I think I've had all their different pastas and they are all great. Pot roast - awesome. Tortilla soup - awesome. Soup and Sandwiches - awesome. Don't be afraid to try anything and everything as it's always good.

I'd never been to Lazy Dog Café before, but had a gift card, so my girlfriend and I stopped by this location to have lunch. I was considering the spicy Moroccan chicken & couscous, but when the server told me it's the spiciest thing on the menu, I opted for the chicken poblano instead. The chicken poblano was attractively presented,... More

Since moving to Colorado we don't get to visit Lazy Dog as much as we used to. Prior to moving we could be found sitting at the bar enjoying a dinner or lunch. The bar tenders are the best and the drinks superb. The menu has many tasty specialties, favorites being their chili, tortilla soup and meatloaf. Basic fare, yes,... More

My two daughters and I stopped in for dinner at about 10:30 p.m. on Friday night. I ordered the low cal pasta w/chicken. It was tasty. One of my daughters ordered the French dip. It was very good. The fries were good too. My other daughter ordered the buffalo fried calamari. It was served over rice and was very flavorful.... More

Good happy hour with good food and and a small selection of craft beer. We have been here multiple times. They have a good happy hour food and drink menu. They are dog friendly as long as you sit in the patio.

They crisp some of the cheese on the outside of the quesadilla, and I know its an easy thing to make at home, but then they use a blackened chicken. OH YUMM!! Kind of a noisy place, service is good, although they messed up my order and my dinner companion finished his meal by the time I got mine, but... More

We were visiting with an old friend and the salads were very yummy. We were sitting there yakking for a long time and they never made us feel like we should leave, kept re-filling our drinks and made us feel welcome. Very clean, and everything was tasty. Also it is in a convenient location. Even though it's at the mall... More

I have a severe dairy allergy. Nothing here is pre-package food or sauces. It's all made here, so you know they know what is in the food. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere. Try Maggie Snake River Salad or the Warm Foccacia Chicken Sandwich. I've been told the Chicken Potpie is great too. I've never had a bad meal at Lazy Dog.

My family frequents Lazy Dog for lunch and some dinners. Personally, I'm a sucker for the Tomato Bisque Soup with Grilled Cheese Strips. BTW, this is the place to get a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I believe they use five or six types of cheeses on the sandwich, which is crazy good, in my opinion. Those two menu items alone keep... More
