I've dined here twice and have had a good meal both times (burger, fish sandwich). The food is what I'd consider average for this price point but nothing exceptional. The atmosphere is cute - shiplap walls, a large fireplace, lots of dog pics. Great location...More

Great nachos and burgers. The food is better than you expect it to be. Super down to Earth, nice people. The atmosphere is kinda scenester-ist. But it's not all bad. Wear a popped-collar pink Lacoste shirt, get the beer-cheese pretzels, and just embrace it.

The Stray Dog is always a go-to place in New Buffalo! The food is fresh and the atmosphere is upbeat. I like how there is always music playing in the background too!

Went there with my daughter's volleyball team and parents. They were great to accommodate the entire crew- 24 of us at adjoining tables. The food was good and they actually had a couple vegan options. The beer selections was great and lots of taps. I...More
