Any hounds been here? Chowhounds that is. It is apparently a dog friendly gastropub with a footlong beef dog, microbrews and other interesting stuff on the menu....im always looking for a place for my whole pack - dogs, wife, kid and me.

The food is okay to good to very good. The drinks enough to keep me coming back.
The music selection, though, is abysmal. (Dealbreaker for some in a bar.) Whenever I go there, I daydream about writing an app that allows me to reprogram what they've programmed. MILLIONS ON MILLIONS
Right next to the Coffee Commissary, which I frequent. Have had food form there incidentally a bunch of times because people I've at the Commissary wanted some food in addition to coffee. Have never really been wowed by anything I've tried there, but nothing ever struck me as awful either.
It is pretty dog friendly though, that can be a major plus if you like dining out with your dog.
I wouldn't expect to be wowed by the food, but it's probably a good place to bring your dog and grab a burger and some sweet potato fries.
if you're into coffee, the commissary next door makes some of the best in LA. And Lindy and Grundy is the best butcher shop in LA, as others have said.
Of course if you go on Sunday, Lindy and Grundy does some rather incredible BBQ (they also do daily cold sandwiches).
I've been a bunch of times for there happy hour. The drinks run from 3$ beer 5$ wine and they usually have a cocktail choice. There food is good and I think its about 5 dollars for sliders, hotdogs, and about 8 other items.. I've had their burgers and sweet potato fries. At happy hour, they give you roasted almonds with rosemary. They're tasty,too. It's solid good food with a chill vibe.
I've been there several times for brunch and a few times for dinner. If you're there at brunch, the short rib hash is amazing. They also offer some dishes (sausage board and burger) using meat from Lindy & Grundy next door. I can't speak to the entire menu, as I usually go for the same few items (short rib hash/sandwich, chop salad or the burger), but what I've had has been consistently tasty. I have a friend who swears by the steak, but I've never tried it.
The dishes do tend to be a little on the heavier side, if that's a consideration. Interesting cocktails, too. Anyhow, I'd recommend checking it out. We've brought our dog a few times and he's always happy to sit out under the umbrella while we stuff our faces.
