    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Seadog is the perfect casual gathering spot for families and groups of friends. The bar is big and serves as a great spot to chill and watch the game. The food isn't bad, but won't blow you away. They need to lower entree prices or adjust the quality. My favorite thing is the salty french onion soup, mm! Ordered the grilled chicken chop salad, and it seemed like greens had been sitting in the dressing for a bit too long. An order of roasted vegetable bruschetta came with exactly 4 baguette slices buried under a huge mound of arugula. I'd prefer Olive Garden italian food. Check it out for the beer, apps, and ambiance!

    Stopped in late on a Friday. The menu is brief but had some good burgers and sandwiches and a few entrees like fish and chips and steak tips. I had the scallops with leeks and mash. A little over cooked but tasty. My husband had fish and chips lunch portion. Small portion was an option for about half the entrees. Beer was cold and the waiter was an absolute delight. If you need a place to stop on route 20, you could do a lot worse. Place is modern and very clean, and had some outside tables. We will go back.

    All diners in party of four loved their meals. Steak cooked perfectly. Fresh and tasty salad ingredients. The grilled Caesar salad is very good and somewhat unusual ... Not seen too often in restaurants. Wine selections are good for all preferences.

  • The bbq chicken quesadilla
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/2/2012
    The bbq chicken quesadilla was great according to one member of our party. The brie cheese appetizer was pretty good. The mussels were terrible. The sausage flatbread was bland. The wedge salad was quite sad. The waitress convinced one member of our party to get a dinner portion rather than a lunch portion of the steak. He still left hungry with the dinner portion! We asked our waitress about the mug club and she was supposed to get back to us about joining but never did--oh well, we won't be joining anyway since the food was quite sub par. Won't be returning.

    Dissapointing. I noted in the reservation notes that it was out 38th anniversary and that my wife needed a gluten-free menu. The notes were obviously not read by the staff. This was our 3rd visit. We both felt that the food was not as not quite as good as in the past. Not poor - just didn't approach 'exceeding expectations'. The waitress was outstanding. I asked a question about a menu item and, without asking, she brought a sample for me to try! That did exceed expectations!

    We have been to Sea Dog with friends 2 other times and were pleased. This weekend we went with our kids and the service/food was so slow. It was tough to keep the kids occupied because it took so long to get our drinks and food. It was not a busy night...just really slow food and service. We will go back because we have had fun the other 2 times, but if the service and food is still as slow the next time we would not return.

    The restaurant was packed the night we dined there. The nachos were excellent. Our entrees were good with the filet tender and the crab cake sandwich flavorful. Dessert was tasty. It's good that the filet was tender because our server didn't think to bring a steak knife and was, generally speaking, no where to be found. Having to ask for ketchup when one your meal comes with fries and waiting 10 minutes for the cream you requested when the coffee was delivered are not the marks of a server at the top of their game. In fact the server was the downside of an otherwise pleasant meal.

    We had a 6:30 reservation and I had to call and move it out to 7:30 -they were very flexible. We ended up arriving earlier than we had expected and they were willing to accomidate us at that point. Then the table they had picked out for us wasnt to the liking of our whole party and they moved us with a no-problem attitude and a smile!

    This was our first visit. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived but we were seated immediately. The wait staff was excellent and very accommodating to our needs. The menu was varied but none of the entrees that we ordered (4 of us) were more than average. Because of the noise level and the less than spectacular food, we probably would not return.

    We arrived with two sleeping infants and were 15 minutes early for our reservation. The girls at the hostess stand were extremely helpful - they immediately cleaned up a table for us in the back so we could let the kids sleep in their stroller and not be in everyone's way. They were so accomodating. We ordered entrees (filet and haddock), but after seeing the burgers we would probably opt for that option next time - they looked fantastic. The waitstaff kept my daughters meal on hold until she woke up, and then quickly got her meal when she was ready - such a nice touch, and we really appreciated how accomodating everyone was. We would go back for the service alone.

    Sea Dog opened in Northborough last summer at a location of a former Italian restaurant on route 20 in Northborough. Interested in trying their on tap beer selections, we decided to give it a try one night and enjoy some appetizers with our libations. What a surprise. The apps were amazingly prepared, and our beer "flights" did not disappoint.Since then we have returned a half a dozen times, sometimes for dinners, lunch with my women's club, and occasionally to share apps in the very nice bar to watch a game. This is not a pub or simply a bar that serves food. The menu is delightful and the sauces in particular are delicious. The service is excellent and I enjoy the atmosphere. Sea Dog has really embraced the community as well.Great job!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/27/2012
    It could be that we caught them on a bad night. Given its solid reviews online, we tried this "steakhouse," which is really more a bar with a dining room, on a recent Friday night with a 7:45 reservation. We walked in to find an already frazzled hostess/manager, and had to wait (a few minutes, not forever) for our table despite the reservation. Our waitress, though genial and willing to help when prompted, seemed distracted and overwhelmed -- when dinner first arrived, my fiancee's quesadilla was literally ice cold. My burger was dry, on a store-bought bun and had only partially melted cheese. OK fries. The beer I had (Windjammer Blonde Ale), in fact, was excellent, and easily the best part of our dinner. This was a bar with bad food.
