    Our Vizlas Had A Great Time!

    Very dog and people friendly patio restaurant on the Bay. Lots of fresh water and we ordered cheeseburgers. Live entertainment. Sand area. We will be back.

    Our pups loved it

    Many pet friendly tables on a covered deck on the water. Great spot, great service, and a wonderful prime rib pannini. We will be back!

    scenic bayside dining

    What an exceptional place to take in a sunset with your pup. Staff just loves having the dogs on their outside deck that overlooks the bay. Food and drinks were good, but the ambience and live music were simply wonderful!

    My dog Roxy had a great time

    They let Roxy and I sit any where on the deck and promptly got her water. I think every server and bartender came over the say hi to her! Nice shade for her too. Hung out for hours
