American
Red Dog is an authentic American BAR-B-Q restaurant, serving 18-hour roast ribs, brisket, aged chuck steak burgers and much more, all best enjoyed with tasty cocktails or milkshakes.
Barbeque grew up in the South of the USA where cooks learned to slow roast cuts of meat over fire pits to make them tender. Exposure to the smoke of the smouldering wood added a distinctive smoky and juicy taste to the meat. Our award-winning smokers have been imported from the USA and are built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We use the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 18 hours.

This was my first time eating at the Red Dog Saloon and I was very pleasantly surprised.

The food was excellent, although not cheap; at approx £11 - £13 for a relatively small burger with no fries, salad or garnish of any kind.

Our server was fantastic! She was polite, efficient and really helpful when we were ordering for the first time - she really made a big difference.

Ambience and choice of drinks was very good.

Friendly staff and a fun, creative menu of all things American. I had the southern fried chicken which was juicy with crispy skin and my wife had a BBQ brisket sandwich which she really enjoyed. Good selection of beers from the US and cocktails as well

The best bar-b-q in Nottingham! I had the Carnivore Platter which comes with beef short rib, st. louis pork ribs, smoked southern sausage, buffalo wings and beef brisket. Really good food and attentive, friendly staff

We came for the platter that had been advertised. Once we tried to order it they didn't have any BBQ meats. So we stood up and left.

Poor service, there was no rose wine on a Saturday night and no bbq meat left at 7.15 due to a table cover of 15 allegedly!! The manager was rude and took our drinks off us when we declined the Indian menu. Will not be visiting again.

The food was tasty and staff were friendly however the service was very slow. Some of our order was also forgotten so we had to ask for it again.
Overall, nice enough but would most likely choose a different restaurant next time.

The chicken wings used to be delicious and crispy skin, now slimy and some were cold. Burgers were still good, but may go elsewhere in future. What a shame.

Red Dog Saloon is one of our preferred restaurants and dining there is always a good experience. The service is up to high standards, welcoming staff and happy to serve you. The food is always good and we know from previous visits that the chef won’t allow something of less than good quality to be served. Good selection of beers and cocktails too. The menu items are well priced and the portions generous, and if you have any leftovers the staff will happily hand you take away boxes. It is recommended for a date night but also other occasions such as birthdays, graduations, etc.

We enjoyed out trip to Red Dog Saloon Nottingham, having been before, I was familiar with the food, my guest, however, was not.
We both enjoyed our starters and our main courses, leaving no room for desert.

Unfortunately during our visit we found that our Servers did not seem to communicate with each other whatsoever, leading to us being asked the same things such as; "Would you like to order drinks?", "Would you like your Table / Plates clearing?", "Would you like the bill?", multiple times. Furthermore to this we were seated in a booth opposite of the bar which led to us being located in an extremely noisy, and annoying environment - Due to the noise created by the member of the bar staff making drinks.

We would return to Red Dog Nottingham however we would suggest not sitting near the bar and also hope that the wait staff do, in future, communicate more effectively.

Really great welcome on arrival. Friendly staff. Food was amazing. Great value for money. The restaurant is split in two sides. One side is the BBQ side and another is the Indian side but they allowed us to order something from both sides. Great value for drinks and food selection. The only minor point, and this is just my preference, the table we sat at in the middle was very dark so struggled a bit to read the menus. All tables around the edge have lights over them but the middle ones don't. Other than that, I will be coming back again

A real disappointment , sadly the smoker was broken (which can’t be helped) however we weren’t informed of this till we had been looking at the menu for at least 5 minutes. After deciding to stay for a burger, when it arrived we wished we hadn’t it was terrible in both presentation and taste with a side of over cooked chips. To make matters even worse our starter then arrived after the main. The manager clearly had zero experience of customer service and couldn’t get his head around why we wouldn't want our starter after a man in course, however he still had the nerve to try and add a service charge to bill, never again.

Food was poor quality. Clearly had not been slow cooked. Meat was fatty and tough. We sent it back and went elsewhere.
The waiter who we complained to was very apologetic and the staff seemed friendly in general but would not go again.

Absolutely fantastic ! I had a Ruebens burger and can honestly say it was the best tasting burger I've ever had, my partner had ribs and wings and they were amazing. Excellent portion sizes too, you need to go there hungry! Staff were so helpful and friendly. Can't wait to go again !

Great food! I got exactly what I wanted and I was even encouraged to make any changes I wanted to my burger. They made it very clear that if I wanted it, they'd make it happen!
Four of us dined. 2 of us were returning customers for another great experience (and we'll go again), and it was a first experience for the other two which didn't disappoint. All four of us had a great meal.

Having been here before I knew what I was in for. I booked on the day for my anniversary. And we were both very impressed with the food here. Starters were a good size for two and the we stuck to what they do best, by having burgers! Melt in the mouth!

We arrived not long after opening to a mostly empty restaurant but waited a long time for our food. The menu is quite limited and when the food arrived it was almost cold. There was also a baby crying loudly and constantly for the majority of our meal and it sounded like it was in a back room and not belonging to a customer.

Very disappointed with the food. absolutely nothing compared to instagram pictures.
There were 4 members of staff for the restaurant AND the bar. No where near enough. The one member of staff who was female was very rude, dismissive and unhelpful to be honest. Looked around when she was serving us like she had somewhere else she would rather be. Generally disinterested in her job. Shame really

Went here for a meal, we ordered the meat platter, almost all the meat was dry and flavourless out of the 6-7 different meats we ordered only 1 was of a decent enough standard.

The service was also poor, we constantly being bombarded if we were ready to order when we first arrived and they were very unhelpful with helping us decide what to order, I then ordered a second drink once the food had arrived and it was just sat on the bar for most of the time.

Safe to say I will not be going back

This place is amazing!! The staff were lovely and always checking to see if everything was OK. The food was divine! We had starter, main and dessert and couldn't fault any of it.
I had the Saul Goodman sandwich which had beef that melted in your mouth and my partner had a big red and he said it was the best burger he's eaten.
The unlimited iced tea was a dream, we both had the lemon which was really tasty.
We couldn't fault this place at all. I'd definitely recommend it.

I booked Red Dog Saloon for my other half’s birthday lunch as she luuuuurves the meats. She had the short ribs (I think that’s what they’re called) and was very happy! I had the Hickory burger which was huge and delicious.

The staff were really friendly and accommodating and the meal was very good value. I would definitely recommend this place (ideally centrally located near the lace market) and will certainly be back!
