Brewery
“Seadog is my fail-safe recommendation for a fun and delicious dinner where everybody can find something they like. It is one of my favorite places to eat. They offer classic pub food with many healthy options including several vegetarian meals. Sea Dog brews their own beer, so it is fun to add on a beer sampler with your meal. I personally love their hummus and naan appetizer, sweet potato burger, and blueberry beer! There are many TV screens to watch sports, as well as a pool table and several arcade games.”
