We ate dinner here recently based upon rave reviews. We have had chicken and waffles before, though the flavored butters and waffle options made this a bit unique. We tried a cutlet, wings and drumstick. All lacked flavor and were very dry, although not greasy....More

Heard so many good reviews from friends about Dame's so my husband and I decided to give it a try. I wasn't so sure about mixing chicken with a waffle. Who knew it could be absolutely ridiculously delicious?! I ordered the "A Quilted Buttercup" and...More

I find it very reasonable for the amount of food you get - you will not leave hungry - I want to say it is between $12-$15 per person for a meal.
