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

While, as its name implies, it is technically a NE locale, it actually sits on a corner right on Hennepin Ave, pretty close to St. Anthony Main. This whole area has become quite a hot spot for good eats. This place is no exception. The burgers at Bulldog NE are probably my favorite gourmet burgers in town. For a city... More

I won't compare this place to a restaurant... This is more a sport bar with huge beer choice and awesome atmosphere and where you can get a burger or sandwich if you are hungry... and they do it pretty well: the burger are really tasty and good

I went there with a friend who knows that I LOVE a great burger and she told me I just had to try this place. I like to think of myself as a burger "expert", having eaten burgers all over the country. My taste is for the basic burger, with cheese and a decent bun. Now I like to taste... More

My wife and I were shopping downtown and found this restaurant by chance and it was The Best chance we ever made. The staff was wonderful and the food was awesome. I had the El Cuban and my wife had the Pork Taco's. Both were out of this world and for desert we had one of the Bulldog's Famous "Home... More

Out with friends for New Years's Eve. Had an awesome late night dinner. The Peanut Butter Bacon Burger was really great and the fries topped it off. Pretzel appetizers and Cream Cheese Won Tons were great as well. Only disappointment was they were closing before midnight as they didn't feel there would be enough business. That was too bad as...

In Northeast Minneapolis there are SO MANY great restaurants to try, I really don't get the hype about The Bulldog. Standard bar food. Standard scene. Average service at best.

I had brought customers out for lunch and we had planned to also have some beers with our meal. We were there for 3.5 hours having an extended business lunch. We were one of maybe four tables of customers remaining in the restaurant and we were conversing at a normal level discussing work. One of the members of my party... More

Great sandwich selection but defiantly check out the Bulldog for their selection of tater tots! With games playing on the tv's and great food in front of you it makes this place a good stop with friends.
