    Great Atmosphere And Service

    I carried my pup up to the bar, and walked her around the game area, and she got water immediately when we were seated at our table. Great spot for pups and for food and music! 💕

    Great outdoor restaurant/bar. The entire staff was super friendly and welcoming- brought ice water for our dog right away. Food is great! Live music every day.

    friendly place

    Good food and friendly service. It was pouring rain and we had the pooch with us. Luckily this place has great outdoor coverage and is dog friendly. We enjoyed lunch during the heavy rain.
