“Never again - "don't" Love Dog!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

My sisters and I had dinner at Love Dog on our last night on Lopez Island and we not just disappointed but angry. What we got was per-prepared microwaved food at gourmet prices. Also wine recommended by waiter as crisp and dry, the most expensive white wine on the menu, was as sweet as desert wine. When we said we didn't like it they would not take it back and so we had to pay for wine we did not drink. Will not go back next year.

“Good food, good service, good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

During a recent visit to Lopez we ate here twice; after a good lunch we decided to return for dinner and were not disappointed. Food was hot, tasty and well presented and the service was excellent both times. A question regarding an allergy was handled privately and graciously by the owner and not just dismissed as is sometimes the case. Thank you Love Dog.

“Sorry Love Dog this will be our first and last visit...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Love Dog was highly recommended by our innkeeper so we decided to give it a try; before we walked in the door fellow loungers at our inn warned us to keep expectations low. We ordered crab cakes and seafood fettuccini; both dishes were cold; not what I was expecting and I actually had send mine back (something I never do) and order a different menu item. We were really disappointed; for city prices on the menu Love Dog does not deliver for dinner. On a positive note the waitress was outstanding and incredibly nice!

Please open a sister restaurant near me! Delicious! View of weather! Outdoor seating! Healthy! Present with artistry! Very enjoyable after a long bike ride! Across the street from village bike rentals. A fantastic restaurant. Highly recommend,
