A great venue for show casing local talent. Open Jam Sessions, music almost every night of the week. If you appreciate Blues and Jazz, Barkin Dog is the place to be.

Couples, babies, ( we had small children) younger groups ( a birthday?) and middle aged people all were here. Food was good, and the beer... More

The food selection is small. Quality is fair. We are talking chili burgers at best. They have only a selection of B grade local beer and the service is fair at best. Live music has brought me here several times in spite of the rest of the place.

I love that many nights you can find great live music, fun menu items and GREAT friendly staff! They have wine and beer, but we always go for the Hops of Wrath (Turlock) selection.

Went for lunch, waitress was over loaded. Only 1... Everyone got their food but us, they lost the order. Waited over 45 minutes for our food which when it arrived was like eating at Weiner Schnitzel. Asked if they validate parking and sure enough they did. When I used the validation it was out dated (2014). Not a good visit,... More

I apologize ahead of time if this review offends anyone.. I find nothing very spectacular about this place. After hearing so many people tell me how great it is. Now don't get me wrong.. It wasn't bad or anything maybe I hit an off day.. I'm not sure.. Any time I eat a burger for the first time from a... More

A great place for good food. Wonderful staff. Delicious menu. They have fresh, organic burgers, salads, soups, dogs and more! If you have not tried them yet you are missing out!

The hormone free beef ( try the burger with blue cheese, cherries, and bacon), fresh ingredients, and masterfully executed salads, make me abandon my diet every time I go in. By the end of the meal, I wave the white flag, and order a milkshake as well!

A little on the crowded side, hard to park but good food. Live entertainment makes an enjoyable place to have dinner. better for couples as seating is limited.

We ate here on a Thursday night which turned out to be "Open Mic". Some truly excellent music by very talented musicians. Furthermore, the food was fabulous. Burgers and Dogs of the highest standard and great value. Service was also excellent. The waiter was run ragged but remained attentive at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. I'm running out...
