We ordered 2 salads and wings. The wings were very good. The salads were pre made and the lettuce was very bitter. It was to much for one person to eat. There was a female playing a guitar and singing. It would have been better if there was a band.

Great meatball sandwich. Chicago beef is good too. Stop for lunch or dinner and it won't disappoint.

Stopped in for a drink and was delighted to see the owners dog she is a beautiful girl. All staff friendly even though it was so busy there was nowhere to sit. The pizza is good and smells amazing.

Better than the array of tourist shops along the Avenue would suggest. Comfy Old West atmosphere even though you order from a window and take a number. I was just here for lunch, and I just had a meatball sandwich, but it was a very good meatball sandwich. Much better than a chain sandwich shop. Looks as if the music... More

On business in town and was told this was a great place to eat for lunch. And it was. The pizza and wings were great. They have a nice bar / saloon too. It's the first time I've been in a little town like this. It's cute.

That was great, stopping into the Red Dog as well as giving our little town a shot! Just don't tell to many or we will become a big town! Thanks, Loren More

The atmosphere was appropriate and the beer was cold. They even knew how to make a Caesar. Dog friendly, with clean well appointed washrooms. Interesting decor in keeping with the locale.

The Red Dog Saloon had very friendly staff and the pizza was awesome. The Pork-n-Mary Bloody Mary is an awesome version of a Bloody Mary with Bakon Vodka. We were there during the Camel and Ostrich races and it seems to be the hangout during that event.

We stopped here for lunch on 09/14. This is a walk-up order restaurant on one side and a bar on the other. After paying for your order, you are given a number and the server brings the food to your table. When we were there, it was crowded and noisy, but that gives it a lot of atmosphere. We ordered...
