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!

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.

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!

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.

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 $

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)

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.
