    Dog friendly, good pit stop during Riverwalk

    For humans: Good for a pit stop during the Riverwalk, decent enough for a drink, however the food is very mediocre - nothing to get excited about.

    For pets: There's a grass area that the dogs can go potty near the bar, and water will be provided if you ask.

    Seating: Lots of outdoor seating.

    Parking: Street metered parking.

    Find somewhere else

    It allows dogs but nothing can be said for the atmosphere. It’s terrible. No view of water. Tarp all the way around.

    Don't go for the food

    We went because of the glowing reviews. Neither the server or the bartender even acknowledged my dog. Thankfully I brought my own bowl and asked for a cup of water. We got calamari to start. It was obviously just warmed up from being cooked earlier. Bland and forgettable. The burgers were luke warm like they also had been reheated and not cooked fresh. The prices are inflated because of the water front location. If there wasn't at least a decent view it would have been a total wasted visit. I won't be going back.

    So Much Fun

    My husband and I enjoyed a nice evening by the water and our dog got to play with another dog. We all had a great time. We wished they would allow dogs on the eboats!

    Great atmosphere, but pricey

    Went here on a Sunday afternoon and the weather was gorgeous. We brought our pug and she really enjoyed it. Prices are a bit too high but the food wasn't bad. Bottled coronas are $6 each. Will go back again for sure with our fur babies.

    Greatest Bar Ever!

    We had a blast at this bar. The bartenders will get your dog a bowl of water and even some doggie treats! They serve great drinks and only hotdogs and chips for food. However, I did see people get pizza delivered there. I enjoyed drinking beer and watching the game while the pup enjoyed making new friends with the 8 feet of leash I allowed her. If you are in town and want a fun place to spend time with your dog, this is it! A must for beer/pet lovers!

    Best new bar downtown

    This is definately a cool place, not just to drink at during the week for happy hour, but it is pretty busy on the weekends too. Great place to relax waterside with your dog!
