I was happy they were able to accommodate my party of 7. Hostess were very nice, food was pretty good as well. The waitress seemed a bit overwhelm. She continuously forgot napkins, water refills and olives for the martini.

Good food and great service. The Dog is awesome and always hopping. Remembering it is a bar, the food is fantastic and the drinks plentiful.
