American
Red Dog Saloon 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.
Barbecue 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 smoldering 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 flavor, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 18 hours.

Ran out of rum and bourbon we wanted. Burgers were tasty but no bigger than burger King burgers and definitely not worth the money. Keylime pie was awful. Service was great but WILL NOT WASTE MY MONEY AGAIN.

£17 for two cocktails was an absolute rip-off, £8.50 each and gone in a couple of sips as the glass is mostly ice. Food was good, staff were nice - they do add a service charge to the receipt without any mention of this on the booking or menu which can bump the price up quite a lot if you are also ordering drinks. We were also seated right next to the bar, which was fine until staff members were stood within inches of us with their backsides to us whilst trying to eat because they were reaching over the bar or having a drink themselves.

Food very nice but I bought chicken platter and two carnivores platter not a bgreat deal of food for the money , so had to add extra ribs and chicken tenders would be better value if fries etc were included but at additional cost , poor value for money but food was nice , glad I tried but would stick to burger in future if came back

Great food and very good service. Bit on the pricey side but was a good night out. Very noisy with the change in music and general crowd noise. Not really pleased about automaticaly adding 10% tip to the bill. Would have given more in cash without it being added on.

It was nice food, kind service but it just seemed the tables were sat very close together given the current guidelines. There defiently was not a 2 meter distance between us and the table behind us.

Our waitress was lovely and really helpful !
The food was good but my partner was disappointed that they have stopped doing the bigger platters .
Our coveted fries were barely covered but still tasted nice

Had a lovely family meal at red dog in Southampton. The service was okay but asked one member of staff for something and it never arrived. Food was lovely as always. The only thing we didn't like was that the music was quite loud so was difficult to have a conversation. There wasn't much social distancing either so if that is a worry for you I wouldn't recommend. Food is great there though so would highly recommend

Food was great, lovely burgers. Service was a a bit slow and at one point had to wait about 15/20 minutes for a drink to arrive. Overall, good atmosphere (music was quite loud).

The food was lovely and our waitress was very attentive however the burger was luke warm, rather than hot. I would still go again and just hope that was a one off! :)

Flat coke. Sent it back once and got another flat one back.
Both my partners and my burger was really watery.
Music too loud which lead to everyone shouting so we couldn’t even hear each other. And everyone was too close together

Was pretty let down with quality of the food. Especially the chicken wings. The Instagram account makes the food look better than it actually is.

First time going to red dog saloon and I had high expectations as i heard good things, unfortunately I wasn't impressed at all the food wasn't up to standard in my opinion, the onion rings were raw on the inside, and the burger was dry and over cooked in my opinion we orderd mozzarella sticks and there were over done and oozing everywhere when we asked our waitress for a refund she said she would ask and come back but she never did so I ended up paying 90.00 for a meal which in my opinion was not worth the money

Our waitress was lovely but not very helpful regarding the refund don't think I will be returning any time soon. Unfortunately

We went for a meal to celebrate our sons 13th birthday. It was a lovely evening, the staff were super friendly and attentive. They made my son feel special on his birthday when they carried his cake out and sang Happy Birthday. The food was incredible and was excellent value for money with big portions. Would 100% reccommend.

Great food, great service, prices are a bit high and they had air conditioning on which was unnecessarily cold. Other than that, we loved dinner.

Front doors were fully open and seated at the front. Very cold.waitress wouldn't move us. Food got cold quickly. Staff didn't know what burgers were for who so we had to sort out between ourselves. Been to red dog a few times but this was by far the most disappointing.

The food was amazing and the staff are so friendly and welcoming, I always go here when I take a trip to Southampton, recommend it to everyone that asks me where is good to eat. Only down side I'd say is the tables seemed a little crowded together and half the restaurant was empty but everyone was grouped in one section.

Waitress was over the top and didn’t know the difference between lager and beer(ale) and service charge was added without asking and was far more than she deserved

Works out quite expensive as have to order things like fries separately. You pay £13-£17 for a burger and that is just it not even a little bit of salad on the plate. Be careful about the hidden service charge too. Got £10 added to bill with no warning. Staff did resolve bit whilst waiting by my table I was ushered away by another waiter so they could sit another group at it. Not very good service.

Wad too loud and too busy considering we are still going through a pandemic. Also noticed tables being wiped down but chairs were not and people were just being rushed in and out.
