This restaurant is good for those who are watching their diet. Gluten-free and vegan dishes are available. The atmosphere has a New York City flair. Menu items are reasonably priced. It also has wonderful coffee selections.

I remember the original Lost Dog, and it's been reliably good for decades. Nice bar. Something on the menu for everyone. Good place to meet friends or bring family. Burgers, salads, etc, all consistently good over the years.

We picked this out since it was the number one place in Binghamton. It was a nice little place to have lunch. My sandwich was tasty, albeit a bit small. The service was good, and the prices were right. I had a hard time finding a place to park, but finally did find a place around the block.

We are here for a college visitation and staying at the Double Tree across the street. First of all place is very cool. Burger was amazing and the fries are excellent. Shrimp and pasta dish was delish my wife said. Great service and great food!

We arrived right at dinner time and expected a wait. They told us 45 min and it ended up being less than 30, which was wonderful. It is small inside but luckily we were able to wait outside since the weather was nice. Our server Kyle was very nice and the food came out quick. I had the voodoo sandwich... More

Without satellite navigation I think we would have missed this place, apart from unlit signage in the window you could pass this by as part of an old style office block. No pretensions outside but lovely and spacious inside. We just called in for a quick lunch as we were heading north on a six hour drive, but well worth... More

Prior to moving to New York City, this restaurant was my favorite and I would go once or twice a month. I absolutely love it, from the service to the food to just the setting of the restaurant. Very laid back feeling. I normally get the famous Rigatoni ala Vodka, and every single time I get it, it is stellar.... More
