Thirsty Dog, not what I expected :/ I have seen the building on my drive many times, They have been open for several months and still no sign? I am not gonna give credit to the banner hanging on-top of the old Vita sign. My friends said come on ladies drink free on Tuesday, what can it hurt? I mean I cannot think of any other place that still does a ladies night.
Well when we walked in the door it was hardly a sight to be seen, with less then 10 people in the whole building, A big open space. The waitresses dress in T-shirts and cut off jean shorts were all standing around the front hostess stand obviously bored.
The Bartender was friendly, but only had a few free drinks to offer us. Beggers cant be chooser I understand, so Thanks for the Drinks!
There was one "regular" at the bar (everyone said HI to him, and the bartender was wrapped up in his loud obnoxious conversations) A couple seated across the bar in conversation.
We decided not to eat, The menu was just all over the place and couldn't decide what the Thirsty Dog Tavern was about. I think they have stretched there ideas to far, and are confused. This explains why they are not busy!
Great Food Great Price.
Great place with excellent food for the price. Tony has put the normal sports bar food items on the menu but focus more on what Tony is good at, Great Italian fare at a good price.
Nice to finally find a sports bar with good food where everything isn't centered on 20 wing flavors or burgers. Catch a game and enjoy some real food.
More Than A Dog Named Tony.
My good friend Tony LaRocco has done it again. The former Vita, Fratelli de Napoli, and Harrison's-for us longtimer's, has reinvented his place once again. Think Gramercy Tavern, for us intowner's. Much of of Vita is still alive, in his fantastic homestyle Italian dishes, on the menu. But at Tavern prices.
The rest of the menu, is straight on bar grub. But try Tony's Meatball Sandwich. With a sports bar atmosphere now, it retains the same great space as before. And expanded patio, with a doggie grazing area. Did I mention that they have a dog menu? Not just any dog menu. Singles, familys, and those on the neighborhood prowl, Tony has something for everyone.
