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!
I'm just visiting Chicago this is my first time and I thought they had outstanding customer service. The waiters and waitresses were really nice and the manager let us know when we came for brunch but there's about 15 more minutes before it closed for lunch but as long as we got our order and they would still make us breakfast which I thought was nice the food was really good it had a really great atmosphere definitely recommend checking it out
Great place to go for weekend brunch. They have a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar with great garnishments and homemade tomato juice and variety juices. The food is decent. Not very family friendly as all the tables are high tops. We went once in the evening and the bartenders were very friendly and offered great suggestions on drinks.
All information accurate and correct. Map gave the eaziest directions and you couldn't ask for more. Live entertainment, comfortable and wrm feeling, friendly crowd, affordable drinks and just wonderful.
I love this bar. They've got a fantastic tap list, the staff is cool, they've got solid specials and really good bar food. Word to the wise, try the buffalo chicken nachos.
Good local eats. Not a very adventurous menu but always very consistent and dependable. Also really love their outdoor patio which is wonderful when the weather is nice.
Cheap drinks and great service. This is exactly what you want in a neighborhood bar. The only drawback is the number of hipsters. But if you ignore them you are fine.
Nice stop to have a drink with good people and good conversation the owner is great and the service is good if you want have a real drink see Michelle.
Music was hot had the TV programmed to show you dancing. Nice lounge area downstairs. Wasnt crazy about there drink prices.
Good burgers. Reasonable beer for Chicago. Parking kind of limited tho, but again it is a Chicago neighborhood bar.
