Stopped by mostly on a lark. Saw it on a local broadcast of local joints. Dog themed dive. I like dogs, but they take it to the extreme. Beer prices are astronomical.
$22 for a bomber I can get up the road for $10? Come on people, get your act together & stop ripping off the customers.
$6.50 for a can of Guinness?
Wonít be going back anytime soon, unless they cut their beer prices by 75% or so.

Stopped in for a brief visit recently. I was pleasantly surprised to see Goose Island Bourbon County Stout on draft, along with a variety of other tasty brews, some of which I hadnít seen prior. Service is friendly and prompt. Nice atmosphere. The Lost Dog Cafe offers a nice selection of bottles to go. My chief gripe is the price. I paid $9.27 (not including tip) for a pint of Bear Republic NoríCal, a "session" IPA weighing in at under 5% abv. Thatís ridiculous, and enough to keep me from coming back. I understand marking a beer up, but where do we, as consumers, draw the line? Iím not sure, but more than $10 for a sessionable brew seems wrong to me. Worth a stop if youíre in the area, but bring some cash if youíre planning on imbibing.

The one score of 94 is definitely an employee or related to the business somehow. Regardless, this place is a nice beer stop. The food is good as well, but the vibe is a joke. Silly dog themed goofiness and I feel dump ordering anything of the menu--given the ridiculous names of each item--but it most certainly did have a nice bottle and draft list to back it all up. I live 200 yards away (just moved here, new house), so will be revisiting frequently, but at most its a good stop if you want a nice beer, but a silly neighborhood vibe to tackle. Very prompt service though!! But also, not a great value.

A small cafe bar-with friendly, neighborhood feel a couple of TVís with sports-all-the-time. Great thin-crust pizza, sandwiches/rolls, pastas, and lasagnas, including a vegetarian lasagna. Also good chips and pickles, and their warm brownie with cream and vanilla ice cream is great. The breads are fresh and flavorful. Attentive, friendly service - but you determine the degree of engagement, nothing imposed. My wife and I love the Muttly. Oh, the decor is alone worth the visit. Check out the menís restroom wall mural, regardless of your gender.

This second location for Lost Dog apparently opened not too long ago, meaning to go there for quite some time it was just perfect that I was there. Did carry out, as one of my friends lived right around the corner. We grabbed two mixed six packs, and three pizzas. Wonderful, just wonderful.
