We went for supper. We were seated and had our drink served in five minutes. Our waiter took are order and returned within ten minutes with are food. I have to say it was hot and very God. I had the four piece chicken and my friend had the liver and onions. Food was wonderfully

We had to try this place because the parking lot was always full when we drove past it. Once inside, we weren't really seated (the not very friendly gentleman at the desk said to seat ourselves). The place was crowded. The crowd was of the older generation and the after-church types. We happened to be there at lunch time. I... More

Great stop for lunch or breakfast....just be careful on Sundays breakfast lasts a little longer before they go to lunch. Chicken and dumplings to die for. Cant beat the food or the price. Always filled with locals.

9-19-16 Reddy feet really nailed this restaurant. I remember this was really a nice restaurant. My mother and father lived just a short distance away and often ate there. Crab cakes $12.95 were better today than ones that I had in St Michaels at twice the price. They aren't lump but have a good taste. I also had some crab... More

I've had breakfast lunch and dinner here a number of times. The food is always good. Chicken and dumplings are an Eastern Shore favorite. A good place to bring your family or if you are making a solo visit or bringing a date. The service is good.

Don't be fooled by the location or curb appeal, this place has great diner food at super prices. We have been there for breakfast three times while visiting our daughter who lives in Salisbury and have been pleased and impressed. Locals probably don't want the secret to get out. Where do you get a bottomless cup of coffee included in... More

People have been going to Dayton's for decades, and not without reason. It's one of the last of its kind, more of a diner than a restaurant. Previous reviewers are right in that it needs more attention to cleanliness, management friendliness, and upkeep. A deep cleaning and furniture repairs are definitely in order. The food is what one would traditionally... More

Went there after an event we attended. Had some fried chichen, it was served hot and was very good. Fries were ok, slaw was ok, had about 16 people and the service was good. Definitely would go back.
