We have eaten at Dino's twice in the past month and both times the food was delicious and the service very good. On Valentine's the service was not rushed with the waitress grabbing the plates almost before we were finished as in some restaurants. We liked the relaxed atmosphere of the service. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the other foods were very good.

The price was very reasonable. We found Dino's to be very tastefully decorated and comfortable. It was much nicer than many restaurants where we have paid much more for our meal.

The waitress was very pleasant and eager to please.

We would definitely recommend Dino's to our friends.

We ordered from the Valentine Menu, believing that they would be prepared to serve us in a timely fashion. WOW, we were surprised.
It took 15 minutes to get our glasses of wine. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was a let down. Shrimp martini cocktail was good, the cocktail sauce was excellent.
The fillet (surf and turf), both of us ordered this medium, and it was served RARE. After returning both to the kitchen, they were brought back medium rare and they did not return the side dishes that came with our meal!! Twice baked potato and asparagus both DISAPPEARED in the kitchen. Nothing was mentioned to the waitress because this was all taking so long. The plates from the appetizers were still STACKED up 3 high on our table during the whole meal. The filet was supposed to be served topped with crabmeat (hence the surf), but one steak had ice cold crabmeat, the other had nothing!
We waited a very long time for dessert (still these were on the pre-made Valentine Menu) and when it arrived, THEN she asked if we would like coffee. Not wanting to wait until tomorrow, we opted for our check. THAT CAME FAST.
Creme' Brulee was good, but the serving was too small, the chocolate covered Strawberry (2) was good, but almost frozen. We still tipped the poor waitress because it appeared that she was responsible for serving the whole restaurant!
We took it all in stride and chose to laugh through most of it. The other tables, we did pity as we watched them suffer the same fate, only later in the evening.
We were glad we arrived 30 minutes early for our RESERVATION. When we arrived, they told us that someone had our table and they had been there for almost 4 hours, and that we were going to be seated in the VIP section. Maybe that was an inside joke.

I recently had a Sunday breakfast at Dinos, after having been recommended to them by two different individuals. When ordering orange juice, they explained that they were out. Then when asked whether I wanted white or wheat toast, our waitress explained that they were out of white bread. Overall, the food was a let down. I would expect a restaurant that has been advertising so much, to have food that is listed on their menu.

We were excited about going to Dino's to check it out for our rehearsal dinner, after reading and hearing so much good about it. This is definitely a joint for the older crowd (50+) The decor is what I would consider upscale shoney's. Vinyl booths throughout most of the the place.

The food, for a brunch, was average. Our server was nervous, possibly new, and forgot 1 or 2 items when asked for. No big deal. Our drinks ran out as well. Forgivable. I am a former restaurant guy with 10 years in the business...I know these things happen in even the best of restaurants.

What really did them in was that we were there scoping them out for a potential wedding rehearsal dinner. When we asked our server to get us a manager so that we could discuss the menu, she returned telling us that the manager was too busy to talk to us, because "she is in the computer" This was a Sunday, with a restaurant barely a quarter full, and she couldn't make the time to talk to us about potentially bringing in more business.

The waitress said she could answer any question for us, except the only one we had, which was if there was any flexibility to their standard banquet menu.

I made eye contact with the manager, twice, before she actually did come to the table. And, once she did, she was as unpleasant as could possibly be. While she tried to sell her menu as the best deal in town, she told us if we deviated from the set menu, there would be a facility charge and we would have to give her a guaranteed head count...which she would charge us regardless of, and not be able to fulfill if people above the head count showed up (even though we we'd be picking meals off their own menu). Also, the menu items prices would be increased.

I think the thing that got us the most was her unprofessional, unfriendly, downright confrontational attitude towards two people trying to give her business. And not only was she the manager, she was the owner. I don't think she could have done anything more to tell us she didn't want our business except to actually come out and say it.

Maybe the place is fine for a quick greasy spoon meal, but, I can guarantee she won't be getting any of my business again.

A really good family style set down restaurant with very good service. The menu varies from steak to seafood to hamburgers. They also have a good assortment of vegetables.

Dinos is a family restaurant that has decent steaks, seafood, and pasta. It is a very nice warm atmosphere inside. Service is very good. Prices are reasonable and affordable to take the whole family. Will go back again.
