I cannot understand why they would pack a pot roast dinner into a non-sealed styrofoam container and then not even put a rubber band on it. I have called them to tell them my dinner had spilled into the bag more than once and they still do not change their containers. Also, there are never enough high chairs and they still don't take credit cards. There are 3 things I like on the menu (pot roast, burger and mac&cheese) but besides that, I think their food is overrated.

I think for the value the food and atmosphere is consistently great.

I've gone to this place a number of times now, I like the fact that you can sit and read if you have some time to kill. I just wish the food or service was better. Tonight I had the fried chicken, overcooked to a dense dry mass, the crispy batter hardly clinging to it. The vegetables were just as dry and unseasoned. And the biscuit was so dense and tough you could hammer nails with it. When I went to pay, the girl at the register never did get off the phone with her friend, and stared at me with the "what do you want?" look when I pointed out she had shortchanged me five dollars on my change. I wish I could like this place better. I wish they'd just try a little.

The food was ok, but when they charged me more for my entree than the price listed on my menu, and I pointed this out to the waiter, he informed me that the menu was wrong. I complained, and asked to see the manager who was rude and discourteous. I will not return.

What an unpleasant experience? twice! Besides diner food being overpriced, ?Umm? hello? I believe I was seated for a reason. Anyone?? Eat outside if you do dare this place, for the inside leaves you eating with the clamoring of pans ringing in your ears. Oh, and just because they fail to notify patrons of this ?tidbit? on the menu, and the waitress decided to leave me in the dark as well? No Credit Cards. Yes, they requested I go across the way and go to an ATM for payment after the check was delivered and she rejected my card due to their policy. Of course found it only necessary to allocate her tip to the machine service charge. Food was nothing to return to, especially with hiigh prices they serve with it.

I don't know how valid my opinion is seeing as how I'm not a native New Yorker. Recently, I was visiting and I went to the Barking Dog for breakfast. About six dollars will get you eggs, harshbrowns, fruit, a biscuit, and your choice of meat, and it was very tasty! Their coffee was also good, I agree about the servers being a little snobby.

I sure wish that this was a positive review because I live in the building right next door. But it seems that every time we go here we have a problem. The order often gets messed up. I usually have to ask for water refills. The food is average at best. They've tried to pass off velveeta as cheddar. (I know velveeta when I see it!) And when we complain they are a bit snobby about it. The prices are very cheap but apparently you get what you pay for.
