Extremely varied menu that changes daily….You'll see/possibly meet all the downtown locals at lunch and all all the locals at dinner. Reasonable prices for quality local restaurant…. The ambiance is delightful, the food is great!

I stopped here after reading some reviews. It's got great ambiance and a cool, funky vibe inside. I didn't have to wait very long to be seated and service was quick and efficient. My pimento sandwich had great flavor and the side dish, while probably not something I would order again, was a good "step outside the box" for me.... More

My wife and I have always wondered about 2 Dog and have heard great things, so we finally went a few months back for a date night. The atmosphere was very nice and quaint. I thoroughly enjoyed how it was decorated, but the service, food, and value left a lot to be desired. We had heard such good things, so... More

I like to visit local places when I travel. This place was recommended and I tried it. Give it a try, good food, high quality and health conscious with cool atmosphere and good prices. I had a Spinach salad and pumpkin soup - both wonderful

Enjoyed a nice evening and meal at 2 Dog last weekend. Fun environment with interesting and creative use of an old home. Bit noisy but the place was alive. BBQ Shrimp were best in class. Pizza was made with fresh home made dough and other items all above average. Can't wait to return to 2 Dog next time we are... More

Traveled to Georgia to visit my son. We went to this restaurant for lunch because another restaurant on the Square only had a buffet at a fixed price. From the beginning, we were impressed with the friendly greeting, and were seated right away. Our waitress, Liz, who works the dinner schedule, was working lunch that day. Want a waitress with...

We ate there for my wife's birthday lunch. I had the chicken panini and Greek potatoes. My son got the turkey panini. It was a little thin for turkey (not much there) and he said the bread was a little too buttery. Looked good to me though. My wife ordered the chicken salad sandwich melt on gluten free toast. She...
