“Great little market with amazing staff”

Dorothy Lane Market
Cuisines: American
Description: Dorothy Lane Market, a locally owned Dayton-area specialty food store, is a mecca for all things foodie. We're not just another grocery store, as each of our delectable departments beg to be experienced, one tasty morsel at a time. At each of our three locations, you'll be able to order food, whether you want it to-go, or you are looking to sit down and enjoy. We also offer a diverse Wine & Beer selection, always featuring new craft beer on tap, and a Coffee & Tea Bar. There's something for everyone, whether you want to enjoy a steak or piece of fresh seafood hot of the grill (just follow your nose to the Meat Dept. for Jack's Grill), a deli sandwich (served hot or cold), favorite deli salads, soups, sushi, Naples-Style Pizza (at our Centerville and Springboro locations), our amazing salad bar, or anything else our store has to offer. When you visit us at DLM-whether you are stopping in to shop or dine-we hope that you are delighted by the food experience and the passionate, knowledgeable people who make it. Visit us and experience DLM for yourself!

Went to this market while visiting Dayton. We were looking for a particular beer and could not find it. Alex the store manager went out of his way to try and find it. I really wish this market was here in our home town. They have a great selection of all types of food and goods for any taste.

We really enjoy shopping at DLM. Although products tend to be somewhat more expensive than at big-chain grocery stores, the items they carry are often unusual or gourmet items, and often local and/or artisanal products. Service is also wonderful here, and everyone is so friendly!

Dorothy Lane Market DLM is actually one of the most innovative grocery stores in the US. They were at the forefront of the Customer Loyalty Programs and also of scanning UPC barcodes. They cater to upscale clientele with their prepared foods and wonderful bakery. Try the Killer Brownies.

DLM has a small restaurant in the stores (3 locally in Dayton) where diners can order prepared "gourmet" meals for a reasonable price. It is not a full service restaurant hence only 3 stars..

Wonderful epichurean grocer with local flavor! Exceptional service! Local specialties that can't be found at any grocery.

This is the first grocery store we've been to that was also great for dining in. My wife had chicken and noodles, I had halibut and our friends got pizza. All of the meals were very good. There is a huge variety of food. If I lived in Dayton I'm sure this would be a regular stop. This is not a place to expect waiter service but the people at the grill, deli and front desk were extremely helpful. Like the halibut I ate, you can pick any meat, pork, chicken or seafood item and they'll grill it for you as you wait. Very interesting concept. I hope it catches on everywhere.
