We decided to go to the Beach Dog after reading many reviews. Another customer that was leaving after his meal told us it is worth the wait. We did wait about 30 minutes after we ordered before we got our food but we had no time constraints. We enjoyed the pictures on the wall, the TV on with dog movies to pass the time. Our family enjoyed the Louisiana Dog, Chicago Dog, Santa Fe Dog, the Dog with Horseradish. Wow ~ what a lunch, worth the wait, great portions. The family gives great customer service and would definitely would return when in the area.

This place was cute, coffee plentiful and delicious, food (once it came) very tasty. There are limited seats here, we got in just in time for last table, then watched them quote 30 minutes to several. May have just been an anomaly, but food took WAY too long to come out. Once it did, the meal, value and service were excellent. Would have marked this as "very good" if the wait for the food hadn't been so long. If you're in a hurry, this may not be the right place for you. That said, we'll be back, appreciated the level of service and care the wait staff/owners showed.

Sincerely, We Thank You for stopping by and dining at The Beach Dog Café ~ We
Appreciate your input and want to Apologize for the wait for food coming out
to you in a timely fashion.

That said~ We have experienced high volume business with
summer in full swing adding to extra wait times for food coming out. Please know it
is our intent for everyone to leave happy ~ The food prepared for everyone is made
to order and in order given ~ Some items ordered such as something that takes a little
longer to prepare can slow up our food coming out as well. Not necessarily your order,
but someone who might have ordered ahead of your order.

When there is heavy volume business it does slow food coming out also. We do our best
in the mean time to keep coffee cups full and Dog reading material to keep our customers
entertained. If one is on a schedule or time constraint ~ with heavy business happening
We agree ~ it may not work out for one whom may have a schedule in place.
We do Appreciate your taking the time to write a review ~ And for letting us know about
your dining experience with us ~ We do hope to see you again when you are our
way ~ Thank You and Sincerely The Beach Dog Family ~

With few breakfast options, my family of four ate breakfast here. Though my boys were very well behaved, there was obvious tension regarding children in this establishment. As you walk in, a sign states the expectation of children, the woman working was less than friendly to my boys and brought my middle schooler a preschool level book to read and my high schooler an early reader book. The food was good and the stuffed French toast was a hit, but my son was a bit disappointed that his pancakes didn't have fresh fruit, rather more of a pie filling. In all, it was a decent experience, though we will not be returning.

I wanted to take a moment out to Thank You for taking the time to write a Review on Trip
Advisor of your recent dining experience at our Café ~ I would like everyone to know that
during Heavy Summer Season along with a long waiting lists can make for a wait. All food
prepared from the kitchen is fresh and prepared to order making the wait time for food a little
longer than normal as well ~ In addition ~

We take Great Pride in the food we prepare and serve and do apologize
for the wait, Always. Items on our Menu such as Potato Pancakes are made to order, with
Freshly Grated Potatoes, diced onion, parsley, egg take time to prepare and add some
extra time on the grill. It is served with a spiced apple compote. Cook time on those do add
to time the food comes out to the table. It may also explain the reason for the extra added
wait time ~

Our Buttermilk Pancakes are garnished with Fresh Berries in season and Cream ~

We Welcome all Families traveling to our Café ~ We are a Family Run Café and Care
about everyone's experience. The Dog Books we hand out are for entertainment purposes
only and we hand them out to all tables whenever possible. There is nothing personal
meant by it I assure you ~ it is just what we do and have always done. If there
seemed to be any kind tension we apologize ~ This weekend was a high volume
business which is a good thing ~ Please know it is Always our goal to make sure
all food arrives to the table hot and that Everyone leaves happy ~ This includes your
Beautiful Family ~
We hope that you have a Wonderful rest of the summer ~ and
are Very sorry that we did not meet your expectations ~ Thank You for taking time out for
letting us know about your experience, We do Appreciate your input ~ Sincerely we mean that~ ~

We didn't actually get to eat here. My kid was starving and we stopped in to this place only to see a "CASH ONLY" sign, and no ATM without getting back in the car and driving. I'm not sure how many people actually carry cash anymore, and what business can't figure out Square?
