We had a good time, and the enjoyed the ambience and the service, but disappointed in some of the food, especially the pork ribs as we felt they were very fatty and undercooked. 3 of us had these and they were all disappointing.

Service staff were attentive and alert however the food was outstanding. Go with an empty stomach is my advice. Will certainly be returning.

Though the food tasted great. It was slightly on the expensive side. The option of chips was on the small side.

Service was great quick and the waiter was friendly, asking us if we needed anything and quick. As soon as our drinks were nearly empty he would ask if we wanted another. The starters were okay, wings where lovely - however 7.50 for 2 ribs that were very smoked, normally I like food smoked but it was too much. My partner had the 2 meat tray for 19.50 and he was disappointed with it for the price we had a piece of chicken and 2 thin pieces of brisket I honestly thought it was over priced for what he got. My meal was nice burger standard. Dessert was very bland we had Oreo cheesecake there was no taste to it. Overall it was ok and if we came back i definitely wouldn’t pay basically £20 for a bit of meat and chips but without sounding too negative wings were lovely and so was my burger.

I’m sorry to say but don’t say you make things American style while it isn’t the case. I have visited the states multiple times and visited multiple regions and I never had slaw, ribs, fries,... this way. Quality of the meat was great but not what I expected since it was sold as being a restaurant with food the American style. Sorry

Been here several times now. Food and service is always excellent. Would recommend booking a table at weekends as it’s in a busy location.

All food was great and tasted amazing. Good portions. Only criticism is that my partner ordered the "3 piece" SFC chicken, and one piece was literally just bones, no meat on it at all. The server said that it's just picked from a pile of portions, so all I can advise is maybe check the chicken more thoroughly before it goes out - you could tell just by looking at it that it was just skin and bones. Shame, as the rest of the meal was lovely. - we were only charged for two pieces of chicken to compensate. More than happy with that 🙂

We went on a Wednesday evening so the place was quiet, so the food came out really fast. I had the punisher burger, would definitely recommend it. The girl who serviced us was on the ball, offering more drinks, sauces, the bill, without having to wait around.

Went for my 21st birthday with my boyfriend and it made my day. Best burger I have ever eaten meat was cooked perfect! Buffalo chicken wings were amazing. Had the nicest young lad serving us too made us feel comfortable and made some great recommendations. Will defiantly be back again in a few weeks time!

Me and a party of 7 others went to Red Dog Saloon for my 26th birthday meal and we were all impressed. Very nice classy interior and friendly staff. Excellent food if you like American BBQ and a great selection of American craft beers on tap. I had the Bacon Cheese Deluxe burger and chicken and bacon loaded fries and it was all excellent. However, I might opt for either the plain fries or a different type of loaded fries next time as I was so full after my burger that I couldn't finish them! The burger itself was super juicy and absolutely delicious and I would absolutely recommend it to any burger lover. Overall we were very satisfied with our experience and will be returning at some point in the future.

Service was prompt and staff were friendly. Nachos came very quickly and weren’t hot enough, maybe they had been sat around and not prepared freshly. Both burgers were tasty, very good. Overall service and food was good. Shame about the nachos.

Been once before, came to show my girlfriend how good the food was and we both left extremely full and satisfied. We both agreed we’d get a train from Chester where we live just to eat there!

I am so sorry to say it was AWFUL and we were really looking forward to it, we love America and we lived in the states for a while and really would be on the face of it your perfect customers but I am afraid it was a let down in all departments the first thing about American hospitality is the friendliness, this was completey lacking, the owner said on the you tube ad that he wanted to be the best you have ever tasted well it was among the worse, I am a massive fan of ribs....they were tasteless, my daughter had a chicken sandwich and it featured a sopping wet bun.. the waitress was ok the guy that worked there was disinterested verging on rude and I would have thought Red Dog Saloon would suggest country music....but just chart/dance music.

Good food and the price is quite fair. Staff all seemed a bit lost however and didn’t bring out part of our order and took a while to get someone to bring the bill over even after asking - understandable if it is full but there was only a handful of tables in

If you want good all-American food then this is the place to go. But don't bring a vegetarian as there is only 1 token dish for veggies! The food is tasty and plentiful but it's all hugely calorific and definitely not very healthy. Ideal for teenagers. We had great service and the cocktails were nice.

Like that you get to select which bbc sauce to put on the meat. Could use an explanation about the differences in sauces. Meat was a bit fatty. Onion rings were good.
