We too stopped by for late lunch Friday, Aug 5 ... have been here several times and knew there could be a wait ... they even mention it on the menu as each item is created fresh. The menu seems to change each visit and some past choices were no longer offered, but change is good. We opted for the... More

Stopped here on a Friday at 1 p.m., assuming that the lunch rush was over. It was almost 1:45 p.m. when our food finally arrived with apologies from our waitress. The ladies who came in after us were getting their bill before our food arrived. The food is actually very delicious. I had the half fish sandwich and the tomato... More

It may tend to get a bit crowded, but there is a reason. The food is great. The service is great and you will not leave hungry. I agree with a previous reviewer....if you are in Gaylord and looking for a good, very good, restaurant, this is the place you must go!

From the appearance of the outside of the building the Bearded Dogg Lounge does not appear to be anything special however once inside you can immediately tell that interesting is going on here. It has a comfortable and modern décor that seems out of place for the area yet is relaxing and homey. Although we only had the salmon dip,... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and were surprised to see this place flourishing in little ole Gaylord. It was during the craziness of Alpine Fest which we were dead set on avoiding. The interior was eclectic and really cool...but didn't optimize the small at all. Couches chairs, and tables sat mid room which to me limited capacity... More

Have to try this when you are in Gaylord! No children's menu however. Great food! Our children ordered the shrimp skewers for their meal and that was excellent choice for them. They loved it.

We decided on this place due to the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were very pleased. The small dining area was comfortable and interesting. We had a wonderful lemon peppered grouper with a corn salsa that was fantastic. We had the roasted potato mushroom leek soup which was wonderful! After lunch we were pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful store... More
