A nice little bar with a great vibe... Sometimes the bar gets a little over crowded... The beer selection is slightly better than that of your normal neighborhood bar, but nothing spectacular, though any Beer Advocate should find something on tap that they would consider tolerable... The service is typically better than average and the food is top notch for a bar... A very well run estalishment... A quality alternative to some of the larger more well known bars in the area... The bar decor is all dog related humor, some of which is quite humerous, especially in the men's room...

Is it possible that I've never reviewed the Lucky Dog? I guess so. It's a comfortable little family restaurant/bar with somewhat of an English pub look including an old wooden bar and a very nice wood and mirror back bar. The hexagon tiled floor isn't exactly English, but it does go back to a past time in the United States. There's a nice amount of bric-abrac on the walls; and a small, seperate dining area. They have 12 taps that rotate and a handpump, and a good selection of bottles. There's a good blend of imports and micros within the tap selection, which is nice. The food is good, better than your usual bar food; and apps run you $6-9 while sandwiches are more in the $9 range. It's not particularly a destination location, but if you're in the area it's worth a stop for sure.

My wife and I are frequent Saturday lunch patrons and always enjoy the staff, array of customers and food.

The beer is generally fresh and they consistently rotate about 4 of their taps with seasonal and hard to find beers. Every Saturday is like Christmas as I never know what is on tap. This establishment "assisted" me in discovering the tremendous beers from Stone, Rogue, Smuttynose, etc. Although many BA'ers praise a nearby local brew-pub, Lucky Dog gets my vote anyday. It is one of the best kept secrets going in the Philadelphia suburbs.

Before I hit the good ole local fave General Lafayette Inn, the Lucky Dog caught my eye so I popped in for a pint. The front parking lot of 10 cars was packed so I parked in the closed gas station lot next door. Entering through the front, and eyeballing the bar to the left, it was on!

A lighthearted interior consisting of stuffed dogs and christmas lights matches some silly wall paraphernalia. The bar seats about 12 folks. The Lucky Dog will hit ya for $4 a pint. Check out the chalk board to the right once you sit at the bar. IT will spell out the 8 beers on tap. T'nite, there was Bellhaven, Yards Pale Ale, Sam Adams Fest, Brooklyn Fest, Labatts and Guiness. If I forgot one, it is worth forgetting. There is a cold box of 6 packs towards the back with Vic'ry, Brooklyn and macro.

Last call: Could you take your Mother here? If your Mother doean't mind average smoky bars, then yes. This is just an average smoky bar. Props to the empty tap handles above the bar such as Alpha King and Rogue, but what a cruel trick. This joint needs more than Yards Pale and no good bottles behind the bar. All vino and hooch. This place should slide off BA.

Food was decent. Go to the General and enjoy a real ber experience.

Many times me and my wife drove by this place on our way to General Layettes in and said we would stop there once we did it has become usual hangout.great interior with taps of all the beer they have had on their revolving tap list since opening,some real nice ones ranging from Mactarnahans Amber to yards ESA to Chimay,also lots of local memorbilia and signs like fire jackets of the local fire dept.A blue collar crowd here with alot of firemen and police officers although not a "Irish" place I kinda get that feel.great revolving tap list right now Arrogent Bastard, Rogue Dead Guy (they always seem to have a Rogue Product)and Hacker Schorr to go along with Belhaven on nitro and a few other nice ones as well.Bartenders are always nice and knowledgable as well,food is basic pub fare with the grilled porabella panini being my personal favorite.Well its really cool place to hangout a few days a week close to the road with parking access next door also in the gas station if in the area check it out.
