Comfortable, smaller place but don't miss out on The Black Dog... only a few tables outside. Good food, well stocked bar!

Went over the weekend and we arrived after they had just been slammed. This is a very popular local spot so reservations would be a good idea. I can imagine it is pandemonium during the busy summer season. Great burger and excellent drink selection. Fish and chips were fine, but a little sweeter than I like. Definitely worth a visit!

Each of the meals ordered on a Friday night was served in good time. Vegetarian dishes are available. The vegetable curry was pronounced to be very good as were the fish and chips that were ordered by another member of our party. I had the muscles and thoroughly enjoyed them. I also ordered french fries and was a bit dismayed... More

Last time we were in Bayfield, the Black Dog was closed. We are so glad it was open this time around because it is a cool place to have a drink. The ambiance is cozy yet classy, with the signature dog pictures and Irish fare. The chips are what I would consider gourmet fries, served with aioli mayo and tossed... More

A high quality burger patty is the base for all of their specialty burgers. I had the Irish burger which was fantastic. The thick cut bacon and stone ground mustard was perfect. Try the dipping sauce for the fresh cut fries!! The atmosphere is great and complimented by a larger selection craft beer, wine, and whiskey.

If you like craft beers, you'll love this place. For lunch we had black dog fish & chips, featuring a house-made beer batter. Delicious ! We ordered one order with an extra fish, and nearly couldn't finish it. The staff will answer any questions about the past use of the building and the great gift the owners received on the... More
