Good food and atmosphere and great local beer selection. Service was fine. I really enjoyed my bratwurst.

Showed up on a Saturday evening. Got carded at the door. It is a bar, after all. I had only one thing on my mind: hot dish. In fact, that's what I told my server, Lisa. She was really excited at the prospect of being a part of such a momentous moment for me. I asked her to suggest a... More

The Bulldog has great sandwich specials that pack an interesting flavor punch! The service is always prompt even when the bar is busy, and the food has never disappointed.

I stopped here on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch with my family. We were seated right away and a waitress immediately greeted us even though it was pretty busy. The waitress was very attentive and friendly, the food ( 3 of us ordered the Steak Salad and 1 ordered the Club Sandwich) was excellent and prices were reasonable.... More

You could take the most diverse group of foodies here and everyone could find something to their liking on the menu. It's all freshly made and wonderful too. I'm not a tater tot fan but my friends all rave about them. We go here regularly and always enjoy it. Plan a little extra time, the service is good but relaxed... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. Place was busy but we did not have to wait. Servers and other staff were very friendly. My daughter had the burger with peanut butter - not an attraction for me but she loved it! I had a decent sándwich cubano - pulled pork, ham, pickles and mustard made similar to a panini.... More

It's a burger and beer joint, but for lunch, the chef made me two over easy eggs, toast with jam and butter and a fruit plate that was Food Channel quality. The waiter was spot on and today, Spiceworks picked up the bill.

I love to try the special of the day and always have to order the truffle tots (everyone has to get their own order, we won't share :)) the La Frita is a famiy favourite. Can be noisy and the service tends to be slow.

We were just in there tonight and sat at the bar, two of us who wanted to catch up on life events. Got in just under the wire to order a couple of apps at happy hour prices (small savings, not that big a deal) as well as the start of sampling several beers. Good selection of many local Twin...

Two times over the past year, same experience: over crowded and understaffed. Sat for 45 minutes waiting to order food. Then the kitchen staff actually shouted orders out loud across the whole room instead of bringing them to tables or servers even trying to remember who ordered what. Second time I was sick all night from a medium-rare burger (the... More
