Granted, we went on a Saturday night, but we got there at 8pm and still had a 45-55 minute wait for dining. The service was terrible, once we were finally seated. We were told they use "team service," which is just another way of saying you'll have at least 3 or 4 different people serving you throughout your meal. This translates to unfilled requests and disorganization. For example, I asked a specific allergy question about an appetizer, and never heard back from the first server. This resulted in a delay of even beginning to order. There were significant lags between each course, and about 10 minutes without a water refill.
The food itself was decent, and I suppose it was fairly priced, but still more than I typically look to spend on an evening out. I enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, and the baked potato soup. My husband had the vegetable pasta dish, and said it was good. The martini I ordered was beyond weak, however, and not at all worth the $7.50 I paid.
The decor was lovely, if you like elegant sports-bar as a style - dark finished woods, gas-light fixtures, etc. Ambiance overall was nice, but not worth it for the wait and terrible service.

Inside Dawson's is way too dark. The menu is very limited and the prices are very high. Some entrees have two sides and some entrees only have one side. Only half the entrees come with salad. I do have to admit the food is good.

Although their prices might be a little high, their food is really good. It's a casual nice atmosphere and as long as you time it right, you won't have a real long wait.

The food is good but the prices are high. Bring a flash light to read the menue cause it has very bad lighting. The people are friendly and the service is good.

I feel the food is moderate, not the best I have ever had and I think their prices are very high, not so reasonable. The dining area is extremely dark, not good to go to if you are an older individual.

I don't know about you, but I like to see what I am eatting. Black closed shades with a night light at your talble. If you like eatting in the dark, this is the place for you. Service was cool- every employee is your waiter. Didn't like the shoe string fries.

This place is wonderful. We try to eat there once a month and it's a good place to go, especially with kids. Their ribs are fall off the bone good. The prime rib is really really good. And their crab cakes, perfection. Sundays are kids eat free, which is usually when we try to go, but the wait can get long, so go early, before 5 or after 7. Highly recommend it.
