Awesome! The have the CDC guidelines figured out for social distancing.
We ate outside. Server was excellent! They are all wearing masks, tables are the required distance apart, touch less payments. Food was excellent and they accommodate dietary restrictions.
consistently good food. Fun bartenders. We love this place
Great variety...pizza outstanding. Awesome desserts.
We had a great meal at the outdoor seating area located at Summit Park. Fun place to have good food and people watch. We had a service dog in training and they brought us a water bowl.
Crummy service and appetizers came out with dinner.
They were very very busy. service was a little slow in the beginning, but they tried very hard to make up for it. the manager took our order. The food and atmosphere were great, will definitely go again!
We love Brown Dog - food is special, service always good, and the area has walking trails and friendly people.
Absolutely a good choice for lunch or dinner (and brunch on the weekend). Brown Dog gets a Gold Star in all categories as far as I am concerned. Excellent Menu with plenty of traditional offerings and a few things that are wonderful that you may NOT have thought of.... Like a huge fat portobello mushroom burger (it's not a burger since there is NO Meat but it is served on a bun like a burger). Give 'em a try, you will not be sorry.
Food was delicious, the wild boar, halibut and salmon were all creative while keeping the simplicity of the meals. Menu had a great selection, and drink menu was comprehensive and delicious as well! Service was attentive and lighthearted while remaining professional.
Was the worst service ever. Had no server. The manager took our order and food staff brought us our food. No one came to check on us. Waiting on refills and only ordered appetizers and bar drinks. Never would I recommend this restaurant. We would have liked to ordered dinner but from the first 30 mins changed our mind.
Nice restaurant. Well configured to maintain physical distancing. Good food. Good service.
Food and service were pretty good. Had burgers and a house salad. BTW, The house salad with the balsamic dressing is really excellent. Temp was in the 80's on an early June Saturday. Sat comfortably outside shielded from the sun by a tree.
Excellent, tasty, clean, cheerful staff
This was our first visit to the Brown Dog Cafe and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We both got the Lipstick on a Pig which is a sandwich with shaved ham, brie, fig jam and dijonnaise mustard. It was served on a pretzel bun with French fries. The sandwich was excellent and the fries were cooked to perfection. We sat outside and it was a perfect day. We will definitely be back.
The outdoor spaces (roofed and not) are ideal places in which to enjoy a fine meal with fresh air and social distancing. We had Sunday brunch for four, and the brunch specials were great. What's not to like about a breakfast burrito with fresh house-made tortilla?
The flying Hawaiian pizza tastes great is a good serving. Preston was our server and was very attentive during a busy time.
Sam was our waiter and he was absolutely amazing! Ask for him when you visit.
Paul and Ashley were fantastic. Service excellent.
The outside seating is expanded which was perfect to enjoy the park and social distance from other diners. Food also was very good.
Love Brown Dog location and great food
We sat for about 20 minutes without being greeted by a server, even tho several walked by out table. So we left
Brown Dogs food is always very good. Our dishes today were excellent. Then again, it should be as the prices are on the end. What lacks vs the other cost restaurants is that it lacks the level of service and ambiance which should come at that prices
I'll be thinking about that delicious meal for a long time to come. I had the salmon, my friend the pot roast, and both were scrumptious!
Very good time with family. Would highly recommend Brown Dog to others
The food is generally very good at the Brown Dog Cafe. I did, however, have a problem this time. The fried fish sandwich was undercooked and stuck to the bun. So, the fish and bun ended up being very mushy and not edible. I told the waitress, and I selected the fish tacos as a replacement. They were very delicious, so all was good in the end. We sat near the kitchen, so it was a big loud, but nicely energetic.
Our waitress Lisa was great! We had a variety of food at our table from Pizza to salmon. Everything was delicious!
The finest meal north of downtown Cincinnati. Chef Sean and his talented culinary crew never disappoint. One word sums up our dining experience each and every visit:
Excellent food. Diverse menu. Very enjoyable. This was my first visit to their new location. Very cool.
As usual- yum.
Great service and lots of choices to appeal to a big group. Buffalo shrimp salad was great, and friends ordered venison hero and salmon burger which I would like to try another time. Think the servers name was Preston and he was excellent.
Food was great - service good - a little pricey for a hamburger but it was so good I got over it quickly! Very busy so it was a little loud.
Made reservations as we had tickets to the Cincinnati ballet. Service was very good. Manager came around to apologize for being out of the Valentine’s Day specials which was nice. I had the special stuffed flounder and mushroom risotto which was very well balanced though perhaps a bit underwhelming and bland. My wife had the duck which had very interesting flavors combined with the sweet potato and banana mash and charred vegetables. Highlight of the night was our appetizer. Poutine but with tater tots and barbacoa beef was amazing. Would like to come back and try more of the the unique menu. Worth a stop for a dinner night out!
Valentine’s Day dinner at the last minute
As to be expected the place was super busy and seating was super tight.
Food was good not great but still a great value for the fixed price menu. Their regular menu is superb but not available on V-Day
While not an “out of body” experience this time it is definitively a place I would return to for a date night drinks and dinner
Valentines day dinner was great. Menu had a nice variety and staff was awesome. I do not live in Blue Ash but I would come back again. Thank you for making mine and my girlfriend's night.
Great place for Valentine’s. Exquisite special menu, extremely knowledgeable and accommodating of my allergy! Second year in a row going here for Valentine’s and talk of making it tradition.
There seemed to be tables squeezed in for Valentine’s Day which took away from the experience. We really enjoy Brown Dog, but would not do it again for the holiday, the tables were on top of each other.
I had dinner with my wife on Valentine’s Day. Everything was very good: the food, the service, and the value. Ambiance was adequate. I recommend Brown Dog Cafe.
