Excellent food. Recommend a reservation. Well worth the wait. It's like eating at a fine dining restaurant on a small scale (small area).

For more than 10 years, Diso's has served Top shelf food and beverage. Tonight I had the filet which is ordered by the ounce, 5oz minimum. I also recommend the Mr. Diso burger which I often get to go. They have a great selection of IPA beers as well as wines. Ask Mark to make you a Dirty Hendricks Martini,... More

We love this place! By day the building doesn't look like much but at dinner time the gates open and the parking gets packed. It is a small place so if you are coming for a special occasion call first. We love that the menu changes seasonally and the meatloaf is amazing! We have never, ever had a bad meal... More

Excellent food as good as anything you would get at a top notch restaurant in a big city. Such a hidden gem right here at home.

From the outside this small, rather unassuming building belies what a culinary treat awaits inside. This restaurant has a full bar with seating at the bar and several high top tables, as well as a very small, cozy dining room. The menu offers plenty of choices and price points. We had heard about their filet mignon, so that is what... More

This place is a hidden gem. Great food, all homemade. Potato skins were so good. Filet is ordered by the ounce. Would definitely dine there again soon.

Went to Diso's with friends and a great steak. You select the size of the cut that you desire and the doneness factor and after a short while the steak arrives exactly as you asked for it. Not close but perfect - what's not to like about that!

To drive by you would never expect what awaits you inside. Have been coming here the last 3 years and even celebrated our 25th anniversary here. Mark and his staff are great it's like fine dinning meets local pub. This is a must go to place to dine.

We stopped on our way through town and got carry out and, wow! Even in a take out container this food was amazing..they cared enough to give it presentation in a box. The steak was beautiful and done perfectly, the chicken breast was so flavorful, I loved every bite. I love the small, cozy bar and seating area. We will... More

This place has awesome food. Very unique dishes ranging from steak, pork, chicken and fish. It is a very small place but very quaint. There is a small dining room and a separate bar area.

Best meal I have had dining out in a long time. Great food. Small local 'hole in the wall' restaurant. The owner was our waiter.
