    We had an amazing visit with our dog! Awesome service, amazing food and atmosphere! 😊

    Lunch next to the lake with soothing fountain sounds was lovely. Even better was having my little wolf-girl Nymeria join us. She loved the setting, her own water bowl and snacks. Watching the ducks kept her busy and I was glad for the leash clamp on the table. A bonus was having the dog tables segregated into an area comfortable for animals and people alike. Definitely returning on a regular basis.

    Great place to bring our dog

    Food was great, nice setting outside by the water and ducks walking by to entertain our dog.

    Doggie Menu

    Now they have a doggie menu also. Buffy (my Rottie) was able to have her own dish of food along with " mom". It looked as good as mine. ????

    Best Dog-friendly setting!

    Buddy and I just enjoyed a relaxing lunch/treats today at Anthony's in La Mesa. Needed a dog friendly space to eat lunch and chill for a couple of hours before heading home and this was perfect! The surroundings were beautiful, the food delicious, and Buddy was very happy napping while mommy read her book. I'm looking for an excuse to go back!!!

    bow WOW

    Wow what a spot! Peaceful lake, comfortable swivel rockers, umbrella tables, beautiful landscaping and complete facilities Mr. Mutt, my rescue dog. Very busy, next time I will call and deserve a doggie dining table. Loved my Salmon Reuben and Mr. Mutt enjoyed his complimentary water bowl and treats.

    Bow WOW!

    Unbelievable setting on the small lake. This is no patio on a busy street or overlooking a parking lot! Great food for us and so welcoming for our dog Princess.
