    Good food & nice scenery

    Enjoyed our lunch here with our dog. My only complaint is that the dog had to stay on the floor. She is 5.8 lbs and used to sitting on our lap while we wait for our food.

    Nice dog-friendly patio with great food

    Our family stopped here while on vacation - 2 adults, 2 teens, and our dog. There is a dog-friendly patio with some shade available and individual water bowls provided, and they have a doggy menu. The service was good and the food was excellent - we ordered the Essex (lobster) flatbread pizza, chicken & cheese quesadilla, black & blue burger, and "bacon bits & cheese platter" for our dog (which came on a souvenir frisbee). And though we had to wait a bit for a table at lunchtime, there were several charming shops nearby to pass the time.

    Dog menu!

    Dogs are most welcome here. I'm sure if the city allowed more than 1 dog per table, do would Longboards. It's not fair to penalize the restaurant for following municipal policies. The human food is decent, but nothing special.

    we were going to have lunch here but saw they had a sign outside that said max dogs of 1 per table. we stepped off to the side to search for a different restaurant but one of they’re staf was screaming for us to leave as they have a one dog per table policy and that we should read. if they had a no bones they would have gotten it!

    The staff here rocks!

    We came here with our 11 year old 35 lb dog. Dogs are treated like special guests here, with their own menu. Our guy enjoyed the chicken, which we gave him in tiny bites while we had our lobster rolls. The staff really make this place special because of how attentive they are. Some passers by were spending a lot of time hanging around the dining tables and petting the dogs without asking. The hostess and waitesses did an awesome job deflecting these people very tactfully. We really appreciated that!

    Nice patio, and menus for dogs!

    Brought our husky here. They brought a bowl of water and they have a dog menu. Salem has a one dog per table policy.

    Good if you have 1 dog

    We were really looking forward to this place but sadly didn’t get to eat here. They have a 2 dog max policy, which we thought great, we have 2 dogs. BUT, the two dogs were not allowed to be at the same table. Our dogs are attached at the hip so there was no chance that would work. They wouldn’t even let them together at a table in a stroller. Unfortunately, we had to pass.

    Heated Patio

    The service was lovely, food was fine. The patio was a nice setting, even on a cool spring evening. We benefited from space heaters. We splurged on Lobster tots as an app and each had lobster rolls and chowder. They were filling but not outstanding. We each (2 adults, not the dog) had two drinks and the bill was just over $100. I’d recommend trying a sandwich or flatbread.

    2 Dog Limit

    Good restaurant to bring your dog to but they only allow 2 dogs at a time so the wait for a table was much longer than anticipated. They have plenty of outdoor seating so not sure why the limit is only 2 dogs.

    Great outdoor space

    Excellent space. Good human food plus a dog menu with three options and a water dish provided. Highly recommended!
