All around amazing....the wedge salad was surprisingly different & oh so delish. Sushi was fresh & entree size but the crown of the evening was the pan seared walleye. Don't pass this by. Best ever. Savor it. Such a cute place with great ambience. Gaylord, MI? Who knew? A rare treat to find an eatery like this.

Stopped in after a round of golf, to be pleasantly surprised by The Bearded Dogg Lounge. Very trendy decor, overall good vibes. The food was delicious. I ordered the open faced corned beef sandwich, and have never tasted such tender and moist corned beef. I definitely will return.

This restaurant would be comfortable in Ann Arbor, Boulder, or Sacramento! Very ecclectic/modern decor, fantastic servers, and unique organic food with beautiful presentation! All with very reasonable prices. A surprise in Gaylord!

I have reviewed a lot of restaurants around the country....this one is up near the top. Incredibly decorated, awesome drink list, brilliant menu, and charming waitress. I can't wait to return! Get a key lime martini!!!!!

I have been here twice now and both times I have had an excellent meal with great service!! The furniture and decor is quite unique and makes for a fun atmosphere. A little more on the pricey side but definitely worth it as the menu isn't you're typical american food. If you're travelling through Gaylord and want a bite to... More

Ok, let's be honest, Gaylord and most of Northern Michigan isn't know for their restaurants, no offense meant, plenty of local delights, but it's very rural and seasonal. This place however is a little bit big city, but still with a small town local flare. You can dine there as we have many times and never come out smelling like... More

The Bearded Dogg has incredible atmosphere. They've acquired furniture, windows, doors and other elements and have incorporated them throughout the restaurant. Very unique. But the best part is the food and service. Creative menu options like Ravioli filled with Sirloin and Prime Rib, Pan Seared Chicken Breasts with Roasted Grapes and the best Tomato Bisque Soup I've ever had. Our... More

Thu Dogg, as we now call it is a fun place to go to get a quick bite to eat or sit down and have a really good meal. It is close to I-75 or M-32. Seating is sort of limited so don't plan on taking 20-30 people with you, just the ones you really want to spend a good... More

You need to try this spot while you are in Gaylord or even take one of the exits to get to The Bearded Dogg as the 'locals' call it. It has some unique opportunities on the menu like the stuffed burger (not too sure the real name) with jalapenos and cream cheese between two patties. There are several other very... More
