Wish it was non smoking

The food is fantastic. Lots of local beers on tap. The bartender was very helpful with choosing a local beer and let me sample before ordering. Staff is friendly. Prepare to smell like an ashtray if you are staying on the main level.

Stopped in for a quick brew and it was a fun spot. A handful of local beers. We didn't eat but they looked like they had a good menu. Worth a stop in.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel as a good place to watch a football game with locals. It was a fun place to hang out with friends and have a few pints.

Short and sweet, great food and drinks in a bar/tavern atmosphere. Nothing fancy here but dont ket the stting kid you. Daily specials rival the more "upscale" establishments in the area. Moms NJ meatballs are a great simple starter. Leave the office, throw on jeans and go relax with a very eclectic group. Only warning is that they do allow... More

We went in for lunch and were surprised at how busy it was. Got lucky and got seats at the bar. Really appeared to just be another bar, but the food was not bar food, and the service was excellent. Overall, good experience.

The place has two floors and it is rather dark and a little claustrophobic downstairs. The service is good and the food above average. Their sandwiches have top quality ingredients, their french toast are tasty.

Found this place by accident, it's a little off the beat and track but a local worker recommended it. He told us all the workers go there when their shifts finish. It's like being on the set of cheers but with good food. We ate here twice it was that good. A lot of people were getting take out here... More

We just had brunch here after having an incredibly bad experience at another local establishment and having to walk out without eating. We were in terrible moods after leaving the other place and just came to Bardog on our way back home because we were so hungry. This place had us seated immediately and food in front of us practically... More

Went for lunch with a friend. The server said that the chef had just spent a couple weeks making corned beef and had put in on the menu for lunch. Incredible Reuben sandwich - - - certainly one of the best I've ever had. Beer was cold and the price was right.
