A great neighborhood restaurant serving excellent burgers, and the best breaded tenderloin around! Friendly, attentive staff without being overbearing.  Fresh brewed unsweetened iced tea, yum. The menu has a wide variety of options including a couple of vegetarian-type dishes. The bar is perfect for watching sports and hang out with ... read more

We had a birthday celebration on a Sunday late afternoon. It was fantastic that they had a private room that they let us use for free (we requested a reservation the week before). Our waitress (Kacie) was attentive and easy to work with. The food...More ... read more

Service was somewhat slow, seemed to be a backup in the bar. Once our order was taken things seemed to move along much better. Food was very good.

I have had many filets and steaks, and my filet Sat. night was the best ever. Great cut of tender beef cooked to perfection, which for me is medium rare. My husband and his friend loved the half rack of ribs with three fried shrimp - the surf and turf. Calamari appetizer was a hit. You can't "grab a bite" here, as it's not speedy.

Dawson’s on Main has consistently great food, friendly service, and reasonable prices. Definitely a”must” for anyone trying out Speedway’s dining options!

Fantastic food, large portions, reasonable prices. My hub and I went both Friday and Saturday night this weekend. Every couple we take there loves it.

Great food with OUTSTANDING service! We ventured out of downtown Indy to find this gem in Speedway. I had a party of 8. We were seated promptly and our server made sure we never had an empty glass and the food was brought out in a very efficient manner.

Again, a successful meal at Dawsons. A couple of things that brought it down for me. The hostess was a tad rude and I felt like I was an interruption. The server was sweet and pretty attentive (it was super busy), but she didnt introduce herself and I forgot to ask. a teeny tiny hiccup. Again, as I said on social media. Dawsons is ... read more

Food is consistently good and you can get a reservation, I don't think any of the other restaurants in Speedway offer a reservation. Crowd typically slows after 8pm.

Excellent start to finish
Was here with a group. We started with a host of apps: pretzels, beef tips, quesadilla, dip, even a pizza - all very good. Waiter rec'd the ribeye steak for dinner and it was spot on. Cooked just as requested. Good service throughout evening.

The frisco melt was incredible. Definitely enjoyed my lunch at Dawson's.
O MA via - Mar 14, 2019
We are always pleased with the menu choices, food quality, variety of beverages, service, and prices consistently available at Dawson's. We only wish they had a location closer to us (in West Avon) so that we could patronize them more often.

Best waiter we've had in a while (it's been a week since I posted this, so the name is passing me). Really good food, delicious Mule cocktail, and the pretzels are awesome. Get the pub cheese -- you can always eat a salad tomorrow.

Nothing new or different about Dawson's, but what they do is done well. The food is good and menu solid - there is something for everyone. Calamari is great if you're a calamari person.

Everything was great except for the noise level on a Saturday evening. It was to the point we had difficulty hearing our table conversation.

This place is great. This is a small town American Bistro. Portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. They have a full bar and make a great cocktail.
