It was a really nice evening in a sportsbar, which is really close to some lakes. I guess during summertime even better, when you can seat outside. Lot of fingerfood-price/quality ratio absolutely great! For a nice evening absolutely recommended!

Sorry to say I don't know. Cannot recall seeing dogs, but think you should give them a call to ask. Good luck!
