Really great meal - lots of fun, great value, would definitely go back!
Shashimi was great. Ordered additional rolls. The sea monster, spicy tuna, and spicy scallop. All rolls were great. Heavily flavored in wasabi. Mainly looked for suggestions from waiter who wasn’t super helpful. All in all great food and experience.
Nice ambiance. Food was good, always love going to sushi dog. Had lots of vegetarian options for my date.
Don't come to Seadog for good service, or if you are triggered by unusual smells in a restaurant (it smells damp, like a used dish rag). DO come to Seadog if you're in the mood for tasty sushi rolls! The Little Sea Monster is my personal favorite, and the spicy miso soup is a really nice twist on traditional miso.
This is my favorite restaurant in Chicago. I used to live right down the street and enjoyed it almost weekly. Now I live in Michigan, but make it a priority to visit when I am in town! :)
Myself, three friends and a baby visited Seadog, and it's definitely not a baby or kid-friendly place. The restaurant itself is dimly light and cozy, so it would be perfect for more intimitate groups or a date night.
This would be a good place to bring someone who's never tried sushi and wants to see what they're getting beforehand, because the menu has really gorgeous photography of the selections. The sushi was fantastic, I got the Sea Monster, which was delicious and the salmon skin, which was pretty good. Super decent pricing for the quality and quantity of the plates.
I'll defintiely be revisiting!
Seadog is wonderful. Amazing sushi for a reasonable price plus BYOB!!! The staff is as friendly as it gets. Cool ambiance.
Friend in from out of town.
Food just ok, but nice ambiance and great that it's BYOB. Service was a bit slow
Server Emmy was very rude. Food was good but the service was horrific.
I love this place and if you haven't tried the Lil' Sea Monster...add it to your list. You will not be disappointed!
Great quite professional place to eat.
Food was not good. Service was slow and everything tasted the same. Would not go back.
I’ve never written a negative review on a Chicago restaurant, but this place was so disgusting, I need to alert people.
Food: A 1.5 on a scale of 10. They hide the average quality fish in too much rice, spices, flakes and other processed stuff like way too much cream cheese.
Ambiance: Good Crowd, nice energy. BUT they have jammed in the tables - I’m guessing it’s against fire code it’s so crowded. The first table they sat us at was 3 feet from where they stored dirty dishes, and 4 feet from entrance to back kitchen. Deodorizer plugged into socket next to table. Second table was average at best and couldn’t find level floor to keep it from wobbling. Saw food on floor beneath several tables as we were walking out.
Service: very slow. Took 45 minutes to get food after we ordered. Wait staff was minimally polite and considered it an imposition to make recommendations on menu choices.
It’s fine that it is BYOB, but it shouldn’t also be BYO Food, and BYO Service. We wouldn’t come back even if it was free.
SeaDog Sushi was such a great place, we really enjoyed out time
Very creative sushi rolls and so delicious. Service was very friendly and helpful.
Service was beyond slow. We had to cancel some of our rolls since they still hadn’t been made 3 hours after placing the order. Left hungry and frustrated. Won’t be back
First visit at SeaDog and everything was delicious. Food came out at a decent time, the staff was great!
I will be coming back forsure!
Favorite sushi in the city hands down! We get the little monster roll every time, but I’ve never had anything there that wasn’t delicious.
La comida es muy buena pero el lugar donde nos sentaron MUY REDUCIDO. La orden nos la trajeron en partes y tuvimos que hacer una pausa de aproximadamente 20 minutos entre un platillo y otro. Mucho ruido.
The place was packed, mostly with couples on dates. I loved the "hip" music! The staff were super accommodating when we made a 9:30 reservation at 9pm, and the restaurant was crowded. Love this place!
Incredible as always. Best Sushi I have ever had...period. Incredible value and BYOB is a HUGE plus
The sushi here never disappoints. Tables are quite close together in the back part of the restaurant which can get noisy but it's a minor inconvenience. Love that it's BYOB. Great service also.
It was a great Sunday night Dinner meet up spot . Not too quite not too loud .
Food was flavorful and inventive. It took a little longer than expected/anticipated. Servers were run ragged. Need more staff.
Good sushi, great value. BYOB is nice way to save money. Huge variety of roles. Good service. Will return at some point in the future.
Fish is really good quality -- loved all of our rolls and nigiri - everything we ordered had decent/fair prices.
Also really like that it is BYOB - bring your favorite wine and save a ton of $
I loved our table, the one on the stage by the windows, and the food was great. I thought the music was too loud and not the right mood.
The noise was over the top. Way, way too loud. We were also turned off by the menu. I went there a few years ago. It has declined.
Sushi is great. Price is very affordable. Place is kinda tight (you're pretty much eating elbow to elbow with people at the next table)
I almost never write reviews but I LOVE this place. The patio is lovely, the sushi is always fresh, the prices are super reasonable and the service is great. It is my favorite sushi place in Chicago and there are many great ones.
The only thing was that I requested a table in the front dining area and we were seated in back but I understand it was a Friday night and very crowded. Not a big deal!
BYOB! Very cozy, good variety of rolls.
This is a great spot for a hangout with friends or family. Fairly priced high quality sushi served by personable waitstaff. Plus you can BYOB.
Awesome and so delicious! Really incredible for dinner dates! It's not well lit but and the noise level is loud but it's intimate and really unique.
Great experience.. food was amazing, ambience is classy, service is wonderful.. definitely will go back.
Food was great. Would come again!
Small, local BYOB sushi place that is a noticeable step above cheaper or all-you-can-eat peers. While you do pay a bit more for that quality, the price is definitely fair. For two people, you should leave under $50.
Cool spot and vibe. Not too loud. Back patio is quiet and relaxed. Bring some wine and relax!
