“Dodge the Dodger”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We found the atmosphere and food to be mediocre. It appears to be a hangout for college students and liberal minded clientele. It does seem to be one of the downtown establishments that always has customers.

Thank you for your review. The Dodger has been serving downtown for 20 years. We strive to create a place where all types of people can meet, mingle, work or study.

“Awful, dont' waste your money and time here”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Went there to see the "Before I die wall" and decided to eat there. Wished I had read the reviews before but didn't get time. The food (burgers, vegetarian burgers, chicken) was awful, undercooked, below average and prices were not reasonable. Maybe ok for a coffee but nothing more as we decided to try another dinner place later that evening. Poor quality food and service so would not recommend.

“Bar/ night club disguised as cafe/ restaurant.”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Not the best. Great coffee, but food was just average, nothing special. Staff seemed a little high-strung and snotty. Atmosphere wasn't very comfortable. The restaurant part of the business is really just a front for a bar/ night club.

“Good food, college atmosphere”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Good meal, not particularly memorable, so no gaffes, just not in my top fifty meals of all time.
