I had breakfast at the Poodle Dog this morning. I was very pleased with the service, the atmosphere, and especially with my meal! The portions are indeed large, however, the menu does have a section of Lite-Side meals on it too. I would characterize the food as good ole country kitchen style cuisine. The place sort of reminds me of... More

Poodle Dog is a great, classic diner that went mediocre for awhile but has come back full force. It is the gem of the South Sound Restaurant Group.

The Poodle Dog has been a reliable meeting place since the 40s. The food was good then and the food is good now. Under the "great" catagory is the breakfast buritto. But lunch is great and dinner terrific...all-american favorites with a full plate. Won't strain the budget, either. So if you're out and about and need a quick bite? Try... More

If you have kids that are hungry.... Dont come here! It will take them 20+ take your order and another 40 minutes to get food. I was so annoyed with this place i had to tell the manager how ridiculous it was to wait that long for food that was average at best.

The bar needs additional servers but the food is good. Don't come here if you're in a hurry. Several people left because they couldn't get service.
