We stopped in for a beer in the afternoon. The bartender was a really friendly young woman. Wish I could remember her name. She gave us a couple samples of new craft beers. It was quiet but a nice stop. Wish we had made it in on a weekend night. Next time.

Dog friendly, casual and smoke free bar. Nice dark interior, friendly bar. Taylor was awesome and mixed us some specials including her combo of a habanero beer with cider and a fresh juice cocktail. Looked to have a great liquor selection and some solid craft beers. Definitely returning whenever we come back.

Cute place with fun games and good tunes. This is the place to be if you're into Golden Tee, life-sized jenga or connect 4.

We stopped by for "just one," but stayed for four. Our bartender, Taylor, was funny, personable, and extremely attentive. We will be back. Thanks Taylor, for a great Saturday afternoon.

The Dogstar is like the TV show "Cheers" where the bartenders know your name and are sort of like family. This is a place where you can go and chill, sing with the jukebox, or watch the game. You can challenge friends to giant jinga, life sized connect 4, or corn hole on the back patio. I meet new people... More

I miss the old local stoner bar that had great character, great beer, and great music! I'm here with cheesy 80's music playing from the jukebox and touristy decor! I miss my local hangout!

I spent a couple days in town on business and traveled through a few of the local bars trying to watch the Bills game before ending up in Dog star. Very casual, very friendly atmosphere. Being from New York, I wasn't prepared for some of the bars allowing smoking inside so this place was perfect for me. The bartender Taylor... More

Went 12/20/14. It is an expensive place for the atmosphere. Beer was pricey. I was surprised at the mediocre attitude of the staff. No table service at all.

Takes 30 minutes to get a drink? Horrible service from the bartenders. Won't be sending any business their way.
