At the Daily Dish, the focus is on comfort food that is seasonally inspired, sustainable and locally sourced. We believe that the Farm to Fork experience benefits everyone from small farmers to our diners. We visit local produce markets to purchase seasonal, fresh produce. Our pita, focaccia & pizza dough are made daily. Our salmon & chicken are organic. We use fresh, pasture fed beef. We make our mozzarella, pickles, sauces, dressings & vinaigrettes in house from scratch. The cocktail bar has local tap beer, fun cocktails and a varied wine list. We follow these principles to cater your special event.

Great place to bring kids! They have a very reasonable kids menu and the adult entrees are magnificent. The beer selection features very local beers (which is great in my opinion).

While the physical space is a bit shabby and ambience is lacking, the food was simple but very good--made fresh and very tasty. Great for a casual lunch or dinner.

Our dinner on a Saturday night with friends was, for the first time at the Daily Dish, a mixed bag. We were probably the last reservation at 8:15 but our waiter, who was new to us, acted as though it was midnight and he had to get home. He brought our entrees while we hadn't yet finished appetizers and was intrusive through the meal.
Apart from that annoyance, the food was delicious and imaginative.

A great and steady neighborhood restaurant, but folks enjoy driving to it too.

Extremely bad food.

Our waiter, an "old hand" at Daily Dish, did a marvelous job of handling our multi-generational table. I think the problem was insufficient kitchen help, especially in delivering a brownie sundae as dessert that our waiter delivered swiftly but had been delayed by the kitchen.

We had family in town for the new year and made reservations at this little gem. When we got there, I realized I had been there years ago but didn't remember much about it. We were very satisfied with our experience, the service was great, the food was great and the ambiance was great.

Food and staff are great - chairs are not comfortable and noise level is high
