“This is such a great place to eat!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Fred was a dog! A guide dog for the blind! This restaurant is a dedication to Fred's good work, and to many other dogs! Wonderful idea! And also wonderful are the food, the service, and the great beers ... especially the Six Point Sweet Action or something like that. We stayed in New York 3 nights, and went here 2 nights out of 3 and then wished it had been all 3! Great!

“exactly what we were looking for”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

starving tourists... after a nine-hour day walking in central park all we wanted was to take a load off our feet and enjoy some good food fast - and fred's delivered. friendly conscientious staff, a fun canine atmosphere, delicious hearty burgers with fries and salad (tasty dressing BTW)... their motto of 'come. sit. stay.' suits the place well and we would definately dine here again. special shout-out to creed, the manager on hand last sunday night: "thanks for letting us linger on your wifi, no chicken bones yet but no behavioural changes either... so far so good. will send a pic of our appenzeller pup (look that up!) to add to your wall."

“Try the chicken parm”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Stopped in for a nice NYC style dinner and glad we found this place. The decor inside is fun, dog themed for the most part, read the back story on the restaurant owners and their dedication to the seeing eye dog group they are passionate about. The take out menu offers the story. I had a chicken ceasar salad, very large, crisp romaine, fresh grilled chicken and not too heavily dressed with fresh grated cheese and ground pepper. My boyfriend had the chicken parm, which I still regret not ordering. The mozzerella on top of the breaded chicken was so good. The pasta was perfect and the house sauce was complimentary to the dish. Can't wait to visit again, I will have that chicken parm!

“great new york steak”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Ate here last week when we were visiting the big apple. We were drawn here by the crowds and outdoor seating. I ordered a very tasty mojito and deliciously seasoned new york steak. Yum! Peaked into the inside and it looked like a great cozy place to come to when the weather turns cold. Would recommend!

“Sweet place”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

What a great find! The interior was so quirky and the staff friendly, with a wide range of choices to pick on the menu there was something for everybody. A very busy place which did ruin are evening slightly as our drinks were forgotten, however due to this the waitress very kindly offered a free drink for all. If in the area do pop in as the atmosphere is warm and the dog pictures covering literally all the walls are very cute! 4 stars.
