    Covered Patio

    On a rainy day, it is awesome to have a pup friendly place with a covered patio. Staff is super friendly and they bring water out for your pup without you having to ask for it. Unfortunately, the seating was mostly high tops so we were too far up to reach our pooch and we couldn’t seat her on the chairs for the same reason. Otherwise, seems like a really cool place to check out with or without Fido (nice bar/lounge area, pool tables), good food, great service!

    Awesome experience!

    The food was incredible! They were very accommodating with our three dogs. The hostess told us our dogs would have to be very we behaved because they can’t have dogs that bark a lot with all the other customers. However, the dogs were chill and so was the water the server brought for them to drink! Highly recommend!
