Had a wonderful Valentine's dinner of prime rib great service. Would recommend eating here. I've never had a bad meal here We ate early so we missed the crowd which happens every night, luncheons are busy also.

One of my favorite places up go. Thursdays are 1/2 priced martinis and the bartender Big Ron is the best around.

I love Dawson's on Main! Service is always exceptional, food us amazing, cocktails are on point! Had a 7:30 reservation, was greeted and seated promptly. After ordering, we was informed they were out of baked potatoes, first time ever I was disappointed here! However, the potato cakes and mashed potatoes are equally amazing! Than ... read more

He good was delicious as always. Our server, Joe was great! Great service and never wanted for anything. It was as though Joe read our minds! We never felt rushed. Our group of 10 were all happy when we left.

Valentines Day, Special Menu. Would be nice to include their French Onion soup in the special menu appetizers and perhaps a comprehensive package with dessert included. We enjoyed our evening.

We always eat at the bar. Service always excellent and fast. Good drink specials and fair priced. Food is very good for the value. Servings are generous and fair priced.

I dont make it to speedway frequently but when I do I love to try some place new. I stopped in for some apps. 1 thing I love about all of speedway is the parking. There is free parking and so it definitely makes it nicer for people to try out new places. I had the French onion soup which was delicious and my friend had the nachos. Th ... read more

We really enjoyed ourselves and everyone was very pleased with the entrees they chose. Our waitress was great and responded quickly to any request we made. We were surprised that you didn't do anything special for birthdays.

Our party of six arrived on a Saturday evening with a reservation (highly recommended). We were seated promptly. Four of the six were dining at Dawson's for the first time. All six of us had different items from the menu and all of us gave rave reviews on the quality, quantity, and value of our meals. As a final point, Joe is an ... read more

Very nice place, One thing that is very bothersome is they advertise they are located in Indianapolis. When in fact they are located in Speedway, Indiana Speedway is its own town and community as many small towns in Indiana. People who have lived in Speedway their entire lives expect the businesses of the town to use the town name. S ... read more

It was a cold January night and everyone was going to the grocery store so we opted to go for an earlybird. The early birds are really a bargain. My wife had pork rib eye and I had fish and chips. Great idea.

Great food in a wonderful environment. Our waiter Joe was amazing and made the meal an event.
Drew Jones via google.com - Jan 28, 2019
We came in to Dawson’s looking for good food. What we found was good food and the most exceptional server I’ve ever encountered. Joe, (and be sure to ask for him if you go in), was flawless. He anticipated our needs before we did. We left our evening in his hands and he did not disappoint. I’ve never felt so comfortable at a restaura ... read more

If you're looking for some true Midwestern food, head to Dawson's. They have a great menu with all your Hoosier favorites. Sometimes the service can be less than average, but the atmosphere is cozy and it's within walking distance of the Speedway. Parking is easy to find, if it's not race weekend. They have a ton of desserts also, so ... read more

Saturday our little group took a break from setting up a dear friend’s Celebration of Life ceremony at Dawson’s on Main.

Everytime I've been to Dawson's it's been a 5 star experience! The service is outstanding and every dish I've had from the menu has been delicious. Recommend calling ahead for a reservation, especially on the weekend, but definitely worth it.
