Great Mac and Cheese! Outdoor dining is off the street and is lovely. Situated on bustling State Street right in the heart of town. Just up the street from the main campus and many of the amenities of our great city!

The food, service and ambience all very good. Good place for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Good place to go before a performance at Hill, Power Center or a movie! We have enjoyed the many meals we have had here.

They have vegan options. . . not so sure about gluten free. I asked for gluten free bread and they had none. They do juicing before 3pm. That would be gluten free. . .and vegan.

Just call them. My guess is most restaurants with outside dining in A2 will allow dogs in their patio areas. I do not think there are any indoor pet friendly restaurants. Savas does have outside dining.
