A nice little place that is open late on Sundays. We stopped in here for a few beers after midnight on a Sunday. Good service. The chili cheese fries were just average though. It is also close to the Residence Inn if you are staying there.

Driving back to Chicago from Houston we stopped half way in Memphis. As we unloaded the car we asked the door man where we might find a restaurant with reasonable good food and without hesitation he said "down the street on the left The Bardog". We headed out and walked right past this place. No big sign or neon lights.... More

Met some good friends there for dinner and to visit. The food was good but diners should know this is a smoking bar. They have a good fan system that helps but non smokers will still smell like smoke after visiting. There is a downstairs non smoking dining area that opens after 7pm.

Met a couple of friends there for dinner and a drink. The menu looked promising when we checked online and thought we'd give them a try. Bardog is, first, a bar. They serve food as well, and it's good. I had the Amazing Island Club and enjoyed it as something different than the standard ham and turkey version. My wife... More

Good for drinks and interesting options for lunch on the Sat-Sun brunch menu. Bar allows smoking, so if you aren't a smoker, you might want to try a different location

We were surprised to walk into a smoking bar but we were pleased by the service and food. Great for a late-night snack.

We ate here after arriving in memphis before the Grizzlies vs. Lakers game, around 7. Great atmosphere. Ordered sliders and a sub that were fantastic. Guy next to us ordered a plate of oysters and when he finished he ordered another plate they were so good! Lol and they did smell amazing. Great bar!

16 of us traveled together for three days and most of us hit this bar at least once a day. Nice location off beaten path. Give it a whirl as one of your many libation hits.

Don't come here on a first date but this place is such a cool place to hang out at. Tasty looking food and an impressive line of beers. We had a couple local drafts for 3.00 a piece. I'll be back when in town
