Food was great and our server Tina was very attentive and friendly. Our table was just a little awkward as it was a somewhat big round with high back chairs so we were pretty far apart from each other and I felt like I had to talk loud sometimes ha. Otherwise a great experience! Went for brunch, the bottomless deal is worth it. You can start with something and switch it up at any time which is really nice!

We ate lunch under the tent. It was a damp cool day...so by the end of our lunch we were cold. I suggest now that fall is here you take a lap blanket to stay warmer. The food was delish and the server sweet.

I can always depend on White Dog for good food and exceptional service. I was disappointed that our server forgot my drink order. I wasn’t charged for it, so I let it go.

the food was delicious, the service was excellent. Our only concern was that we were placed a bit too close to the next table, on the other side of some decoration. We were worried that it would also be cold, but it was not. Thank you

Service was great, burgers were not cooked to order (almost raw when well was ordered), cocktails were great.

On a rainy lunch visit. Outdoor seating was enclosed on all four sides. In some regions that is considered indoor dining. Servers congenially moved us to a more agreeable table.

We like the White Dog Cafe. Outdoor dining is a bit challenging when the weather is poor, but table spacing and ventilation was appropriate. The food is outstanding, but pricey for lunch. I would like to see a few more moderately priced lunch items on the menu.

White Dog did not disappoint for brunch. However sitting outside in an enclosed tent, is like an incubator, don't see the point on a nice day why they wouldn't have some sections open air. It was hot, and almost felt like a sweat box. It was decorated nicely, and a good concept, but what would be the reason to sit in an enclosed tent, seems like the virus could spread even more. The food and service were excellent. I'd go again, but would ask to have the tent side raised where I was sitting, or just sit out on the open patio out front or inside.

I had the eggs benedict and the white portion was not cooked at all. I did not want to send back since my brunch partners were happy with their choices.

Outdoor space is lovely. Everything is fresh and service is generally good. Brunch is definitely the best meal here!
My only issue was during check for our table there were too many people in the doorway and the hosts did not attempt to distance people.

It was such a nice day people sat at their tables longer so we had to wait quite a while for our table which had been reserved in advance.

Everything was fabulous! We waited a bit after our reservation to be seated, but the staff was so apologetic and compensated our cake fee (it was my birthday and my mom brought a cake). There were 6 at our table and we all got different entrees: beef, chicken, scallops, fish. All of it was outstanding! Would definitely recommend!

I have always heard great things about White Dog and was excited to finally try it out. We celebrated my sisters 30th Birthday last week and enjoyed everything from drinks, to appetizers, to entrees. We ALL cleaned our plates. I would definitely recommend.

We were seated right away. The tables were spaced appropriately for the times. Wait staff friendly and well informed on all items on menu. Food was delicious. Kitchen willing to modify one of the dishes because of dietary restrictions. The space heaters worked and made dining outside very pleasant. Highly recommend as a place to eat.
