Happy hour central – This place is seemingly unknown so the only people that frequent are the locals. I noticed this when the bartender (no joke), knew everyone's name and drink. Then asked about their families and what not. My question is who the heck has been hiding this place, why did I never hear of it until now? I have driven by a thousand times and never thought to stop in. That sure was my mistake! Must eats: The CHEESESTEAK! It was awesome. The portion sizes are out of control and the prices are great. How could I have missed a place like this in Bergen county for so long? (They should advertise more, then maybe I would have known )The bar had a lively crowd. Everyone was eating a drinking, I noticed lots of wings and sliders going out (maybe they are the favorites). Definitely a GREAT place for happy hour! Inexpensive prices and the staff is friendly and attentive. The lighting was very dim which made it hard to read the menu. Also I noticed no one has mentioned the lady's room? It was not only clean but filled with complimentary products (hairspray, body spray, lotion etc....) Boy would that come in handy on a date...haha. Nice touch dog house!!! It is a fantastic place. I cannot recommend it enough!!! Overall I'd love to give it five stars but, the dim lighting, limited red wine selection and music level brought me down to 4.5 Needless to say by the time I left I realized why everyone was a regular. Count me in, I cannot wait to head back.
Worth the Trip – WOW, Soooo worth it ...... Next time I go I'll be prepared for the crowd (and starve myself all day so I can eat more)... They had a small dining room that was full, and limited waitress service so we just took a seat at the bar, and enjoyed it just the same if not more....
I see no one has mentioned the Philly Cheesesteak? That was the first Item that jumped out at us....
Ok ready brace yourself for this. Our order was, a Bud pint and a Merlot; an 8pc Teriyaki sesame wing app, I had the Crunch burger and my wife had the Cheesesteak.
Now I will start this part of the review by repeating previous reviewers and saying "HOLY COW, Those are some HUGE portions" I found the food to be the best (for quality, flavor and value) we have had in the area, when comparing it to similar places and food venues. The Barmaid was friendly and we stayed for a drink after dinner. I saw they had a pool table and some video games...maybe next time?
The music seemed to be provided by a jukebox, therefor some of the songs where...How do I put this...Not our taste...
The only down side we could see was if you are adverse to a bar environment than this may not be the place for you. Fortunately we are not and will be back soon.
Plain and Simple, this is a Killer Bar with KILLER food!
Believe The HYPE – BEST KEPT SECRET in the area!
The Salads and Bacon Cheese Burgers are ridiculously tasty.
What to do:
- Order a Bacon Cheeseburger or Jumbo Salad!
- Call ahead if you're grabbing it to go. This place turns busy at the drop of a hat sometimes, and it appears to me that this couple runs the whole place all the time (nice to see nowadays).
- When Ordering read the full menu it is very descriptive, I am partial to the Buffalo Salad.
What not to do:
- Never, ever walk into this place with a shirt you care about if you plan on diving into some of these huge portioned meals.... A fork and a knife are always needed.
- Don't ask for extra of anything until you've eaten here at least once, it seems that most items come with mass amounts of everything you'll need/want .
Neighborhood type bar, great place to hang out and grab a drink; but the secret is in the food..... . Every time I have a chance to stop in I have a phenomenal time.
Amazing Food & Local Bar! Worth a try! – 4/23/2011
I tried out The Dog House for dinner the other day. As a 40-something blue collar guy, I can't ask for anything more from a local place. Great food, Cheap prices, Nice people. What a great little place. It was very much your regular neighborhood bar but it had a great menu. I stayed for a few drinks and had a killer burger! ((highly recommended))
Atmosphere: Casual, Bar Environment
Food: JUMBO Onion Rings (Jumbo is right) and The ALL American Burger (listed as the best seller)
Price: VERY INEXPENSIVE (huge plus in my book)
Cons: Small Dark Beer Selection, More of a Bar than Resturant (minimal tables), as it got late it got much louder, Dim Lighting.
Final Thoughts: Inexpensive food with huge portions, cold beer and friendly staff.
I will definitely be back again.
