Birthday dinner

First time there and enjoyed it. Isn't really my style but still enjoyable. Food was great but the reservation was messed up and had to wait which was a little confusing. Atmosphere was interesting but made it unique. Will be back again the future.

One of two, (about to be three), White Dog Cafes in the Philadelphia area, this one has an "old inn" feel with a predominate theme of dogs. Both inside and outside dining are available and are nicely done. The menu offers a number of varied appetizers, salads, entrees, and deserts and a good wine list. I had the swordfish which... More

Our waiter was Michael and he was very polite and respectful. We sat on the patio which is beautiful. We listened to the specials and placed our order. We had a complementary chef starter which was cucumber with salmon roe and cream cheese with fresh tarragon. Great way to start the night off. I ordered a berry gin cocktail and... More

Excellent food in a very nice atmosphere. Very fresh and very well prepared so much so that I was wondering if this was a chef's restaurant, The sea food sampler and the pork chop were great and so was the polenta.

I'm a dog lover so this place was right on point with their decor. Especially loved the bathrooms! Not saying the food was bad - just not a lot of vegetarian options.

Visited during the week with another couple. The food was very good. Excellent flavor and presentation. We all had various cocktails which were also well done. My scallops were great but my favorite was probably the grilled corn. It's an expensive dinner out but memorable.

Consistently excellent in every way....engaging and cheerful atmosphere in an informal though upscale bar & dining area, especially enjoyable if you are a dog lover as the entire restaurant carries through the canine theme from walls covered in tastefully presented dog paintings & portraits to dog figurines, table decorations ,etc. As for the amazing food, this time out we enjoyed...

Brunch is always delicious! I got fantastic blueberry pancakes this time around. In the past I have also had a tasty omelet and berry French toast! Yum! I am never disappointed! I have been countless times for dinner too! They change their menu seasonally and everything is fresh and tasty. Even the classic cheeseburger is delicious!!!! It is always pretty... More
