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! The baked potato was great. The broccoli was a bit on the crunchy side but I like it that way. Service was quick and wait staff was very attentive. I highly reco ... read more

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. They were good but I needed a sauce so I got the spicy ranch and it was the perfect touch! Great for dipping my fries in too! Loved that they had lots of outdoor seating and inside ... read more

Happy people. Good place to sit inside for an intimate dinner, or sit outside to browse while enjoying the surrounding atmosphere.

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. I had the mahi-mahi, my bro and his wife had the salmon as our main entrees.   We finished our cele ... read more

Visited this little hidden place on Race day a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised! We ordered the nachos and the quesadilla and both were surprisingly good! I love that the nachos has strips of chicken and fresh peppers and onions, almost like fajita nachos. The quesadilla was also hearty with fillings and very reasonab ... read more

Dawson on Main reminds you of a neighborhood all are welcome restaurant. We headed from the Far East Side to the Speedway area. We went based off of a review that was saw earlier in the week. What we didn't realize is the weekday and the weekend is two different menus. I had my taste buds on the Shrimp and Fries. I quickly learned th ... read more

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.

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.

Simply the best Pork Tenderloin Sandwich. There might be a few it's:equal but nowhere is it better. And I'm told that quality is upheld through-out Dawson's On Main's entire menu.

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!

I can not believe I have not reviewed this or it's sister location in Brownsburg (after multiple visits each).  The food is excellent, generally I am eating here for lunch during a business meeting and it works great for either a casual meal or a step up beyond casual.  This evening I had a chance to enjoy at a relaxed pace after wor ... read more

The BEST pork tenderloin in the city! We love Dawson's and it's amazing location in Speedway! They have a great menu with classic comfort food and several elevated dishes as well. My favorite is a cold beer, their wedge salad and their best of the best pork tenderloin sandwich!

The food was awesome. We had hamburgers and tenderloins. They were great. The onion rings and chef's veggies were tasty. We had little interaction with the staff because of the current situation, but they were very friendly. This was our very first visit but we will definitely be back.

It was cooked exactly as ordered ... read more
