First visit to this out-of-the-way tavern. I liked it immediately after walking in, a noticeably friendly feel to the place heightened by tasteful Christmas decorations. Both the wife and I went for the prime rib special, which came with two sides. The salad was disappointing, nothing but lettuce and a few dry croutons, but the bread was fresh and served with cinnamon butter. The prime rib was a little fattier than I would have liked, but well prepared and delicious. Service was on the slow side, and we thought the dinner a bit overpriced. That said, there are plenty of lower priced options we look forward to trying in the future.

Had a very nice visit solo while in town for a conference. Ate a sandwich and took two slices of cake and 24 cookies to go. Ate the cake myself, gave the cookies away to friends that attended my session at the conference. Prices were a bit higher than I expected, but the friendly ladies and the location made it well worth the visit. Seems like a favorite for locals, in a downtown area that has small unique shops that you won't find in a strip shopping center or mall.

We are committed to using only the best quality products available because we are foodies. We never use cheap or imitation products in our food preparation. 571 Grill chefs put a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a lot of pride into every entree. Sometimes we may take a little longer, but we want to make sure your order is perfect. And as always, we guarantee your satisfaction- 100%. Our signature items; well, just a few- Smoked Wings; slow smoked with 15 spices in the rub, simply amazing. Burgers, 1/2lbers on a brioche bun, real cheese (cheddar, smoked gouda, swiss) with Hand-Cut fries. Homemade and hand-cut chips. Mac & Cheese balls. Pizzas- locally canned sauce, jazzed up with spices, real cheese, and lots of toppings, cooked on seasoned stone plates. Our salads are hydroponically grown locally. And more...
We visited 571 Grill on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at 2:30. Even at that time this great restaurant was busy. We had shared wings, (They were outstanding!) Each had a salad (we recommend the house made Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing) and the 571 Haystack Burger....oh my. We live a hour away and are wondering how we can get up there more often. It eas well worth the drive.

Texas Roadhouse is a steak restaurant providing legendary food with legendary service. Texas Roadhouse specializes in hand-cut steaks, fresh-baked bread, fall-off-the-bone-ribs, and made-from-scratch sides. We also serve ice cold beer and legendary margaritas. Treat your family and friends to a night at Texas Roadhouse.
The Cactus Blossom appetizer ($5.99) was huge and pretty tasty. We ordered the Pulled Pork Dinner ($9.99) and the Chicken Critter Dinner ($10.99.) The pulled pork was nearly fat free and a good sized portion and the side veges were not over-cooked. There was plenty of deep fried chicken fingers, enough to take home. A tall Sam Adams Seasonal (Winter Duke) was $6.50. Rose was TOO attentive and was obviously trying to get us to move along faster than we were doing. The place is pretty noisy; I think the loud music makes everyone talk that much louder.

It is in the mall above and does not give a
Good pizza at a good price. The staff is always friendly and the food arrives quickly. I have not tasted a bad pizza from Spinoza’s.

Visited on a cold, rainy Saturday for lunch, place was very busy, but not packed. Wife ordered their chicken, I went for the cabbage roll. We both agreed the cole slaw and fresh breads were outstanding, but were diappointed at how small the baked potatoes were. Wife loved the chicken, not greasy or overcooked as is often the case at many restaurants. The cabbage roll was okay, very filling but a bit bland for my taste. Service was quite good, waitress was very friendly and food delivered much more quickly than we expected. We are seldom in the New Carlisle area, but would happily stop again if we are in the future.

The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!
Went two times in three days... once for brisket and once for ribs. Loved both but preferred the ribs if I went back (which I will next time I travel in). The green beans and bacon were fabulous and really enjoyed the corn pudding as well. Reasonably priced for bbq.

First Watch specializes in delicious creations freshly-prepared to order. Their fresh, award-winning Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch dishes are made using only the best ingredients without the use of heat lamps or deep fryers. The best part is their creative menu features traditional favorites like omelets, pancakes, salads and sandwiches.
I have been to First Watch many times for breakfast over the years and it is consistently a good choice. We went recently for breakfast with our grandson and had a nice outing. The environment is friendly and the staff are competent and helpful. I had the smoked salmon frittata, which was flavorful. My grandson had a children's meal of a waffle and fresh fruit. He ate the whole thing and enjoyed his chocolate milk as well. My husband had an omelet with toast and home fries, which he found filling and tasty. It is a little different then some breakfast places as it focuses on healthy choices, which we appreciate.

We have family in the Dayton/Fairborn area and we all enjoy eating at Yaffa Grill, either for lunch or dinner. The food is always excellent with very generous portions. The restaurant itself is spotlessly clean and the staff is very, very kind, particularly with small children in our group.

We are fans of La Columbiana Cuisine, and know that this restaurant will provide an authentic Columbian experience.
For those who enjoy a variety of Ethnic dining, we are aware that the Greater Dayton Metropolitan Area provides a plethora of venues.
Mom and Pop dining is usually a great choice, and we know how hard the owners strive to provide a great selection of Columbian dining.
We arrive and the cook explains that the server is “off sick.” In minutes David arrives to lend his commanding presence to the dining room, and there are numerous tasks to be completed.
Soon David has greeted and seated a full dining room, and the cooks are very busy.
As is her wont, my wife chooses the Columbian cake for her appetizer.
She dines on Bandeja Paisa, which is shredded pork, pork belly, sausage, eggs, pinto beans, white rice, plantains, arepita, and salad. She asks for a to go box as well.
I select the Chuzos –Pinches and am delighted.
We highly recommend La Columbiana Cuisine.
