I have been to this restaurant on many occasions and recently the lights were out and the signs stated that "WE ARE CLOSED"..Truly a shame..It is my feelings that at some time in the near future, another restaurant will reopen that location, because its right of the turnpike and the neighboring offices will congregate , who-ever reopens.....

This had to be my 6th visit.... can't understand previous unhappy posts....never been disappointed...order the Monterey ranch salad...yummy....and the fries that came with my friend's burger were great...enough for three of us. Quiet for a Saturday afternoon but allowed us to spend the time laughing and catching up...wait staff terrific....not sure why or when these bad reviews take place...

Food was next to standard. Needed a refill of water....waited for a long time then when waitress FINALLY came into view she proceeded to go to the table next to mine and talk for 10 min. Walked to bar get my water..... Bar service was much better than dining room, but wouldn't return.

My wife and I just popped into Dawson's for a quick bite on our way home from a nearby event. The hostess was standing at the podium in an empty waiting room. "Two for dinner, please?" I asked. She alerted me, "There's a fifteen minute wait." "There IS?" I asked scanning the mostly empty dining room, "doesn't look like a... More

Dawson's is away from the hustle and bustle of the mall eateries, which is nice if you are looking for something a little more quiet and out of the way. As other reviews mentioned, the place looks like it is abandoned, but don't let that deter you! The food was pretty good, and the portions were generous. Everyone in my... More

I have visited this restaurant on numerous other occasions, never with any issues. However, yesterday left me with a stomachache, literally! I am very conscious of what I eat as far as wild caught fish or farm-raised fish. I asked the waitress if the salmon was wild caught or farm-raised and it rolled right off her tongue that it was...

We stopped in late and service was good. The food was tasty. Salads were quite large...even the side salad. Nice place.
