Yes, it is below a strip club, and yes, late at night, you may see workers from the club in the bar area. But they have excellent food for a 'bar'. The sliders are awesome, and they have several great vegetarian options (the hummus wrap is a favorite of mine). Two words: seasoned fries. Drink prices aren't the greatest, although they do have happy hour specials. I definitely recommend it for a meal (lunch or dinner), but not necessarily for drinks at night.

The Bulldog is a decent place. Food is OK and service is fine. It's a little pricey, but works for happy hour or a drink before moving on somewhere else. The live music is a nice addition however, and you can see the performers from next door if you stay late enough.

This is a great bar and grill. The bartenders know how to make the old fashioned drinks like the Manhattan, Rusty Nail, etc. and do an exceptional job at making them. The food is good and reasonable, the entertainment was solo piano when we were there. Pleasant atmosphere.

We had a great meal and a great time at the Bulldog during the Big 12 Tournement. This is a little ways down the street from the Sprint Center, about 3 blocks, but it wasn't completely crowded and the people were mostly locals and it was a very friendly place with a good vibe. The service was great and the prices were too. I had the chicken madiera, which was awsome, and my wife had some kind of ciabbatta sandwich which she loved. We recommend this place highly.

Was there on a Wednesday night, the restaurant side was pretty slow. Several people in the bar area. Service was prompt throughout the meal. Only knock I had was the waiter really had no suggestions for a good martini, after telling us it was $4 martini night. After we picked one the service was prompt, water glasses were full throughout the meal, each course was delivered very well timed.
We had the hummus appetizer and it was great, very good flavor and a large portion size. Would have easily worked for 4 people. Our en trees included salads and while simple salads, they were very good, lettuce was extremely crisp and fresh. Meal itself was very good, my girlfriend had the trout and I had the chicken maderia. Both were very good. Overall I was very happy, for a wednesday I really should probably give it five stars. Only thing lacking at all was ambience. It just throws things off when a place feels empty. I have been there on busier weekend nights when it felt much better.

Cons: not much happening on a wednesday night

Took a group of 11 to the Bulldog on a Sunday evening. The place was relatively empty so we were expecting at least decent service. We arrived and had a couple of drinks at the bar then proceeded to be seated. We ordered another round of drinks, waited 15 minutes and they arrived. Once ready to order we learned a couple of things.....First, they only had two Ribeyes left in the cooler, second the waitress didn't know the menu. We ordered a variety of items, inlcuding salads and appetizers. Once the appetizers arrived we asked for another round of drinks, they showed up and the appetziers were as ordered. I will say the fried brie was very good.

Once the salads arrived we learned that our waitress stopped listening about the time we finished ordering appetizers. They had 2 of the 11 salads correct and didn't bother to apologize. We ordered another round of drinks - thinking we were going to need them at this point.

Once we got the salads figured out, we ate and waited another 45 minutes for the food to arrive. Remember we ordered drinks about 45 minutes ago. Most of the table just decided to do without. Those drinking sodas had made their way to the bar for refills and told the bar we weren't getting drink service but nothing changed.

The food finally arrived, we reminded the server of our drink request and she nodded but never delivered. Our meals came out over the course of 15 minutes. All of the steaks that were ordered were over cooked. Sides and sauces were inaccurate. And, we still never received that last drink.

Fortunately the waitress did not ask for a dessert order. Imagine my surprise when the checks showed up and they had added 20% tip charge to each of our orders. Someone needs to remind this place that TIPS stands for "to insure prompt service". I took my credit card statement, subtracted 15% from the amount, totalled and signed the bill.

I won't return.

Pros: Not crowded

Cons: I think I know why it's not crowded - bad food, bad service

I've been going to Bulldog for nearly 4 years for their good food and classy vibe. Bulldog has one of the best French dip sandwiches in town and my wife LOVES Uncle Bill's mini cheeseburgers. They have excellent fries as well - not frozen. Sometimes the service is unreliable, but OK if you are not in a hurry.

Thankfully, they did away with having a live rock band there on the weekends, so it is a nice place to go for a quiet glass of wine after a concert or the theater.

Despite my daily trips to area restaruants this is the first time I've been inspired to write a review. Let me start by saying the food gets a B- at best. Atmosphere is very typical nothing special. Took over 45 minutes for a sandwich and never once had a refill on drinks. Yes this was noon on a week day, but no one else in the area seems to be as apparently overwhelmed. Probably to worst aspect of this gem was the female manager who took it upon herself to come over not apologize for the delay, but rather tell us that we only ordered 16 minutes ago and scolded us for cancelling our order. Arrival time 11:50am, departure time 12:45 WITH NO MEAL. This place is a joke the staff picks up there attitude from the managment. Bottom line, there are way too many great places in town to waste your time here.

Pros: Good location, large rotating door to leave when food never appears

Cons: Poor attitude/service from both managers and staff, extremely slow for a business lunch

.

The food is rather good, the drinks are as good as most places with average prices, the atmosphere is very nice. One slight problem is that the music is always a little too loud. There is usually one man playing piano and singing. He looks ratty and is less than pleasant to listen to, but there is, at other times, a band or other guest artist which are usually pretty good. The service, however has always been terrible. I was looking for a new dive and have been there 6 times, each time with a different waiter/waitress. They have always been unreasonable and uncooperative. How they manage to do this and stay busy is beyond me.

Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Decent Prices

Cons: Loud Music, Horrendous Service, Bizarre regulations

The bulldog has a little something for everybody. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and the atmosphere is top notch. With two different bars, a dining room and live music, nobody can be unhappy. Excellent drink menu.

Pros: Parking, Service, Prices

.

The menu is broad enough to cover most tastes.
Everything is good (be sure to ask for the special house mustard for sandwiches). Appetizers are enough for two. Classic cocktails evoke the '30s. Friendly, efficient staff.

A new lunch spot for downtown or Crowne center workers.
