"Special Holiday Hours"
We switch things up a bit this week for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Open our regular hours on Tuesday and Lunch on Wednesday...and with all that cooking coming up later in the week, the perfect time to get out of the kitchen and visit your favorite Cafe!...uh no, the 'Dog. Closed on Thursday to do some rare cooking at home, watch football and get in a nap, or 2, watch football, nap, watch football, nap...(hmmm, got to fit some cooking in there somewhere). Back to our regular hours on Friday and Saturday, a great time to hit the 'Dog...not literally of course, although there have been a couple of times MB wanted to give Jeff a good whack...anyway, a great time to stop by the 'Dog with family and friends before heading out to the malls!

"This Week's Special Fare"

A couple of good customers made a special request for our featured soup this week...New Castle Ale Beer Cheese Soup. And while we can't always accommodate, quite frankly you had me at "beer"! A blend of three Cheeses, Beer and homemade Stock with just a kiss of heat at the end...I love this soup!

And as always, we have our Tucker's Nantucket Clam Chowder. Clams, Cream Butter and Bacon...what's not to love?

Daily Specials
No Daily Specials this week, but a good time to try any of our delicious menu offerings! Our "thin & crispy on the edges" Burgers, Mary Beth's homemade Chicken, Egg (or did the egg come before the chicken) or Tuna Salad Sandwiches, and our "Down East New England" Rolls!

And as always, we're featuring our "Bark Lard" BLT as did Food Network's "Triple D"! Thick slices of our own in-house cured Bacon, fresh Lettuce and Jeff's homemade Tomato Jam. All sandwiches are served with your choice of MB's Cole Slaw or Chips and Overnight Pickles.

And lastly and certainly not least, Mary Beth's "Life's a Beach", features Goat Cheese, Red Onion, Tomato Jam, Avocado, Sprouts and Cucumber, served on buttered and toasted Multi-Grain Bread. Or if you prefer, for a little extra, add a couple slices of "Bark Lard".

Entree Salads
Mary Beth's Salad, our featured House Salad starts with organic Field Greens topped with fresh Oranges, Apples, dried Cranberries, Red Onion, spicy sweet Pecans and a dusting of Blue Cheese. A homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette and toasted Baguette are served on the side.

And we also continue with our Barking Dog's "Tee Pee" Salad. That iconic Tee Pee Dressing tossed with Iceberg Lettuce and topped with julienned Beets and homemade Croutons served in wooden bowls...a true classic!
