Visited for the first time, but surely not the last. Roast chicken dinner was so good, one of the best I've ever had. Staff was so nice and helpful with menu. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed.

I grabbed a quick lunch at the bar. I ordered the cheese steak empanadas. There were very tasty. I didn't have more time to explore the menu.

The dog theme is ok but the friendliness of the staff who helped explain the menu, and the food make this place a must visit, well cooked and staff that appear to want to be there, just what you want.

Nothing can quite satisfy a desire for happiness like man's best friend. This spot hit the desire square on the head with pictures of perky pooches wall to wall. The first floor was a bar stretching the length of the room equipped with great service and great variety. We immediately made friends with quite possibly the only other Ranger fan... More

Celebrated June birthdays with two co-workers on our way to the train home. Basic bar with booths on opposite wall. Basic bar menu with few options. My friends had the signature Good Dog burger, which they said tasted good. My grilled chicken on a pretzel roll did not make the grade. We each had 1 beverage with the meal, then... More

Crowded lots of noise and good food with friends and family. Fantastic day out in the city walking around the Walnut Street fair. Everyone had fun people watching and listening to the music till the rain came. We headed for the GOOD DOG and had lots of food and drink

Great tap list and really good and diverse menu. Was there during CBC when it was super crowded all over town, and the staff was excellent. A cross between beer bar, neighborhood bad and dive bar.

So, yes...this is a dive'ish bar but totally worth a visit. The food was good and the drinks tasty. If you are a dog lover, you'll dig the photos of the winners of the annual dog contest!

My husband and I came here before a concert at Wells Fargo and were not disappointed. The beer selection was huge and I appreciated the descriptions the menu had which definitely helped me choose what to drink. They have your classics too (Miller Lite etc.) but it's fun to try something new. They must rotate their stock often because they... More
