Guess what? This place is in a strip mall. That's not surprising, because strip malls and cloned subdivisions seem to be the only things that exist here. This whole area makes me feel like a podling enslaved in the castle, drained of life's essence. Pub Dog is a nice little distraction. I admit I was here too late for the happy hour and left before the late night crowd, so I probably didn't encounter the most characteristic vibe.
Overall, it's ok. The beers are fun. I wouldn't call them astounding, but the mixes are interesting. The two for $4 trick is pretty slick. Ends up being a pint, but do you tip for one drink or two? That conundrum is solved once a barkeep has to stretch for something. The food seems to be the kind you put in your mouth, chew, and swallow. I don't recall much more reaction.
