Good Food, Average Craft Beer

The food was really good and reasonably priced. I had the wok chicken with brown rice. It was really tasty and a good size lunch portion. I opted for the sampler of their beers. I only thought 2 of them had a decent flavor.

We like the food here a lot and love to look out on the patio to see all the dogs with their owners enjoying their own meal. The menu is really interesting and varied and every dish we've tried has been quite good. Only downside is the noise - it's one of those big open rooms so can get a... More

LD is consistently outstanding, for the price, quality and menu items. Fantastic lunch and dinner items when you want great, casual dining. Pasta, Asian, salads, burgers, BB Ribs and pizza/flatbreads are always excellent. Service is perfect and the bar serves premium liquor and wines. They have fabulous breakfast items, but perfectly limited. They also are a late night dining spot.... More

Very clever to have the door handle in the shape of a dog bone. the place was named because a lazy dog would just lie by the big fireplace, so it is fun to begin with. The food is good, they did a good job with our group celebrating a birthday. This place is very popular.

The food, beverages and service were great. Found the music to be too loud, guess that's a personal. Feel like it could be a warmer more cosey place, the fire pit outside was a real plus and quite a gathering point

We love our cute little cocker spaniel. She is a family member. We were so excited to lunch with her here in the patio section. All the dogs were great here. We got there early on a Saturday. By noon, there was a pretty good line to get seated. The restaurant is beautiful. The menu is extensive, reasonably priced and... More

This might be the best place to sit on the patio for happy hour when the weather is nice. Good food and drink deals. I usually get the chicken lettuce cups that are a good value and won't bust your diet. Shared a pitcher of Sangria once that was really tasty but very weak. If you are looking for refreshing...

Favorite part of going to the LDC is to get their Sangria sampler. It is cheap and very delicious. They also have the sampler for their specialty beers too. Nice way to have fun with pairing your meal with your drink. Get there early on a Friday or Saturday because they do not take reservations. Outdoor seating is nice...but just... More

This is a fun restaurant with great food! The menu has a great variety and I haven't had anything that wasn't very tasty. I love that they serve decaf passion iced tea!
