We ate here recently and had a FABULOUS spinach, blue cheese and pecan salad! They have craft brew, but also mix some very good martini's here! We enjoyed the Ping Pong table and sat outdoors and watched the train go by. Love the Music Venues as well- that night Delilah DeWylde was playing and she is fantastic! We love the Old Dog- great atmosphere, good food and drink and a little older crowd, not the college hang out.

Wife and I always like the eclectic restaurants that offer something “out of the box”. We have driven by many times and have seen advertisements around for this “bar”. When we pulled in, we actually debated whether we were going to stay or go somewhere else... We finally decided to stay and so glad that we did! It is a very old building that is uniquely decorated. The crowd has a good mix of “average” people. We order the white sauce bacon pizza... IT WAS VERY GOOD...! I think it is even better after sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. So... if you are brave... give them a try! I think you will be quite surprise with what you find!

Everytime I go here, I have a good time. It can get crowded, but the atmosphere is always good. Friendly wait staff and usually good music in the evenings. And they have the old "Club Soda" sign in there! The setting gives Bells (across the street) a run for their money.

The owner took a very old historic building, added his varied collection of collectibles and created one of the most popular taverns in Kalamazoo. Several night of the week there will be good entertainment and you should get there early to get a good seat. A great selection of beer. AND , don't assume the food is ordinary bar food. The menu is quite varied. Of course, the pizza is great, but there are other selections as well. AND the service is superior.
DON't MISS a VISIT.

The
Old Dog building is really unique. The outside is newly painted and is named Star Paper. It is a bit hard to tell that it is the Old Dog Tavern. I was in on a Sunday and noticed they had a brunch menu that had some interesting choices. I ordered a burger and it was excellent. It appeared that is was made onsite not a frozen patty. They also had a nice selection of regional craft beers. The prices were very reasonable for both food and drinks.
