I had a great dinner at Stray Dog! The staff was friendly and attentive and the service was very fast. I had the the Chilaquiles and it was wonderful. I love that they have a full vegetarian menu as well.

I had reservations for my daughter's 30th birthday. These were made two weeks ahead of time. As we were leaving for the restaurant, I got a message on my answering machine from the restaurant, "we cannot honor your reservation because we are renting out the restaurant for a private party, have a happy Halloween."' This is so patently unprofessional and innapropriate and is emblematic of the lack of respect of this restaurant for their customers. I am a frequent diner and have never been treated so poorly by a restaurant.

The ambience at Stray Dog paired with the service and inclusive menu made it one for the books. I highly recommend! I am a vegetarian and my wife eats meat and we were both pleased. We also had an awesome server.

Your system on Friday night 10/1 did not show our reservation. Even when I showed the hostess my confirming email, she was of little help. Our reservation was for inside high top for 5 people. But because our reservation was not in your system, it seemed the hostess could care less. We were only offered a a table outside on the patio, when it was scheduled to rain within the hour. So we had to hurry through dinner to avoid getting rained on. Not a fun experience for my parents who were 88 and 86.

Love this place and always great food, Our waiter was fantastic, which helped. Hostess, not so much.

The food was great, the service was exceptional. We sat outside - streetside, so noisy at times, but a solid fence helped. Overall we had a great time and delicious meals!

The service was terrible, I realize places are understaffed but it took a long time for anything needed. Drinks were delivered to the table with the servers fingers touching the area the area your lips would touch on the glass..gross. We got a beef burger instead of a veggie burger and after I told the guy who dropped off the meals, he simply walked away and had to wait 10 min or so for the server to return. Asked for water, and condiments and that took two attempts to get, forgot the 1st time. Overall, food was good but that’s about it.

Great foodie food!! Quick service-if you need something, they’re on it. Fun lively place. The staff is super-we can always count on consistent excellent service. You can even bring your dog and they’ve got pictures of customers dogs on their bulletin board when you come in.

Service was great, rotational beers continue to be great options, and as I've been here four times in the past few months, there are still menu items I haven't gotten that look fantastic. Haven't been disappointed with anything I've gotten there yet.

We had brunch for two plus the pretzels and cheese curds as an appetizer. My friends sandwich had a hair in it and my Moscow mule was not good at all—but they comped both. Food was great in terms of taste.

The burgers at Stray Dog are excellent! Definitely one of my favorite burgers in town, which is why I keep going back. Great beer selection, too. The waitstaff is super friendly but can be hit-or-miss on whether the service is consistent. We went on a Saturday night and got seated right away, but it took an unusually long time for our waiter to bring water and take our order. At least the food came out fast, and is consistently delicious! Recommend the Rooster burger.
