Highly recommend making reservations and being prepared to wait. Food was delicious, staff was very friendly. Sadly we didn't know you could make reservations and waited 80 minutes for a table. We will be back as food and service were excellent.

Great first impression!
Went here for the first time tonight and our meals were fantastic. My wife had the chicken and I had the prime rib special. Both simply melted in our mouths. They are somewhat short on desert selection but that fact was simply not enough to...More ... read more

Pretty good food, great servers, served pretty quickly considering they were quite busy. Very broad menu, and pretty varied pricing. Quite affordable and I am sure you can find something to eat that you like. Definitely will go again...

It’s a pub / bar atmosphere. Out of our group of 12, everyone were happy with their meals. I had a beyond burger and it did not disappoint. The service was good and the food came relatively quick, so no complaint. Tough to give five...More ... read more

We had Dawson's on our list for a while, and we went for dinner after the IMS Lights! Tuesdays is their half price wine night, which our group definitely enjoyed! We shared a Malbec and a Cab Sauv between the six of us.

We didn't order appetizers, but a couple of us got the French Onion soup which was really, really good!

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.

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
