This location is nearly always frantically busy at night and because of the long, island layout of the bar, it can be very uncomfortable with patrons constantly crowding around. The beer list is very solid, but the "focus" on craft beer that the bulldog used to maintain is now mostly limited to the uptown location as the company has expanded. Here, the main draw is top shelf bar food, with excellent vegetarian options (any burger can be prepared veggie). There is probably no reason for non-locals to visit for the purpose of beer hunting.

Service wasnít all that attentive and certainly not as friendly and helpful as some other Minneapolis places. Selection is not bad, but again there are better places in the Twin Cities. Wouldnít go out of my way, but certainly wouldnít complain about going here, either.

I prefer the Uptown location as this place is always too crowded. With that said the beer selection is alright, their menu doesnít always indicate what they have at the time. Staff isnít very knowledgeable, but they do have good food.

A solid beer bar. Love that their specialty is hotdogs. Nice tap selection. Nothing too special, but tasty stuff. They have a rotating tap selection as well.

Bar with really good burgers. Around 24 beers on tap, beer selection is pretty nice. I wouldnít consider this a beer destination, but this is a great place to start the night with a great burger and a beer.

Great place in NE Minneapolis! Big open room with a wrap around bar. Killer beer selection with proper glassware for everything. Food was also good. Service started out great but slowed a bit afterward. Still, a memorable experience.

Decent beer selection and good food. Never been here not hungover/drunk, fwiw.

Beer selection is pretty good. Beer flights are pre-determined, Light, Medium, or Dark - 4 to a flight. Service was friendly, food was very good. Atmosphere was a little too cold with a lot of brick and wobbly high-top tables. Not nice or cozy enough for the higher prices.

Nice brick interior that is on the dark side. Beer selection is good, not great, with the cream of the crop being itís Belgians. Nice selection of Belgian bottled beer. I seem to recall the selection being better in the past. Bonus that itís just down the block from Surdykís Wine & Cheese Shop, which has a good selection of beer. Otherwise, not enough of a selection for me to go out of my way for, but if in the area give it a shot as they sometimes have some special beers on.

Fairly nice atmosphere in this place during the day, gets kinda loud and bro-y once the sun goes down. Nice selection of Belgian beers on tap, but can be kinda pricy. The bulldog prides themself of high class bar food, which shows. The burgers there are often quite solid and unique. I wish I could say the same about the service. Usually takes a while for the servers/bartenders to even acknowledge your presence and wonít check up on you very often. Even though they have a decent beer selection, the staff doesnít really know anything about it, so donít bother asking questions.
