Not a brewpub, but some of the beers served are brewed for them by Pub Dog Brewing.

When you go to a pub dog you know what you are expecting. Dog pairs for 4$ with only Pub Dog beers. So rating the selection is kind of hard to do. They have a decent beer selection, which they expand by mixing them (actually tastes better than it sounds). Also, they have a rotational (or seasonal) beer that changes.

This particular pub dog is kind of "run down", to use the term loosely. The bathrooms are always absolutely gross. Also, the TVs are hung in awkward locations and there are not many of them. Seating can be an absolute nightmare if you get there at the wrong time. They do have a nice shuffle board, but it is difficult to get a game.

The service is always pretty good, as they intentionally hire attractive girls (who doesn't) who treat you to an occasional shot.

The food is okay, but it is a limited menu. The prices seem a little high for the quantity of pizza you get.

Beer was not great. Food was good (pizza). I still recommend going because we had a great time. Those of us who are used to top tier beer quality will just have to adjust our expectations a bit. I didn't have anything I'd rate as above average, and a couple lower, but the wait staff were awesome and efficient and it was a great place to tie one on with some friends. A couple of the pies were worth writing home about, too. They do have liquor...

I wrote a review for the Federal Hill location. This is basically the same except that the atmosphere isn't as good. It's Columbia after all. It's actually good for Columbia, but it doesn't compare to the old Baltimore townhouse feel. A lot of space in the bar though and the booths are big and can accommodate lots of people.

I went here about a month ago on a double date to get some drinks and dinner and it was great! The bar is stretched out on the bottom floor all the way across to the other side of the building. Which also gives a nice view outside to the deck where a few people were having some drinks with they're dogs. At each end of the bar, there are steps leading up to the second floor where all of the booths are at. We ended up sitting up there. Our waitress was very friendly and did a great job taking care of us! The menu is all pizza but for me that wasn't a problem at all! Good beer and reasonable prices. Also loved all the Grand Mariner bottles lined around the place! I would definitely recommend stopping by here if you are in the area.

I used to goto Pub Dog quite a bit but now don't go too often.

Atmosphere - It is a pretty open room, you seat yourself or grab a spot at the bar. Good number of TVs showing sports.

Food - The pizza is good but not great. My favorite pizzas there are a bit usual and strong on flavor. The more typical pizzas I find a bit bland.

Service - As I said you seat yourself and it is pretty casual. Servers don't come around quite as often as I'd like.

Beer - Their beer is okay but not great. Most of their list I had no interest in being ether too light or too fruity for my tastes. There are a few nice beers on the list so you won't go thirsty.

Conclusion - If I'm in the mood for beer I'll goto Frisco Grille a few doors down. If I'm in the mood for pizza I'll goto Coalfire Pizza up Snowden River Pkwy. It has nothing (worth drinking) on tap but some nice bottles.
