I have been to Seadog many, many, many times! It opened while I was living in the area and I still come down from the suburbs when I'm having the craving. I took off one point because of the consistency. I have gone for dinner on some nights and it was just off. However, these times have been... read more

Really great sushi and its not too pricey! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because we were seated outdoors, which was great, but a rat got into the gated area and was running around freaking everyone out. Its because there's a dumpster located right on the other side of the gate and it was in... More

I'm usually sooo picky about eating fish not locally caught (the taste, not going into a detailed tangent now) but Sea Dog really prepares it in the most deliciously amazing way! My roommate used to live half a block away and we truly miss the proximity. I visited tonight for the first time in awhile and as always the food... More

Visited last weekend. Sushi was great but the rolls seem to have several fried options. The menu was neat since it was more of a picture menu-definitely unique. This could be a romantic setting. Edamame was also terrific with the right amount of salt. Huge plus is BYO :)

Great service, lovely food and great ambience. Coming from Perth I found the prices reasonable and definitely felt that there was great value eating here. We came in late for lunch and ordered the bento box and will definitely be back to try all of the sushi. They have a great range of sushi and sashimi.

Great sushi restaurant. Prices are a little expensive but normal for sushi in Chicago and BYOB makes it a little more reasonable too.

Thanks to my sleuthing on Yelp, I found out that you get 10% off for cash payment, so prepare accordingly. ;) This place is BYOB, which I guess is typical of sushi bars in Chicago... and the staff was totally prepared with wine/beer glasses and ice buckets, even opening our bottles and pouring our drinks for us. It was totally... More

The staff were very welcoming on this first visit to this Japanese restaurant not far from the "Division" subway station. This restaurant set on a corner has a warm feel about it and would be ideal for a romantic candle lit Japanese meal. The Teri Yaki chicken I had was delicious with a nice sauce. Of course, there is sushi... More
