Dion's is the best restaurant in the triad! The seafood is the freshest you will get unless you are standing on the beach. Great burgers,steak and Italian!

I had such great expectations for Dion's Restaurant and was thrilled to have the opportunity to go using a Groupon deal. When I called to make a reservation, I was gently reminded that the Groupon deal was restricted to entrees and no specials. It is funny to me that the Groupon paperwork and Dion's own website recommends reservations because when... More

I say shockingly because you would never expect to find this quality of food in Welcome, NC. I grew up in this area..wonderful barbecue..but nothing else to brag about in the eat out category. My crab cakes were the best that I have ever eaten...and I have eaten at some of the best while traveling the globe. The service was... More

Everything cooked to perfection. I don't know why steaks are so hard to cook just right, but Dion's knows exactly how to do so! We will definitely be going back! Bonus appetizer was wonderful!

the food and service here was outstanding - even tried a few things I have never had...the only down side here was the atmosphere was a little - odd? The paint and color scheme is off - looks like they tried to make it look intimate and cozy just missed the mark....do recommend making reservations....and since this is a dry... More

Been living in Davidson County for over 50 years, and someone a couple from Lewisville suggested we meet at Dion's for dinner. WOW! Food was delicious, service was excellent, and prices were reasonable. We will absolutely return to this hidden jewel. Of course, Davidson County is dry, but you can bring your own bottle of wine, and they provide the... More

I had dinner tonight at Chef Dion Sprenkle's restaurant. The ambience leaves a little bit to be desired. The outside of the restaurant would not ordinarily entice me into coming in to eat. However, the food is well worth it. I had collard greens salad with an orange vinaigrette dressing and mango. It was out of this world! I had... More

In a most unlikely location, this is a top-notch, gourmet restaurant. Faced with being in a 'dry' county and miles from any metro area, this facility is wonderful enough to pull customers from miles around. We found an extensive menu offered by knowledgeable servers. Menu items run the gamut, from seafood to barbeque. The meatball and sausage it to die... More

We visited Dion's for a birthday dinner. The food was fantastic. It truly is a gem in a town that is not known for fine dining! This is way better than Bar-b-que!
