Red Dog Saloon Nottingham
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.
Food was ok. Service was quite poor. There was a shortage of staff and they were quite busy. The staff tried their best, however as the overall management was quite poor they couldn't really do much to improve the service. Ambience and location are great though.
Great good at great prices. Would definitely recommend to friends and come again sometime
Good quality food at a reasonable price. The feeling for covid protection was fairly good but room for improvement
Food was completely overpriced. No track and trace, didnt check our booking. Ordered burgers which were okay but sides were terrible and a complete rip off. No atmosphere. Staff clearly weren't working together, we felt like we were heckled towards the start then towards the end one staff member said they were new and couldn't take orders and just walked off. Didn't complain or cause a fuss but will simply never return again.
Having seen pictures of the food and platter we where eager to try out a new venue
Disappointed by the size of the platter
Tray did not think it was good value
Especially when we where told there was a lot of meat having paid for 2people i expected enough meat for 2
We could have gone elsewhere for paid less but had more
The burger n fries the wife had looked amazing and i wish we'd have had that
Instead wont be in a rush to return
They did make it special for the wife as they did sing her happy birthday
I went for breakfast the other day and wow. I had the chicken pancakes.... I never write reviews for restaurants or anything to be honest but just go for breakfast and have the chicken pancakes!!!
Amazing food and service. The carnivore platter for two was out of this world. Thankyou xx
Menu change from last year and not as good, confusing and everything tasted the same.. over seasoned
Food was not worth the price. There were tiny flies constantly buzzing around our food. It was disgusting
Food was below standard expected. Brisket was tasteless and lacked flavour. Staff were apologetic but ultimately not as helpful as I would have liked.
It didn’t even open when my table was booked for 10:00! I was waiting outside for it open and it never did! Terrible!
The food was amazing like Wow!! Me and my friend got the burger meal are when I saw it was so filling,the flavours in the meal were Devine. It’s not expensive the prices. The service was amazing aswell,the people who was serving us were so lovely. I’m deffo going back again.
Review is only for service as we weren't given a chance to order food. Upon arrival only one of us was able to use/scan the NHS covid 19 app. 2 diners in the group couldn't use/scan using NHS covid 19 app due to technical issues with their phones. Due to this they refused to serve us and also refused to take our personal details manually(to use incase they needed to track & trace). Please don't visit this restaurant if you are not able to scan using the nhs covid 19 app
Staff were friendly
Bbq meat: rib (singular!!) Brisket
Pork - dry, flavourless and unbelievably overpriced for portion size.
Will not be returning.
The order was wrong, the food was cold, the mac n cheese wasn't nice at all, the phillly fries was very salty.
They food was good although I asked for my burger well done and it still came out the same as my partners, pink in the middle. This put me off my meal unfortunately.
Great food, horrendous service - sadly ruined a nice meal out, and then had the cheek to include 10% service charge on the bill?
The food was very salty, and the service was very poor. A member was very rude to us when we requested the bill cause we was in a rush to catch our train, and made us wait even longer and we missed it! Won’t be coming back
Good but service with drinks slow
Waited 50 minutes for our drinks therefore we had finished our food before we even got our drinks. Asked the waiters 3 times for them but didn’t get them until we went up to the bar to complain.
We ordered cheese fries, we were given under cooked chips with hardly any cheese on so we were very disappointed as it looked nothing like their Instagram pictures. We were charged for fries with more toppings (£6.50).
Ordered two chicken sandwiches that were meant to have cheese and pickles on, neither of them had cheese and both had ONE small slice of pickle on.
No one came up to our table to ask how our food was therefore we couldn’t tell them our sandwiches were missing cheese.
The only interaction we had was ordering our food and then being the bill when they wanted us out at closing and they tried to charge us £7.50 service charge.
Food was amazing can’t fault it. But every single member of staff had their mask down their face and wasn’t covering their nose and some even didn’t have it covering their mouth.
Easy enough to find postcode took us right to the door. We arrived early but this wasn't a problem and we were shown to our table. Due to covid rules were explained and we were left to choose from the menu. A lot of choice but we chose the pulled pork sandwich and a philly burger fries and coleslaw with a side of onion rings. The burger was amazing and just melted in my mouth. Pork was tasty too. A large portion of fries we perhaps could have done one between us. Coleslaw was tasty. The onion rings were gorgeous crispy and quite chunky and the sauce was really tangy. We had a mint choc milkshake really refreshing and a strawberry cheesecake milkshake. I've never had such a nice tasting milkshake in my life. It was like drinking a cheesecake gorgeous. Staff were very pleasant and really helpful. Overall a fantastic experience will definitely return
I think it’s up there with the best service I have ever received! Food and cocktails were amazing! Really made us feel welcome and relaxed! Would recommend 10 times over!
The service was excellent, the food was good but £5 extra just for a side with a burger is a bit steep
Never actually got to eat, booked using your online service. Waited till my table was ready and entered the restaurant, stood in the door way for five minutes trying to get the attention of anybody that worked there. I actually made eye contact with several members of staff and even spoke to one who pretended she couldn't hear me. Ended up leaving which was a real shame as the food other people were eating looked nice. Very very dissapointed with this experience and bit embarrassed as other people sat at tables were staring at us. I don't think I've actually experienced this at any restaurant I've ever visited during covid or otherwise. I haven't left a review on TripAdvisor etc because it's not fair on the restaurant as I never got to eat there, but I would like some sort of feedback if possible.
Food was excellent. Took 35 minutes to have my drinks and food order taken
Every staff member was clearly overworked and underpaid and they need pay rises from the pigs up top that make them work these long hours
High quality bbq, but punchy on price. Definitely worth it for special occasions.
Sadly 1 star is the lowest I can give this place we all tried to order milkshakes apparently they didn't have the ingredients to make any i actually think they couldn't be bothered. All food was just warm, my burger the philly steak was cold sent back came back still cold and the burger was pooring blood. The only reason my second burger arrived is because someone over heard us as a table complaining that everyone else had finished and still hadn't had a burger. To top this experience off the manger actually argued with when I pointed out that food should be served at a certain temperature. When i said my burger was rare that blood was pouring out of it and she said all our burgers are served medium. No where on the menu did it state this or were we informed of this. Last time I checked medium cooked doesn't pour blood. The final insult was when they informed us that they had taken the service charge off again no where was it mentioned that there was a compulsory service charge. I've actually had better meals in mcdonalds
Was really poor. We ended up having a rare night out and didn't enjoy at all. Food was brought our cold the pork and beef. Manager was rude and said well it's room temperature....
Staff where rushed and didn’t have time to explain food on menu. Felt they were rude. Order came out wrong but food was nice
Great atmosphere and comfortable setting . Nice cuisine and great beer. Will come again
Slow service , food was poor quality and had a very limited menu- lots sold old.
Expensive for what it was I thought. Took a while to get drinks!
Burgers were amazing! Great value and really well hosted. Very enjoyable.
food was amazing!! best burger ive ever had, its expensive but totally worth it. staff are friendly & helpful too :)
Really friendly staff. Good food and cocktails were amazing!
Food came out in bits and bobs once we had our food we didn’t see our waitress again so couldn’t order anymore drinks. Food was good. Not happy that they added a service charge on especially when 1 it’s too much and 2 we always leave a tip but didn’t think it was due as the service was crap. Wouldn’t go again
Very good service recommended to anyone wanting to go out for nice food for decent price.
Great burgers and giant crispy onion rings.
Great price for a week day lunch £10 burger fries and soft drink.
