“The food was very tasty. I recommend the Texas style cheese steak sandwhich. The pico and queso definitely give the sandwich a kick! The beer is ice cold. The service wasn't the greatest. Our server didn't check back often or offer refills, we had to ask another server for refills. When we arrived they told us a 30 min wait, we didn't have to wait that long at all! Even though the service wasn't up to par, we will definitely come back.”

This place is set up much like your Chipotle/HotHead place, but the food offerings are all from India and cannot be more different! You can choose your spice level as well. For a treat - grab a Lassi. Mango is my absolute favorite. Seriously, anyone who loves flavor in their cuisine, do not pass on this place!”

“Parking is absolutely the worst. Had to park so far away because no spots open for a 5pm reservation. Not the restaurants fault but poor planning on the developer. The place is nice, clean, seating and overall ambiance top notch. Service was fantastic. Ordered shrimp cocktail. They were good but not properly chilled. Cocktail sauce could use a little tweaking. Steaks were outstanding. Tender and cooked to order. The crab legs were just OK. They were skimpy and were a little cool. I would highly recommend the Flemming potatoes. Deserts were fantastic. Price reflects service and quality. Was very satisfied and will return.”

Working with them was seamless, and you can tell that they are just all wonderful people. They are experts and complete professionals at what they do. They understood that it was an Indian wedding and crafted drinks and bottle cocktails that used ingredients that catered towards the culture. They go above and beyond from the start when you begin planning an event with them. Myself, my family and friends are grateful for our experience with them. It's a memory we will never forget.

“There is nothing "wrong" with the food here, but it seems to have an identity problem. It's a Thai place in a Japanese body. The miso soup, bento box lunch special and sushi is very Japanese, but then they throw in Pad Thai to make it Thai? But then there is also Lo mein on the menu - so Chinese too? It just seems to be confused. Maybe a better name would be East Asian Fusion? Which is absolutely fine, just not quite Thai specifically. Food was hot and plentiful, flavors were okay. The HOT is not very Hot at all so if I visit again I'll have to try the Thai Hot and see if it lives up to the the reputation.Service was prompt and polite, place was clean!

The highlight of my visit was undoubtedly the food. The cabbage rolls were a delightful surprise, perfectly seasoned and cooked to tender perfection. Accompanied by a side of corn and creamy mashed potatoes, each bite was a comforting nod to homestyle cooking.To wash down the hearty meal, I opted for a pour of Woodford Reserve neat. The bourbon's smooth, rich flavor with hints of vanilla and caramel was the perfect companion to the savory dishes. And for a refreshing finish, the Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald beer, with its robust and roasty character, provided a satisfying end to an exceptional dining experience.Buckhorn Tavern truly excels at delivering classic comfort food with a gourmet twist, all while making you feel like part of the family. A must-visit for anyone looking for a memorable meal in a cozy setting.”

“Paragon is not cheap (our bill and tip was about $100 per person), and I'm okay with that because they delivered an excellent dining experience. The food, cocktails, and service were all excellent. We enjoyed their escargot, oysters Rockefeller, the prime rib, and several steaks.”

“The food was terrific once we were able to get seated. We were supposed to have reservations. The tables were full instead. Make sure you go in plenty of time. They did get us all in and made it right. But it was extremely frustrating to almost be late and not be able to enjoy or dinner to the fullest.”

Cassano's Pizza King 430 Warren St, Dayton Pizza • $$
430 Warren St, Dayton

“For our family, Cassanos is more than just a pizza place; it’s a tradition. No matter when we came back to Dayton to visit family, our first stop was always Cassano’s. It’s been a staple in our family’s lives for as long as I can remember.Recently, we tried the new location on Brown Street in downtown Dayton, and it did not disappoint! The place is sparkling clean, with a modern vibe that still feels warm and inviting. The staff was absolutely fantastic – friendly, helpful, and genuinely enthusiastic about the food. But let’s talk about the real star of the show: the pizza! It was out of this world! The crust was perfectly crispy, the sauce had the perfect blend of tang and sweetness, and the toppings were fresh and flavorful. Every bite was pure comfort and satisfaction.Cassano’s Pizza is more than just a pizza joint; it’s a taste of home for our family. The new location on Brown Street is a fantastic addition, and I can’t wait to make more memories there with my loved ones. If you’re looking for delicious pizza, a welcoming atmosphere, and a touch of nostalgia, look no further than Cassano’s. You won’t be disappointed!”

Hook & Reel Cajun Seafood & Bar 2564 Miamisburg Centerville Rd, Dayton Seafood • $$
2564 Miamisburg Centerville Rd, Dayton

“Upon entry, the host, Danielle, is super sweet and will find you a table/booth that you want. Our server was more than attentive, checking on us several times, but not enough to become bothersome- my one drink had the perfect amount of liquor in it - like it knew I had a bad day, and it was there to make me feel ALL better. Now the food: I LOVE ❤️ that the menu tells you this is salty. Like HEY, this is gonna give you high blood pressure - it's worth it (like the crab bites), BUT they are highly seasoned ( ? ) it's all pretty good, but know this; the sauces are thicker than Cardi B, and the gloves are thin.”

Fuji Grill Hibachi & Sushi Buffet 8870 Kingsridge Dr, Dayton Japanese • $$
8870 Kingsridge Dr, Dayton

“For sure one of the better buffets we've visited, especially in the area! Fairly inexpensive, with LOTS of varieties and the best part of all IT WAS SO CLEAN! They had people constantly taking care of the buffet, food didn't look like it had been sitting all day. Fruit and salad bar looked nice and fresh!! The hibachi bar was WONDERFUL! The guys cooking the day we went made sure we enjoyed our plates. Definitely a good place to visit, and highly recommended ....the only downfall was trying to get our server to fill our drinks. I think it would really benefit them to have a self service drink station, however if you take your cups up to the front they will get it filled for you!!”

“Although the food was very tasty and we enjoyed it, the floor show that we received was lackluster compared to others around us. Our chef did not do anything engaging such as tricks with the food or asking if someone wanted to have some food catapulted into the air so that they could catch it with their open mouths. I was disappointed because I've been to this establishment before and thoroughly enjoyed that part of it. I know that you go for the food but the antics with the chef also keep you interested. However, we will return.”

Blue Crab Juicy Seafood & Bar 8901 Kingsridge Dr, Dayton Seafood • $$
8901 Kingsridge Dr, Dayton

“After we drove West in the morning, we drove around and ended up south of where we live and ate dinner at Blue Crab Juicy Seafood, located behind the Dayton Mall. Even though they were not busy, it took a while to be seated. A customer walked by us as we were waiting for someone to acknowledge us and said, "You are in for a long wait." We were eventually seated. The waitress, we didn't get her name, but she was getting married soon, was very nice. She kept stopping by to make sure everything was okay.You can order already created bags of seafood, or you can create your own. You can pay by 1/2 pound, by pound, or the already created bags are priced differently. We both created our own. We had the same thing, shrimp, snow crab legs (one bunch), potatoes, I had corn on the cob, and Mark did not. I also had a bit more spice with mine. Yes, I did wear my bib and the plastic gloves they gave us so I wouldn't get the old bay seasoning on my wedding rings. Mark did not wear the gloves. We did not like the cheese bread. The cheese was not melted at all. $6 for cheese bread, I didn't eat mine, and Mark only ate half of his. That was disappointing.Also, there was a man walking around, cleaning off tables and doing other things, had his earbuds in, and was talking on the phone the entire time.The atmosphere was nice, and since it is in the old Max and Erma's, there is a bit of it remaining, which I appreciate. We have been to a few of these type of restaurants and we like them.”
