Been chasing your tail looking for a good watering hole?
New things are happening under the woof, err. roof at Dog’s Breath Tavern on Whipp Road in Kettering. New owner Gary Leasure has already set some of his vision in motion. Keeping with the dog theme, he has revamped the menu and promises even more improvements and innovations.
As for drinks, he is focusing on having beer available from every Dayton Brewery. You could literally do a brew tour without leaving your bar stool. He is working out distribution with some of the breweries, and has some Dayton beers on tap already. Right now they have Toxic, Warped Wing, and Yellow Springs Brewery beer on draught. Dog’s Breath will feature Ohio Breweries on tap as well. Click HERE for full beer list.
Gary has owned bars before and he hopes to use his experience to make some big changes. Some things to look for are pool leagues, dart leagues, karaoke, NFL game specials, new HD TV’s, and bands every week. The huge restaurant provides a great venue for live music, and a fun atmosphere for watching sports. Unofficially, one area could be called the “Dawg Pound” and another the “Jungle.”
“Shed” what you knew about this place and let us “retrieve” the scoop on this revamped spot.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— The tavern is located at 1912 E. Whipp Rd in Kettering,
— Hours are: Mon – Thurs: 3pm – Midnight, Fri – Sat: 11am – 2:30am, Sun: 11am – Midnight
— FREE POOL on Tuesday nights
— Wednesdays are Warped Wednesdays, $1 off Warped Wing pints, and open mic night
— Thursdays Trivia Nights and $1 off all bottle or draft IPA’s
— Fridays is karaoke and Saturday they have live bands !
— HAND ROLLED “PULLED PORK BONE” (Egg Roll): The pulled pork bone is served with cole slaw for “dipping.” They hand roll their homemade egg rolls. Let us tell you, this is their signature appetizer, and some good stuff. If you don’t like pulled pork, you gotta try the Ham n Cheese rolls, the Turkey Club rolls or the Reuben rolls. They are all fantastic and made in house !
— DEEP FRIED PRETZEL BITES: Yes deep fried.. This twist on a familiar favorite will make you “roll over and beg for more !” The taste is a bit crispier and the pretzels are dusted with a cinnamon spice and some soft of hot spices. The bites are served with a honey mustard for dipping that is essential.
— THE DOUBLE BUTTER BURGER: 2 burgers and a mountain of a sandwich. Here’s the secret: before they cook the burgers on the tabletop fryer, they slap each side with some butter. You can taste the difference. And cheesey? OMG they put a ton of American cheese on this one to hold it all together. Top it how you want it and go town like a hungry Rottweiler.
Honorable Mention: The Buffalo Wings aren’t bad, and go great with a local beer.
The owner promises even more good things to come. Look for the menu and kitchen to expand, and for some more unique food items and local beers.
So don’t bark, just take some bites at Dog’s Breath Tavern soon. It is a heck of a place to enjoy some adult beverages, watch some football, shoot pool or take in a live band. We won’t “hound” you any more.
