Super thanks to all 3 'Hounds who posted... you really know your stuff and in a way predicted the future.
Dovies closed three days after the final post I received.
The "my dog even had to chew the steak" was the best.
More posts to come about the Galveston area eateries that my 'Hound roomie and I have found and how they strike us - he is former restaurant trade worker / manager so we should be able to post some pretty well rounded reviews.
Peaxe and Thanks Again,
Thanks to all - the 'Hounds really know their stuff...
Dovies has since closed... those bad service / lousy food reports were right on the money.
We are now going to have the family event at a Macaroni's Grill - chain, but hopefully reliable.
Thanks Again to all who posted & warned about this place.
More posts to follow about places I've found here in the Galveston area & how they strike me...
Greetings All !
Family event scheduled in two weeks with large group at Dovies in Addison.
Any member info on menu / style / atmosphere / temperature / recommendations / avoids, etc. would be SUPER appreciated.
Family is well meaning but clueless and it would serve me well to know if I need to take a Clif Bar in my pocket or not eat for the whole day prior.
