Good Dog's tag-line of Come. Sit. Stay. proves no problem for visitors looking for a taste of Philly nightlife without a lot of hype. This casual pub excels in both simple fare and bar service. They may not promote choco-cherry-martinis, but their long list of beers is sure to satiate any thirst. If you want to add some spice to your night, all you have to do is try their Jerk Chicken Empanadas. Just make sure you don't tell the waiter to fetch.
One of the few things I did like about this place were the actual pictures of the dogs on the wall; It was kinda crampy as most Philly establishments are,but the digital jukebox kept me entertained until dinner arrived. I had the Good Dog burger I think it was called,a little pricey and on the menu it sounded good but whatever kind of funky cheese they used inside the burger tasted just really funky! Aside from that the meat was good quality and the fries were so-so...they mixed regular potatoes with sweet potatoes which I'm not a big fan of either. The rice krispy treats for dessert were o.k. also.
The Burger is surely the best menu item, but most of the food is also pretty good and they usually have decent specials. One of the ten best bars in Philly, to be sure, and certainly the best bar food-wise in Center City. Oscars is a better bar, but you shouldn't go there when you're hungry. The atmosphere and crowd at the Good Dog are pleasurable and the beer list is fairly comprehensive. Vegetarians and Vegans might have a little trouble being satisfied by the menu, but the Good Dog normally has a special or two that may please that section of the population. Plus, they have multiple floors and they have a pool table that gets largely ignored on weeknights if you are looking for a place where you can play more than one match with your friends without being constantly challenged by other patrons putting quarters down. Internet Jukebox cuts into its individuality as a local establishment, but so many places have that now that it can hardly be seen as a fault. Also, there are cute, but not cutesy, pictures of dogs everywhere, which is nice.
The bar food here is excellent. Easily one of the best burgers in the city (Good Dog Burger $10) but the rest of the money is good too. My wife enjoys the grilled cheese on brioche with apples. Also a good beer selection.

A small open air French cafe in downtown Philadelphia? Yes. Good luck getting a seat. The menu is generally Mediterranean:
hummus, olives, several choices for meat and fish, and a long list of focaccia variations. The decor is minimalist: ...
