My dad suggested it because he loves the calamari and he was right. It was pretty delicious and in strips; not your typical calamari rings. The sauce was slightly different too but still just as awesome. Tom's Chicken was amazing and made we wish I would've got that instead of the chicken parm but that was pretty great too.

Nice serving of the smothered chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It needed a little seasoning. Love eating there and most definitely will return.

This was my 1st time going here. Upon arrival at 4:15 p.m. we were informed we had until 6:30 to be done before a reservation which was awkward because I've never been told that a restaurant before. The food was pretty good. We ordered Steak, jalapeno potatoe cakes, and chicken parmesan. The potato cakes have peppers in them so I was ... read more

Was there for the "500 Breakfast Club" which meets the first Saturday of the month in which Dawson's so graciously hosts for the club. Was my first one and the first time being at Dawson's and I liked it very much. Good food. Great staff.

Here for my first Indy 500. Two meals at Dawson’s (so far) with my wife. Two thumbs up from each of us. Cobb salad was great, the house salad by itself was above the norm. The meat loaf & sausage sourdough sandwich, with onions and peppers, was a meal to last. Tried the jalapeño potato cakes, not too spicy, very flavorful. Wait staff ... read more

I actually was skeptical of Dawson's. It seemed like a tourist trap with an unimaginative menu. But it was good to reserve judgment. The service was friendly and attentive and the portions were great. Everyone was pleased with their order. My blackened chicken sandwich was delicious, but the real star was the jalapeno potatoes cakes.

Nice people and excellent prime rib. My wife and I met a great couple at the bar during our hour wait. The pour on my Black Label rocks was almost to the rim of the highball. We split the 14oz prime rib and a salad, plus potatoes and asparagus. We left very satisfied. It’s not trendy, big city, posh or self absorbed. It’s just right.

Wow. What an awesome surprise. We went to the area for another restaurant, but they were closed for the day. We asked some passersby what's good in the area and they mentioned Dawson's.
