A fun place to go

We had to queue to get in, but they have a very efficient system for getting people seated, and service was cheerful and fairly quick considering they were so busy. It’s a good fun place to go, with a great atmosphere, and someone playing the piano and singing. We had a couple of beers and a snack... read more

Good service, but very crowded with tourists probably wondering what all the fuss is about. It's a saloon, with sawdust floors, reasonable drinks, and one way in and one way out....through the gift shop.

Very busy place; when we visited there were 4 cruise ships in port and many tourists decided to check this place out. Having said that, service was quick and the food very good! To while away the short wait however there are plenty of artefacts hanging around to absorb your attention as well as some lively entertainment. Especially loved the... More

The food was very good. We had reindeer sausage pizza and chowder. The atmosphere was saloon style and every space in the building has people's names on it so bring a marker. The singer was a raunchy bar guy and there was a lot of crowd interaction. Very fun for adults who like to play along, maybe not so kid... More

The saloon is worth visiting even for those who are not into alcoholic beverages. The decor and atmosphere takes the visitor back to an earlier time in the city's history.

We were told the Red Dog was a Juneau classic and a place we had to see to believe. Not surprisingly it is a tourist joint -- lousy food, attentive service, expensive and crowded. We won't be back.

Red Dog good place to take a break from the rain! The Glacier Margarita really good, not too sweet. Hubby loved the Duck Fart shot, a specialty of the house. Drinking place, not an eating place.

Well set up as a cute bar with live music. The Duck Fart and other cute shots/drinks make for a cute memory while walking this quaint town full of lots of shops.

So fun! Eclectic décor! Fun to just sit and look around from the sawdust on the floor to the embellishments on the ceiling and listen to the great piano man. Great drinks and food. They have a mercantile attached next door for a doing a little souvenir shopping. Would definitely go back again!

Waiter was great, food was great, weather was great. No complaints whatsoever. Juneau is a spectacular place to visit. Red Dog is a must visit while you are there
