I stopped in to Bad Dog Tavern for a bite before a concert I was attending accross the street. I had just arrived from the Detroit area and was hungy! I found the place a little dark on inside from the middle of the bar back but was greeted by a friendly hostess and seated by the open windows at front of the bar. Could see much better there. The menue looked yummy and the drinks sounded great. My waitress came to take my drink and food orders and was very pleasant as well and was happy to help me select a drink. The food didn't take too long to arrive. Looked great tasted great! I ordered the Pesto Chicken Sandwich which had cheese and roasted red peppers on it as well. There was some of the seed/membrane on one of the pepper strips and could've used a bit more of the pesto but overall the sandwich was tasty. Tender chicken, plenty of cheese, fresh bread. The sandwich was served with yummy lightly seasoned fries that also had bits of (what I'm guessing was) parmisan cheese and a crisp dill pickle spear. My drink was delicious as well (got some kind of tropical mix - sorry I can't remmeber the name of it). Bad Dog Tavern is in a neat part of town so it was also fun to watch the people that were walking around the neighborhood. A nice mix of folks. Good, friendly service. Fresh, yummy food. Good seating. Very reasonably priced for Chicago!
A friendly neighborhood bar – nothing fancy mind you but we enjoy the free entertainment on Fridays and the singing and dancing too. We have also watched several playoff games there as the big-screens are well positioned throughout and the prices are reasonable as compared to other locations. Quite a diverse crowed too; a good mix of young and old based on our experience. Everyone who walks in is encourage, at some point, to join in the fun. John's host's and is quite the showman as he tries to get everyone involved. I must admit that it’s also nice to walk around and chat with people and not have to worry about some goof slithering up next to my wife as she enjoys the show. An all-around, decent neighborhood bar!
I first went to reyolds for a birthday party, and had a great time there. I went back for a second time and the the good times kept on rolling. The third time out was just as great. The music was wonderful from start to finish. Looking for a good stiff drink and some time on the dance floor for steppin then this is the place to be. Come as you are and have a ball. The long Island ice tea in the place will sit you right for the nite. No trouble no fuss just us. No thrills just good old dancing and fun. Come early to get a seat is all I`ll say.
