We went there earlier this month and was pretty pleased with our experience. We had a Groupon so the it was pretty affordable. We all had either the regular burger or the 50/50 burger. The regular burger was good but a bit over salted. The 50/50 burger is half pork half beef, and I thought was excellent. Of course being half pork was also very salty, but to be expected. The fries were very good as well. The service was acceptable, not excellent but not bad. The sign out front says under new management, so maybe they are on the up and up... Don't let the downers steer you away. Get a Groupon and give it a shot. Had a decent beer selection too, with a couple local Dayton Brews.
Seriously, How can this dump still be open.? I drive by and see cars and wonder what on Earth these people like about the place... I tried 3 different times to give it a try. It got worse each time (food, service, and value). Terrible, just terrible. Poorly ran, not clean, horrible service. Food is hit or miss..... Wish it could get negative or 0 stars. Very embarrassing to have brought people with me....
I haven't ever seen anything like this place! The prices were outrageous and the service was very unprofessional and non-efficient. We waited for over an hour for our food while we observed a heavyset, bald cook that looked sweaty, filthy apron and looked exhausted as he was leaning against the bar with his foot up. The sad thing is that they were not busy! The food was terrible considering the prices and the beer was way over priced. My husband wanted to send the food back but from the looks of the kitchen staff, I was afraid it would be spit in or god only knows what so we paid our bill and we left hungry. It seemed to me like all of their staff were in their own little world chit chatting and cracking up while we sat hungry. I will NEVER go there again needless to say!
The WORST place in Kettering to eat out. My husband and I came in and and waited 5 minutes to be seated (open tables available), and never greeted my anyone until we sat. Before ordering the boneless wings we asked about the flavors, our nice server said we could sample the flavor before order, after receiving the bill we noticed that cost us 1.38. Our food came an hour and half later. I ordered a wrap asking for no opinions or peppers and it came loaded with both. If this were to happen anywhere else I would have pulled off, but it add more of these then the meat. I sent my food back, and I clearly wasn't going to spend any more time there then we already had spent. An extremely rude server came to the table next to us. They had pulled a table over to the booth to extend for additional friends joining them, but when the server needed to have a conversation with the gentleman in the back of the booth, she leaned in brushing up against me and talked with him for several minutes. She did say to me " excuse me". I did not reply! She continued to try to figure out what his order was suppose to be, and placed her knee on my booth. She started to walk away and turned back around and said "your waitress is new sorry you had to send your food back". Our waitress had nothing to do with her behavior, or the cooks getting the food wrong. Our bill came and for 1 dinner 2 beers the bill was $23.44. Interesting that the bill at the bottom says "if split between two guests each pay 11.72. " Well they got everything wrong including the last thing handed to us. Because the bill was for 1 individual. Many of our friends and family live in Kettering, and we will share that this place is by far the lowest classless place to eat.
it sucks..the owners are drunks they should really consider cleaning the place up ? and stopping the cocaine deals in the bathrooms ? enter at your own risk ...a true mess ..i dont think bar rescue could help this place
will never go there again waited a hour & a half no food one beer place smelled of dirty grease,food on menu ,one waitress four other tables got up & left .Not even busy.Tables waiting for food that were there before us still hadn't been servered when we left.
Just came from there and will never return. The mild wings I ordered after I was told they were really good and not hot at all were so hot I could hardly eat. My male 6'8 cousin said the same thing about his wings. My husband's chicken sandwich was full of gristle and very small. A handful of fries came with the sandwich, You also pay extra for 4 celery and ranch. We received 5 mozzarella sticks for $ 5.99. We were charged soda tax besides sales tax on my husband's soda that was filled more with ice than soda. The beer prices were very high for a new establishment that should have been happy hour prices at 5:00 p.m. Again, we will not return.
Love this place. No drama. Just good customers. Love the staff.
After reading several positive reviews I chose Hawthorn for a birthday dinner prior to attending a nearby concert. I prefer to sample locally owned restaurants that offer a variety of entrees. Hawthorn met all of my criteria and more! A friend and I agreed that several menu offerings sounded tempting. After a few visits from our friendly and knowledgeable server, our decisions were made even more difficult. Our server mentioned a number of extra appetizer and entree options in addition to the generous menu choices. Our shared appetizer was a delicious chicken and cheese dish (a special). We each chose a beef offering from about 20 entree possibilities. Each entree was picture perfect and the beef was tender enough to cut with a fork. An outstanding California wine complemented our meal nicely. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. While there's nothing outstanding about the exterior or setting of Hawthorn Grill, every aspect of the interior experience could not have been more pleasing! On a 5 star scale, I award 5 stars!!!!
Tank's is not just about the best Bar and Grill in Dayton, it IS the best. There is not one thing on the menu that won't make your mouth water and they are adding new stuff all the time. The broasted chicken is to die for and they will cater as well. We get our chicken there for all our family gatherings. Prices can't be beat and it is tons of fun to ride the "Dragon Wagon" down to the Dayton Dragons games where you get dropped off and picked up at the front gate! It is a great family place and the breakfasts are second to none!!! LONG LIVE TANK"S!!
