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.
wafer thin ribeye round, american cheese, vidalia onions
espresso bbq, house pickles, onions
Impacted by outside environment, lots of smoke, noisy people. Service was very slow initially. Food- burgers with meat reported to be great- as vegetarian- one sad option which was basic, and expensive for what it was. Not for veggies - no surprise I guess but nice to have an option to join the group!
Food was good, had numerous takeaways before and have always been good. Lady taking out order was knowledgeable & friendly but other staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. Would have ordered more drinks if we could have got someone's attention (we tried hard to get their attention!!) or had check back. Covid compliance poor, even had to wipe down our own table after being shown to a dirty one and staff walking off before we could ask for them to clean it.
Overall if it wasn't for the food we wouldn't be back. More training needed for staff and management need to step up and get off their phones and see what's going on.
Food was amazing only issue wasn't the place or the food was the weather due to the cold nights it was bitter cold and the food was cold after minutes of being served they did place heaters out for the customers but wasn't very hot were I was seated but all as above beautiful place to eat
Booked a table on Saturday it was really busy but we was seated immediately unlike many of the other pubs/bars that we booked that day. Staff are so friendly and polite. Drinks are good value and price. Only thing I’d change is maybe a bit of music outside so we can hear it doesn’t have to be loud Just hearable. (This could already be happening however the time I spent there I couldn’t hear any music and was sat right near the entrance) Other than that I would 1000% recommend. I will return.
We waited an hour before our waiter was even available to take our food order. The wait then would have been an additional 40-60 minutes which we thought was very poor considering the prices we were willing to pay. At this point we left and visited a different restaurant that served us within 30 minutes. Rather disappointed as we were excited for the whole experience at red dog saloon.
Everything was good but the food wasn’t worth the amount. Otherwise good spot in general :)
The service was slow, in 2 hours we was only able to order 2 drinks. Even though we ordered multiple times, yet the rounds never turned up. The food came out Luke warm and was extremely oily. On top of this when we asked for the bill it took 30 minutes to come, and we had to ask multiple wait staff for this as well
Food was a bit more expensive and portion size a bit small but I understand businesses need to recover losses from covid, so it's great to be able to eat out again and try support local.
Great food as always, such a good burger deal in the week. We always come back.
Food is outstanding but service was horrendous, took 45 mins to be severed.
The atmosphere was nice and the service was quick. The cocktail was good but the food wasn't great and wasn't good value for money.
Arrived and was seated on a dirty table with dirty cutlery. Staff didn't ask us to fill in Test and Trace at all. We ordered the loaded fries and they were really disappointing, and very expensive for what you got. Cocktails were not great either. At the end we were charged a service charge so watch out for that. Wouldn't visit here again.
We turned up for our pre booked table to be told there was an hour wait we went home
The staff were having a team meeting in front of the restaurant, and so were unable seat us for 15 minutes... Idiotic customer care. Outdoor seating does not look Covid safe. Sardines.
Great outdoor set up, friendly team. Would book again!
Service was outstanding we had a lovely waitress throughout our visit, drinks came within a matter of minutes. The food was amazing came fast and was still hot on arrival will definitely be going back soon.
We ordered our food, waiting 40 mins. Asked the waiter where it was and he said it had been given to a table that arrived half an hour after we had. He said he would need to retake our order.
Half of the options where not available which was odd as they'd opened at 5pm and had gotten there for 8.
We needed up leaving and going elsewhere.
Very disappointing as we were really looking forward to it
One of the best burgers I have had but the fries were cold. During Covid and sat outside. Some patio heaters and nicer tables would have created a nicer Ambiance
Waited 1hr 20 for food and a drink, was asked my order again 1hr minutes after ordering so food arrived in 20 minutes which made me feel it was rushed. Chips were cold and staff were running around like headless chicken. All tables near us were asking where their food was, let alone waiting 1hr 20 for a drink. The drinks even arrived after the food! Poor service, and staff were not apologetic at all
Food is very overpriced for the portion sizes we was very disappointed. The food was just full of chill and had no real flavour apart from spice.
Drinks too 15 minutes and order wrong twice. Brought food didn’t order and insisted we did, £16 worth. Ordered the make your own plate and came out as random plates we didn’t know who’s was which, presentation was poor. Honestly I get only just opening back up but then to Add 10% service charge for four people was a joke. Had it taken off. Not recommended.
So unprofessional staff did not know where tables were who had ordered talking inappropriately to each other, loud near customers and food asp was so flavourless.
Food was nice but took too long to come. Server wrong drink also.
Awful service, with food coming out cold and at different times and staff didnt know what they were serving, asked for mayonaise and recieved ketchup. Not looked after at all
They had new staff so was bit all over place but they sorted it out fast and gave us free sides and free round of drinks but overall food was amazing and I think you should do sweet potato fries on menu too but I'll defo be back
We were kicked off our table for not ordering food as we ordered just beer we were waiting for another member to arrive but was kicked off our table
Really enjoyed the drinks, service was quicker than most other places I went on Saturday and staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you!
there were 3 of us we ordered after waiting one hour we still didn't have our food eventually my son in-laws food arrived with mine and my daughters chips was all cold the we asked again were our food was they said it was coming so we sent chips back next set of chips came soaked in fat this time still no pulled pork so we asked again they said it would be there soon so sent chips back again the they brought more chips and one pulled pork with no bun cold by this point we decided to call it a day one and a half hours after getting the myself and my daughter had receive no food worth eating
Sat outside whilst indoor eating was still not allowed. The staff all seemed quite inexperienced but were polite and friendly. The drinks took a while to arrive and the food wasn't particularly quick. One dish came out about 5 minutes after the other 3. The food itself was delicious. The pickles on the side were a perfect companion to the smoky, tender meat. I had the brisket and the pork. The ranch sauce was a bit liberal on the philby fries but it was all very tasty.
Fabulous chicken thigh burger, with mouthwatering fillings!
Our chips were cold which they swapped with no problem. Food took over an hour to come. We got told we couldn’t use the main toilet and had to use the disabled by the front door which was being used by everyone and wasn’t being attended too, it was messy and unclean, in the current pandemic this isn’t acceptable.
Great food! We had the chicken tenders with a few sides. The coleslaw was amazing. The sides are big so we had 3 between 2 of us and didn't manage to finish them off. We also had a few cocktails which were all great. The Young Cuban in particular was delicious!
We pre booked a table 2 hours before arrival. The person at the door was helpful but then the service itself was shocking. We totally appreciate it’s the first week back but one of the waitresses brought 2 espresso martinis to our table when we didn’t order them and poured some on my boyfriends new jumper - she did apologise but then walked away.
We ordered drinks immediately after being seated but after 35 minutes waiting with no update what so ever, we gave in and went somewhere else.
There was no communication throughout the visit, so we had no idea what was happening, which resulted in us leaving with nothing.
Another thing I would like to add is the price of the burgers - wow!
Lastly, you need to give your waiters/waitresses a section of tables to look after because one poor girl was running around like an absolute idiot.
Was cold as was outside no gas for heater..didn’t really get much for money someone else’s drinks was put on my table but luckily I saw I did not have these drinks
Poor service. Waited a while to be served, staff appeared to be rushed off feet even though there weren’t that many tables. Food was average at best for the price. Wouldn’t go back
Service was poor. Our order which included a pitcher of beer, two milkshakes, chicken wings and mozzarella sticks took an hour. Literally an hour. The restaurant was not that crowded too. The food when it arrived was cold and chewy. I would not recommend it.
Food took very long was overpriced caked in salt. Took even longer for the wrong drinks to come twice, and the staff were unhelpful.
food was awesome,drinks not what we ordered but first day back after lockdown so not a worrie
Great burgers, bit overpriced....friendly service
