“Poor service, poor food preparation and presentation, great drinking hole!”
Reviewed March 4, 2009

I have been familiar with the Bulldog for twelve years. When it was in the KM building, it was actually a world reknown establishment. Now that it is in the West Coast and has been sold by it's original owner, it is a poor representation of the Bulldog from it's glory days. The service is horrible, uncleanly, unfriendly, uneducated, immature, slow, and no work ethic having servers run ammuck. The bartenders are inate and often rude, and the food is better across the street at Frugals Fast Food! Not a value, not worth being considered for a place to consume food, but it is a great and inviting place to drink with 22oz beers flowing like a mountain spring, 2 for 1 happy hours with free appatizers, and a home town, good natured crowd!

“Best Steak Around!”
Reviewed October 1, 2008

Unbelieveably great steaks and fantastic service. Don't be fooled by the "casino" part; it's just a separate little room with a few gaming machines that you don't even notice. They also have a 2-for-1 happy hour every day at 5.

“slow service, ok food, dirty rest rooms”
Reviewed January 1, 2008

the last time i ate here, a group of us went for lunch from work. the service was really really really slow. the food was ok, not great, not bad. the thing that really turned me off from ever going back was not seeing all the brown stuff smeared all over the outside of the toilet bowl until after i sat down - gross! the bulldog was a kalispell favorite at one time - it has gone downhill considerably since then. not worth it.

“Bad, Bad, Bad! Service, Food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 7, 2006

You are served by inept (at best) young girls, bad tempered bartenders, and food complaints fall on deaf ears. Food is horribly overpriced as well. Don't waste your money or your time because the average drink order takes 15-20 minutes, if you are lucky enough to even get someone's attention in the first place. And you don't want to see who is cooking the food. The Bulldog from days gone by (when it was located in the KM Building) no longer exsists. It should be called "The Dive at the West Coast".

“Ummmm......Good Happy Hour”
Reviewed March 24, 2006

The only good thing about this resturant is the happy hour all drinks are two for one and service is usually pretty good. The food is another story. I can't understand why so many people are under the impression that this is a good steakhouse. I ordered a filet mingon and was brought a piece of steak topped with bacon bits! The food is poorly presented and poorly made. There are not many menu selections and it is consistantly bad.
