rib. All you can eat ribs. Lobster bisque was superb! Shrimp and scallops cooked perfectly.

Our experience at JB Dawson's was great. We made reservations online and got seated shortly after we arrived with very little wait time. Our waiter was very informative and helpful and the food was great. Everyone in our party ordered something different and all seemed to enjoy what they got. The apple cobbler for dessert was delicious also!

Food is a little pricey but it was good. Service was slow for a random Monday night - wasn't overcrowded or even a wait- so not sure why it took so long for food and drinks. We were given the bill to pay and then brought a second bill which was charged to our card already that we handed for payment because the server for got to add drinks to it. I understand that we did consume those drinks but the change in price should've been brought to our attention prior to charging the card. In actuality we authorized the first price and were handed back a bill with a significant difference. I just felt that was a little rude.

Been there 3 times. First 2 times outstanding. This past time server took order correct. My wife’s filet mignon Was ordered butterflied and extra well done came out butterflies and pink in the middle. Server was rarely around to check on us. He took good 10-15 minutes before he checked on us after he brought our entree. Manager made good on a new filet mignon And took care of dessert. But we did have to flag the server down for drink refills.
