We've recently opened Lost Dog Cocktail Lounge next door to Lost Dog Cafe so guests can stay later and enjoy live music!

I recently visited The Lost Dog based on positive feedback from my son. My daughter was recently visiting from R.I. and I wanted to take her to a type of place similar to restaurants found in the Providence & Mass.area. The Lost Dog does this as they bring a NYC flair to the area. Good eclectic atmosphere -- Good drinks,... More

My wife, twenty something daughter and I made a spontaneous stop on a busy Friday night. We took a seat at the bar, cocktails and a nice selection of craft beers were available. Our table became available sooner than anticipated. Between the three of us pasta steak and salmon were ordered. The portions were notably generous. All of the entres... More

My wife and I were in Binghamton for the first time and consulted TripAdvisor for help on where to go for dinner. At the risk of becoming indecisive, we selected TripAdvisor's No. 1 listing and we weren't disappointed. The funky little bar/restaurant in downtown Binghamton was hopping on a Monday night with a mix of all ages. I ordered the... More

This is our favorite local restaurant. We love the fun, hip, ecclectic vibe of the decor & the creative menu options. I've never had a meal here that I did not love. They also make great drinks & their new lounge area is amazing with a fun city-vibe. The wait staff are all very friendly & appear to truly enjoy... More

Met our two college kids and their friends at this great place --- they staff was terrific -- very nice, accommodating our group of 6 which sat at the table for several hours on a Saturday night -- did not rush us out or make us feel we were taking the table for too long. Food was really good- we... More

Stayed at the Doubletree hotel across the street and was recommended by the desk staff. Had a great steak dish and draft IPA. Hit the spot after a busy day. Wait staff very courteous and professional,.,,,

We walked here from our nearby hotel. The connivence was a plus. This is a cool place with nice IPAs on tap, loved the flight snd were able to choose what to order next... My husband had a great burger with sweet potato fries...they are addictive. My Rigatoni with vodka sauce and added chicken was ok. Not impressive that I... More

The waitstaff is very helpful. The food selection is great and each meal I've had there has been good. They will help if you have special dietary needs. The atmosphere is pleasant, which often is not the case when dining alone. The wine selection could use an upgrade, but is acceptable compared to other places. It's a popular restaurant, so... More

Restaurant week in Binghamton where there is offered a three course menu for $20. I started with BAKED BRIE with fig tapenade & toasted walnuts followed by MAPLE BOURBON GLAZED TURKEY with local butternut squash purée & roasted brussel sprouts. The food was very good. All washed down with a drinkable glass of House chardonnay. I went solo and sat... More

I travel for my job and eat in bars and restaurants somewhere between 150-175 times a year and this place is refreshing. Bar is usually the more interesting place to sit. Good selection of drinks and attentive bar crew. Food was good, not outstanding but good. Will definitely return next time I'm in town. Nice Hilton Double Tree across the... More
