Our second visit, and while we loved our first meal, this one found us in a noisy, awkward table and the food was not as good as the last time. We loved it the last time, so we will be sure to try again.

We've enjoyed the White Dog Cafe in Philadelphia in the past and were so happy to discover the new location in Glen Mills. Though the ambience in the two locations is different, the themes, great food and friendly service are still first rate. We look forward to returning there to dine again soon.

Food was fantastic. Service: well, understaffed, it appears. They just could not seem to get the order right; once they did, a side never came. By the time they asked if we still wanted it, it was too late. Manager did graciously give our table dessert on the house, since this had been such a struggle, and they certainly handled the situation well. We will definitely return, as the food was excellent.

Everything great, but my seat faced the interior of the kitchen, which is a distraction, and does not contribute to the ambiance.

First, our server was absolutely wonderful. She was polite and courteous when I asked for an substitution to something on the menu. It did get rather loud in the room we were in but that would not stop us from going back again. The watermelon mint martini was outstanding. We will be back !

Our waitress, Kate, was outstanding - fun, engaging, and informative. The food was tasty with nice upgrades to common menu items (ie: truffle fries vs just fries). We were there for a graduation and they gave us champagne glasses filled with age appropriate beverages so we could do a toast. A very nice touch! We sat at a large round table which was wonderful.

The White Dog is a nice addition to the Glen Mills food scene. I have eaten lunch there twice. Both times I had Ellie as my waitress and she is beyond wonderful. I think the food is good but too pricey for what you get. I don't think I would go for dinner for that reason. There are other really excellent restaurants in the area with delicious food and lower prices.
The ambiance inside is just okay. I think the outside area is great.
I had the Crabcake sandwich this time. It was delicious. It came with some greens on the plate. There were two slices of bacon on the sandwich and a brioche bun. $22.00
Nothing comes with the meal like bread. Like I said...pricey.

Celebrated a High School graduation with brunch for 8 on Sunday. I had pre-selected patio seating and 2 tables adjacent and they accommodated the request. It was warm and sunny and the umbrellas are a little small but otherwise it was perfect. Our server was amazing, very friendly and attentive. We had our own cake that they cut and served and added ice cream for a small PP cutting fee. The food quality was outstanding and generous portions. The cocktails and mocktails were delicious. I would definitely come back here for special occasion or date night and highly recommend.

Breakfast food is mediocre - the omelets were a plain egg circle with topping stuck in the middle at the end (vs. incorporated). Barely any mushrooms on mushroom omelet and an overabundance of the cheaper ingredient buttery caramelized onions, to the point we felt ill eating so many. Not a very fancy omelet for the fancy price. The smoked trout toast, however, was very good and noteworthy to get again. $13 bloody mary, heavy on ice, not a big glass, but did taste good.

Our waitress was exceptionally friendly and very good. Food was good but we were taken aback that we had to pay $8.00 for a small basket of bread. Is that really necessary?

The dinner menu is a bit limited and strange, which is disappointing. The green fried tomatoes special was similarly not great. The hostess stopped by to check on us while we were eating the green fried tomatoes and proceeded to tell us how great they were instead of asking us OUR opinion. But in general, it’s a nice place Amanda we wish them success.

We enjoyed the soup and grilled cheese special, which came with a nice side salad too. Just perfect! We splurged on mocktails and recommend the RPM and Benji Nojito. As we lingered, catching up on the craziness of the past year, we also ordered dessert. We had the Vanilla Creme Brûlée and the Mixed Berry Creampuff, and both were yummy! Love the decor, too! We had hoped to sit outside, but the weather wasn’t cooperative. We’ll be back to try the patio!

What a delightful experience for our first time out after being fully vaccinated. Food was yummy (the mushroom soup is the best I've had and I like to try all mushroom soups in the Kennett Square region!), server was awesome (brought a different beer for my 90-yr-old dad even though he got what he ordered but didn't love it), and ambiance was charming. We will be back!

Our server was very nice and professional. The pace of the meal was rushed. The main course was brought to the table while we were still having soup and cheese board. They took it back but when brought back out, our food was luke warm. From the bar, my wife ordered a mojito and it was basically rum and club soda.
Everyone was very nice but the experience was a bit disappointing.
