                                          Emma was busy so we weren't able to let her know my steak was over cooked and we needed some items but she was very sweet and otherwise did a great job. Just wish the food runners made the effort to fix the issues early. Gave 5/5 because the potential was there and will still be back seeing as mistakes happen.

                                          Prime rib Manhattan was too salty. Oriental salad was beautiful and tasted great.

                                          Food was really good, as was the service. We would choose to not sit in bar area next time. But still enjoyed ourselves, look forward to coming back.

                                          Chicken in the Bayou Chicken Salad was a little rubbery. Long Islands were good. The smell of fish radiated throughout the bar area which made the ambiance a little less pleasant.

                                          We went for Valentines Day. They had a special Prime Rib for Valentines Day and I had it. My husband opted for the horseradish in crusted sirloin. Bothe were cooked the way we ordered them. They were tasty. We split one of the special Raspberry Truffles for dessert. It was good as well. They said they changed their name last Friday. It seemed to me that the menu was more reasonably priced. We will go back

                                          Overpriced food. My wife got the filet medallions, way too much gristle, and the sauce was nothing more than a canned brown gravy. I got the blue cheese burger, it was over cooked and very dry with barely any blue cheese. It was two dry patty’s with a minimal blue cheese crumble and nothing else. My dad got the blue cheese crusted top sirloin. It was over cooked and very tough. The ambiance was so dark, everything was dimly lit at best. All in all a very poor experience, and we will not be returning.

                                          I felt the food was good. Certainly not the greatest, but it was alright. My wife enjoyed hers a bit more than I did. We both got fish, potatoes and salad. I really liked the french fries. She enjoyed her fish a bit more than I did. She also got dessert and really enjoyed that as well. It was a bit out of the way for us and we probably will not be returning soon.

The cheesecake was great. But I would pass on the birthday brownie small brownie and it was hard. But we we will go back again.

                                          It took right at an hour to get our food. The dish that I ordered was about half the quantity of food that came with the order before the change of ownership. I can only typically eat 1/2 the amount of food that comes with an order. But if you are going to deliver less than half the quantity of food as usual then don’t charge me the same price. My husbands steak was less than 1/4 inch thick and way over cooked. Vegetables were overdone. Will be a long time before we return.

                                          Went with the family to celebrate my wife's birthday. Service was good, especially given the current climate where waitstaff are in short supply. The food was decent. Nothing to really brag about. Fries were mediocre. Beer on tap was great. Live music made conversation hard - odd for 7pm as I would expect it to begin later. Overall good but it might not be the best place for kids as mine were ambivalent about their entrées.

                                          Dawson's is usually a go to for us so when family came to town we made reservations. We were SO disappointed. The service was very slow and just poor. Most of food was cold. By the time the waitress came back we had eaten all that was hot and it was too late. I have never been so disappointed with this restaurant.

                                          This was a very nice bar/restaurant in Brownsburg. We are not the biggest fans of the Cunningham Group, so this was a great alternative for nice dining in Hendricks County. My only "negative" comment is that the strip mall where the restaurant is located is set off the main state route, so you really have to look for it. Parking was great though. The menu has plenty to choose from, and the bar was nice and big. The reviews I read before making a reservation were spot on. The service is very good, which is saying a lot right now.
