We came around 1:30 PM, after the lunch crowd had dissipated. Decided to try Bulldog because they had some craft beers I wanted to try. Actually the excellent service here, along with the great food and varied selection of beers made this one of our best casual dining experiences in Minneapolis. An excellent, custom-made cheeseburger done perfectly medium -rare for... More

We went to the Bulldog for lunch, we were greeted immediately by the bartender and seated, she was very friendly and accommodating. She explained the specials and soup of the day without us asking! All our food was excellent , Chicago style hot dogs, Reuben , pulled pork sandwich , and BELTA, bacon egg lettuce tomato avacados were all very... More

Good beer selection. Low ceilings. Visited on a Saturday night. Loud. Poor acoustics. Local flavor. Street parking. Loud bass.

Enjoyed the steak & romaine salad. It was worth the wait, which is saying something. I was in there on a fairly slow day; so, I was surprised that the kitchen couldn't get the food out in a more timely manner. The server was nice and kept our glasses filled, but I thought I'd float away by the time the... More

Visited for the first time. Typically first impressions at any place you visit is everything. The server didn't care much about servicing anyone. Waited 15 mins before we had to flag someone down to get our food order. The food is great so there's that! Decided to play golden tee and put $20 into the machine and played a full... More

This used to be a place I loved to hang out at when I used to live in Minneapolis. Visited there yesterday. They improved their menu and the drinks list, but the service was... Just bad. The waitress tried being nice, but the dish I got was not something close to what she had described. It arrived in like 2... More

The Bulldog is really nothing special. It's packed with loud and drunk people and it features a metal cage fro smoker. It's neither appealing nor enjoyable in any way. It is quite irritating bar.

The food was ok but simply not worth the price. The burgers were dry, the fish was greasy, the homemade fries were pretty good. What we did like, though, was the fabulous beer selection. If nothing else, go there for the beer.

Let me start by saying that I really like the Bulldog. They have a great beer selection and some pretty good drink specials. Their burgers and sandwiches are great - just stay away from the Nachos! Red & blue chips smothered in extremely salty seasoned ground beef...then smothered in that white plastic cheese...the kind of plastic cheese whose flavor sticks... More
