The Family Dog Restaurant Review: The Family Dog offers its guests a variety of ways to eat: lightly, with snacks and small plates (we say go for the house-made pimento cheese) or more substantially with burgers (one even boasts three patties) and hefty sandwiches. Focus on those items that feature The Spotted Trotter cured meats, such as the kielbasa. Bypass the brief wine list and instead ponder the craft beer selections, many of which are notable local brews. Or better still, look at the lengthy list of American whiskey and bourbon, and savor something distinctive. Specials should get your attention, such as 50 cent oysters and $10 po' boys on Tuesday. No dessert is served. If you go when there's a band playing, be prepared for elevated noise levels.
