ABOUT Barking Dog Garden Patio

Welcome to Barking Dog Garden Patio, the best kept secret in Media, PA.  Hidden from the bustle of State Street you will find an exclusive dining experience like no other. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill dining; Barking Dog Garden Patio is a destination, a journey of flavors, and a testament to the magic that happens when passion meets fresh, hand-picked ingredients. 

Our story begins with Dan McKenna, a chef who stands behind the power of fresh meals and traditional cooking. An artist of the culinary world, Dan handpicks his ingredients, crafting dishes that are as fresh as they are flavorful. With Ingredients from local shops and our very own garden, every dish is a masterpiece – be it our homemade pasta, perogies, sausage, ricotta, or raviolis, everyone leaves happy.

To make sure you have the best meal possible, Barking Dog is not a walk-in business. Our space is limited and our supplies are bought per reservation, ensuring a unique and intimate experience every time you visit.

Alongside Chef Dan is Bill Strine Jr. a local business leader and COO of Media Real Estate and a partner in the Barking Dog Garden Patio. But make no mistake, Barking Dog is the main event.
