Visited David's for lunch and was very impressed with the restaurant, the food and the view of Lake Erie from the dining room. An overall excellent experience. It was our first time and we will return again the next time we want to celebrate a special occasion. It is definitely worth the 2.5 hour drive from Newmarket.

Great staff we had to sit upstairs in the bar as it was full downstairs. The staff was friendly and the food was enjoyable. We were there for over two hours and the staff seemed okay with that. Date Nite is Tuesday and we had a choice of three entrees. Would go back again.

We decided to try David's for their Date Night. We had a table by the window with an awesome view of the sunset over Lake Erie. Steak was delicious, done just perfect and the service was wonderful. We will definitely go back again. A suggestion is reserve well in advance for their Date Night.

Overall nice atmosphere, good geography,food can vary in quality sometimes which I don't think should ever happen in a rated restaurant.

The food was truly delicious and the staff made the meal truly enjoyable. We stayed for more than 2 hours and not once did we have a feeling that we should leave. The food was cooked to perfection, the drinks were tasty even though some were non-alcoholic. Which allowed to enjoy the get together.

Friday evening we went to Davids. The facility itself is beautiful and our dining experience was wonderful. The first thing that made it wonderful was our server, Nicole. She was excellent in every way. Knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and professional. She returned after each course was served to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. The dinner itself was excellent. We, there... More

Booked the Tuesday Date night menu that friends had recommended. Waitress was excellent, soup was good. However for a restaurant that states their steaks are the best I was disappointed. They served us strip loins, and mine was 1/4 inch thick on one end and 3/4 inch on the other. Tough and sinewy. My wife asked for blue, and got... More

At the suggestion of a friend, my wife and I went to David's for dinner and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. My Top Sirloin was cooked perfect as was my wife's Veal Osso Buco.
