We have been here several times. We really like their pizza. Each day has a different special. Great $1 burgers on Mondays. Specials on chicken wings, pizza, chicken tenders and various drinks throughout the week. Highly recommend.

A loud bar environment, with good food and cheerful wait staff. Lots of draft beer, pub grub and TV s in every area. We had burgers, five of us and five different varieties of them. All were attractive, well presented and very juicy. Waitress was very attentive, but not intrusive or pesty. We have been three several time sneak it... More

If you like to watch sports and drink beer this is your place. Food is good for a sports bar. Remember it is a bar and can be noisy. They have high top tables and booths. There are different specials on different days. We like the Friday all you can eat Fish Fry. They carry 3 Floyds beer on tap.... More

We came for dinner, not drinks, and we were sorely disappointed in the chicken pot pies we both ordered that the waitress said was good. Ours came out so overcooked it was literally black on the edges, and mine tasted funny like tuna fish. Next time we will try something else.

We come here a couple times a month for dinner and a wide selection of draft beer. Thursdays are best for $2.00 drafts and cheap chicken tenders. But we like the burgers and wraps too. There are lots of tvs if you like watching chicago sports. They always have the sound on for the Blackhawks.

We eat dinner at Bulldog's a few times a month and always have a really good experience. Good food and fast, friendly service. Get there early on game nights because it fills up fast on big game nights. We love the specials and usually end up doing that for dinner. Build your own burger night is my favorite.

Ordered for takeout. It was ready in 15 minutes. We picked it up a couple of minutes early. Food was just as delicious as if we dined in. You cannot go wrong with their burgers!

This used to be a fun place to bring the family. Now it's a bar trying to be a restaurant. The bar's a great place to watch a game, but the service on in the dining room is horrible. It consists of some high school kids more interested in seeing their friend than helping you. Had to go to the... More
