We stopped by the Black Dog by total chance. We'd just hiked Little Si and were looking for some dinner and the sign outside the Black Dog said "bluegrass and dinner". A local couple in the area encouraged us to go inside & said the place had a unique vibe but very good food and they were right. When we first walked in, we weren't too sure about it, but I believe if we would have gone somewhere else, we would have been left wanting. This place is unique - truly. It has the feeling like you just walked into someone's country home who has lived there forever and welcomed you in for a slice of pie and some music. And we did just that. We had a great dinner, heard cheerful and silly music, and had a delicious slice of marionberry pie with homemade ice cream. This place is what I would call down home and I'm glad we gave it a try.
