“Dana's Grillroom”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Whether you sit at the bar or at a hightop in the bar area, the atmosphere is casual and friendly, the wait staff is pleasant and attentive and the food is consistently delicious. The portions are generous...chicken francaise can definitely be split...and soup or salad are included. Their three onion soup is delicious,,,just soup without all the melted gruyere on top, so not a French Onion Soup, which is a nice change and much lighter. Dana is in the kitchen, but also in the bar area checking on people's dinners, thanking people for coming in, and just generally being a gracious host. One thing that is very important to us is that the food is hot and at Dana's the food always comes out piping hot. The wait staff use a team approach so the food comes out when it's ready, not when the server has time to pick it up. I love the Shrimp and Lobster South Beach..delicious and light with Broccoli Rabe for just a little tart flavor. Dana changes the menu occasionally and they have specials as well that are very reasonably priced and delicious. We go frequently because it is local and we love the food...We call it our "CHEERS".

“A bit disappointed with the lack of attention.....”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We went to Dana's to sample their "special" per their website. I ordered the Oyster special which were supposed to be 1/2 price between 4 and 6 P.M., which it was when we got there. We just wanted an appetizer and a beer today! When the bartender/waitress brought our appetizers, she slipped our bill in a glass in front of us at the bar. Looking at the bill, I asked " so, normally your oysters are $4 apiece after "Happy Hour"? She wasn't aware they were. She checked with someone else and they replied " oh, that's not a special anymore"! Well, said I, How come it's on your website "Happy Hour includes a special $3 brewer's Draft, some wine choices and 1/2 price raw bar from 4 to 6?" "No-No, we took that off the menu a while ago!
Perhaps management should pay more attention? Shouldn't all their help know what the specials are and tell customers about them? Come to think about it, last month when we were there, nobody told us about the "specials" until after we had ordered... Training, Training, Training, Dana!

“Dinner at Dana's...”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I went to dinner with my daughter, her friend, and her friend's mom. We had steamers and Thai shrimp for an appetizer. Both were delicious and the service was pretty fast. We had a nice and patient waiter. The restaurant was crowded but not overwhelming. My daughter ordered the chicken alfredo, her friend ordered a Caesar salad with chicken, her mom ordered the iceberg wedge salad with chicken and I had an Angus bacon burger...yum! Everything came with a beautiful presentation as well as agreat taste. I have included pics of all the dishes. It was reasonably priced and worth every penny.

“Great appetizers good food”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Finally got to Dana's later in the day for apps. and to check out the restaurant. We had the Thai Shrimp, four U15 absolutely perfectly cooked with a few vege's and a Thai sauce that was fine. We also shared the brussel sprouts which were quickly deep fried and kinda crunchy on the outside, giving them a pleasant taste. W also shared delicious fried oysters.All in all the apps. were very good. Dana has obviously been in the business before. He was out at the bar area schmoozing his customers. Great guy and knows how to run a restaurant. Making sure his customers were taken care of is his goal. Good job, Dana.Prices are quite reasonable for the quality and portions we had tonight. Dana graciously chatted with us and then went into the kitchen and made us some "golf balls" an intriguing dessert of a melted chocolate and nuts inside a donut base with a side of whipped cream and melted fudgy-chocolate. Very good. Thanks, Dana, we'll be back! Try Dana's Grille, you won't be disappointed!
