Brown Dog Cafe is located in Summit Park, Blue Ash, Ohio, formerly the Blue Ash airport.
We believe in supporting local artisans like Blue Oven Bakery & WoodBottom Quail Farms. We source our greens, asparagus, meats, eggs, nitrate free bacon locally. We use Blue Oven Bakery bread & we select sustainable seafood for our dishes. Our pate, stocks, preserves, jams & dressings are made in house, from scratch.
Good food that is not pretentious. This is the motto of Brown Dog Cafe owner and executive chef, Shawn McCoy. McCoy and his culinary team offer spirited, playful dishes that reflect the diverse influences on American food today. The Brown Dog Cafe continues to specialize in wild game preparation, such as rabbit, duck, venison and boar.
The Brown Dog Cafe provides casual fine dining for personal as well as business dinners. Our bar is a fun, personable place for drinks.

The Brown Dog Cafe offers private seating for groups of up to 65 guests.

We have eaten here many, many times and always are satisfied. They have so many gluten free options, including several wonderful desserts!! Just tried the brunch and was great as well.

Outstanding! Complementary chowder shots from the kitchen started the evening off with a taste bud party. My wife and I had the wild boar and pork chop. Both were excellent - exploding with flavor. The boar is best cooked to medium rare temperature. Bread pudding dessert is a must.

Wasn’t great-burger waayy undercooked-waiter offered to take back but service was so slow didn’t want to wait. We got there at 7:00, didn’t get service for 10 minutes, drinks weren’t given to us until 7:25, way too slow.

We typically have a good meal at Brown Dog and on our visit had some good items--except for the Wild Board I ordered. I was able to eat some of it, then had it removed from the table. Service staff was on the issue, and they removed the item from our bill. The rest of our experience was good.

We will return.

Very disappointing. We use to really enjoy dining at the previous location, it found this menu to be pretentious and over priced. Even the pecan pie was not what I had expected. Will not go there again.
