We went after a hiking event to get a quick bite to eat. The atmosphere is very cozy and historic. Very Clean. Everyone enjoyed thier food. I had the Crab Nachos which were just phenomenal. One of my companions ordered a burger and it was huge and they could only eat half. Very nice crowd.

Grab a table on the back patio. Your 4 legged friend will be welcome too. Check the website for the frequent live music. Inside or out, the menu always has a good variety of offerings. We frequently share appetizers - they are good sized portions. Good beer selection.

We love this place! Our favorite place to sit is in the 'front' room of the very old building that houses this tavern. There is a fire...and, it's very homey...year around. Go late 70's and order the fondue and the grasshoppers. Go current and enjoy a great charcuterie board and wine. BEST of all...make sure you order their frozen lemon... More

Seated in a bar with two little children. When speaking to the hostess and waitress, they told me I should have known better even when it was stated I have never been to the restaurant before. Very disappointed in the costumer service.

This was our second trip to Four Dogs Tavern and we couldn't have been happier. Both times we were seated in the bar area. The ambiance -- even with some tvs -- was really terrific. Rustic, charming. It's very dimly lit which I think adds to the overall experience (thing 1700s tavern), but some in my party and at surrounding... More

Tried Four Dogs recently for brunch. The food was pretty good. I ordered the eggs Benedict. Nothing to complain about. The building is really neat. It looks like it may have been an old barn. I like the rustic vibe inside. Service was okay.

A lovely place to meet friends, celebrate special occassions or just relax on the patio in the summer or by the fireplace in the winter. A lot of charm!

Delicious soups of many varieties as are the pizzas. Wait staff is very attentive and it is a spot for many regular patrons in the area.

This place is always my go to place for a family dinner when our kids are in town from England, when my husband and I have a date night, when I meet up with girlfriends for a get together or when we go out as a couples night out. In case you didn't pick up my subliminal msg, I absolutely... More
