I'm very impressed with Dinners by Dawn. I can't believe I've never heard of it but there was a long feed about it on Ames people and it was all positive. The food was delicious, the service superb, and there were lots of gluten free options, including s salted Carmel cheesecake! A new favorite place
I know Dawn and she makes some fabulous scones - but this is the first time I've stopped in for dinner. The chicken Broad Street Melt was delicious and my husband enjoyed the fish & chips. The staff was so friendly and the service was fast. Now I just need to get there for the breakfast buffet on the first Sunday of the month because it sounds awesome! Definitely stop in!
This place has probably best hospitality of any restaurant that I have ever been to (and I've been to my fiat share of restaurants doing door to door sales for the last 8 years). The prices are fair and the food is incredible, this place is a must stop.
This is a great little gem of an eating establishment! My wife and I ate there last week and we were blown away by the service and the food! Our waitress was possibly the friendliest and most accommodating food service worker I've ever had the pleasure of being served by. When our entrées came out, the cook (chef?) brought it to the table and he too was amazingly personable and cordial. The people working here really seem to take personal interest in the customer's satisfaction We ordered an appetizer of "Queso Cheese & Bacon Fries," it is a simple dish, but every component worked well, the fries were hot and crunchy on the outside and tender inside, the cheese was rich and creamy with just a touch of spiciness, and the bacon was crispy! For dinner ordered the "Southwestern Brisket" sandwich. In true barbecue fashion the sandwich becomes a real mess on the plate, but the combination of flavors was unreal. Sweet, a bit spicy, smokey, and savory. There are three sauce components in this sandwich (bbq, chipotle mayo, and house-slaw) so there was a risk of the sandwich being soggy and droopy, but the pretzel bun they chose held up to the challenge very well, and the fact that they toasted said bun added some really great texture to the sandwich. My wife ordered the "Bourbon Chicken" and having tried it, I have to tell you that the chicken is amazingly moist, the skin was rendered beautifully and the bourbon sauce was delicious. We both subbed out our sides for a small serving of their "Bistro Mac & Cheese" and were pleased with the flavor of the cheese sauce as well as the texture of the noodles (so many places overcook their mac & cheese noodles, but they were perfect at Dinners by Dawn) Finally, at the suggestion of our amazing waitress, we decided to try their house made Carrot Cake for desert. The carrot cake was moist and the cream cheese frosting was beyond reproach! If you haven't yet enjoyed a meal at Dinners by Dawn, you are really missing out. P.S. Their hours are a little different than most restaurants, so definitely check before driving up there!!!
Wow! I have not been disappointed here! Try the specialty hot dogs!
