Having lived in Broome County my entire existence,discussions of Binghamton can be negative in comparison to its Endicott-Johnson/IBM hayday. We often refer to it as Gloom County but in reality there is a lot to be found if you look for it. Lost Dog is one of those locations. You walk in to a Bohemian type vibe with upbeat staff... More

Don't get me wrong the food is good but the prices run a little high for the area. Atmosphere is very impressive but a bit noisy. Parking on street is hard to get but park in their marked stalls at Boscov's parking garage.

The cafe was crowded on a Saturday night in mid July, but my son and I were seated quickly, and the service was good throughout. Unfortunately the food was not as the menu described. I thought my Parmesan crusted chicken sandwich on French bread sounded delicious, but the chicken was dried out and the bread really so-so, not crusty at... More

Stopped here for dinner on our road trip. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was welcoming and enjoyable. I loved the decor, the music, the friendly staff, and we even bought a t-shirt to commemorate our trip. :) For dessert we ordered the "Good P.M.S.", which was incredible and totally worth it after our long drive up. Great place... More

My son and I were staying in town across the street. We went over for an early dinner and had a very good experience. The restaurant is larger than it appears from the outside. Great craft beer selections, a great, informed, server, and food which we both enjoyed. I had the "Cajun" Beans and Greens with some chicken added. Delicious!

Thank rt1150
