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.
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.
Service was good the team were very accommodating with the extra numbers we had, food was nice and served quickly
First time we went, it was incredible! Would absolutely go again!
Was as good as expected seen the food on Facebook and knew had to sample n wasn't let down great service
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.
Service was brilliant and food was amazing! Will defo be returning
Food was amazing. The waiter explained the menu and was very helpful and forthcoming. Made some good recommendations. Will definitely go again
The food and the staff are Unreal in this place 10/10 all the way.
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.
Fantastic place for food and drinks. Would highly recommend
Best Buffalo wings in the UK! And the iced tea gets a thumbs up too.
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
Amazing food, great service and a nice evening out.
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.
Great service, very prompt and polite. Food was delivered quickly without undue fuss. Staff attentive and helpful throughout. Food was delicious, would recommend without hesitation.
Excellent customer service, quick and nice tasting food
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!
Amazing food was delicious service was excellent and waiters was second to none!
Great trip to the restaurant , had a table booked for 9 people . We were seated quickly and drinks were prompt , all orders were correct with no long waits ...
Great establishment and will be returning
The food as always was amazing at red dog, the burgers are delicious and so are the chips and sides. Would definitely recommend this place.
Restaurant was freezing which made it uncomfortable to sit in, it was also empty with little to no music, very dead. Staff were attentive and quick but food was bland, no taste at all, too much sauce trying to hide the fact the food isn't up to scratch. Never return.
Considering they were very understaffed, the service was excellent and they were very accommodating of our small child. Food was delivered on time and was absolutely delicious.
Waiting time for drinks was over 25 mins.
Ordered 2 portion of chicken wings but we only got 1.
Pork ribs were undercooked.
Beef Short Ribs was only fat.
Very good staff- attentive.
I was hoping for brisket burnt ends but there weren’t any- also there wasn’t a variety of ‘fruit drinks’.
It was my first time dining at red dog saloon, I will definitely recommend going 😊 the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was really good. Can’t wait to go again.
We arrived and were greeted and seated by a pleasant man who remembered it was my husband's birthday and told us he'd get a dessert after our meal. After that we were left alone - no-one even took a drinks order for at least 15 minutes. The guy who eventually spotted us and served us was lovely and we were not one of 'his tables' so he did well. But overall service was pretty dreadful. Of the 4 meats on the menu two were unavailable, which for a meat restaurant is pretty poor. Needless to say no birthday dessert was offered. Wouldn't reccomend.
We have been to alot of American themed meat houses, however the meat here was fatty and when discussed with the waitress she apologised but dismissed. We wont be reattending
Amazing burgers, onion rings and loaded fries! Would 100% recommend!
Fantastic food, quick service... Really enjoyed the short beef rib, smoked to perfection... Will definitely return and would recommend to anyone!
Food was lovely, the chicken wings were amazing! Portion size was good to. The only little thing was the food took a while to come, service was quite slow even though the restaurant wasn't very busy. Would definitely go again.
First time visit on Monday, had been wanting to visit since seeing their burgers ok instagram.
Food is fantastic, burgers and fried chicken particular highlights.
BBQ isn’t a patch on Red’s BBQ but still very enjoyable.
Good staff and very nice to have waiting staff try to engage in conversation with customers for a change.
Will be back for more burgers soon!
Fantastic service and amazing food great place to eat.
