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.

This was our 1st visit to red dog. The food was amazing. We will definitely be going back. Charity was our waitress, she was lovely. Food was a little more expensive than we would normally pay, but the quality was better. As a table of 2 we were surprised to find a 10% tip is automatically added to the bill.

The food tasted pretty good but felt the portions of meat for the money were not enough. The reason I wouldn’t recommend is because I had a really bad stomach within an hour of finishing my food

We had a lady called Anna serving us and she was fantastic. When we arrived they accommodated our daughter with a high chair and space for the pram which was great. All the staff were lovely and friendly, but Anna was brilliant with our daughter. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic.

Great food and atmosphere as always! Can't fault the service here, making us feel welcomed every time. Fantastic food and drinks, definitely recommend the ice tea and unlimited chicken that happens every Wednesday.

Went on a Saturday night and really enjoyed the food. Drinks were priced fairly and a good variety to choose from the menu. The food was served quickly, drinks took a little longer but overall it was really nice and would definitely go back again.

A little bit on the pricey side, expect to pay 12-14 for a burger and at least another 4 for a side of fries. 6 of us were cramped round a pretty small table when others were available as it wasn’t particularly busy. That being said, one of the best burgers I’ve had in Southampton, meat was perfectly cooked and well presented. Would recommend and will be returning in the future.

We were here in Feb and were a little disappointed with the service. However, we love the food so we came back this weekend and the service (and food!) were excellent. Glad we came back.

I was impressed overall. Great food choices & meats were delicious. Kids were entertained with colouring packs. Good choice of Drinks. I did think the prices were quite high but I would still recommend your restaurant & would go again. Lovely surroundings & atmosphere & our waiter was very nice & polite & engaged in conversation with us all.

Took a long time for drinks and food to come. Messed up one of the drinks, wrong topped fries brought out, southern fried chicken over cooked, after already sending back the fries couldn't be bothered to send back the chicken, didn't enjoy it as much as our first visit so will not be going back or reccomending to a friend.
Very loud could barely hear each other talking.

The only thing that let it down was the state of the toilets 2 were unusable and according to my husband so were the mens. Also we booked for my husbands birthday. Waiters sang for other birthdays but not for my husbands. Which I thought was wierd but other than that was a lovely evening

Food was rubbish, no flavour and not worth the price tag at all, such a shame as have previously had good meals here, service was rushed and they also added a service charge onto our bill even though there was only the two of us. We won’t be returning anytime soon.

Seated very quickly (on a Saturday evening, which is very impressive)

Waiters were polite

Food came out quick

Food was good - had the 2 plates

Brisket - fell right off the bone, enjoyed
Beef short rib - little bit fatty, to be expected, but good
Brisket mac & cheese - bit of a liquid texture but good
Onion rings - bit crispy but good

No complaints, but not outstanding. Would recommend

I had beef short rib and it was really good. My friend had brisket and was quite disappointed. It was tiny in comparison and a third of it was fat and gristle.
Overall the food was good and the service quick.

The food was excellent as usual and the wait staff were wonderful too. They were happy for us to bring our own birthday cake for our son which was very kind. The only small point was that we would have liked to eat outside and that was possible but we couldn't have full table service - we were a table of 8 and too many to order at the bar so we had to sit in. Overall though it was a really lovely experience.

This was our second visit and we really enjoyed the food once again! Our first server was very good but then disappeared and was replaced by someone else, obviously due to a shift change, who was not at the same standard.

Group of 5 of us were seated in a booth style table this was too squashed therefore the waiter kindly offered to move us to the table at the back of the restaurant, this was uncomfortable due to the table legs, unable to stretch legs. No peach flavoured iced tea available?! No brisket croquettes available?! quite surprising for a Saturday evening. Placed our order didn't have to wait too long. Why do you have to put melted butter on the buns? hands were really greasy, had to use a knife and fork.

Had a delicious meal with a great friendly service. Waitress was never to far away for another drink or anything else. Without being over the top.
Will definitely be going back again... Fantastic
