From the moment I walked in the door, I could tell this was going to be a great experience! All the staff was sincere and friendly, warmly welcoming me and taking care of me quickly. Even in the middle if the week, they were busy. For dinner, I enjoyed the Caesar's salad with what tastes like homemade dressing-it was outstanding!Daws ... read more

They seated our party of like 14 for lunch the other day. Some had to sit at a booth and others had to sit at a table. I wish I took pictures. The menu was great and well priced. I had a double cheese burger with fries and it was ok. What made me give a 5 star review was our waiter. The hostess got a sling for my infant's car seat, ... read more

Bartenders are always great here. Food is very good. Their calamari is the best I've had around here. A little on the pricey side but worth it. Hard to find parking but if you don't mind walking a little ways you can usually find something.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us & it did not disappoint! Joe was our server & he was AMAZING! We had a group of 8 with 4 teenagers & he was the perfect guy to wait on us! We completely scored with the great food & fun service! The kids loved Joe & so did we! The best meal of our entire week here in Indiana! Thanks Joe!

my waitress Joe really was a good influence on our environment, and he gave us good food and he excepted me bringing in my stale bread. he has glasses , he is a nice nice man.

The outside of the restaurant gave the impression it was more of a mom and pop type of restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it wasn't. The decor was casual, nothing too extravagant, the lighting was a little dim but it fit the mood of the atmosphere and the people in there. I didn't see dirty dishes on any table ... read more

Best spinach and artichoke dip we've ever had- no chain restaurant can compare. Generous portion meals. Clean tables and subtle decor. Six person booths available. Family owned (another location in B'burg). Highly recommend and we will be back soon.

Second time here and it lived up to the first experience. Must recommend the Black and blue sandwich it was piled high with meat and just the right amount of blue cheese. Plus let me congratulate on the over the top wait staff earned the tip.
John McNabb JR via - Oct 25, 2019
Highly recommended! This place can fill up quick, so plan ahead or make a reservation. It's worth it. I had the Dawson's Black and Blue. It's their signature sandwich!

Passing through on a road trip and stopped for lunch. One of the best decisions made during the trip. I had pretzel breadsticks and French onion soup. Both were fantastic. And the staff were over the top friendly!

Great drinks, great food, and a good waitstaff. I've tried most of their fish dishes and have always been blown away. Their portions are huge so come hungry.

This place is amazing. The prime rib is the absolute best. The Long islands are the absolute best. They get it right time after time. Service from Will and Ron is what you want when you go out. This place is a must when you're in Indy.

My only complaint was that we tried to sit outside, but someone was smoking. We moved inside. Service was great. I ordered the special, salmon diablo. It was very good and they were very generous with the green bean side. I subbed a baked potato. It was late in the evening, so I'm guessing it wasn't the freshest. Hubby enjoyed his te ... read more
