Twice I have been there and ordered King Crab only to have the crab served without the claws. However, I have enjoyed the other food there and the wait staff has always been good. The Managers leave much to be desired.

I had one of the slowest restaurant experiences there, taking over a hour to just get water delivered to our table. Our order was delivered to our table after the table to next to us, never mind the fact we had been there for over a hour longer and had ordered first. When the order did arrive it was filled with mistakes and a waitress unkindly told us that asparagus was no longer available and won't be again ever. The mistakes that we didn't correct because we had waited for over an hour and half for food - my child got french fries instead of peas, my father in law received water instead of lemonade, my mother in law received a second bowl of soup instead of asparagus, my wife received no side after asparagus, my sister in law had a sirloin steak substituted for the prime rib, etc. You get the point? Nothing was right. No word from the manager, never showed his head after we asked for him. The food was good but the service absolutely lousy.

We made a reservation for 16 people to celebrate my Father's 96th birthday. We drove for 1 1/2 hours from Michigan to have a nice birthday dinner. It was on a Tuesday night, September 13, 2011 @ 6:00PM, which is prime rib night. To start with it took me 25 minutes to get a glass of water & a Bloody Mary. After waiting "2HOURS" we were told that they had run out of prime rib & bread. They offered us another steak instead. The walkin's were getting served & completing their meals while we were still waiting for food. This was a truely frustrating dining experience. The waitress was appoligetic. The manager was nowhere to be found. After the "2 HOURS" I went to the kitchen & found the waitresses crying & the manager hiding. I told the manager she needed to take the heat off of her waitresses, by facing the patrons & explaining the problem. She came to our table & immediately became loud & offensive to 16 elderly patrons there to celebrate a birthday. Her excuse was that she had to do it all. She also stated she had no idea that there was no prime rib or bread. As a manager, that is something you should be aware of. She said she was the only manager & she had no time to talk to us. Instead of trying to assist her waitresses & calming the patrons, she just had all kinds of excuses & a bad attitude. She just held up her hand to us & walked away. We never saw her again the rest of the night. The manager was very unprofessional. The waitress was the "ONLY" one who tried to help us enjoy the evening. You have a good waitress staff, but the manager needs to find another profession. Thank you...Donn Hicks - 6533 West Q Avenue - Kalamazoo, MI 49009...(269) 290-8811

Dandino's is one of my favorite places to eat. Food is good, service is good. And their $5.00 lunch is amazing. I get two grilled pork chops, a potato, salad, and drink for this price. I have to take one chop home. Love you guys!!

Went into the restaurant today to pick up some carry out. The entire time I was waiting for my food the person behind the counter was picking at her teeth with a tooth pick. The food was good but the service leaves something to be desired. I really hope that this person didn't handle any food while picking at her teeth!

I recently had dinner at Dandino's in goshen IN. We had six in our party. Our waitress was Shanna who was vigilante in her attentiveness to us. In fact she can actually deliver cocktails faster than I can drink them (No easy task). The menu offers seafood, pork, steak and of course chicken. We had appetizers including Oyster's Rockafeller. I had the 30 oz. ribeye with crab claws ($23.00) . My wife had Walleye. Our meals, in fact, everything on the table, was excellent. My mom who recently had a stroke is a little slow of speech. In the middle of a busy Friday our server had patience with her ordering. It was this final touch that inspired me to actually write this review. To the staff at Dandinos,...Cudos!

Very substandard service.
The server was not very friendly, her service was completely unsatisfactory.
I had to flag her down more then once when we needed refreshed cocktails. In fact, one of her regulars pointed out that I was trying to get her attention.
At the end, when we were ready for coffee & dessert, she whisked away our plates, one of which had over 1/3 of my steak left on it that I had intended to take to my dog. I couldn't get her attention quick enough before she threw it away. No big deal, just 1/3 of a $17 steak. (it was the special-normally it is $22). Anyway, The way I looked at it she threw away her tip. I have never done that, ever. But man, it was just beyond forgiveness. When we brought it up, she didn't even say she was sorry, try to compinsate, nothing!! After a few minutes of being ignored, she slid our bill onto the table without a word. She just wanted us to pay & leave. So we did, & wont go back.

The menu is one page (front/back) and there's good choices, just not a lot of them. Everything I've had there was really good, but a bit pricey. Good atmosphere.
