Daily special was a paddy-melt which was excellent with stuff pepper soup ( to die for). Also had a chicken wrap which was more than generous. Total bill with a pop and beer was $$ plus tip. Highly recommend.

Good variety on the menu. Chicken wings were the perfect crispy. Tuna filet salad was done to perfection, paired with cashews, peppers ... mmm! Great selection of beers. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the servers were more concerned with cleaning the bar than checking with customers.

This is just a fun place to have a meal with friends. We all had a different type of cheeseburger and fries. The service was fabulous and the atmosphere is great. We visited in November so the roof-top seating was not available. We arrived around 8:30 on a Friday evening and had to wait 30 minutes but it worked out... More

Great food, drinks, and atmosphere! My fiancé and I really enjoyed our time. There was a little bit of a wait so we found a spot at the bar. I had a moscow mule and it was delicious! If we find ourselves back in New Buffalo again we will be back.

This place is one of New Buffalo's gems. The food, atmosphere and service are always great. Whenever my family and I are in the area, we make sure to visit The Stray Dog. Also, in the spring and summer when the weather is nice, sitting on the terrace is a great experience. Beautiful views of Lake Michigan never disappoint.

Tried there 2 hot dog special. Really disappointed in the size and quality of the dog, reminded me of the overpriced dogs you get at Wrigley Field.

This restaurant is one of the best restaurants that you will ever come across. It is in a great little town of the coast of lake michigan. The atmosphere is great and so is the food.
