Great Dog

I really love the feel of this place and the food is great and reasonably priced. If you get there around 5 or 5:30pm go to the second floor and try and get the booth in the windo. The hamburgers are great and I liked the frys, sweet and regular potato. Yum The Mac and Cheese and the wings... read more

Took my brother out to dinner....we managed to get the seat near the window on the second floor...great for sightseeing outside. Kristy was an amazing host!!! VERY attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Had to introduce my brother to the Good Dog Burger...he loved it!!. The Korean wings we had as an appetizer was awesome.

We were there on a Wednesday pre-theater. We informed our server of that fact right away, and service was speedy and attentive. I had a special drink based on rye, with Gosling's, pecan syrup and black walnut bitters that was unusual, very seasonal, and excellent. The house salad was also terrific, with a vanilla spice vinaigrette that was perfectly tossed... More

Background: While staying in the Rittenhouse Square area for several weeks, we heard that the Good Dog Bar makes great burgers. Being located a block from where we were staying, we gave it a go. Verdict: Go Dog Go! This is a real bar with excellent burgers. The place is plastered with dog photos throughout. There is even a pool... More

You can easily walk by this place or if you look in quickly you might keep going because it doesn't look like much on the inside. However I highly recommend you try it. The menu is actually pretty unique and they have a great beer selection. We got the truffle cheesesteak empanadas, the fish tacos and the good dog burger.... More

I was in town and really wanted a burger from a burger joint - not fast food and not in a hotel - I found that the Good Dog was right around the corner and wandered over. It had a very retro kind of feel - much like an old tap room from the 60's. It was really clean, and... More

Nothing fancy. Just a good place to have lunch or dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. Convenient to the Academy and arts venues on Broad.

This place is fantastic. It is decorated with photos of people's dogs and has a brilliant selection of beers. The food is really great - some of the best we ate in Philly. We had the buffalo shrimp - amazing! We also had the truffle mushroom crouquets - very yummy. I had the fish tacos with a side of kale.... More

Interesting menu. Had four and wanted to try a DDD place. We had the Mac and cheese - good, the cheesesteak empanadas - okay but need a better dipping sauce. The one that it came with was not good. We tasted it once and it was enough. The brisket grilled cheese okay. The jalapeño quesidillas were not fantastic. Would not... More
