Mother’s Day meal but it was similar to our other meals at this location. Friendly service, attentive staff, managers walk floor and check in. Quality food prepared well. A nice place we enjoy going for an afternoon meal regularly with our toddler. They accommodate children fine but don’t cater to them with coloring pages, booster seats and crayons...which is fine for us. We’re not looking for a kid’s restaurant that parents can also eat. They offer high chairs and kid’s version of some of the normal menu items. If you need a kid’s cup or booster then bring your own. This is a place for grownups to have a great meal and be served by a very good staff.

We got last minute reservations for Mother’s Day and everything was delicious! Kennett mushroom omelette was amazing as well as the avocado BLT egg sandwich. Always a favorite place!

The restaurant was very nicely appointed and the staff were friendly and responsive. The food was just fair. Every item had something off about it. The mushroom omelet's fillings were overly sweet. The spinach on the smoked salmon benedict was gritty. The strawberry belini had an off putting herb infused in the drink that was not disclosed in the description and made the drink unappealing. The side of sausage were patties that were tough and flavorless unless dipped in the very sweet dipping sauce. They need to keep things simple. Missed the mark for everyone in our party and we had high hopes.

Fun night on the patio with my girlfriends, despite being a bit chillier than we wanted for May, it was a wonderful meal and dining experience. The burrata salad with shrimp was delicious as were the cocktails!

Mother’s Day weekend is hard for restaurants and servers, I’ll acknowledge that up front. I’m a fan of White Dog Wayne, so I booked lunch for my mother (lives in Glen Mills) and husband, for outdoor seating on Saturday. When we got there, the weather looked like it might rain. My husband asked about what they do if it starts to rain. He was met with, “What am I the weather man? and told we’d have to sit at a high top inside. This was not an option for my 76 year old mom, so we sat outside. We ordered and it started to rain. We asked our waiter about our options. He said we could stand inside. We asked if we could sit at a table with an umbrella. No. We asked to talk to the manager. He did not bring the manager. We were finally told there was no room in the restaurant unless we wanted to sit at the bar. The waiter asked if we wanted our meal to go. We said, no, and he turned and walked away. We spoke to the manager, who had clearly not talked to our waiter and she tried to rectify the situation. We left without eating. Moral of the story, if you’re willing to spend $100+ on Mother’s Day lunch, the restaurant should have a contingency plan for rain or at the least be polite.

Our Friday dinner was for pleasure and business. Our waitress, Dominique, was polite, knowledgeable and provided terrific service. I have eaten at the White Dog Cafe several times in Wayne, PA. I found the White Dog Cafe in Glen Mills to be on the same high quality level.

Fun dog-loving decor and the outdoor seating was comfortable (on a perfect weather day). We ordered two different salads and split a dessert for lunch and the portions were just right. Server was very efficient and personable---a real pro! Will definitely be back!

Great server, outdoors very comfortable, food very good. Disappointed with the price of wines. While I expect to pay more for the wine Thani can get at the wine store, I don’t expect a charge of more than 5 to 6 times the actual cost. Also, didn’t like that there was a charge for bread.

I have eaten at all of the WD locations over the years. Love the aesthetic of this location; both inside and the patio are gorgeous. It is very noisy inside, but being seated @ one of the banquette tables helped to minimize the noise, as did the plexiglass dividers. The menu is similar at all of the locations and while I loved my crabcake sandwhich it was kind of a chore to eat as it fell apart at th first bite, but it was tasty so not complaining too much.

The humans needs some help. Something was missing, I think more garlic needed. Veggies and pita and crackers all great. Crab cake BLT was delicious. Drinks are great, and our server Kevin was great, very attentive.

Fantastic experience from beginning to end! Our server was amazing (can’t remember your name but if you’re reading this, we were the ones you brought extra ricotta to). Food was outstanding, drinks were superb and the service was exceptional 👌🏽 definitely returning soon! Already have reservations at your Samson St location in June. Thank you!
