I come to Lost Dog for the beer selection. This location has 23 taps, with usually noire than 2-3 more "standard" brews in the draft list. Even if I'm not a fan of all the offerings, I can't argue with the fact that I can usually try something new.

There is a bar area and a restaurant area. The bar area seats about 20 at the bar, 20 at tables around the bar, and (weather permitting) outside seating (someone else will have to rate the restaurant area and service). There is a "garage door" that opens the bar to the outside when appropriate. The atmosphere is laid back, and most patrons realize you are here to try good beers.

The food is pizza and sandwiches, salads, and some appetizers. The menu is no different than the other 3 locations. The food and pizzas are solid, if a little on the expensive side, and the selections are numerous.

I usually sit at the bar, and the service varies, but there is usually no rush. I would love to argue that the service is a little slow due to the alcohol content of a fair number of the offerings, but it's probably just a little slow and there is usually only one pourer for the bar and restaurant. It's just average. Edit: service has improved a bit, but we have become recognized as regulars, so that helps.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are nearby and want to grab a beer and a quick bite.
