The portions & prices were good and the service was great. The food was good but nothing overly memorable.

After visiting the Zoo, we stopped at Dillon's for lunch. We had a grilled chicken sandwich, grilled chicken club & bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. On a scale of 1-10, we all rated our meals a "10". The waitress, Joy, was great! She provided excellent customer service, was very friendly & had a great sense of humor. We had an... More

We are not big fans of the food here, but we love the sharks and the flamingos! It's overpriced and the food seems mediocre at best. The service is good, but I'm not sure the cooks understand what we'll done means when ordering a burger. I'd stay away from the blue cheese as it is a rancid taste. I suggest... More

Decent food even though everything was double price. I work at a fairly high price BBQ and this place was Double our prices. The food was subpar. Not what I expect for the premier restaurant of an attraction Park

We grabbed lunch after going through the zoo, (our favorite zoo) and it was fine. We were accidentally seated in the bar area, so this tainted our experience since it was quite noisy and un-kidlike. Food choices were standard; it would be nice if they offered a healthy selection rather than everything fried. A bit pricey; service was nice. This... More

We had the best dinner. Ribs that melt in your mouth good. Sauces were wonderful. Onion rings amazing. We will definitely be back.

Very nice location next to the animal park, really good BBQ. You have to try the fried mushrooms. Really good place to go with friends to relax and unwind.

I have been here several times. The onion rings for two bucks, you can't pass it up. I would steer clear of the burnt ends, they are are not to my taste. Go for the baby back ribs. Great family atmosphere. I love watching the sharks and sting rays. We chicken wings were great too.

Nice place. The bartender was nice and the drink prices are not bad. You might even run across a deal on Groupon. Make sure to check the location it is valid at first though. Have fun! :)

My fiance and I discovered Dillon's a few months ago. I had no idea what to expect, and we were absolutely blown away! I loved the shark & sting ray tank in the dining room, as well as the flamingos off the back patio. The food was great... I was so hungry I asked the waitress to bring me a... More
