We were staying at The Little Inn and had been looking forward to visiting The Black Dog. Unfortunately, they were closed Monday and Tuesday so we had to wait till Wednesday lunch.

So fun! We came for a romantic weekend away to Bayfield - a village I visited briefly, 3 years ago. At that time, I knew I wanted to spend some time there. We stayed at The Inn which was phenomenal (separate review). Saturday night at the Black Dog was great - lots of excitement a day after St. Paddy's day.... More

Have been to this pub on Bayfield's main strip several times and have never been disappointed. The ambiance has a big city feel. Many places don't carry non-alcohlic beer, but Black Dog has 3 different choices. The service is very attentive, but not in your face. The food is always delicious, and with excellent value. They are happy to provide... More

This pub has a nice, warm environment, the best burgers ever, a huge selection of beers, and the staff are great! On off-season, please remember that it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

We try to go here at least once a month. Great beer and scotch list. Salad with lemon, honey mustard and vinaigrette maws light but full of flavor. Cozy pub.

We had planned on having lunch here but it was so busy we just had a beer on the patio. Their menu has a British Isles flavor and there are 20 beers on tap. I think it has it's regulars as well as the tourists passing through. The staff is friendly and the weather was perfect.

We were in the area to pick up parts for our boat and were looking for a bite to eat. Seeing the pub from the outside we simply had to go in. It looks just as you would envision an authentic pub. The scotch selection made my husbands mouth drop open and they had a great wine list as well.... More
