Due to the pandemic, my parents have not been out to dinner in 15 months. Service was excellent, our waitress was attentive, courteous and made sure our dining experience was great. Food was hot and tasted great!

Frankly, this place was more than I expected. Just a wonderful experience all around. Service was pleasant and prompt, food was excellent. I had the fish and chips, my host had the prime rib and my wife had crusted chicken. Each dish got rave reviews. Also can recommend the Eulano Pinot Noir. Soft, medium bodied with cherry and plum notes. excellent.

Beautiful place, we sat in the bar this time and it was so much better for a change. The music was better, the a/c was terrific and Serita ( hope that is what her name was) was a great waitress and had charisma and it made the entire seating just perfect. We all had good meals and we will definitely be returning as we come at least once a month..

We could not get in earlier since it looked busy. We took what was available. This time the itches was slipping a bit. We had a table by 7:15 and know the closing time is 8:30. It was just my son and I. His fries were a bit overdone and my crab cakes were burnt on the edges, but we ate the food as it was not too bad. No need to bother the staff, but let them know.

We have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed it. The food was very bland. Paid a $2.00 up charge for the filet which I did not mind and it was terrible. It had no seasoning to it. Had to drown it in A-1 to get it down. Other than the filet the rest of the meals in our party were good.

The atmosphere was really nice as we have not been at a decent restaurant in a year. The food, atmosphere and our server made for a great night out.

My husband and I had an excellent time Monday evening! This was our first night out since we were married (a small covid ceremony), and everything was perfect. The espresso martinis were delicious, and my filet was cooked perfectly! We always had a great time and a delicious meal pre-covid, and I’m thrilled that we felt exactly the same this time around! We felt incredibly safe with the tables spaced out, and service was amazing as always. We cannot wait to come back soon!

This was definitely an off night for Dawson’s. I dine here frequently and find the food and service to be consistent; however, service was extremely slow and our server was missing most of the time; other servers and management were running around and didn’t notice our attempts to get their attention.
Glad it was not my first time dining here.

Went on a Monday night for the rib special - it is a great deal. Got the full rack which was a little too much. Fall off the bones ribs with 2 sides- very tasty. My wife got the fried chicken salad- so much she couldn't eat it all either. Even though we were both full, we decided to get the deep dish cookie and ice cream- again really big and good. Prices are a little higher than other restaurants in the area but they give you your money's worth.
