Not my first time at Dawson's but my first review. First off, the environment is very friendly, and relaxing. When it's not cool or windy we especially like sitting in the outdoor seating areas, as Main Street in the evening is pretty calm. For this visit I had an appetizer as my dinner which was the calamari steak, and mashed sweet ... read more

Dawson's on Main has been a go-to spot for lunch for me and my co-workers for a while. The sandwiches, salads and wraps are all good and the Pick-2 for lunch lets you mix and match items to make a great meal.

Love this place! I normally always get the tenderloin and decided to switch it up last week. Got Tony's favorite chicken and they did not disappoint! Food was hot and delicious even after we got it home.

We went on a Saturday night and had the prime rib, onion rings and Garlic mashed potatoes. I also had my first hot toddy. Food was delicious. It was our first time there. It will not be our last.

Blackened Fish Tacos and Tenderloin were both VERY good. Tacos were huge Mango salsa was perfectly made. Tenderloin was not too thin. No complaints would go there again and again.

The staff was warm and cheerful even though we were there near closing time. We loved the spinach artichoke dip, yum! And the French onion soup was rich and filling. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich. He ate half and saved the rest for today. We are down from Chicago, this is a must stop for us.

Lots of variety in this quaint restaurant just up from
The speedway.  Huge tenderloin sandwiches, large portions of onion rings. Drinks were very good and strong. I had the calamari and it was thick cut and not what i am used to so the texture was off to me but the sauce was amazing.  I will go back and try something different.  G

My best friend and I ate dinner here to support our local restaurants. I ordered the Filet Mignon with a baked potato and broccoli as my side. My steak was cooked perfectly!

Lots of variety from salads to sandwiches, fish tacos, something for everyone! I got the blackened fish tacos which have cilantro rice,  and mango salsa.

Wonderful dinner on their outdoor patio!  We celebrated my brother's birthday tonight and it was a fun evening.  Our server Jaden had a fun personality and provided great service.  We started with spinach-artichoke dip as an appetizer.

We hadn't been there in a while and wondered why after another great dining experience.  Love their calamari!  Food was great and service even better.  The big treat though was real tableware, real shakers and real condiment bottles.  Shame on those other 'nice' places offering plastic utensils and packets.
John V. via - Aug 11, 2020
A great neighborhood, family owned spot for big American meals. Try the tenderloin or the spinach artichoke dip! Inquire about drink specials - great bar.

Ron,the bartender is the best. He's always on it. Takes care of his customers in any situation. Thursday night's half-price martinis are excellent for the ladies. We'll continue to visit Dawson's as we have been.

I mist say this was one of the more pleasant dining experiences I have had in some times! Sat in the bar and had a great meal. Great atmosphere. Exceptional customer service. Guy who seemed to run the bar was worth his weight in Gold! If I had a restaurant I would hire him away! Great food and time! Thank you!
