Very cute establishment. Love the theme of dedication to Dogs. Fixer Upper Chip and Joanna will be highly impressed by the shiplap and decor. Food was normal pub grub. Decently priced and superb location. Staff friendly and fast. Will come back again when visiting the area.

My wife and I stopped overnight in the area and looked for a place to have an evening meal. Not knowing the area, consulted Trip Advisor to learn a bit more about several options. Decided to go with the #1 pick, and were not disappointed. Service was GREAT! Our waitress was super. Management seemed to think they were slow in... More

Nice, quick walk to the water. Very busy on a Saturday, our mistake by not calling and making reservations. Atmosphere was really nice! Food was pretty average like pub food. Kids enjoyed the food too. They were very accomodating for our large crowd of 10 ppl. Im pretty sure they have a roof top seating with water view too.

On our way home from Chicago, we decided to stop here for an early dinner on Mother's Day. There was quite a wait for 4pm, but it was worth it. I gave them my cell number and they would just text us when our table was ready, so we took a walk to the beach. When our table was ready... More

Awesome meal, I had the Poke appetizer and the Asian Beef Salad. The Poke was super fresh and a great portion. The salad was a mixed green with fresh herbs and steak. I had a Grapefruit Gin & Tonic that any G&T lover could certainly appreciate. The atmosphere is fun and lively.

Nice place to catch a quick bite or cocktails while traveling through the SW MI area. Just off HWY at New Buffalo exit. Stay on road until you get to lake. Stray Dog on right. Good food, service, and a very cool upstairs rooftop seating section for summer stops. And a great little gift shop next door to pick up... More
