We are here for 10 days we met up with family for a visit. Dogs aren't even allowed on patios in Washoe County NV...Reno and Sparks...so we were pleasantly surprised when our friend suggested this place where we could take our dog rather than have to crate her. But then? Oh my goodness the food was excellent!! Everyone at our table was insisting what "they got" was the best ever. But I felt sorry for them because I knew my Chicken breast sandwich and Mai Tai was the best of all. We plan to go again before returning for home. Oh, and the hostess gave our dog a treat as we walked in, and there was a small bag of treats at the table as well with a reminder for "Paws on the floor". Most people didn't even know she was there.

Was in downtown San Diego today with family who had their dog with them. Googled for pet friendly restaurants. This one was close to where we were so we thought we would give it a try. First of all, the patio was wonderful. But more importantly, the food was great. Everyone at the table all ordered different sandwiches and we were all delighted with our food. I had the wild boar sandwich and was very pleased. My best friend had the seared ahi sandwich and was equally happy. So were our guest who had the grass fed beef and bacon burger, and the chicken avocado sandwich. We also enjoyed the beers, we mostly had blondes, but the mai tai that was ordered was really well received. The prices were about $14.00 a plate and sides of fries, a large one served the whole table, was $9.00. Drinks ran around $11.00 each. The food was well worth the money. The patio was great for well behaved dogs. The music was pleasant and today the weather was an amazing 74 degrees. The service was equally good as well. If you are in the area and like artisan sandwiches, this is a definite place to go. Also we saw this dessert go by, we were too full, it fed 4. Cinnamon roll, covered in candied nuts and ice cream with caramel. It looked so good.

This restaurant is cleverly built on a Victorian type house with inside and outside tables seating, to include a nice fireplace. We usually sit outside and enjoyed their New Zealand based plates. They also have a nice selection of craft beers on tap, Sangrias, and local wines. This is a very nice place to chill and enjoy a relaxing meal. You will not be disappointed.

We were actually on our way to Little Italy in San Diego and walked pass this little restaurant with a dog friendly outdoor patio. After walking on India St. to see all the Italian restaurants decided to backtrack to Queenstown Public House for a nice low key dinner featuring NewZealand food at a reasonable price for a tourist area. The lamb was really good. The craft beer selection came up a bit short on variety. The service was good. A pleasant find!

The old house is nicely decorated with outside tables - we sat outside for lunch.

The dishes were okay but a bit over the top / too worked. The salad was over dressed and had too many capers that overpowered it. The calamari came with battered fried vegetables in a too heavy batter - everything fried.

It was okay for lunch - the service was very good and so was the vibe.
