This is one of the most popular bars in the city. They have beers on tap covering locals and domestics as well as several ciders. If you want a good international beer this is not the place to come. The ambience is solid with consistent large crowds and a decent amount of outdoor seating but their service suffers from because of this. They always seem to have 3 bartenders working but this is not enough given their high volume. The food is ok but nothing special - typical bar burgers/fries. The prices arenít cheap but arenít too expensive either. most pints are in the 4-5 dollar range. Wednesday nights are their most popular nights as you get to keep every custom made pint glass while drinking. Iím pretty sure every college student in New Orleans has this establishment to thank for their fine glassware at home.

This is the perfect, quintessential New Orleans pub. The servers are awesome in that they know their beer, are happy to give several samples to help you find the right one, and they even ask what type of beer you typically love to get a good handle on the beer to serve. 60 beers on tap. Great bar food, cooked to order right before you. Itís heaven in a tavern.

I came here during slow hours and found it to be enjoyable. Good selection of beer, moderately priced, and a selection of snacks/bar food by the counter opposite the bar. If you are in the area its worth visiting as there is not much else around this area that is known for craft beer. The guy working the food counter can get a bit chatty so watch out!

This place is on the very popular Magazine Street a ten minute walk or so west of Steinís, lot of interesting restaurants and bars in this area. Inside is rather dark, but the door next to the bar opens onto a nice patio with picnic styles tables and benches. The beer list is pretty large with a fair number of local things. Didnít try the food. Service was fine when I visited, even though it was pretty crowded.

Nice atmosphere here but the experience was ruined by the snotty bartender that looked right at my wife and then looked at someone else and said, "May I help you?". You only get service at the bar. They will not come to your table and you have to go to a kitchen window to order and pick up food. They have lots of food options but nothing that they couldnít get a trained monkey to make. So to recap, a decent beer selection, decent atmosphere, lackluster service, a snotty bartender and basic food. Plenty of better places in this town.

Visited February 17, 2014.

I have mixed feelings about this place. On one hand they have this really cool fountain that theyíve built where the water pours from a bunch of open taps mounted to the top of a curved brick wall. They also have a lot of beer to pick from, some of which is good (most of which is not) and sitting out on the patio on a warm night is nice. On the other hand the service was crappy. The bartender had no interest in helping and the servers only seem to come by the table once an hour or so. I guess if you know what you want and just order at the bar itís fine, but itís a shame that they ruin an otherwise perfectly nice atmosphere. I didnít eat anything but the food looked OK from what I saw. The menu looked good though. Over all pretty meh.

A great location with a nice selection of craft and local beers on tap. The inside is a bit small and overcrowded for a Sunday night. But overall this is a decent bar in Uptown

Quite small and crowded pub (on a Saturday afternoon). Service was OK and selection too. Our visit was quite brief. Could visit again.

I think that the Bulldog has made a lot of improvements recently, most notably, having an up to date beer menu available to peruse (which was my previous main peeve).Iím cautiously optimistic that this bar with lots of beer may become a bona fide beer bar yet.

I find the previous comments too harsh. This is NOLA, and any half way decent beer bar beats Bourbon St. The Bulldog has a pleasant tree-shaded patio with a wall fountain where the water pours from 40+ beer taps and coins are donated to local animal charities (they also have a dog watering station on the patio). The beers are reasonably priced and the selection is adequate if not astounding. Itís a fine place to stop by when visiting NOLA.
