Great Dinner...

Our first visit to Dalton...my husband and I had a great dinner and service was excellent! We had reservations for 6:30 and were seated right on time. Great menu selection and quite a few dinner specials. We always enjoy their garlic knots and dipping sauce that comes out to your table as soon as... read more

We were there for dinner last night. Yes, the food is good. However, the service is more than lacking. It seemed like one waiter served the entire dining room in between talking with two young women sitting at a table at the end of the bar by the kitchen. The drinks took forever to come, we asked more than once... More

Dalton's has very good food but they allow loud, probably over-indulging, trashy bar patrons to ruin the dining experience for other customers. This has happened to us more than once. Get a table or booth well away from the bar for a good dining experience.

The ambiance is charming and the servers make you feel right at home - whether dining at the bar or at a table. The food is out of this world - - - from the garlic knots to start - the Chilean Sea Bass, the Zuppa diPesce, the steaks - - - to the killer desserts - bread pudding is... More

I had the Sea Bass, others had the filet, and a seafood special. Desserts were also fantastic! This was truly our best Christmas holiday dinner in 30 years!! We... More

Dalton's has been in business for a number of years, and it is easy to get to for us. We visited recently, and we found it just as good now as it has been in the past. Service was excellent, food was great. i had blackened shrimp and my wife had veal marsala. Both dishes were very tasty and you... More

This place is my "go to." Great bar and staff that are always friendly. The specials are just that...always great. Short ribs are fantastic, salmon done perfect and a great bolognese. The Meatball salad is great as is the eggplant rollatini. I loved the Chilean sea bass with black rice as well as the seared tuna "asian" special that I... More

As a frequent visitor to Daltons as well as a big fan I was a bit surprised with latest visit. Great food & service; however, was charged full price for appetizers during happy hour and was told you need to 'ask' before you order if not in the bar area which is literally steps away. Must be a new policy... More
