“Great food a little loud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Another great lunch. Had the bacon cheeseburger with fried onions. It couldn't have been better. The burger was juicy, very flavorful, ample and done to perfection. The fries were crisp seasoned just right and more than I could eat. Almost too many choices of beer but settled on Harp on tap, cold and fresh. My lunch partner had the turkey/avocado sandwich. He said there was too much sauce but otherwise good. The only drawback is the place is loud. The place wasn't crowded and it was still loud. However, the food is so good I can overlook the noise. I will be going back.

“Dogs, TaterTots, Mac 'n Cheese!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

A fun place to eat really good food: specialty hot dogs, fantastic garlic tater tots, creamy mac 'n cheese. The beer selection is huge. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I bring out of town guests, as well as my 80+ year old parents, and we've always had a good meal.

“Beers and tater tots!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Looking for a fun, little dive bar in Uptown? Then The Bulldog is your spot. Small bar that gets filled up pretty easily after 5-6pm everyday. Great for people watching. Several Belgian beers on tap and in bottle. Good tap selection, including Surly which you can’t get at every bar in MN. If you are eating, go with a burger or hot dog, they are awesome. Tater tots are really good too. Service I have had from great to not so good, so relax and have a good time no matter what happens. There is an outside area to sit but if you are a non-smoker or bothered by smoke, I am not so sure you want to sit out there. Bell’s night is always fun too.

“Tots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The Bulldog is a fun place and has a varied menu, something for everyone. They have unique beers and great drinks. Their tater tot hot dish is excellent, the truffle oil adds a great dimension to a classic Minnesota meal.

“Great Uptown Tacky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Small restaurant/ bar with all the atmosphere you would expect in uptown Minneapolis. Best cheese curds and tater tots on the planet (or at least in uptown). If you plan to wash them down with a glass of wine--be prepared for the drinking glass, in the Italian way. The wine is very good no matter what you drink it out of.
