    Great experience for us and Rosie!

    Staff was super friendly and made the experience great. Provided water for our pup, showed her love and offered pup menu options. Rosie was well behaved and LOVED her grilled chicken. What a treat!

    Great lunch spot

    We went shopping at the Kittery Outlets and found this dog-friendly lunch spot. It is not in the busy outlet area, just about 2 miles away. Shaded outdoor tables, good food, and friendly staff excited to see our dog. Staff even brought water out for him.

    My wife my 70# Pitt mix and I love this place... suggest a couple of bench seats for their four legged customers!

    Great food, beer, and dog friendly patio!

    This place is s little treasure of kittery. I highly recommend it! Great food, service, and drinks! The open patio allows dogs and even provides buckets of water for pooches!

    Chill’n on the Patio

    This spot was certainly a nice pit stop along our route to central Maine. We found parking right away, and strolled up the road to give our pup a chance to stretch her legs before lunch. The patio was nice and shady, and a table was free near the entrance (easy access for when our pup began barking at another dog
    Passing on the street). As long as your pup is well behaved around other people, and can withstand those passing on the sidewalk, you won’t be disappointed.

    Good eats and fun for pup

    Ate outside on side patio. Waitress brought pup bowl of cold water. Two other families were there with their dogs too. Good food and great time!

    Very Dog Friendly

    Had a great experience with our dog on the patio. Staff brought him a big bucket of cold water, were very accommodating and so happy to have a dog there. The table next to us loved his company, as well (not that every restaurant-goer will feel that way.) Overall, we felt very welcomed in a dining situation that might otherwise make you feel like a bother or that your dog was an afterthought. Not here!

    Great Experience

    We've brought our dog here twice. We had the same server both times. She was excellent and the burgers were great! They brought our dog a big pale of water. There weren't other dogs either time.

    Took our young child and 2 dogs to try this place. Hostess admitted the burgers were best burgers around and then said except Fudruckers because we get our burgers from them. The outside patio was small and several people swearing. Definitely not a family place.
