Our second time there and first time since Covid. Food was as good as we remembered. Had the shrimp tacos and they were delicious. Husband had the Thai chicken salad sandwich which was also very good.

We went to Old Dog on a Saturday. The patio was full so we sat inside. My wife had a steak and I had Salmon. Both were cooked to temperature and tasty. Nice reduction for the salmon and the sides that came with the steak, charred Brussel sprouts and maple polenta, were good. Staff was attentive so no complaints.

The food was good, but not great; a bit overpriced. The beer was delicious. Our waitress was pleasant, but certainly overlooked and “just ok”. Would certainly go back.

Made reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. There were tables on either side of us but the wait staff never came over to greet and get our drink orders. We waited there for over 20 minutes and even with the wait staff working with the two tables right next to us, they did not even acknowledge we were there. We left after 20 minutes. I understand a lot of restaurants are understaffed right now but there seemed to be plenty of staff to handle the amount of tables that were full.

This was our second time going to Old Dog Ale House. First time was definitely better. They were clearly understaffed as it took forever to be waited on. Didn't serve wine or liquor on Sunday. Kept leaving the door to the patio open, so our table was swarmed with flies landing on us and our food.

We waited over 30 minutes for our entrees . The waitress did keep checking on it. When it finally came out, it had obviously been sitting somewhere. My soft tacos were crispy on the top as in stale. The inside was cold. The lobster max and cheese had a hard crust on the top again like it had sat somewhere. It was hot but lacked flavor. The waitress did comp the one dish. The appetizer was good and came out fast so we were really disappointed the entrees were so bad.

Need an option for patio reservations. The patio looked nice.

Noise level is very annoying, suggest using some baffles. Takes away from enjoyment of the otherwise excellent experience!

Initial impression was good for a typical modern bar/restaurant. We were greeted promptly and seated. Wait staff was friendly and helpful to our first time experience. However, despite having reservation with limited seating capacity, there was an abnormally long wait for our food. The salmon entree was excellent; although very heavily salted. The steak was cooked properly, but was cold at service. Also, the quality of the cut was poor. Risotto was excellent; although it was also too salty. Smashed potatoes side dish and side salad were small in portion; though very appetizing and delicious.
