My wife and I had a wonderful lunch here. The food was very good. The only thing I was not happy with was their license is not for liquor it's only for beer which I love but I also like an Absolute before my dinner.

Great place to enjoy a nice evening - great ambiance in a nice setting. Always nice during the winter by the fireplace or sitting outside during the spring and summer months. Fun place!

I would get beer/wine over liquor. Drinks are good but as others have mentioned, more expensive than average. I also found it to be louder than I was comfortable with. The california flatbread was good but had less brie than I would have hoped.

Four Dogs Tavern and the adjacent Marshallton Inn (not a hotel) are both eating establishments with identical menus. The Marshallton Inn also has an extensive wine list, where as Four Dogs Tavern does not but has a fantastic local and regional draft craft beer selection....More
