great when you are in the mood for bbq, I had the beef brisket lettuce wraps and my husband had pulled pork sandwich. Just the right size portions, all very tasty.
chairs weren't very comfortable - but service was great, very attentive, and friendly.

We had a reservation for 7, at forest tried to offer us a small table. I asked for a bigger one. Service was slow for the amount of customers. Corn bread portion shrunk. The food is excellent!

The food was inedible. They claim to be a barbecue and burger restaurant but did not have any chicken with white meat . The place was empty and dirty. Terrible dining experience. I would have given them a zero but there is no zero.

I have been keeping my eye on this place for a while, anticipating on trying my first Luther Burger and I was a little skeptical on trying something so radical, but it turns out that this restaurant has perfected this contraption to the fullest!!! Very impressed and I shall return with company.

food was fair and there is little ambiance. It is pricey for what it is. 12.00 for a burger is a bit over the top. Great for kids. the platter we had was 25.00 and we were told it would feed 2 but it really only fed 1. i might go back to try the burgers even though they are expensive,

I use OpenTable to book multiple restaurants monthly, for both business and pleasure. I have never reviewed a restaurant before, as most provided services to a level equal to or surpassing my expectations. This will be a first.

The service was very bad the night we were there as we waited almost an hour for our dinner. When the food finally did arrive, many orders were wrong. But the worst part was when I went to speak with the manager to ask if there was a problem, he told me to "go sit down, the food will be out shorlty".

I have frequented restaurants for over 40 years and have on the rare occassion encontered bad services, but I have never been treated as poorly by a manager/owner as I was at Bulldog Burger.

Disappointing. I was expecting Bulldog Burger to be outstanding, given its pedigree with the former Top Chef contestent. I was expecting the barbecue to be the best I have ever eaten. It wasn't and it was overpriced. First the good news. Service is quite good, efficient and friendly. The hamburger was good, not great, but good enough to come back for the burger. The pulled pork was semi dry with no real flavor. It comes only with a small one and a half inch by one and half inch square of dry, tasteless cornbread. At $14, that is over priced. Sides are $4 each and the salad was fresh and the fries enough to share. Our bill for a hamburger, pulled pork and 2 sides and 2 drinks was over $43....too muuch. The two sauces are quite tasty, though

A pleasant place to eat but inconsistant. For a burger place the burgers should come out perfect every time but they do not. The flavors are always good but sometimes a rare burger comes out rare and sometimes it is closer to well done. Don't know if is the chef or the way the orders are placed. The service though very friendly is not what it should be. Water should come out when asked for, condiments should only need to be asked for once from one server and delivered before the food gets cold. Flavors and combination burgers are great but need to have a lot of patience and not mind sending it back when not correct. The staff is apologetic and do finally get it correct, but should be correct the first time.

Delicious. Everyone loved their orders (burgers & chicken sandwich), except for the BBQ brisket which was not the best. Great fries & fun place.

My husband and I are crazy about burgers, and Bulldog was excellent! He had the Luther and I had the Morning Glory, and neither of us can stop talking about how great they were. Service was excellent too. The ambiance fell a little short only because I thought the burger side of the restaurant (barbeque is on the other side) was too well-lit, and it's just a big open room. I think the other side had a much cozier feel. Oh, and the pigs in a blanket were awesome too! And try to save some room for dessert.....

the waitress was friendly and attentive but the food took a very long time to be served; especially for being a late Sunday night and few occupied tables. The food is always good and well priced.

I made reservations to visit Bulldog Burger for my son's 13th Birthday. We arrived less than 10 minutes early. The hostess essentially slammed the door on our faces and told our family we would need to wait outside. Meanwhile, just a few moments prior another party was allowed in to place a to-go order. We took our business elsewhere. If this lack of customer service is anything resembling the service once actually admitted into the restaurant then I would look for another dining venue.
