Where have you been!

This was the first place in Lancaster we found that was really good. Each appetizer, entree, side, and desert was at worst just good if not great. My kids were licking the meat off the rack of ribs they polished off. No one stopped eating until they felt gorged. I even had a bite of ribs... read more

Being here for a business trip, I visited this restaurant for the first time with a colleague tonight, Monday evening. Arriving at 6pm, the place was already quite crowded, but entering the restaurant, we immediately got a place assigned. Although nice, it was a quite dark place however great atmosphere and ambiance. I did read on the site about happy... More

Good food, service not great. It seems "anyone" can help you if you need another drink, or anything else. Not the case! three different servers were asked to bring another beverage ... all "forgot" For the birthday they give an ice cream sundae which is nice .... and NO singing!!

My family frequents this restaurant at least once a month, especially on Sundays because kids eat free on Sundays. The food is very tasty, the service is timely and friendly. A manager usually comes out sometime during the visit to see how everything is going. They're very pleasant and every waiter will assist you even if they're not assigned to... More

Went here for our anniversary. The food was very good. The service was adequate. Although we did make a reservation for 7:30 pm we expected to be seated when we got there. However it seems that they don't understand what reserve means. We had to wait almost 20 more minutes before they seated us. The girl who waited on us... More

We haven't been here in a few years and then we went today. Apparently, this restaurant is under new management. And, it felt like 5 star dining. We ordered their chicken pasta bruschetta which was better than we remember and their bread was served hot. Kyle was our server and he was very attentive without being intrusive. And the ice...

It's immediately evident that this restaurant takes pride in everything they do the moment you enter the building. The food and service is fantastic! I've been to the restaurant several times....once the food was taking a little longer then normal, but we weren't in any rush. The manager came out and apologized and took the meal off of the bill....we... More

We have Been to JB Dawson's many times and have always had a great meal and excellent service. The atmosphere is pleasant and comfortable. Was not crazy about their steak as it was a little chewy but salads, fish and chicken dishes have always been fine. Will definitely return.

Overpriced for the "steakhouse". They charge for bread. Not worth the money, better off finding a local steak place then this chain
