Dawson’s is probably known most for the live bands that play nearly 5 days a week.  Sunday in particular is a treat  as you will likely hear the Tim Hall Band playing.  The Tim Hall Band plays a mixture of familiar rock and roll songs with a blues mixture.    The music is enjoyable and it won’t be long before you are dancing on the dance floor.

Looking for some good food while listening to live music?  It’s no surprise that the menu has just about anything you could want while listening to awesome music.
