We recently visited this small restaurant and overall had a good experience. The staff was super friendly and, since the place is so small, will page you when a table is ready. We browsed the christmas ornament store next door, which is packed with stuff....More

I do not know. They were no dogs in there when we dined there. Relatively small establishment so it may not work well.
