All was good - food tqay well cooked. Cocktails excellent however we got our chicken"tenders" advertised eith bread well they were sat on a piece of "value" square white bread. Useless wouldn't even attempt eating it... was expecting sourdough or pitta or simla on the side to eat with the chicken. When I mentioned to server he sai "i don't understand the bread either and didn't take my comment or criticism seriously! Would i go back no based on too many other options localoy was nice to try but done it now reason to return and expanding menu to ADD Indian and greek/Turkish...dont understand that at all!!!

There was small issue with one starter but the staff dealt with it quickly and this does not mean the food was less than 5 star

Jai came to find us as we could not find the restaurant.
We were disappointed as the first 4 items we ordered were out of stock.
The food we did receive was very good if a little expensive.

Staff never prepped table until food came, asked multiple times for sauce and was ignored, food was mediocore at best and for the price they charge was not upto scratch

Food was ok, but arrived luke warm, dishes were brought to the table that we hadn’t ordered. Some of our party had ordered singles / doubles of the same burger and when they were brought to the table the server didn’t know which was which, she said that this was because “the head chef had gone missing” and we had to tell her about some missing items. There were extra items on the bill which were removed on request. Overall, nice place and the staff were polite, shame about the rest.

Our second visit after really enjoying our first a couple of years ago. Sadly this time was disappointing. Burgers are nice but very expensive for what they are and all sides are additional cost. Bbq tray meat was very fatty and again the quality did not reflect the high cost. Staff fine. Overall, other than the amazing mozzarella sticks, we would have been getting a meal elsewhere

The staff were really friendly and helped us, however the food was poor, ordered chicken wings for starters and they were burnt. Ordered chicken burgers and when they came they were freezing! Not worth the price! Won’t be going again.

Took very long for food to come . Was decent vibe inside to be fair but just having to wait quite a bit was bit frustrating . However the staff was really friendly and nice and it’s decently priced

Food tasted ok, but was not value for money.. As a family, we all felt we’ve had way better tastier food for a quarter what it cost… & I feel like I wasted my money overall, it was a special occasion for my son’s 19th birthday, we couldn’t celebrate last year due to Covid restrictions and feel it was a let down…
The food pictures online don’t really represent what you get and mine was bearly lukewarm.. I will not be going again…
The place itself was nice inside, atmosphere and staff were lovely, just the food wasn’t as tasty as the pictures and description online lead you to believe, and the overall cost was way too expensive ☹️

We were visiting Liverpool for the first time and were very excited to visit Red Dog Saloon However, the smoker broke after we ordered barbecue food and had enjoyed our starters. We chose to order chicken instead and it was dry and took a while to arrive.

Overall we were quite disappointed but may return at the promise the smoker might be working again.

It was great place, but I can’t give it more than three stars, as we were all surprised and a bit put out that the entire BBQ section of the menu was off. There was no reason given either. So we had to have burgers instead of the stake brisket and ribs we’d travelled to enjoy.

Visited with a work colleague while in Liverpool for a conference and was looking for something different to the normal, and Red Dog turned out to be a great choice. Great venue, atmosphere and service. Would definitely return again!

Loved the feel of the place, the restaurant itself is lovely, great decor and music but ultimately left feeling underwhelmed. Everything was just okay. Burgers were nice enough but not spectacular (though I'd asked for no mayo, it came with mayo and had to send back - happy they didn't just scrape it off but it took so long to finally get one back my partner had finished his meal. Considering there were only 2 or 3 other tables in the restaurant at this point I thought this was a bit poor. Fries were just like takeaway fries with just a sprinkling of seasoning on top (would've been so much nicer if they'd toss the fries in the seasoning properly!). Partner had dessert (mud pie) but again, was just okay. Food is way overpriced for what it is. Cocktails were fantastic though (mojito was exceptionally good!). Was just disappointed on the whole as I'd booked for my partner's birthday and we didn't even end up eating our food together. And I really dislike places that add a tip to the bill automatically, especially when things are already overpriced, and I'd had to send something back. I understand when it's a big table as a service charge but there was only 2 of us. Appreciate I could've argued this but not worth the hassle, just wanted to leave by that point!

We attended and ordered drinks and food to be told that there was no vanilla or banana milkshakes, no ice tea at all, no ribs no macaroni and cheese. We left after this as there was no atmosphere and clearly as detailed above they did not have what we would have expected from a smoke house.

Food was really only average, I asked for buffalo wings and they came without any sauce. I asked for some and this came very cold I’m assuming it had been frozen in a small pot. Beans were really salty. Just very average. The staff we nice and helpful though.

Food took 40mins. Burger comes with nothing, no salad no fries. The advertised bread that comes with the chicken tenders was a cold piece of warburtons white bread, not even buttered

Staff exceptional, food was beautiful.
We had Gooey Louie, BBQ burger and a chicken burger. All were lovely, large portions and a double was a big portion. Chips could do with more topping for the price, but lovely all the same. Service was great and you can get a box for home if any leftovers.
Recommend that you book before visiting as it’s very busy, which is always a good sign.
£160 for 6 with drinks, so not cheap but a nice bit of scoff.
