Very good food. Easy to get to by car or snowmobile. Kind of an out of the way location so not as busy as other places.

Friendly staff and good food for a good price. Wings are excellent and the Friday fish specials were also very good. Drinks are well made and our waitress made us feel like family.

We had a nice time at the Red Dog Tavern. We didn't eat just had cocktails at the bar. There were 8 of us. Fun time

I had the Haddock special - large portion and very tasty - my wife had the black bean burger which she said was delicious. The food was served VERY fast - by the time we left,... More

The Red Dog Tavern is on the South Shore Road, making it less convenient for most of the people who visit the area, and yet there is practically always a line because the food is so great, the service is so friendly, and the atmosphere is so charming. Great burgers and BBQ, but also great salads. In seventeen years and... More

Made reservation, so did not wait, although the bar was big enough to do so with our party of 6. Place had flags from countries strewn on the ceiling. I thought weird, but then put there maybe for the 2016 Olympics???? Owner of bar (and major promoter) stopped at our table and told us about specials, along with t-shirts for... More

Heard from a friend that the Prime Rib was not to be missed. It didn't disappoint. Cooked to perfection and the garlic mashed potatoes were delicious. The portions were far beyond generous and we took a large portion home to enjoy again. If your in town on a Saturday night, check it out!

Every time we go by this place is closed. I heard it was hopping but apparently they don't need the business, Don't waste the trek out there. They turn you away so they can shut down before 10 pm. There is a bar in there too.

We went here on a Tuesday nite (party of 12 !!!) and were happily accommodated within 30 minutes. Went here because of the TERRIBLE reviews of Daiker's Tavern a little further away. We weren't disappointed. My only complaint was that they specialize in Prime Rib (it was even on the Specials board that night) but we're told they only offer... More
