After seeing the Barking Dog on a list of the best dog friendly restaurants, we decided to try the brunch with our four legged friend. After seeing how packed the outside part was, we knew it had to be good. We were also no where near the only people with a furry friend as the patio was crawling with fidos. The manager did a great job of expediting tables, moving around chairs and making new tables, and we were quickly seated.
We ordered the pitcher of red sangria as we perused the brunch menu. It is largely regular American brunch faire, from pancakes to steak and eggs. Our sangria was very good, nice and sweet and refreshing on a warm spring day. The chunks of apples and orange in it were also a nice touch.
I chose the steak and eggs while my wife had the Barking Dog special, 3 eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns. My steak was actually excellently cooked to perfection. The fries it came with were also incredible, I'm not sure if it was the oil or the potatoes, but something about them really stood out. The eggs were also good, and went well with the steak as expected. The biscuits both came with were good but dry, though the eggs helped with that. My wife's eggs and hashbrowns were good, but not outstanding, she described them as "average brunch food". The bacon was pretty good though (I may have stolen some when she wasn't looking). Our little Hershey wasn't left out while we ate as our waiter brought him water and a milk bone right after our food came. He also made some friends at the next table while we were distracted with the food.
Service was excellent. We were seated very quickly though the place was packed and our waiter, though covering all the outside tables, was constantly checking on us and our dog. He was super friendly and even chatted with us about our dog. I can see why several of the other patrons with dogs told us how much they loved the place and that they were regulars.
The prices were also fantastic for the locale.
We really liked the barking dog and Hershey loved it. I think we'll be back soon.
