The Dog House Bar and Grill (former The Rock) opened its doors October 30th, 2010 and has been the place to be ever since. The new owners have remodeled the venue itself, as well as newly revamped menu that is all their own, and they have tons of great drink specials.
I’ve had the opportunity to go to the Dog House in Maplewood on different days and at different times and have always been treated well by whichever staff members that were working that night/afternoon. They definitely have to have the best happy hour in town as it begins at 2pm and runs til 8pm and you can name which ever drink you want. No cheap vodka here. They also have other various drink specials throughout the week on different days. You’ll have to check out their website for more details as it pertains to that. One of their better drink specials is their 2 for 1’s all day on Sundays during football. I’m not quite sure if this will continue after the season ends.
When I go to a bar to strictly to drink, I really don’t expect much when it comes to their food, but the Dog House has some of the best “bar food” I’ve ever had. I recently got to experience their Tator Tot Nachos were unbelievably good. Another great item on their menu that I enjoy is their Big Dog Burger, which is a 1/2 burger that is grilled along with a Nathan’s Hot Dog, bacon, and cheese on it and then topped with chili. You definitely have to try that if you make your way over to the Dog House.
I should also add that they have tons of dart boards, some pool tables, and your typical bar video games to keep you entertained. Along with great food, and great drinks, they also provide a great party experience. Whether its a live band or DJ, there is definitely something for everyone.
I highly recommend you check out The Dog House on 2029 Woodlynn Avenue in Maplewood, MN. You can check out their website at www.thedoghousebarandgrill.com. You can also text VIPOF DOG to 368674 for special deals.
