Love their everchanging beer selection. Servers and bartenders are great. Just need to lighten the place up a bit.

So you want a basic burger and beer place yet you want it with style. Meet The Bulldog. For the hip and cool no matter where you live. Big windows to the front, sexy bar in the middle, iconic ceiling and brick around. Limited sports TV and a kick shuffleboard on the side. The burgers are gourmet, the beer list... More

A group of ten of us swarmed this establishment. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. We informed our server we were attending an event in just about an hour. The service was efficient and friendly. The burgers were very tasty and the steak salads were delicious. The menu was also very fairly priced

This is the place for a beer in NE Minneapolis and a burger. The junk burger is yummy along with tater tots. It makes a great meal. Wait staff always helpful.

We had a huge group, at least 12 of us, for happy hour. The server was fantastic! He was very attentive. We ordered multiple different kinds of tater tots from their expansive menu. It was so fun passing them around and trying all the different kinds. Our drink orders were filled quickly and they were delicious. The atmosphere was super... More

My friends warned me about the restaurant habits of cheating on tips. I ate a burger for $12 and gave a tip of $2 but when the credit card statement came the amount posted... More

Celebrated my daughters birthday here this week. Her husband had called to reserve a table in the bar area and we were given a small high top and felt very crammed in. Later when another couple left we were able to extend our space a bit--on our own. Server was friendly, but way too busy to be attentive. Surprising for... More
