Blue Dog is the type of place you go to on a Sunday morning and all of your neighbors and possibly your insurance guy are there too. A neighborhood drinking hole through and through, Blue Dog has become a local favorite for their great patio, good food, and excellent service. The TVs are all in the main bar area for prime game watching but there’s plenty of outdoor space to clear your head after your team blows it in the 4th once again. They’re also extremely dog-friendly.
