Red Dog is an authentic Bar and American BAR-B-Q restaurant, serving 18-hour roast ribs, brisket, aged chuck steak burgers and much more, all best enjoyed with tasty cocktails or milkshakes.


Barbeque grew up in the South of the USA where cooks learned to slow roast cuts of meat over fire pits to make them tender. Exposure to the smoke of the smouldering wood added a distinctive smoky and juicy taste to the meat. Our award-winning smokers have been imported from the USA and are built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We use the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 18 hours.

    First visit and we weren't disappointed, service was good, food was great, exactly what I hoped it would be. The brisket fries were amazing and the drinks were reasonably priced. We booked for 7.30 Friday night and the place was only about a third full but just enough to still give a good ambiance. We will return and will recommend to others.

    Came away with food poisining on New Years Eve, was served chicken with blood at the bone... replaced by another piece of chicken undercooked with blood dripping at the middle. Unfortunately some contamination must have happened as I was ill a few hours after. Rest of the parties meals were okay but as you can imagine I won't be wanting to return.

    We booked a party of 10 , boys night out. I have read a few reviews, but the service was quick and fabulous. A few bbq items were missing from the menu, so we mostly all had detinater burgers. A bit pricey but delicious, and some of the lads couldn’t finish it . Perfect evening

    Amazing food as always just the lack of staff let it down last night very busy and only 2 waiters rushed off their feet we waited over an hour for starters that never arrived but the mains were as good as ever. The staff were just trying their best hopefully better next time.

    Service was poor. No one came to take more drinks orders and it 45 minutes after we had finished our mains till they started to clear our table and never finished. We're told it was because they had reduced the number of staff that night because they hadn't expected it to be busy so only had one waitress. Not a good enough reason really in the run up to Christmas on a student night and a world cup semi final game was on. Poor planning.

    We had an awful experience and was recommended red dog salon, we was there for 3hours because food service was really slow, after our starter we waited an hour for our mains and when they come out 4/6 meals was cold :( We had to then wait longer. We went about 1:30 and my family are a family of three and cost £75 For lunch which I thought was a bit steep especially after our experience. After everything I don’t think I will go back.

    Got one of the children’s orders wrong. And then the waiter who I asked. Then argued with me to say that’s what was written on the order. But it wasn’t what I asked for.

    Whilst I understand it was hectic due to the football which we were expecting, it was a bad experience from the start. Firstly, I had booked the table for 6pm but it wasn't ready for when we arrived and we were seated at 6.08 (table 7/1). The food we ordered was not up to usual standards and again we understood the pressure was on due to the football but the brisket fries I ordered, the fries were cold, the brisket was cold and the mac and cheese had clearly been sat there for some time. I was informed my burger would arrive a little pink but again, I wasn't expecting it to be tepid. To really top off the already quite stressful evening, at 655 (less than 50 minutes after we had sat down) we were told "sorry we're going to need this table back in about 10 minutes" we had clearly not enjoyed our food as the vast majority of it was left and we were still talking and having a drink following the meal. The entire experience was rushed, stressful and the food was not what we expected. To spend £61.88 on less than 50 minutes of such awful service is an absolute scam, and for £5.63 of that to be for a service charge to go to staff that were unhelpful.

    The amount of food for the money they charge is poor. The food all tastes the same, you'd think it was all fried together even though some was vegetarian food. The service was top class though, we could not fault it and the restaurant did discount the bill for the poor food quality. We would probably not reccomend it to other foodies.

    Went to Red Dog Nottingham in September and the food was expensive but delicious. Went in December and the menu had changed (although not on line) and the portions were much smaller. Restaurant was too noisy and also too cold as every time someone came in or out a cold blast of air was felt. Menu also not clear as burger fries were half the price of normal fries. So sad as used to be brilliant but not now.

    Has the potential to be a really good place. However it’s a waste of time booking, service is terrible, the food is good but takes an hour to arrive. Order all your drinks for the duration as soon as you sit down, otherwise they arrive with the bill when your trying to leave. Cocktails are reasonably priced and well presented. The menu is good, they have lots of choice. You need to be made aware that it’s doesn’t come with anything you need to order sides. You order bbq ribs, a rib and a pickle will turn up on a plate. This was probably for the best as the table we were allocated could have doubled as a bedside table. I politely asked if we could move when another became available but was denied. A shouting match erupted between two tables behind us which resulted in one table being upgraded to a better table which was annoying. On a positive note with those gone it was the first time you could hold a conversation over our little nightstand. No cutlery or serviettes were provided, it’s bbq food, you need at least something to wipe your mouth or hands after. I ended up grabbing some blue roll from a nearby table from the cleaning supplies. By the time the bill arrived, without a word said from us, the waitress apologised about how bad the service was especially seeing how we had booked. Despite this was still charged full price and a mandatory 10% ‘service charge’ We left disappointed, hungry and tipsy having downed our ‘more than a bit late’ drinks just to get out of there. Luckily the Christmas market was local which saved our evening.

    Great food and service, good choice on menu however a little on the expensive side by the time you had on sides, I would of thought burgers and sandwiches come with fries at least, but overall really enjoyed it

    One of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. The service was terrible- very rude staff, and abhorrent waiting times. When mistakes were made by waiting staff with wrong food being served no apologies were made and was made to wait even longer for the food despite their mistakes. Waited over an hour since ordering before I left. While I understand mistakes happen, the service staff were too inexperienced to be able to handle criticism and were highly defensive of their bad service. I won’t return here again and am very determined to make sure nobody else makes the same mistakes that I did. Should the poor level of service continue and management fail to address customer concerns I’d be happy to see this restaurant go- customers should NEVER be exposed to these bad practices which I experienced.
