Been living in Davidson County for over 50 years, and someone a couple from Lewisville suggested we meet at Dion's for dinner. WOW! Food was delicious, service was excellent, and prices were reasonable. We will absolutely return to this hidden jewel. Of course, Davidson County is dry, but you can bring your own bottle of wine, and they provide the... More

I had dinner tonight at Chef Dion Sprenkle's restaurant. The ambience leaves a little bit to be desired. The outside of the restaurant would not ordinarily entice me into coming in to eat. However, the food is well worth it. I had collard greens salad with an orange vinaigrette dressing and mango. It was out of this world! I had... More

In a most unlikely location, this is a top-notch, gourmet restaurant. Faced with being in a 'dry' county and miles from any metro area, this facility is wonderful enough to pull customers from miles around. We found an extensive menu offered by knowledgeable servers. Menu items run the gamut, from seafood to barbeque. The meatball and sausage it to die... More

We visited Dion's for a birthday dinner. The food was fantastic. It truly is a gem in a town that is not known for fine dining! This is way better than Bar-b-que!

We visited Dion's for the third time on a Saturday evening and they were finishing up with a private Graduation party, so the restaurant was a bit disheveled to say the least, and VERY loud for the first 30 minutes we were there. My spouse ordered catfish and while my flatbread shrimp pizza and our friend's crab cakes were good,... More

Food quality and presentation was great. Quite varied menu of interesting items and combinations; actually one of the most unique menus in the Triad area. Price is OK for the quality with entrees in the $17 - $22 except for the steaks that were slightly higher. Atmosphere is just OK, can't say it has ambiance. Service tonight was excellent for...

Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Serves things I thought I didn't like but prepared so well I love it. You can really tell the food is prepared and served with love and passion. Always a great experience, a new favorite!

We stumbled across this restaurant while on winery tours. Although the building is nothing fancy, the food is delicious, lovingly prepared, and different. So glad we found it.

Our family has been looking forward to eating here for years. We finally went. We had reviewed the menu online and our taste buds were ready for what we had chosen. Dion's served nothing that was listed on the internet, and it was far more expensive. Service was excellent. The food was so so, but did not live up to... More
