“Run down kitsche”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

The area is really getting run down and full of kitschy junk places and bars. Grandmas candy kitchen is still nice and they do have a fabulous little resale shop. I can't recall the name but it supports a local animal shelter. Give these two places a look, they are really the only two bright spots on this dismal little street.

“So sad...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It may be the time of year visiting but the dam businesses seem tired and sad. Dogpatch is still in it's glory but my dreams of skee ball, funny exhibits and touristy things have been replaced by bars, tattoos and crap. Alley Cat's has a nice patio and some very good pizza.

“Must see the fish below the dam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

A short drive to viewing area below the dam was well worth the time. To see the huge fish feeding around base of dam was awesome.
