“Great Sunday lunch with live Celtic music was a treat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stopped in for lunch as we heard they were having live music on this Sunday afternoon, and although my food experience in the past was not as good as I had hoped this time we were very pleased with our choices! My partner had the Irish Burger and had the Chick Pea and Lentil Kofta wrap which were both delicious. I love the atmosphere at the Black Dog and they have an amazing selection of beers on tap and superb whiskies. The music was perfect for a Sunday afternoon and our waitstaff was knowledgeable and very cheerful. A lovely experience.

great beer and wine selection. Not much for those who are gluten free on the food menu.
Knowledgable waitress and everyone is cheerful. Good service. Very professional.

“Always a Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

I recently visited the Black Dog again while visiting my daughter. It remains a great place to stop for lunch or supper. It seemed that the day we were there was an "outing" day for groups of women as there were a lot in the restaurant enjoying lunch, as we were. I had the Chicken Caesar, which was very tasty, lots of bacon and grated cheese. Yum. My daughter had the Chickpea & Lentil Kofta, which was amazing.

Be sure to give the Black Dog a visit if you're in the area.

“Great Bayfield Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Great food, great ambiance, great staff. The owners Ted and Kathlene are wonderful. Whether enjoying the patio in the summer, or the warming fireplace in the winter, it's a great spot.

Always have a nice time here. Good selection of draught and good food. Really nice to sit on the patio in the summer and enjoy a nice pint on a Saturday afternoon.
