Met some good friends there for dinner and to visit. The food was good but diners should know this is a smoking bar. They have a good fan system that helps but non smokers will still smell like smoke after visiting. There is a downstairs non smoking dining area that opens after 7pm. This is a tavern and it seemed... More

Met a couple of friends there for dinner and a drink. The menu looked promising when we checked online and thought we'd give them a try. Bardog is, first, a bar. They serve food as well, and it's good. I had the Amazing Island Club and enjoyed it as something different than the standard ham and turkey version. My wife... More

Good for drinks and interesting options for lunch on the Sat-Sun brunch menu. Bar allows smoking, so if you aren't a smoker, you might want to try a different location

We were surprised to walk into a smoking bar but we were pleased by the service and food. Great for a late-night snack.

We ate here after arriving in memphis before the Grizzlies vs. Lakers game, around 7. Great atmosphere. Ordered sliders and a sub that were fantastic. Guy next to us ordered a plate of oysters and when he finished he ordered another plate they were so good! Lol and they did smell amazing. Great bar!

16 of us traveled together for three days and most of us hit this bar at least once a day. Nice location off beaten path. Give it a whirl as one of your many libation hits.

Don't come here on a first date but this place is such a cool place to hang out at. Tasty looking food and an impressive line of beers. We had a couple local drafts for 3.00 a piece. I'll be back when in town

We came here to eat one evening and I have to say it felt much more like a bar than a place to seat down and have a good meal. The food here was good, but nothing special, however my salad had way too much dressing which pretty much ruined it! Also the bar was freezing cold, so much so... More

We stopped at Bardog right before we left for home. The food was good and they had a couple of nice local beers on draft. Our waitress really worked hard to make sure we knew all the items that Bardog was well known for and she gave very good service. A Veggie wrap with fries was 8.99, reasonably priced.
