Follow it with one of our juicy hamburgers, gourmet salads, flavorful steaks or chicken dinners or indulge in something from our 12 hour slow cooked BBQ pit.
Loved it we had a great time and food was good
Had a party of 6 - glad I made reservations - we all tried different things from BBQ menu - everything was great. My fav was the Cajun dry rubbed wings - no offense to the "sauced" variety but these were awesome !
Very loud but food was excellent! Waiter forgot my husband’s drink, we reminded him and he brought it a few minutes later and it was the wrong drink. We did not get charged for it but the waiter made no apologies.
Our party of four was celebrating a birthday. We were originally seated in the large room to the left of the bar. There was a large party of about 14 guests seated at the long table against the wall, making it very difficult for us to communicate with each other. We requested to be moved to a table in the upper area by the windows and were very quickly moved to that area. We were able to enjoy our birthday celebration in a much quieter setting.
Wonderful place!!! Great food , great waitress, fast service and EXCELLENT management !! If you have to wait for a table it’s well worth it!
BEST BIRTHDAY DINNER! AND THE BLACK DOG POINTS WERE AMAZING. THANK YOU
Got a cheeseburger. Too much grilled flavor and more than medium.
I really wish you offered more vegetarian options.
Interesting. Good food. Pleasant waitstaff and manager
Excellent food and service, very happy we made reservations! It was crowded and a little noisy but a fun place to eat!
The food was delicious. We took our grandson here for his 20th Birthday. He really liked it.
We did think noise level was a little much. We had a table just past the bar section. I think that is why it was so noisy. When we come next time we will request a table farther away from the bar section.
Can't wait to come back!!
We found ourselves in the area and looked on Open Table for a nearby option, and the Black Dog came up. We made a reservation on the Open Table app.
The restaurant was packed with a long waiting list, so very thankful we had made the reservation. They seated us before the reservation time.
Very large place and still packed. Great ambiance, though bordering on a little loud.
As first time guests they recommended their BBQ. I ordered a BBQ meat sampler and my wife ordered a burger. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Their house cocktails were really good too.
Service was quick, pleasant and made great recommendations.
Price was on par for a place like this $12-20 for entrees and burgers around $11.
Would highly recommend.
As a side note: easy on/off access to Rte.395
Great food great restaurant a bit pricey but for special occasions perfect. Keep doing what you are doing
Excellent as always. I have to remember to avoid the longe area. Very loud in there. On a different occasion and guests perhaps- that would normally be fine.
Excellent waiter and great food
Really good barbecue, varied beer menu, lots of options for everyone. Food was really delicious. Pub feel, sort of a hometown look and vibe. Nothing fancy, but awesome value.
Found this place by mistake a year or so ago. Now we make the trip from Massachusetts. Try the hanging bacon! Great food and outstanding service!
Food was good, service was great, but the restaurant was too cold ... we would have stayed longer for drinks after dinner but it was too cold so we left 🤷♀️
Bar staff were friendly and efficient. We had reservations which are needed on a weekend. Our waitress was fabulous. The food was delicious. It is a bit noisy, but we were still able to have a conversation
Food was very good, and service was excellent. But, the noise level was absolutely *unbearable.* We could not hear our friends and had to yell (and so, every other table yelled even more). That's the only reason we will not be going back. The restaurant should fix the ceiling and the walls to make the room more soundproofed. Such a shame!
Our food was excellent and our server was perfect! Nice, attentive and got everything right - which was great considering how crowded it was. Love that we can make reservations!
Excellent food and service! Just way to loud around the bar area. The seating in this area isn't good because you can't have a conversation with your table because of the bar so close and the bar spill over. While there waiting for there table they're almost sitting down eating with you! It's wonderful you have a great business but this the only complaint I have that should be addressed! Again great service and food though!
Loved the smoked wings and Prime Rib, hope to go back soon, so many things on the menu to try
It was a birthday gathering and food was tough and somewhat over cooked
Food was great as usual and live band was fun to listen to
Always good! Staff is very friendly! 2 meals, 2 alcoholic drinks, you will sped as round $40ish. Use Open Table, the wait on a Friday night is around 35 min. Open table got us in 5 mons after we arived. I aways see the managers on the floor. The manager Tiffany is a very good operator. When finding good service, value for the dollar and a clean fun atmosphere is hard to find these day, you won't need to look any further!
Great experience, we were in the side dining area and the noise level was through the roof. The food was great, service was great, the only thing I would do would be to add some sort of wall tapestry to help reduce the noise. We were not in the bar area so that may have been fine.
First time here will definitely be back! Great food, great atmosphere. Just a fun place. Hope to sit on the patio next time.
I love that they have expanded the menu to include chicken, steak, and seafood. The food is outstanding and they staff is very friendly.
Haley was excellent, attentive, happy waitress. Suggestion: Provide moist towelettes for people ordering ribs, which many eat with their fingers.
I am a regular of the Northeast food scenery. I don’t like coming near my stove on weekends. I therefore know where good food is along the Putnam~ Killingly corridor. Nothing beats Black Dog Bar & Grille especially their rib-eye steaks! I have been there many times before and will be back again and again. Take my word.
Repeat visit. We love the brisket, burnt ends, and kielbasa. Such a treat to enjoy outstanding bbq, it's worth the 2.5 hour drive!
Service and food were great. We'll definitely be back!
The food is amazing!! The service is excellent! Highly recommend!
Good food! Good vibes! Love the ginger libation! Lots of brews on tap ! Bar-b-q always in point
Great food and drinks, and a good beer selection as well. Service was a little slow for our party of 8.
Had chicken it was dry. Had NY srip I could have gotten a better cut a Better Val U. Had Margarita tasted like dish water. Beer was good. Will not go back.
Candy bacon apertizers on a cloths line is amazing! Beef brisket burnt ends is the best I ever had!
the mixed drinks tasted watered down-expensive for what you get.
Great atmosphere, great music, great service, and GREAT FOOD! We will absoluetly be going back. Devin was a fabulous server!!! Also....... the candied "hangin bacon" IS A MUST!
