Award Winning Favorites Plus Seasonal Selections

The “Wine Down Bar” and “Bistro” bar are famous for refreshing selections designed for sipping on the Patio with a mix of music picked to wind down and relax to.  On those chilly nights we have a great selection of “cozy up to the fireplace” cocktails while listening to Frank, Loius, and Ella.  It’s all part of what makes The White Dog Bistro Bar and our patio “Wine Down Bar” one of Coastal Virginia’s “Best Bars” with “Best Cocktail Menu” and “Best Outdoor Dining” as voted for by our fans who just know, who get it, who don’t need a night club to relax and chill.  It’s Mathews, it’s why you’re here.
