Chose White Dog Café while on a business trip to the area, and we were glad we did. Started with beer and cocktails followed by calamari appetizer then dinners. Two chose the hanger steak, one had the scallops and bacon while I chose the lamb pasta dish. Everyone enjoyed their meals with no room for coffee or desert. Wait staff... More

My third culinary adventure here and it lived up to my expectations. The White Dog is consistently very, very good. Service, ambience and food...this restaurant has it together in spades. I ordered my usual Ahi Tartare with Guacamole for an appetizer which was amazing as usual. My friend's Shrimp Cocktail was impressive with Jumbo Shrimp and a perfect cocktail sauce.... More

Had some relative and friends around so we went to White Dog for dinner tonight. The restaurant was busy, but the noise level was better than usual. Everyone in the party selected different items from the farm to table menu. The mushroom soup was exceptional. Other hits were the chicken and biscuits, grilled shrimp salad, crab cakes, burgers, and scallops.... More

I love the interior of this place, it's fun. Food is pricey, try a happy hour or lunch first, then try a brunch. Great for an ocassion.

What a lovely place. The atmosphere, decor and location are excellent. The service was second to none, the waiting staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. The food was great, just the right amount. Will return when I am next in the area.

Great atmosphere - best for business lunches, special occasions with family, or date night. The food is very good and the menu has various choices. Our lunchtime service was quick, even though the place was packed (like it normally is).

I ordered the monk fish special. My husband went with the pork chop (his usual). We both ordered the Kennett Square mushroom soup. All were delicious.

My wife and I had dinner here recently to celebrate a special occasion. Even though we had been disappointed when we last visited (over a year ago) we decided to try again. I doubt we will ever return. We both went for soups and salads for a light meal. While I have to admit that the pumpkin spice soup was... More
