Service was poor and food not great. Prices to high for the quality delivered. Restaurant was not full and service and food quality explains it.

We recently ate here two times. The first time was good, the second time awful. The first visit we great service and great food. The second time, we did nothing but wait and the food was a disappointment. After the closure of Houlihan's, we were hoping to find a decent replacement...bummer :(

First time eating here. We went early so it was not very crowded, and nice and quiet. The service was good. The food is reasonably priced, portions nicely sized, and tasted very good. Will definitely be going back for another visit.

My Lady and I dinned at Dawson’s for dinner. We each ordered rib eye steak, loaded bake potato and Caesar Salad. The food photographs exceptionally well, the taste just wasn’t there. The steaks looked juicy but were dry even though they were medium rare. The potato was loaded, but with blanks. The salad was beautiful to look at … but... More

We went to Dawson's Restaurant & Bar while staying at the SpringHill a mile away and visiting Villanova. The service at Dawson's was great (though one server, not ours, was playing games on her iPad) and the food was good for the price.

I frequent this restaurant as the food is consistent and most of the staff have been there awhile and there are no surprises. The salmon is excellent, the salads are great, and my friends enjoy the pasta entrees. The wine list could be improved, but they make a great martini!

Consistent food, quieter than other local places so good for a business meeting. Wait staff has gotten to know us.

Our large family was staying up the hill at the Springhill Suites for a memorial service. It had been a difficult day when we a small sub-group found ourselves at Dawson's. We started in the bar (it's a small bar...) and originally were disappointed in the service. Then we met Dorothy. She was it - bartender, waitress, everything. Apparently a... More

Food was fine, service was slow. Was here on a Monday night at 6:30 and the place was empty. Menu seems more like a diner now and less like a nicer restaurant.
