It would be great if they took reservations but they don't. I love the cheese board. It is loaded. It's great if you are hanging at the bar. When weather permits there are fire pits outside. They have Happy Hour from 4 to 5.

You go to Four Dogs for the environment, not for the price of their food or service. Mind you, we went on a super busy night but for a bar/restaurant the prices seemed rather ridiculous. I will say though, the California flatbread was amazing!

Typically, this is the place where we end up after a long hike with our dogs. We sit outside for a beverage and grab something off the creative menu. The food has always been fantastic, and our pups appreciated the bowl of water and a...More
