Delicious food and good beer/hard cider variety.

The food is terrific and the atmosphere is noisy but very comfortable, as well. The service is not always prompt or overly friendly, but if you go there with that knowledge, you hopefully will not be disappointed!! :) They have some of the best soups in town and for beer and hard cider enthusiasts... read more

First restaurant I can ever remember being to that was only 21 and over. Even if the idea makes a lot of sense to me

Best tomato bisque and grilled cheese sandwiches, ever. Nia was great helping us decide what to order. Everything on the menu looked good. This is a definite do not miss. Save room for deserts, worth every single calorie. We so enjoyed eating on the patio.

Food is excellent, Service adequate. Cramped quarters, if you're looking for privacy this isn't the place. Lots of cool local art work for sale on the walls!!!

Every once in a while, if it's been too long since I've been to the Dash for lunch, I get a craving for their veggie-filled Pesto Soup, and I just have to go. Combined with one of their gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, it really is the perfect lunch. Also very good is their herbed chicken salad. They have a nice... More

I was in Fort Wayne doing family history research at the Allen County Public Library. I found Dash-In the first day and went back for lunch every day for a week. Service was fast. Food came out fast but was not fast food. For example, yesterday I had a nice homemade chicken and white bean soup, and the day before... More

Dash-In is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Visually seems that they are styling themselves as a trendy establishment in a retro fashion. Basis the crowd (and yes they were near full the night we were there), they seem designed for 20's & 30's age groups. Their decor is nice enough in a bar type motif, especially in the main... More

Decent enough downtown Ft. Wayne restaurant for basic food and a beer. But, there seems to be something lacking or missing. Is it trendy or just a place for basic eats? They have jumped on the craft beer craze and there are glimpses of attempts to provide unique eats. However, IMHO they have an opportunity to make this a real... More

We've had several less-than-great breakfast and a couple of dinners in the last six months that haven't been good. Most recently, my daughter and I decided to give it one more try and we're were really disappointed. The coffee was good, again, but the food was just not good. She always enjoys their grits, but they were cold, watery and... More

I thought the decor and atmosphere was nice and I liked the menu options. We were there for lunch and I had the "homemade" hummus plate which was good but not great. I had a vegetable soup in the side which was very good. My husband ordered a sandwich with kettle chips as his side. The chips were in no... More
