This is the perfect stop for a beer and a light bite, away from the maddening crowds in Merchant's Square. Lovely little snug, with all kinds of doggie gifts for humans and canines alike. OMG - they had a Puggle Coaster! I was very excited...More

This restaurant did not disappoint! The dog theme is very cute, but not cheesy or over done. The prices are reasonable and the food was DELICIOUS! Be sure to try the crab tortellini and the plantains. Don't miss out on this fabulous find.
