“Great food and rooftop bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

Came on a Saturday night. Very busy. Grabbed a beer on the rooftop while waiting to be seated. Food was fantastic and the sunset over the marina was perfect. Must visit this restaurant!

“A must to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Was nice to finally visit once again, after they rebuilt because of the fire. If over 21, you can sit roof top.

“No better place for a bite to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

I've gotta say, I can't believe I haven't reported on this place before. I've been going here for at least 5 years. Every time it's the same great service, atmosphere and people! Joe, the Manager no Mayer how packed the place is ALAWAYS has time to say hi. The place was great before the fire but now is absolutely amazing! We've never had a bad meal there.....ever! Keep up the good work guys. For anyone passing thru new buffalo this is a must stop destination!

“Rooftop bar for ages 21+ ha ha ha kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Nice sunset views and good drinks without kids! Local brewery options. Quality liquor based mixed drinks. If you like Hendrik's Gin, try the Cucumber Cooler. Our waitress was very responsive at the right times. Shrimp is good. Homemade pizza is good. Décor is comfortable and has a nice design edge to it. Don't get me wrong, kids are great but sometimes you just want to get away after a long day at work. This will do the trick.

We have eaten downstairs where there is another bar. It's a great place for families too. So glad that business is going so well for these folks after rebuilding from the fire.

“Lively, good food and service. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

The Stray Dog is apparently the place to be in New Buffalo. Very busy all the time. It is big, loud and lively. Great place for dinner or drinks on the rooftop. The menu was nice and the food was great. The service was terrific.
