    Great place

    Stopped her with our German Shepherd and there was plenty of room. They brought water for him before we got ours (we always carry our own bowl), which was great. We shared the fish and chips entree with a small salad which was plenty for two adults and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and our puppy got lots of love.

    Plenty of Space

    Outdoor patio can accommodate dogs any size. Don’t take reservations, so you have to wait during busy season. Nothing special for dogs like giving them water or staff interacting with them, but overall positive experience.

    Happy Place for Both Dogs and Their Owners!

    American style menu, good atmosphere and very dog friendly! They were happy to see Lexie and asked if she wanted something to drink even before we were. Just as Lexie thinks it should be!

    Great Outdoor Patio!

    This place welcomes dogs big and small to join their parents for lunch on the outdoor patio. The staff was friendly and the environment was family-like. It’s situated in Gardners Basin which has a short pier and plenty of grass to walk your door while you’re waiting for your table. The staff were friendly and attentive and the other patrons did not seem annoyed but the presence of dogs. The food was tasty and well priced too!

    Not sure what exact circumstances were on 3/14/19 but we always allow dogs to sit outside on our patio. Only Service animals are allowed IN the restaurant, per health department regulations.

    No Dogs Allowed

    We drove here because of bring fido but were informed No Dogs Allowed despite the outside tables.

    More than a year ago

    Called in mid-October to see if their patio would be open and surprisingly it was. Rachel was so kind on the phone and said the back bar wouldn't be open but that we could sit outside. We were greeted right away with a server who offered our pup water from a glass and eventually his own water bowl. Great food and drink specials and we all felt really taken care of. Thank you!!
