Lucky Dog Cafe, Lancaster PA | Merchant Profile

George Robb is the owner of Lucky Dog Cafe in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He took over the restaurant in 2001. As a teenager, George worked in a veterinary clinic, until he was old enough to work in the restaurant industry. He then started off as a dishwasher and worked his way up. The name for Lucky Dog Cafe came about through a late night brainstorming session with his partners. Eventually the theme of the restaurant came to fit the name. Customers bring in photos of their dogs which are hung around the walls. Lucky Dog Cafe is known for friendly service and a community atmosphere. The menu at Lucky Dog Cafe contains American cuisine, fresh seafood, and unique comfort foods at an affordable price. George says the key to their creative menu is the longevity of the staff. Most of the kitchen staff have been there since the restaurant opened. Their knowledge of the menu allows them to branch out and get creative. George says if they had a higher turnover rate, like many restaurants, they would have to devote that time to training rather than expanding. Lucky Dog Cafe is famous for their roast beef sandwiches. They are continuing the legacy of the previous restaurant by making the roast beef the same way that customers have always loved. Another customer favorite is the Tenderloin Tips Sandwich, which contains choice cuts of sauteed filet with onions and mushrooms, served with melted Cooper sharp cheese on a hoagie roll. George recommends trying their fresh seafood or one of their creative dishes. He says a must try is their Ultimate Grilled Cheese. It is their homemade crab cake, bacon, melted American cheese, and tomato, on a grilled sourdough roll. While youíre at Lucky Dog Cafe, make sure to try something off of their extensive beer list.
