This is my favorite neighborhood bar. The wait staff is good, the service is fast. Trivia night is always fun. They make a mean old fashioned, and the house mule is good too. It is a relaxed environment that makes it easy to sit and relax for a while.
I walked into The Family Dog and sat at the bar. Was so excited about this place that I drove out my way to come only to be disappointed. The bartender just ignored me altogether. Then some other people came and there he was laughing and talking and getting them menus and shaking hands with people and In had to ask the host, Will for a menu. As Ingot my menu the bartender says I will be right with you and then I looked the menu over a few times and then I was ready but of course even though I was there waiting first his friends became top priority. I told Will I was leaving but he insisted on getting the order. In see someone cares so I decided to place my order with him. Lovely guy with so much potential. Will saved them from getting less than a 1star other than that this review would have been worst. I will not say why I feel the bartender ignored me but if he had been paying attention instead of fixing his glasses and acting as though he was so busy with his bar he would have seen me. I got my food, thanks Will, but had food and drinks elsewhere. When you are on this side of town please go to Doc Chey's service is amazing and I really enjoyed the food. Thank you Will for caring for your customers and you should go back to bartending you probably want your money since your bartender didn't.
They say they serve food here, and they might be doing so when you sit down, but by the time the staff asks you if you'd like anything, the kitchen is closed. The place has gone through a lot of changes over the years. It doesn't really know what it wants to be. I'll be back, but only because I can walk here. Edit: It's getting better.
This place what can I say?? Fun atmosphere amazing staff and really great drinks. Food was excellent
