I have eaten at Dominick's Cafe several times. They are famous for their square pizza. They have a nice menu and the food is always good. This is a nice bar tucked away on a quiet street.

We were told to sit anywhere . Our server was very miserable , probably because the place was empty . We ordered . The food... More

Purchased a ReferLocal Deal for Dominicks - we really got the short end of the stick on this one. Went on a Wednesday night - arrived at 6:30, just as the Smith Brothers duo began to play in the dining room. Apparently, they are the deck entertainment but as the weather was a bit chilly, the entertainment was brought inside... More

Garbage food, waitress was drunk and insane. Group of us sent our food back. Absolutely disgusting. Don't see this lasting much longer.

My wife and I have been going here for years and it seems that every time we go here it seems like the quality is declining. My wife ordered a steak medium well and it came out medium rare and it was sent back. When it came back it was done medium but my wife didn't want to send it... More

I considered buying a coupon for this restaurant on ReferLocal until I read the reviews. I don't appreciate having an 18% gratuity added to my bill for lousy service at a dinky neighborhood dive. I have never served instant potatoes in my home and I do not expect to be served such potatoes in a restaurant. I understand that their... More

Dominic's is a small place that has it's regulars. The food is decent. Service is a hit or miss. I don't think the pizza is the greatest. Steak is always cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes are definitely instant potatoes.

My wife decided Dominicks Cafe in Plains,PA would be a good choice for our valentine's day dinner since it is right down the street from our house and we have never gone there. Try something new she said. We might like it she said. The place is always packed she said. Well, we tried it and will never be back.... More

I like this little place tucked away from it all. It's like eating at my Aunt's house. The food is not great, but decent for the price. Really really nice staff and very attentive, which is a must with me. I know I'm going to get a decent meal without a hassel. You're in-you're out. NICE!
