"In Trouble Again" at The Dog House

UPDATE - Location has closed.  Restaurant is a different restaurant.

Mo Venouziou, Ester Venuoziou and I decided to meet for lunch to dicuss some upcoming Local events.  Several restaurants were suggested, but I wanted to try The Dog House which is located in the old Hooter's building on Tyrone across the street from Tyrone Mall.

I was pleasantly surprised when I entered to find a super-clean bar with a ton of televisions. I counted - and there are 14 flatscreens!

I took a stroll around the room and went outside to find more tables and a pool table. I love the concept of having the pool table outside! This is such a great area. We were there about 2 in the afternoon, so it wasn't busy, but as it got closer to 4, the crowd started picking up and I am looking forward to going back to watch another Rays game.  I think this is a great place for meeting a large group of people as well as just going alone! 

Once I finally sat down to look at the menu, I had a hard time deciding what to order. The appetizer menu includes such things as Buffalo Boxer Shrimp ($8), Mastiff Mushrooms ($8), Bubba's Buffalo Chicken Dip and more.  I think the next time I go, I am definitely going to Fried Pickles ($6)
Mo ordered the Southwest Chicken Wrap ($8) grilled chicken breast, sauteed peppers and onions, cheddar and jack cheese and chipotle mayo.

and got a salad for an extra $1.

(It's a little hard to see, but the salad is actually in a dog dish.)
Ester ordered the Chihuahua Chef Salad ($8) which is diced ham, Swiss cheese, lettuce, olives, tomato, cucumber, red onion, parmesan cheese, black olives and Italian dressing.

This one you can definitely see that it is served in a dog bowl!
I finally decided (upon the server's recommendation) on the Philly Chow Steak ($8) sliced prime rib, sauteed onions, peppers and melted provolone cheese. [You can also get this as a chicken sandwich or add mushrooms.] All sandwiches come with home made chips and a pickle.

They also have a dinner menu which prices ranging mostly $9 and $10 to $14 for the Pointer Prime Rib dinner.  The kids menu includes itens such as maltese mac and cheese, chicken paws, weimaraner dog, grilled cheese and hamburger. All items on the "little pups" menu are $4.00 and are served with fries.

The Dog House features live PPV events: boxing and UFC, MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL and nascar packages.  They also have Free Texas Hold'em poker on Tuesdays at 8pm, Fridays at 8pm and Sundays at 4pm.

The Dog House is located at 2901 Tyrone Boulevard. The hours are Sunday through Tuesday 11am-am and Wednesday through Saturday from 11am - 3am.  They can be reached at 727-343-1400

  1. I know exactly where this is. I have wanted to stop several times, but now that I know how great it looks inside, I will definitely stop in.
