I had heard about Davison's Steaks for sometime from friends and colleagues. We went for our anniversary. Something different since we had never been before. My wife and I hadn't been out for dinner in a long time so we looked forward to it. I...will say that the prime rib was very good. They were very busy and I'm not sure why since we had a reservation? Makes me wonder if people could walk in and get a table? The prime rib that I ordered and the filet mignon that my wife ordered took a long time. Waitress kept saying they are cooking it now. They were overwhelmed and took along time to get to our order. My wife's filet mignon was burnt on the outside and not a lot of flavor. They don't use any spices on their steaks? Not sure why they do this? For $36 for a filet mignon my wife has had better. Truly disappointing for her and me. I will contact the restaurant to share our experience. Not so sure we will go there again?More

Everything about my visit was excellent! I had the BEST blackened salmon!!!! Appetizer artichoke dip and desert lava cake were both excellent! I left full but not stuffed! Our server Brooke was very attentive and caring, thank you. I would go back, for sure!!!!

A neighbor and I enjoyed lunch here. There is a lot of variety but the best thing is the salad bar. For dinner here, I love the filet mignon or the kabobs.

Recommended by other friends in Sanford for a good steak and it did not disappoint! Wonderful establishment. The owner was doing a bit of everything himself, which is super impressive to us. Caleb was an awesome server and bartender. We will be back soon!

I go to Davidson's from time to time to treat myself and Family to a simple but always top notch dinner. The menu is clean, steak, chicken and usually a fish. Biggest treat is the full beef is brought to the table and the customer...chooses the cut. Steak is always delicious. Nice salad bar with a special treat at the end if you like them; smoked oysters!More

The steak was good. The salad bar was good. The restaurant was full the night I was at DAVISON's with a group of 50 people. The banquet room was full with our group. The main resturant was full with other customers. DAVISON's did not have...enough wait staff that night in April of 2019. The service was very very slow. Our group was patient and unserstanding. Some tables in the main dining room became upset with the slow service. If DAVISON's had had 2 more wait staff that night everything would have been fine.More

On the road and needed a healthy option and found this delightful restaurant!. The food was great and the service even better. My tuna was grilled to perfection and the orange pineapple cake was outstanding! I am going back next week!

Food was delicious, service was excellent, wonderful ambiance and quiet with soft music! My husband and I had the mahi mahi with mango salsa and bang’n shrimp. Both absolutely mouth watering. Also have to mention the decadent yeast rolls! It is definitely a place we...will visit again!More

My cousin's surprise retirement dinner was held here. The ares was set up nicely for the number of folks attending. Atmosphere is nice with white tablecloths. We were warmly greeted upon arrival. What I like most is the grill in the center of the room,...which allows them to serve meats from the grill to your table! The salad bar has enough variety to make a tasty salad. But what I have to give them accolades for is their service. We had approximately 30 people in our party and we were all served at once! And we all received our food hot, not sitting under a light. Kudos to the staff who came from other stations to help serve!More

Nicest restaurant in Sanford. I always get the filet mignon and have never been disappointed. Great salad bar too.

I am not sure, but they do have a menu if you search davison's steak Sanford nc it goes over lunch and dinner items so you can have an idea of what they serve. Food is good no matter what you order.
