I really like the ambience of White Dog and on other occasions have found the food acceptable but not exceptional. We’re returning next week for dinner though so far we’ve only done brunch and lunch. Hoping dinner is where they shine because I want to love this place! Service was off. Server forgot the bacon that came with the farmer’s breakfast and no butter or jam for the toast. Had to ask for both. This is not a complaint— realize service is an issue for all restaurants right now.

The White Dog's food is always great, and this was no exception. They kept the outdoor space cozily warm with space heaters.

A retired lunch bunch, this is the second time we assembled at the White Dog in Wayne. The food is good and at top of market in terms of price range. They were extremely busy on a beautiful Indian-summer fall day; nearly full outside for two steady hours. Mushroom soup is a winner and the BQ pulled pork was also quite good. Will likely go again. How good can a $22 hamburger be.....?

Outdoor dining with exceptional service by the General Manager and her table service lead.

One suggestion as November arrives, it would be great to have some type of heat lamp or source of warm air under the beautiful tented , balloon filled environment.

The chicken on my salad was tough like a steak would be. Awful!!! It was necessary for me to return the salad. I have never had tough chicken before.

We came here for a bridesmaids brunch get together. The service was a little slow, drink and food orders got a bit mixed up, the food looked delicious but only tasted ok. I’d come here again for brunch since it does have a nice atmosphere but with lower expectations of the food and service. My experience here for dinner has always been good.

Stephanie was our waitress and she was great. Very disappointed when she told us that the bottomless brunch was discontinued. Please bring it back with some limitations in place. Don’t let a few bad apples ruin it for the rest of us.

I feel like WDC is hit or miss. I've had great meals, and some just so-so. Also felt slightly rushed during this lunch. Would like them to work on their consistency.

Great food and service. So impressive 3 different servers said goodbye and thank you to my 90 yr. old mother as she was walking out One even walked up and supported her elbow as she moved across the room.. Such a class act at this location. Every-time we go there the staff is so appreciative and on top of everything.
