We stopped here for Sunday brunch on our way out of town after a long weekend in the area. This is an adorable stop with a delicious menu. We received excellent service from the mother-daughter team. The coffee (a local from the region) was delicious and I really enjoyed the smoked salmon plate. Everything was fresh and prepared with care.... More

We have been very upset about losing many of our favorite romantic dining spots over recent years, but finding the Brown Hound Bistro has made us feel much better again. Quaint, romantic, and amazing food, this is a unique place worth taking a visit to. The staff is great and helpful and there is a nice variety of unusual food... More

The portions are good size and filling. We sat outside on the deck, it was a beautiful day. So relaxing; just a perfect day. Staff wished my husband a happy birthday. We live... More

We decided to hold our wedding dinner at Brown Hound Bistro. From the moment we started communicating with Trish and the entire staff, things flowed effortlessly. We came up with a menu that served the various tastes in our family while also using in season fruits and vegetables and local wines. Throughout the entire process, we were given the chance... More

Brown Hound has always been a favorite of mine, the food is always incredibly fresh and full of flavor, but the staff went above and beyond for Mother's Day Brunch. My family is very difficult to please, with some members loving the unique items the Brown Hound is known for and other wanting the classic eggs and bacon. In order... More

I had driven past this place many times while traveling through the Naples Valley and said to myself I should check it out. Well I am so glad I finally did! My date and I enjoyed a very romantic table in a small nook near the front of the restaurant. The decor is pleasantly rustic with creative use of found... More

We were out for a drive one weekend when we passed the visitor. Remembering a recommendation from a friend we pulled in. Although they weren't opening for another 15 minutes they invited us in. We had a drink and ordered their beef Wellington and it immediately became our favorite restaurant. G

I'm tough to please, and I gave it a rating of 5 across the board. Food, ambiance, staff, all amazing. This was our first time there, and only second time out in 14 months since becoming parents of twins. I can't wait to bring clients of mine there! You have clients for life! Thank you so much for the quality... More

Although we have never been to the Brown Hound Bistro in South Bristol we have had experience with them operating the kitchen at Hunt Hollow Ski Club. We love the seafood bisque and blondies especially! We had a catered event, the Black & Blue Gala, last March and it was catered by Brown Hound. The meal was superb! Can not... More

Had New Year's Eve dinner (pre-fixe) at the Brown Hound. Had not dined there previously. It's small, but I requested the little alcove area which was nice, but cold and you sort of feel like you are in the prep area. Food was very good. Excellent butternut squash soup. I had mushroom risotto, my partner had quail. It's a very... More
