It is a small restaurant but they accommodated our large group. Food was good, our son's cheese quesadilla was the best! Service was unfriendly.

It's not. We were bummed! We found other restaurants that are. Bella's, Martyr's & La Cueva. Good Luck. We're coming down with our pooches in June 2017. Also, I read that Bent's Cafe allows dogs on the patio.
