My wife and I live quite a ways north of Seattle. We received a gift card for the BD, and took the opportunity of a birthday gathering in the area to venture down and try this place along with my wife's daughter. Although it might be a great place for the locals, parking can be a bit of an issue.... More

We were here for a wedding and my daughter took us for lunch. Upscale pub fare, friendly staff and dog friendly both inside and out. I had the lamb burger, my wife had the lunch portion of the fish and chips, while my daughter had the falafel plate. Finley the rescue mutt had a little of everything. We also had... More

Good food! Beer was limited, they ran out of the first 2 beers I selected. Were helpful in picking another beer. Service was sloooow. Entertaining , but slow.

Shortly after the Barking Dog opened at 11am on a misty Seattle Saturday morning, I stopped by—with our wonderful Golden Retriever Riley in tow—for a cold one. [NOTE: I had left my “best friend” Terry at home to read a thick book in the spacious master bedroom of our home just down the street; and I was supposedly “taking the... More

I have visited Braking Dog since it first came on board many years back and I am disappointed to see that it's qaulity has gone down. It was our "Go to" restaurant for family-type get togethers (with kids) and also with friends. The menu and quality of food when they started was excellent and diverse. I visited this place twice...

I have been coming to the Barking Dog since 2009, and although I love the neighborhood vibe I have received very poor service. Most recently my fiancé and I stopped in for a casual beer and an appetizer. Seated on the patio, we waited over 20 minutes before even seeing a member of the wait staff. Drinks took another 15...

I last reviewed Barking Dog back in 2012. Being just a few blocks from our house, it's always been a reliable stand-by for us: We usually dine there at least once a month, usually more often. But I'm afraid it is starting to lose its luster in the quality of its food and - particularly - its service. Menus have... More

Always stop here when visiting family in the area. Wish they were in my neighborhood back East. Big beer selection, always something good to try. Updated menu, standard pub food but well-made. Best thing is it's only a short walk home.

The beer selection is extraordinary, the food is pretty good, and the service is hit or miss. The spotty service, combined with the long wait for a table can make for an underwhelming experience.

First time at this delightful place was based on convenient location to where I was staying in this residential neighborhood. At brunch, patrons included families with children, couples, small groups of friends... It is obviously a popular neighborhood place to eat and/or drink. My daughter and I each had a complete and delicious breakfast. I returned twice, including a time... More
