Lunch with our dog
Dog lovers paradise. Highly recommend for drinkers and non drinkers alike.
Great pet-friendly place for happy hour or a quick bite. Limited menu, but there is something for everyone and each plate we tried was delicious. Our dog enjoyed the open areas! Better for small/medium dogs when it is crowded as bigger breeds may find it a little snug.
LOVE this place! Where else can you sit INSIDE with your dog and eat? The food is really good, they have local beer (wine as well) and great outdoor space as well.
Appreciate the support, Lindsey! Glad you were able to enjoy everything including the steak tacos! Hope to see you soon!
I am so happy Barkhaus is in the neighborhood! My pup had a great time here and so did we! Great food, great drinks (their hot cider is amazing), and great company. The staff is super friendly.
Nice place for beer and quick bite. Pup area is a bit small, but my pup had a great time.
5 stars for the concept, staff, cleanliness, and the IPA I had.
4 stars for the food - would have given 5 stars but both beef orders (the burger and steak tacos) were taken during the order to be med and med-rare - but came out med-well and well). Still very good though.
Went during Happy Hour and it was a good blend of nice people and friendly dogs. Not a big place so I can’t speak for what it’s like when it gets “busy” since I got there early - but overall I was very pleased and will definitely return!
Already told three other dog owners about it!
We really like this place. It is a great place to have some food and hang out with your dog and friends. The service is always great. Absolutely no complaints and all praises for this place.
Thank you so much for visiting! Hope to see you soon
Cute concept. Tiny place. We had the burger. Over cooked. Too much vinegar in the onions. Meh.
Amazing place to take your date and pooch! Love being able to spend time with my pooch, drink and dine while spending time with other dog lovers. 2 paws up!
It’s always a fun and enjoyable experience bringing our pup!
This was a great experience. Was so happy to finally have a place to bring my dog to play while we eat. I wish there were more places like this!
There is a required registration for entry with a dog, which at first glance seems like a lot. And then one can begin to understand the logic on the defensive practice that they must be in. Aside from that, it’s a great place. The atmosphere is great. The food is great. The IPA, milk stout and caramel macchiato stout were delicious! There is a sweet potato chip dip- That’s divine. Also, my dog had a great time and she played with another dog really well, which exhausted her and I didn’t have to take her for an evening walk. Score! There are a lot of locals meeting up with other local dogs. This place is doing well despite Covid. Overall great fun!
We really appreciate the support! We're also extremely grateful for the level of understanding we've received from the community. Our goal is to provide a place where everyone can easily meet and come together and everyone knows dogs make the perfect ice breakers. Thank you for supporting our new small business during these difficult times!
Great place to take your dog and get some good food.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope to see you again soon!
Fun place with a great atmosphere. Would love to visit again
We would love to have you! Glad you enjoyed everything.
Excellent food and great doggy activities! We can't wait to go back!
Appreciate the support during these unprecedented times!
Great food and atmosphere ! Staff was very friendly. Awesome concept!
Terrific experience! Decent food. AMAZING staff!!! Love, love, love!
Really fun environment! Friendly staff, great food!
Love this place! The steak tacos and Christmas card station are a must!
Dogs and beer - doesn't get much better than that. :)
Remarkably friendly & attentive staff.
Great food and lots of good company. Highly recommend this innovative new restaurant design.
Great place to have drinks, snacks and meet dog owners while you dog is having fun at the park.
This place is awesome. Great service, great selection of beer/wine/food. Staff was helpful and enthusiastic. Surprised by how well the dog bar situation all worked out.
Parm Fries are on point. Flat bread and Steak tacos are fantastic. The only suggestion I have is that the wings could be more crispy.
Barkhaus Proved to be a very enjoyable and fun experience. We ordered multiple items from the menu, flatbread was excellent fries were delicious and the wings had a nice bite to them.... we had a great spot outside and were able to watch and interact with the dogs and their owners. People were very friendly and the staff was on their toes and attentive....will be back, despite not owning a dog!
Best idea to ever hit Alexandria area!!! Great guacamole, super friendly staff, and, of course, a great concept.
Thanks so much for visiting!
Dog or no, this spot is super comfortable and fun. Food is phenomenal and portions are large for the fries and flatbread. Staff provides great service and is super friendly. Drink selection is pretty good too. The pups love the outdoor park area and they have heaters set up to keep it toasty.
We appreciate the support Jenna! Thanks for coming!
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Although the dog park space is fairly small, it was great to be able to drink and eat while watching our pups play.
Thanks for coming by! We appreciate the feedback. With COVID and all, we had to scale down our original plans to make a larger park! Stay tuned for the future!
Friendly and creative approach to dog friendly establishments.
Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you again!
Excellent! Really like the burger combo concept.
Glad you enjoyed the burger special! Stay tuned for many more!
Great beer and we get to bring the puppy!
Glad you enjoyed everything! Thanks for coming!
Great idea for a business. Was a very smooth process and the staff was well prepared opening weekend. Hope to see a rooftop area one day!
Thank you for coming and supporting small businesses! Hope to see you more!
Barkhaus is my favorite new restaurant to take my pup! Great food and drink and my dog is exhausted by the end!
Thanks for stopping by! Loved having you and your pup at our park!
I’ll start with the good - barkhaus is a new business with an innovative idea to let humans enjoy some time outside/inside in a structured way with their dog(s). I know I was excited to enjoy the atmosphere with my dog and my partner. Unfortunately, barkhaus does not live up to expectations. The dog areas are extremely cramped - outdoors, the dog run could only accommodate 7-8 small dogs, or 3-4 bigger dogs (50lbs and up). And there were only four stools where owners could sit, so people were sitting on the curb which runs along the inside of the gated area. It’s really not a dog run at all, just a gated area with some cheap turf laid down. My dog, a 50 lb lab mix, was confused by the lack of space for her to move around and just stood by my side the whole time quietly, which made me sad. I brought her there because I thought she could run around and make friends while I had a bite to eat. All of the other dogs there were small French bulldogs or lap
Dogs. I realize this may have more to do with the time you go, and the fact that it was opening weekend. Still, I assumed there would be way more space and in fact we were cramped. The indoor “space” for dogs to be off leash is just a concrete floor with two bar tables for humans to stand at in the middle. You can basically fit 2-4 dogs in there if you want them to play or run around. And who wants to stand in an empty concrete room while their dog just stands there on the concrete? I also acknowledge they just opened, and may work these issues out, which I hope they do. We certainly wouldn’t return until there is more off-leash play space made for the dogs. I write this just to let everyone know what they are getting into if you have a big dog. We left right after we realized there wasn’t enough space for our pup to run around and play off leash. If you’re just coming here to drink a beer with your dog under your table, that would make more sense. But I’d rather go to Lena’s pizza down the street, & so would my dog.
Hi Cheri I wanted to say thank you for coming by on our opening weekend! We appreciate your feedback and will certainly work on your concerns. We ordered rubber matts and more stools for the play area inside to accommodate all. Unfortunately, we are limited on space due to City ordinances and are already looking to expand. Our turf is top of line pet and heavy traffic turf. We released our renderings and dog capacity of 50 dogs (total) prior to our opening to help inform the public.
Great place to bring your dog! The food and prices were awesome. Very friendly environment.
Hi Sara, Your support means a ton to us at Barkhaus! Thank you for trying us out!
Great concept but food and beverage offerings need to be improved.
My dog and I had a great time. Excellent food. Great beer options. Dogs and dog people socializing. Great concept.
We appreciate the feedback! Hope to see you soon!
We had a great time with our dog at Barkhaus. She got to run around and play with other dogs while we relaxed with a drink. Good time had by all!
Good food and good service. Our dog loved it. This will be a great option when the cold weather comes too.
Glad you enjoyed everything and we appreciate your support!
