Interurban specializes in classic American food with a modern twist. Their full food menu includes Hama Hama oysters, a big hit with many who visit. They also offer specialty salads, delicious sandwiches, and even bar snacks if you don’t feel like having a full meal.

Eat out and enjoy your time with your dog

If you're a dog lover, it's likely that you often think about ways to spend time regularly with your dog. Eating out with your furry friend could be one of the ways you can do this. However, to bring your dog with you to a restaurant, your dog must be well-behaved and able to socialize with other humans, as well as able to sit calmly and avoid annoying other patrons. If you're worried about your dog being able to socialize effectively, book a virtual vet appointment with Vetster to get help with managing your dog's socialization issues.
