“Excellent Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

I had joined JB Dawson's email club and they emailed me a 20% off coupon, so I decided to try it out on a Monday night. I was greeted by a friendly hostess as I walked in the door. Since I was a business traveler out to an early dinner on my own, she was kind enough to offer me a paper to read, which I passed on, but it's the thought that counts. The waitress suggested their pulled pork platter, as it is from their fall off the bone ribs. The pulled pork was tender and the sauce was excellent. I two sides that come with the meal and I chose fries and the coleslaw, which were both tasty. They include a side of cornbread as well. The portion was so large, I had leftovers for the next night! Service was top notch.

“Past its prime”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

This used to be one of our go-to places in Langhorne. We've lived here for about 8 years, and we've gone to JB Dawson's about every other month during that time. As late as 2 years ago the service and food was always top notch. Yes, it was always crowded but the wait was worth it. Our last visit this fall reminded me just how far this place has gone downhill. It used to be a pretty fair value, but the prices are much higher than in the past. While the food hasn't changed much, the wait staff now ranges from mediocre to just plan poor. Wait time for food has gone way up. Now when we're thinking of a place to go at the last minute, JB Dawson isn't making our short list anymore.

“Good service, above average food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

One thing you can count on at Dawson's is the service. The team concept is very successful and allows the servers to be much more attentive to the customers needs. The food is good but not exceptional. Personal favorites are the potato soup, baby back ribs and creamed spinach.

“Good Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

We had the pleasure of dining here last week and it was wonderful with a very accommodating and attentive staff. Nice atmosphere. The food is delicious, good menu and fairly priced. The corn on the cob is excellent.

If you are in the area, this is a great spot to dine.
