I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Wrap w/ tater tots
One colleague ordered the Chicken sandwich, which she raved about

Very good service. Delicous food. Great lunch spot.

My wife and I made our first visit to the Dogwood Tavern on a rainy Thursday night. The atmosphere is definitely tavern/pub with a large bar, some high tables adjacent to the bar, and tables with chairs and booths in an adjacent room.

We were warmly greeted by someone who seated us and our waitress appeared very promptly for drink orders. Everything seemed very organized and came off very well throughout the dinner on a fairly busy night. It was noisy but it is a pub and everyone seemed to be having a good time. All the plates we saw looked very good.

We each had a wedge salad with excellent dressing along with bacon cooked perfectly. My wife thought her chowder (ham and potato) was outstanding and I had the shrimp and grits which was very good. The portion was very ample. Our visit turned out to be a very nice evening although with some ambient noise. The service was prompt, friendly, and organized. We will be back again and will add it to our list of “places”.

I give it for our first visit. We ate in the covered back patio and watched Buffalo beat the Titans and the Redskins continue their losing streak. This was while enjoying brunch and lunch with the family. I think this could become a new favorite of mine when we visit the kids in FC.

On to the food, buffalo chicken wrap with TATER TOTS! We didn’t have the brunch buffet, but it sure looked good and a bargain to boot. Others in the group enjoyed the French Toast and huevos rancheros. My wife had never had a croque madame before and she thought it was just okay, though.

Alex D, our server, was excellent. He was on top of refills needed and was very attentive to our other needs. Food was delivered quickly, given how busy the restaurant was, and it was freshly prepared and hot. I love tater tots (Alex joked when I ordered them that I remembered elementary school - hey I’m excited to see them on so many menus), and they were crisp and hot. Hats off to the chefs.

The food and service here are always excellent. Their craft cocktails are amazing! Great place for some upscale pub grub. Half price raw bar on Tuesdays is a great deal. They have several different varities of oysters.
