I discovered this restaurant by accident. I try new items every time I eat there. I have not had a bad meal. My husband loves their chili spaghetti.

I haven't been here in a while so daughter and I decided to take a visit again. Incredibly disappointed. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger - tasteless! My daughter didn't even finish her fries which is a first for her. I believe that the sandwiches have become way too overpriced. I would skip this place and head down towards the Dayton... More

We are long time fans of Doubleday's. They have a great selection of delicious soups. The salads are big and flavorful. The pizzas are always good with the Monster pizzas a cut above. The pot pie is delicious and huge so bring an appetite. Service has always been attentive. Gets very busy around noon so come earlier or be prepared... More

Only place better than the original Doubleday's in Centerville is the NEW Doubleday's in Springboro. Same excellent cooking, same extensive menu, same outstanding service, carry-out coming soon. Décor in Springboro is more up-to-date and the location is more convenient for me. Otherwsie hard to chose one over the other. Already been multiple times.

I ate here twice in one week so I decided to go out of my comfort zone on my second visit and try the Beer-battered fish sandwich. A soggy mess with no real taste even after I stripped the batter off it was mushy. It looks good on a plate - golden brown - but far from crispy or tasty!... More

This was our first visit from a friend's recommendation. Great visit and we will be back!! Hostess was friendly and quick. Erin was our server and did an outstanding job answering questions and making recommendations. We tried the pretzel poppers, split a tenderloin between the two of us and each had a cup of chicken chili. All great and large... More

We recently dined at Doubleday's for the first time. Friends had recommended it but we were anxious to try it out for ourselves since they are opening one in our town of Springboro. They have quite a varied menu to choose from, and our lunch - the fish sandwich which was the daily special - was outstanding! Can't wait for... More

I have gotten in the habit of visiting at least once a month. Wife really likes the house salad with Tilapia or Salmon on top! I have plenty of choices!

Love their barbecued ribs, meaty and juicy with a great flavor. Service is always outstanding and the food is served when ready, not when the service staff goes to pick it up.
