Good Dog Bar in Atlantic City


The newly renovated, two-story building is a dog-inspired spot featuring a hip, retro interior with booth tables and bar seating. The walls are lined with photos of customers’ pooches.


Restaurateurs Heather Gleason and Dave Garry’s popular Philadelphia eatery’s Atlantic City sibling opened in July.


Don’t expect run-of-the-mill bar food here, but you will find elevated executions of wings, burgers and cheese steaks. Small bites include creamy mac and cheese, a deliciously fragrant serving of coconut-lemongrass shrimp, and grilled octopus. There are also well-crafted daily specials, such as flakey-crust empanadas stuffed with yellow-curry chickpeas, potatoes and carrots, with red-curry yogurt aoili. For the vegetarian/vegan crowd, there’s a quinoa bowl with grilled asparagus and goat cheese, a veggie stir-fry, and even a vegan cheese steak. At the bar, approximately a dozen beers are on tap, in addition to a slew of cans and bottles. Signature drinks include tasty mocktails. 


Patio seating is available and canines are welcome. Parking is plentiful—and don’t miss the two murals on the building’s exterior. The kitchen is open until midnight.
