My family had a truly wonderful meal here upon arriving in Williamsburg. First: the decor is just wonderful! All the dog-themed art, coupled with popcorn served in dog bowls on the tables and the bar's "sports" television tuned to the Westminster Dog show made this...More

This restaurant did not disappoint! The dog theme is very cute, but not cheesy or over done. The prices are reasonable and the food was DELICIOUS! Be sure to try the crab tortellini and the plantains. Don't miss out on this fabulous find.

Best food I've had in a while. And everyone in our family loved their meal. Salmon special - fantastic. Tomato salad - delicious. Skirt steak - wonderful. Wait staff hustled the whole time. Don't miss the opportunity to go! And go early to get in.

Scallops amazing, salad was super- Salmon on top was perfect. Kobe Beef Burger was great with fries that tasted like cooked in duck fat- perfect! Some decent wines, and full bar. Service was super friendly.

Fur-nished with doggy décor (artwork, figurines, ephemera, pillows) this place is loaded with canine charm. Much of it is for sale, and the prices are reasonable. If you are not a dog person, you will still enjoy the creative menu, friendly servers and bartenders, and...More
