“Quick outdoor lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We like Sundog for lunch. We get the fish tacos and they are light and not over seasoned and they have basic sides of beans, and cheese. The food is prepared well, and the portions are nice size. The location is nice if you want to do any shopping, since many stores are in that same area. The tables are shaded and it wasn't too hot to eat outside. The server was friendly.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We went to Sun Dog Cafe on a Friday evening partly because of the happy hour food snacks only to learn that they were only served at the bar in which every stool was filled. Also, the stools are high and I have short legs with knee problems, so I could not have sat there anyway. We did not let this bother us, but went on and ordered drinks and we split an order of stuffed spinach and artichoke dip bread and the Chimichuri steak with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables on top of the potatoes. This food was excellent. I was glad that we hadn't ruined our appetites with the bar food so we could enjoy this meal more. We probably would have come back if we had had more time on St. John. I highly recommend the food at Sun Dog Cafe.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had the BBQ pulled pork pastry puff while we were shopping at Mongoose Junction. It was awesome! The food was well-priced and nicely served so you definitely felt like you got what you paid for. I hope you are serving the pastry puff when I return!

Food is always great-service is spotty, but food makes up for it! Great specials, great place to go for brunch!
