Our reservation was for 5:45pm, we were seated at 6pm. I'm not a fan of waiting more than 5 minutes to get seated for a reservation. We were seated in the very back of the loud bar area at a table, more suited for 1, that was pushed up against the wall. Reminded me of childhood when we were put in the corner for being naughty. Waitress was barely pleasant. It appeared that she had more than she could handle. After she dropped our drinks off, it was a good 15minutes before she came back to take our dinner order. She did bring us bread, but quickly slammed the plates and butter down and took off without saying a word. Food was good. Ribs were very tender and partner's fish was fresh though rather small. Looked more like a child's portion. Waitress did not return to the table to check if our food was okay or if we needed more drinks. Overall, the food was good but the waitress was not and the noise level in the bar was very high.

In the past my family has enjoyed our dining experience at The Black Dog. However, my husband and I decided to take my son out for his Birthday which just so happen falls on Valentines Day. We were seated at a high top table right next to the kitchen where there was a constant flow of traffic. Our meals were served promptly, our waitress was friendly and the manager was very attentive. Overall the staff was good but the area where we were seated was a big disappointment.

Service was good from the second barkeer. First one seemed to lose interest in serving us. My husband was up sick all night from dinner and mine was comped due to being overcooked, dry and tasteless.

The waitress was great, the restaurant was clean and a good atmosphere. This was our first time here, they catered a baby shower we attended and the food was great. We came here for a Birthday celebration and were sadly disappointed. The burnt ends were mediocre. They were slightly cold and a super small portion. The pulled pork was about 1/3 a blob of fat, cold and super dry. The 3$ 1/4 cup extra side of Mac and cheese was also cold. My daughter and her friend that we brought luckily did not get violently ill from this food. My husband and I on the other hand both missed work the next day.

Great restaurant & food. Bar area is loud due to crowd having a good time, central location and a lot going on. Restaurant side rooms are quieter. We love it there.

The food from apps to main courses were outstanding! BBQ is top notch! Everything was cooked perfectly and our waitress, Bevin, well we haven’t had better service for as long as I can remember! She was outright busy and we still never felt like we were wondering where she was! Outstanding service with a smile and sense of humor!

We go to Black Dogs often because the food and service has always been great. But the past couple of times, food was so so. This last time we had a party of 5 and half the food came out cold. Sides on 2 of the orders were wrong but fixed when we told server but then charged for extra sides on bill- had to be corrected. Last visit before this, bill was incorrect as well - charging incorrectly for drinks and ribs were overcooked. We will try again because the majority of experiences have been very good.... hoping next visit is better.

This was our second year having our company Christmas party at Black Dog and by unanimous decision because everyone had enjoyed it so much. Both years the food and service has been excellent! We will be back again next year!!

We were in the new room. Which was very loud an the tables seemed to not be arranged correctly. More than once a server at another table ran into my chair or my arm and did not say anything. The food was excellent as always. Our service was good but out waiter was not present for long periods and seemed to be serving tables in a totally different area as well as where we were sitting.

This was our first visit to Black Dog... Honestly, it was SO much better than I had expected. The ability to make a reservation on OpenTable was so convenient. Although it was the Holiday Season, we were seated within about 2 minutes of arriving. The tables were set far enough apart that we didn't need to worry about overhearing everyone's conversations. The server (Kay) was courteous, friendly and engaging. Although the place was PACKED, she didn't make us feel like an inconvenience in any way. The menu choices were plenteous! Once again, even though it was very busy, the food came out in a timely manor. The food came out hot and absolutely delicious. At our table we had salmon, chicken and rib-eye steak. We finished the meal off with a good cup of coffee and dessert. It too was delicious. We have already begun telling others about the Black Dog and will without a doubt be back very soon!!

The experience was good. Our server Alex was great. The computers should be fixed to automatically comp for the happy hour drinks and apps.
I notified our server and he went back to fix the pricing. He cane back and just the beer was fixed but the pretzels were still at full price.
I paid the bill and told him the pretzels were still full price. He offered to fix it but I told him not to worry about it.

Had a party of 6 - glad I made reservations - we all tried different things from BBQ menu - everything was great. My fav was the Cajun dry rubbed wings - no offense to the "sauced" variety but these were awesome !

Very loud but food was excellent! Waiter forgot my husband’s drink, we reminded him and he brought it a few minutes later and it was the wrong drink. We did not get charged for it but the waiter made no apologies.

Our party of four was celebrating a birthday. We were originally seated in the large room to the left of the bar. There was a large party of about 14 guests seated at the long table against the wall, making it very difficult for us to communicate with each other. We requested to be moved to a table in the upper area by the windows and were very quickly moved to that area. We were able to enjoy our birthday celebration in a much quieter setting.

Got a cheeseburger. Too much grilled flavor and more than medium.
I really wish you offered more vegetarian options.
