This was our first time at The Stray Dog, and all five of us enjoyed our dinners. We had fish tacos (tilapia), a burger, Chinese chicken salad, mahi-mahi tacos, and a fish sandwich. We also ordered a couple of apps - pot stickers and chips and cheese with chicken and salsa verde. Needless to say we were stuffed! The menu had a lot of good options, so it was hard to decide. Our server was knowledgeable, and the food came quickly. Super nice decor, and there is also a roof-top bar area limited to those over 21. We didn’t check it out, as we had a 16-year-old in our party. Nice location by the water, too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Stray Dog. Our server Pam was excellent, she was very personable and provided wonderful service. We loved sitting on the rooftop deck watching the sunset over the water. We Both enjoyed our meals, of fish tacos and quesadillas. The quesadilla was probably one of the best we have ever tasted. The atmosphere, the food, and especially the friendly service made this a wonderful dining experience.

We were in the area for a Notre Dame game and a friend had suggested if we had the time to take a short drive to New Buffalo and have a meal at the Stray Dog and we were glad we did. Very popular even as off season is setting in, there was a line waiting to get in as we arrived. It is a very big place with a huge bar and dining room and an equally large rooftop patio. Excellent local brews, a good menu and excellent food. We enjoyed or short visit for lunch and the service and conversation from our server Caitlyn G.
It is also a nice area to visit and expect that in season the place and the area are booming!!

We were in town just overnight, and chose the stray dog for dinner. Sat on the roof top deck, ordered from the appetizer menu - food was good. Service was ok. Would have like a little broader tap selection. Better than average, but not 'very good' ... i'd rate it a 3.5

After waiting for a table at the Hard Rock Cafe for almost three hours, one of our party called the Stray Dog and asked if we could please get some food even though they were closing soon. They waited for us to get there and the food was amazing. Much better than the mediocre fare at the Hard Rock. We will be back!
