Had an excellent lunch

Though this location is off the beaten path (not in the center of the city) we had an excellent lunch. The portions were generous and the quality was high. We arrived as their lunch hour was closing so the menu was somewhat limiting. We both had Turkey BLT sandwiches. The restaurant sits high... read more

Nice location and atmosphere but the place needs to hire a good chef. Menu is typical old fashioned steak house. No finesse. Too much salt and fat. With a good chef this place could be spectacular. If you are going to the bar for a drink or sitting outdoors to enjoy the summer evening then this is the place but... More

The atmosphere is old fashioned in a chic way and very comfortable. It was cold out and they had young men giving rides in carts from the parking lot to the restaurant which we thought was a nice touch. The food and service was wonderful. Our group had everything from the rib eye steak to fetticini alfredo and everything was... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Frankly, the youtube video by the owners and the online description left me unsure but I was unable to get a reservation at my first choice so I ended up at Dingus McGee's. Good thing. The place was packed and I parked fairly far away but a nice young employee picked me up... More

Having only been here once before about a year ago we decided to head up to Auburn and try it again. Excellent smoked prime rib, and my wife had a new York both prepared excellent. Prices are very reasonable and the service was good. We were pleasantly surprised with the car to door service provided and we will be returning... More

Sat at the bar for dinner and sports. Food was good, as always, except my order got slightly messed up. Brett the bar tender went out of his way to correct my order and then went above and beyond by "comping" our drinks! So nice to feel valued as a customer! Recommend sitting at the bar or outside at a... More

I went here with a friend and the entire experience was great. We sat out on the deck. The wait staff was attentive and knew the menu. We had the signature alligator appetizer and even though the sauce was a bit spicy, I liked it. I had the fish and chips platter, which was cooked perfectly. The chips are to... More

This is our third time here and I wasn't impressed although the service was good, the food was pretty average. We sit outside in the patio area. Dingus really needs to spruce up things out there. The wooden decks are in bad need of stripping and painting and a few nice plants would be a welcome sight. I really dislike... More

Hadn't been for a while, so decided to go for dinner. Had the prawns and they were excellent. Others had steak and said it was very good.

Had to comment after seeing DsueII's review. I was there with a group on Sunday also and found it to be a wonderful experience. It was actually very busy.... No food didn't come out at McDonald's speed... which we appreciate! We frequent Dingus often and are always very happy with the quality of the food. (service can be slow on... More
