The fish and chips were excellent. They have a good selection of beers on tap - I recommend their IPA's.

Near the seaplane water runway. Very cool. We had dinner for four. Sort of half pub and half restaurant. The food was good and the service was just fine. Got to see the planes take off. Not too touristy for being in the tourist area.

I don't know. But, it looks like you could have your dog out on the patio with you, as there is seating out there. Worth an inquiry for sure. Good luck!
