    Dog friendly patio

    We sat at both the bar and at a table on the patio with Nixon. Everyone loved him and they offered a water bowl. Great location with great food.

    Very dog friendly and we brought 2 Saints. we asked for a table away from everyone so that we could enjoy the great food and atmosphere. the hostesses and wait staff were awesome and very accommodating.
    Our waiter kept on filling the dog’s bowl with ice water .
    Not to mention the best swordfish and lobster rolls. A definite dog friendly restaurant
