    Had a great dinner here after a show at the Old Town School. Good food and drinks, and not so raucous you can't have a conversation. (via Scoville) Read more

    Service and food are mediocre. Come for the big, outdoor patio and the beer and let the rest go!

    Dogs are welcome on the patio and they’ll hang a framed photo of your pooch on their Hall of Fame wall. Plenty of HDTVs keep you tuned in to your favorite teams.

    great brunch spot. best if you are willing to linger though, because the servers take a bit of time to get to you. Food is surprisingly tasty.

    If the busboy was are server the service would've been great. I was going to tip him, but the server autogratuitied us so it ended up going to her. She SUCKED, and the food wasn't anything special.

    Free Wi-Fi. There's no wifi password either. Enjoy it while you grab a bite or a drink on the lovely little patio. :) And say something nice to your server for bonus karma points.

    Lincoln Square offers lots of good dinner options at reasonable prices. By virtue of its menu’s sheer length and ample patio, Bad Dog comes out a winner more often than not. Read more
