About White Dog Bistro

Choose The White Dog Bistro for a Southern Manor style wedding. The Bistro unites artistry, simplicity and elegance with beautiful fireplaces set in a classic 1840′s southern mansion. Windows and glass-paned doors along the outside wall allow natural light to stream-in; then if you're looking for a more upbeat and causal vibe you have the option of adjourning to either the indoor/outdoor Key West inspired bar or spacious outdoor courtyard for dancing or you can start here with your outdoor cocktail hour all served on silver trays butler-style. This is an area where we can accommodate your additional guests as well. All areas provide a sense of warmth, serenity and comfort for your wedding reception.

Choose Pavilion at the Tabernacle for a Rustic yet Regal barn/pavilion style wedding. This 7 acre property is tucked away in a beautiful wooded enclave with 7,000 sq ft under-roof and a full stage for bands; all that plus its on the Virginia historic registry too. The all wood interior has soaring 20ft cathedral ceilings. Large and spacious but still very much in-tune with nature. You can have your ceremony or reception in this beautiful salute to the outdoors. Your wedding here is all about getting back to nature, organic elements with a little bohemian flair will set the scene for your romance. Think cafe lights, a farm to table menu and beautiful wild flowers. If you love vintage elements then this is your dream location.

    I had my wedding at the White Dog Bistro in August 2018 and it was simply a dream come true for us. The venue space has so much character and charm. It was simple and just what my husband an I were looking for. It was an easy choice after viewing multiple venues, that we would choose this one. The owners, Walter and Amanda, helped make my vision come true. Walter is an amazing chef and our food was AMAZING! Food quality was very important to us and our guests raved about it! Our guests also enjoyed the specialty cocktails and wine/beer selection The White Dog had to offer. Having our wedding at a restaurant just made things easier because they already have everything on premises, which made things much more simple for planning purposes. There is an upstairs area with separate rooms, one for the guys and the other for the girls, to get ready in. The staff who worked our wedding, were so professional and hospitable.. I cannot say enough about how great the service is. We also had our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner here, which went perfect. We had a private room to ourselves, which we were able to decorate and bring in floral arrangements for. Walter and Amanda have such great relationships with vendors in the area and were able to make recommendations for us, such as Cindy's Cakery for our cake (!!!). The added final touch from the White Dog was Walter and Amanda gave us a gift certificate to come back on our one year anniversary to celebrate. This was truly an amazing experience for us and I am so glad we choose The White Dog as our venue. We look forward to returning for our anniversary.

    It is hard to adequately describe how much we love The White Dog Bistro. My husbands family has had a house in Mathews for decades and for the last few years, since my first visit, we always make a point to eat at the White Dog- the food is amazing. When it came to planning our wedding in Mathews, we live in CA, there was only one option in our mind for the reception. Mac and JC are the absolute best. They are were so communicative during every step of the process and I truly feel like our day would not have been as it was without their help. The food was above and beyond as usual and the house is beautiful. Honestly, they are so accommodating and flexible and the nicest people you will meet. We are so appreciative of them and our experience that I would recommend them to everyone.

    WHITE DOG BISTRO!!!!! That is all you need to know. Whether you are a go-getter and want to plan everything yourself or need someone to help you plan the entire event, Mac and JC have you covered. I live in Norfolk and all the Hampton Road venues were either extremely out of budget or very sub-standard. The hour and a half drive to Matthews was well worth it. I could write a review the length of a short story but I know if you are reading this, you want a concise and clear cut summary. We planned the wedding with three visits to WDB and made a dinner date out of it. Although our budget was our largest factor, WDB sold us on other things. Their food is number one. They have been awarded top food reviews in all food categories (vegan, GF, steak, dessert, etc.) and their menu is always different. So, they asked us what WE wanted on our menu. They order the alcohol in house, they cater their own to the venue of your choice OR their own venue, they are event planners, they are cake and pastry bakers, they referred us to Larry for music, and so much more. If you do not even glance their way, you will regret it.
