    Will not be returning

    I would not classify this restaurant as dog "friendly". There are only 4 high tops and 4 booths where you can bring your dog. We have an 80lb Golden Retriever and they told us she had to remain under the table. Under the table, along with everyone's legs and the table base. The point of bringing your pets to dog friendly restaurants is for your dog to enjoy the experience not be shoved under a table. We did not stay for dinner.

    Not pet friendly

    went here for dinner with our two medium dogs who go to restaurants and are perfectly behaved. they k my have 4 high top tables for people with dogs to sit at that only has maybe 4 feet between the tables and the walls so only place for dog to lay down is next to the table, in the pathway. our server was super nice and tried to be accommodating, but then a manager came out and said the dogs were causing a danger in blocking a pathway. we told him this was the only place we were allowed to sit and if he could provide another area we’d be glad to move. Got our food and left. Won’t ever go there again. We’ve never had a problem before.

    Absolutely perfect for our pup!

    Highly recommend for dining with your pet! Sit anywhere outside downstairs (there’s lot of booths). . They are very accommodating . I don’t know a better place to bring my pup!

    Delicious food

    the coconut shrimp and ahi tuna tacos were delicious!! dogs allowed only on first floor and it’s first come first serve for the tables. our dog is small so they sat on the bench at the table with us but if your dog is big it may be hard to keep the dog out of the way of the server. def worth a shot cause the food is delicious

    No entry other then 2 seater area.

    They told us only service dogs except for a small outdoor area or some picnic tables. When she suggested the picnic tables her tone seemed to say it’s not a good idea... so we left.

    Good if not busy, suggest call ahead

    The first time we went sat on the outdoor patio table with our family of five and German Shepherd for lunch. The service was great, the food & drinks were yummy, and our pooch was served fresh water! BUT the 2nd time we went for dinner they were reserving the patio as a “waiting area” bc they were “busy” and only allowing service dogs elsewhere. Suggest call ahead given unpredictable “dog friendly” atmosphere.

    Great Eats!

    We were looking for a place for dinner that we could enjoy & bring the dog. This one was a short distance from the hotel so we decided to try it. We called ahead to confirm that we could bring the dog & were surprised to find a covered booth where dogs are welcome. This was our first time traveling with our fur baby, so we were not sure what to expect. The service was very good & the food was fresh & delicious. When asked for water for the dog, they provided a take out container & a full glass of water to put in it. We ordered the bang bang shrimp for an appetizer, which was awesome! They even let us order a plain burger for our girl. The only downside was at he end. My husband had let our girl eat off his fork at one point & a manager came out & told us that we should have requested a plastic fork for the dog. We apologized for not thinking about it, but felt he could have handled it differently. If he could had asked how everything had been before telling us to request a plastic fork we wouldn’t have felt as offended, but he was very unprofessional about it. Later the waitress came out & apologized for not offering a plastic fork. She was very nice & went out of her way for us. We told her it was not her fault, but now we all know. It was very strange though, as they brought out the burger on a regular plate & we specifically ordered it for the dog & they didn’t say anything about her eating it off the plate. Bottom line, the food & service were great, just ask for plastic for your furry friends.

    Great For Dogs

    OUr pit mix was welcomed there, he’s 70 lbs. our servers always bring water in a cup for him, and he gets his own plate with his burger. We have had to wait for a booth or high top to clear, but the picnic tables out front are comfortable. We love this place!

    Don't waste your time

    We drove around trying to find a pet friendly restaurants with our 5 month old dog. This one came up. Went there any they only have 4 table in one section that are pet allowed. No worth it because they.are first come first serve.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    I wasn’t expecting much, as most of the pictures and the menu I saw online showed mainly fried foods, which I’m not into. However, it is close to where we’re staying so we decided to give it a go our first night on vacation. I have to say the cocktails hit the spot and the fresh catch was very tasty, as was my husband’s steak sandwich, and the key lime pie was very good. I didn’t see any signs that indicated they were pet friendly and there were only 4 or so high top tables where our pup could sit with us, which is very limited in this very large restaurant, but it was enough for us and we were the only canine family there at that time. The waitress was quite nice, but they did not offer any water or bowl for our fur child. Not a big issue, as I brought my own, but I would say more pet tolerant than friendly.

    Room for small dogs only

    At the hightop tables by the bar. There's a large cordoned off area, covered, with picnic tables right there, but they don't allow dogs of food in it. Too bad.

    Excellent food but dog area not great for big dogs

    The clam chowder was awesome. The dog area is very cramped. My big dog could only fit in the walking area where the wait staff had to walk around and over him. All the employees were very attentive and gracious however and he was given water promptly.

    They LOVE doggies!!

    I was a little nervous about eating here after the reviews but their "doggie section" was enclosed and it was pouring down rain so we gave it a go, and I am so very happy we did! The chowder fries are amazing (Bisque fries even better), and the service was wonderful. Dylan our server even brought our pups water. The restaurant doesn't have a lot of variety but the food is good and their drinks are yummy! They do have limited seating so you may have to wait for a booth if you don't want the Bar high tops but it is worth the wait!

    Wait was worth it!

    Although outdoor seating is limited, we had a great time with our dog! Food was great and service was good even though it was packed! Only wish there was more pet friendly seating.

    Not Very Friendly (dog or human)

    We heard this place was dog friendly, and brought our small poodle mix with us. The wait staff seemed annoyed. We sat out on the porch area, and were hardly waited on. The food was also mediocre. We felt very unwelcome.

    Good experience for us

    We just wanted to get a drink after some time at the beach. This place has outdoor seating and allow dogs there. The waitress was very nice, brought water for our dog. The Bloody Marys were tasty. We had no food but based on what we had, it was a winner.

    Remove from list!

    The fact that this restaurant is on a "Dog Friendly" listing is a total joke! You are allowed 2-top seating in front of the bar/ to-go area of the resturant ...hostess was rude! WILL NEVER GO HERE AGAIN! Don't bother if you have a dog!
