Last Thursday I was invited, along with other Nashville bloggers, to come out to the brand new Double Dogs location in Sylvan Heights. We got a sneak peek of their upcoming menu items and got to taste all kinds of delicious appetizers and entrées along with having the distinct pleasure of drinking from their open bar.

I brought my friend Trisha along as my +1 and she managed to snap a photo of me in my blogger element, a photo of me taking a photo of food, how meta. We sampled a little bit of everything they had on display, which worked out perfectly because there’s no way we would have been able to just choose one menu item. Everything looked delicious and everything was delicious!

My favorite dish was the homemade chicken pot pie, which is served as an iron skillet filled with a golden brown pastry shell that’s stuffed with piping hot chicken, fresh vegetables and a rich cream sauce.. I’m such a sucker for southern comfort foods, and this was one of the best dishes I’ve tasted in a long time. I probably could’ve eaten the whole thing, but opted for trying more than one thing and not hogging all of the pot pie. I’m telling you, you HAVE to go here and try their pot pie ASAP!

The service at the event was incredible. Every staff member that came by to check on us was attentive, polite, and very friendly. They even offered Trisha and I beer samples to find out which we’d like to go with our food. The managers, trainers, wait staff, and bartenders were top-notch with their customer service. I cannot wait to go back with my husband and enjoy their patio and watch football on their TVs.

While I was home in Michigan for the 4th, I made a stop at Vander Mill Cider with Steve and my parents. We’d been wanting to go together for seemingly forever and finally found some time during our vacation. It had been a couple years since my last visit, so cider tasting was overdue. I was also excited about taking my parents for their first time.

We opted for trying basically every single cider they had. 2 flights of 4 different flavors and ALL of them were delicious. My favorite, hands down, was ‘Totally Roasted‘ though. It has the after taste of cinnamon roasted pecans. SPOT ON. We also ordered the brussels sprouts and cornbread to share. They were both amazing. If you’re ever in Spring Lake and are craving some hard ciders, be sure to make a pit stop at Vander Mill. You won’t regret it.
