  • "Good food and service plus there is music on Saturday evenings."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I was quite suprised at the the service and food quality. choosing to eat at this restaurant use to be a no brainer. I had to send food back(it was burnt) and had to flag the waiter dowm several times(he was new )so I can cut him some slack still more effective training may be necessary. I will go back again(want to give them another chance) however; in the meantime will be recommending it with caution."

  • "I liked the live music. It was easy and not super crowded for a saturday night. The burger, sweet potato fries, and quesedilla we ordered were all pretty good but the pizza was inedible it was BBQ chicken and had a weird combination of BBQ and garlic that did not taste good."

  • "The beer was good. So was the food. This is a small place with good bar food and a fun scene. We had the pizza to start which was average. Main courses were much better and fairly priced. The only disappointing part was the reservation process. We had a 730 reservation on opentables. When we arrived they said our table was the one behind the guy playing loud music. Obviously no one was going to sit there all night. Thus we had to wait in line like people without reservations. Seemed like a bait and switch deal. That was no cool but we had some drinks to that was ok ..."

  • "We went to the Dogwood right as they were opening on a Saturday morning for brunch, so it was quiet. The staff though was friendly and attentive and the food we had was good. I would come back again."

  • "Hi. We frequent dogwood when we want an easy night out. Great burgers and fish and chips, with a good selection of beer. It's a popular spot in JP, and always busy -- make a reservation!"

  • "The Dogwood is always consistently great. The food is fabulous and also won't break the bank. It's a wonderful place to go for dinner as a couple or with the whole family. Highly recommended."

  • "My family - from my 23 year old brother to my 68 year old father - loved the guitar player that accompanied our pizza and beer last weekend. We plan to come back when he sings again."

  • "The food wasn't great but it was fine. The noise level was insane, altho they did turn down the amp a bit when we asked. Lots of servers and "right and left hands weren't coordinated." Felt a bit confusing and overwhelming, instead of relaxed."

  • "We had a large group on a Friday night (for a birthday) and service was just great. Went with traditional pub food and craft ale and was not disappointed. Live music also a treat."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Great first experience. While it's out of my way to go to, it's worth going out of the way for. I'll be back, and I'll be recommending The Dogwood to friends."

  • "This place looked more appealing in its photos on Open Table. It was odd and empty. Perhaps it's more fun at night. The food was OK, the service was OK, but we won't be going back. Sorry."

  • "We came here after a big event and made a reservation for 10. The place was awesome, the food was absolutely delicious ( had the lobster scramble), and the service was pretty prompt. We have been there twice so far and we will be going there often."
