Had a reservation for 12:30 pm outside. Didn’t get seated until after 1:00 pm. Waiter was great, food and drinks were served very quickly. Outside can’t be beat on a nice day.

I had the Turkey sandwich, wish I would’ve gotten something else - wasn’t really my style. Truffle fries and Caesar salad were fantastic as usual.

We have enjoyed dining at other White Dog restaurants in the area and were so happy to discover The White Dog in Glen Mills! We knew to expect wonderful ambience, service, and food and we were not disappointed.

Thank you, White Dog, for another memorable experience! We won't be strangers!\

I've eaten at the Sansom Street location many times. Our server was quick to point out they have different menus, but the food was just as good, and the service was quicker.

I had a 5oz piece of halibut that was thrown under a broiler which sat overtop some cold white beans and poorly prepared kale greens. Not much flavor and the portion was too small for $38. Halibut can be a bit pricy but $38 for what I was served is ridiculous. The server was courteous and prompt.

I have visited White Dog several times during the past summer. First time I was disappointed. We visited for a late lunch and they only had brunch menu. Lunch selections were limited.

Seating was backed up a bit but the hostess handled it well. Fifteen minutes promised was fifteen minutes! We ate outside which was delightful among all the potted plants. The BLT salad was beautifully presented, crisp, fresh and tasty. I had the grilled trout and my husband had lamb bolognese. Both were excellent. Our server was delightful! Highly recommend this place!

Execution of some of their dishes were disappointing. They tend to have unique meals and they have a good reputation.

Not great. Mason jar cups with water were dirty. Ordered the mushroom soup and side of fried pickles, and my partner ordered a Caesar salad with added protein of salmon on top (part of the mid-day menu options). My soup came out with his Caesar salad but it didn’t have salmon on it. We asked about the salmon and the waitress came back and asked if he wanted the salmon entree (there was none of the mid-day menu) or salmon on top. He confirmed salmon on top of the salad, like the menu had as an option, and they took the salad and we waited another 15 minutes for the salad to come back out with salmon on top. By that time I finished my soup because it was getting cold. When his salad came back out they also brought my fried pickles. The aioli that came with the pickles had a hair in it so I ate dry pickles. When we received the check we got charged $30 for a salmon entree instead of the salmon on the salad and had to wait to get it corrected. The waitress passed us several times throughout our meal without stopping to ask how anything was. We had to flag her down to ask for more water. The most attention we received was on our way out the front door where 5 staff members said “thanks for coming” and one oddly said “we’re glad you had a nice time!” No one asked me if I had a nice time ?? The only positive thing was the mushroom soup tasted good.

We had a very nice lunch. Our waitress was accommodating and outgoing. We were sitting outside and got to see a few sweet dogs that joined their owners for lunch. That was an extra bonus!. It is on the pricier side but the food is good so can’t complain.

Smaller menu than in Philadelphia, but still plenty to choose from. We were able to book a table outside which was lovely. Fresh, flavorful food, and excellent service - attentive without hovering. Fun drinks menu too.

Food was fantastic as always and the outdoor patio setup is so wonderful, perfect ambiance for a summer night. The service, however, was a bit lacking. I don't know if it was because we were seated at the very end of the patio, but our server and the bussing staff/runners would disappear at times in the meal when a server would normally check in or come to the table (our finished dinner plates sat in front of us for over 10 minutes and our server was nowhere to be found), and we did not have our waters re-filled once. He was very nice and offered suggestions off the menu and I have to concede that I don't know if they were short-staffed or if he had too many tables, but the service was just a bit slow and it was hard to flag someone down.
I also found it a bit odd that, when I asked what was in the white sangria, our server looked at me like I had two heads. Sangria can contain a multitude of different fruits or liquors so I was just curious before I ordered it (it was DELICIOUS at the end of the day). We will always enjoy White Dog, but there is a location closer to our home that we would enjoy more for indoor dining and would only come to this location for patio dining.

We went to White Dog for brunch. The space is beautifully decorated and clean. The staff was very nice and professional. The food was just OK. I had the frittata special which was room temperature and had hardly any vegetables in my slice. The other guests food looked good. Lovely setting and may go back in the future, but not a top spot for me.
