Taking the train to Portland from St Paul. The pub across the street from the station was closed, so we walked here. I'm glad we did! Noisy during a football game (imagine that), but pleasant none the less. Great burger with Tillamook cheese, and REALLY good bacon. Fabulous fries... I'd return just for those! Quesadillas (vegtarian) I'm told were mediocre,... More

Great food and appetizers, beer selection is very good and good prices. Went with some friends for a birthday weekend and stopped here on a Friday night. Service was fast and friendly. Definitely worth looking into if in town.

LOVE THE BULLDOG! Had a little happy hour action with some coworkers/friends last night and as usual the service was fantastic. The patrons are always friendly and make conversation with the folks around them (sitting up at the bar) and it feels so welcoming and homey. The food is amazing. I am from Canada so I am particular about how... More

First cosmopolitan I had was amazing. Ordered a 2nd & it was awful. Told the server & all they did was bring more cranberry juice. Very disappointed! Food was ok but not spectacular. Convenient downtown location.

We made a post wedding stop for a drink and appetizer. We were pleased with the beer and drink choices, but extremely happy with their appetizer menu .... Especially the cheese curds! They are battered with a light, tasty batter!! So glad we stopped!!!

Staff is fast and friendly, lots of craft beers to choose from and their food is always awesome. They have 40 beers on tap, mostly craft and specialty. Everything I've ever eaten here has been good. They have the best chicken wings of any place I have ever eaten. Their Chicago beef is also very good. If you in the... More

to CHS Field for a Saints game tonight with an old friend, we went to the Bulldog to eat. Happy hour had good prices on drinks and 1/2 price on appetizers. My friend had the meatloaf sliders which he said were very good and I had the pulled pot roast poutine, which I thoroughly enjoyed with a mug of German... More

Neighborhood bar/restaurant, I visit at least once a month. Typically a busy place, very rarely empty bar stools but not shoulder to shoulder atmosphere. Seating is available at tall tables /tables and booths; outside seating, weather permitting. Service is always fast and friendly. Food is great! I frequently bring friends and have never heard any complaints. Global beer selection ,... More

We chose to eat outside, ordering beer and cheese curds to start. Curds were great!, not some cheap ones out of a bag. I got the pulled pork, she got a burger, and we were both very satisfied. Server was very attentive without being annoying. Made us feel welcome. Entirely enjoyed the experience and left happy, fed, and relaxed. Wouldn't... More

This eatery is convenient walking distance to downtown sites like the minor league stadium and the restored train depot. But the burger was worth any trek! I had one with bacon and salt and pepper ground into the party and it was AMAZING. The beer and wine selection was extensive and even a picky connoisseur can find something for their... More
