Our first time at JB Dawson's and we had a great time. Loved their steaks, creamed spinach and Cole slaw. Highly recommend it to you.

Each and everytime we go to this wonderful restaurant, we are treated well, seated fast and served fast. Staff is friendly and professional at the same time and the food is delicious. Steaks are awesome and tender and sandwiches are full of meat and more meat. That is why we continue to be repeat customers.............

We had reservations and were seated at exactly the reserved time. The waitress was there quickly and our drinks were brought over quickly. The food was delicious and I would recommend the Pina colada cheesecake.

They never give me the bread when I go but other than that the portions are huge, cooked perfectly, displayed pleasingly, and delicious. Worth every penny.

Thanks for the wonderful review. In regards to the bread, I'm very sorry to hear about that. Not sure what time of the day you go, but if you go at lunch it is upon request up until 4pm. After that, they should be asking you. Please don't hesitate to let a manager know if this doesn't happen next time you come out. Thanks again for your support.

This restaurant is the best. The service is great, prices are reasonable and food is awesome. I love that you can ask anyone for something and don’t have to just ask your own waiter or waitress. Wish all restaurants would do this. I also love that they have great kids meals and kids eat free on Sunday. Great place for all ages.

This was my first time dining here. The food and service was great. I reviewed the menu prior to my visit. There were so many good choices. The one thing I knew for certain I wanted to try was the lobster bisque, and it did not disappoint. It was perfect! I will definitely be back. Bon Appetit!

The only big issue we experienced was even though we had a reservation and were on time(a few minutes early) we had to wait longer because our table was ready but a bunch of other guests were seated before us. Otherwise, our waitress was very friendly and the rest of the staff was helpful if we needed refills. The food was delicious and we were stuffed!

Thanks for the very nice review. We are very sorry about extra wait. It has been so difficult to navigate through the 50% capacity. We have never had to ask tables to leave in the 1st 21 years than we have in the last 12 months. We look forward to serving you again soon.

This place has the best lobster bisque in the world. Real lobster! Everything was fresh and masterfully prepared. My wife was not pleased with the Long Island Iced Tea (weak), but in my opinion, this place is a gem. A little pricey, but I say it's worth it for a romantic setting with extraordinary food.

I do not understand why it is so hard to get into this restaurant. I live two minutes from there and this was I think my fourth time there as I keep wanting to give it another chance. That being said my wife and I went on Monday night I got a filet mignon with crab and a sauce and my wife got ribs as they are noted for their ribs. She said her ribs were good but not as good as sweet Lucy’s barbecue. My meal came out cold and had to be sent back even though the restaurant was not crowded. It took about 10 minutes to make me another meal while my wife was eating hers. The waitress and manager came over and apologized but there was no offer of a free drink or desert. My 2nd meal was fine but I would not rush back even though we live only 2 minutes away.

As an update to this review I was contacted by the manager, Rachael Geary the day after this review posted. She apologized for the problems and requested that my wife and I return to the restaurant when available as her guest. We went on 02/26/21 as Rachael had made a reservation for us. Our waitress was also named Rachael and was exceptional. Rachael Geary came out to meet us and she was very gracious. We had a wonderful meal compliments of Ms. Geary. That being said we will be returning to this restaurant as it is obvious that the management cares about its customers and wants to make them happy. It is apparent that Rachael Geary is a credit to this organization.

Dennis, my name is Rachel Geary & I'm one of the managers here at J.B. Dawson's. I can tell you that the reason why it is so hard to get into our restaurant is because this is definitely not the norm when it comes to our food & service. We pride ourselves on great food & great service. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about this visit. If you would be so kind to call me at 215-702-8119 or send your contact information to jbdawsons@yahoo. Sincerely, Rachel

This was our second time for my wife and once again we were completely satisfied. I had the Chicken Florentine Pasta and my wife had the grilled salmon with Jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. We also had the cheesesteak egg rolls for an appetizer which were amazing. Make sure you get the twisted sauce (you can thank me later)

I like that our meals came with 2 sides and I got to substitute one of my sides for a salad.
Service was excellent. We asked to buy a loaf of bread to bring home and they didn't
charge us. It was our first time there and we will definitely be going back.

Sad that you have gone back to totally brown bread with maple flavored butter. There should be a choice. Nothing like a crispy, sour dough roll with butter😀

Thanks for the very kind review. We are sorry that you don't care for this current bread but we had so many people complain about us taking it away in the 1st place. I agree with you, I enjoyed the sourdough as well but the masses wanted the old bread back. Sorry. Sincerely, Pete DiCarlo. Director of Operations.

We were there this past Saturday night during the coronavirus and I was very impressed by how the employees are keeping everything clean . the young ladies at the front desk were disinfecting all pagers before handing them to us and there was another young lady who was solely responsible to cleaning all the tables and when I say cleaning she was wiping down every part of the table, the benches ,the salt and pepper shakers, the menus .. your name it she was wiping them down with a disinfectant. I felt very confident eating there !!!
