My wife and I enjoy the Happy Hour here in addition to the occasional meal. It's our favorite place to visit in Wayne. What's not to love about $5 wine and a Honey Mule with one of White Dog's friendly bartenders (Peter)!

We were casually dressed (during lunch hour)...jeans and shorts. Dinner crowd coming in after us were dressier (nice slacks, dresses, men in nice slacks and polo shirts). They don't mind casual attire they informed us!

Radnor Township does not allow dogs on patio at the Wayne location. Other two locations do allow dogs to sit on patio.
