Lost Dog Cafe, now in its 18th year is locally owned and operated by Marie McKenna & Elizabeth Hughes. We feature fresh, innovated cuisine that is locally sourced when possible including grass-fed beef, and many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. Lost Dog Cafe is a 150 seat restaurant and has a full-bar and an extensive coffee, tea and dessert menu as well. We've recently opened Lost Dog Cocktail Lounge next door to Lost Dog Cafe so guests can stay later and enjoy live music! The Lounge is open until midnight on weekdays and 1 a.m. on Friday & Saturday evenings. We also do catering!

My family visited here recently on a Friday evening. The waiting/lounge area is fantastic and makes waiting a fun experience. Our waitress was upbeat and friendly. The kids menu is sufficient. Dishes ordered at the table were the Cheesesteak w/ macaroni & cheese, calamari, coconut shrimp & the hummus plate. Everything was delicious....especially the macaroni & cheese and the hummus!...

Got the grass fed burger and it was above average but not amazing. The fries were very good with a bit of a kick. It was just take out but seemed like it would be a cool place to hang out

Just meh. We got there at 6pm on a Saturday and the place was so packed that there was a 45 minute wait. My husband and I went to the back lounge to have a drink. We sat at a corner table where there was a jar of condoms behind him that said 'take what you need but don't waste... More

Not easy to get good food, atmosphere and service at one place, but Lost Dog does it. Don't expect to get your every day burger and french fries. It's a food lovers experience you won't regret.

We have eaten here multiple times and have been really pleased every time. There is a parking garage across the street for easy parking. They have a really cool drink special and the food is delicious!

I have been to the Lost dog many times over the years and while it has evolved quite nicely as a bar and a restaurant it there are better places for coffee, espresso, lattes,ect., namely La Vaggio Roasteria on main/court st. As far as its restaurant goes there menu is not very dynamic or contemporary, portions can be somewhat small,... More

The variety of choice is amazing, the food itself is incredible, and there are vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options! The ambiance is cool and the staff are super friendly. My favorite restaurant in Binghamton by far.

I could sit in this place for hours - enjoying the food and people watching. The shrimp chowder, salads, sandwiches and entrees are all exceptional - unique. Never disappoints (and even better if you leave room for dessert!)
