food was overpriced for what you are getting. chicken wings were burnt and bone dry and tasted awful. the mains were way to expensive for what they were. we were literally just served chicken strips on a tiny plate with a piece of stale bread. for £10. ridiculous. i’d honestly rather have a kfc.

Poor value - the ribs that were £6.50 per piece were really fatty. Burgers and fries were nice but ordered a meat platter and it all came out burnt. Had to send back as inedible and by the time it had been recooked all the fries had gone cold and the rest of the family had finished eating. The platter was taken off the bill but definitely wouldn’t return. Sad as it was for my daughters birthday

BEST food and service we have had for a while! We literally asked for a member of staff to pass on our amazement to the chef and honestly, we have never had better ribs, burgers or wings from anywhere else! HIGHLY recommend.

Fast service, lovely staff, gorgeous cocktails and AMAZING food.

We had been at our table for almost 90 minutes before mains arrived, before our starters. These were taken away and we were served starters shortly after. We then waited another 30 minutes for our mains to arrive after we were asked if we were still waiting for food by a server. Once the food arrived we still had an incomplete order with items never delivered.
Part way through our wait for the mains we were all asked to stand up and move from the table whilst staff got more plastic pots for the kitchen, which were stored under our bench seats.
When we left it was over 3 hours from our booked table time.
All in all it was a terrible experience. Credit where it is due, the waitress was friendly and the food that arrived was tasty.
50% was taken off our table bill, however it still seemed expensive for what we had.

We were seated late, the server dropped the bun off one of our meals (it was replaced) then we had to ask multiple times for cutlery and napkins. The bun was left on the floor for a while and a member of staff cleared it but didn’t clean the sauces left on the floor. We waited 25 minutes for our dessert and when it arrived one of them was still frozen.

we had a booking at half 6, had to wait 15 minutes to get seated, it then took another 20 minutes for anyone at all to come to us. we were seated on a table directly next to a bench where they placed a group of men waiting for a table, meaning they were not only staring but making audible comments about me and my partner. the cocktails were only half filled and didn’t get the shots of prosecco despite is saying it on the menu. an hour after we arrived there was still no sight of food despite us constantly trying to get attention of waiters to order etc. the wings came wrong as i’d ordered hot and was very excited about this as a hot wing fan but there was no flavour or spice at all, and when i asked they offered me ‘spice’ to add to them, i was brought a little pot of paprika to sprinkle over them?

we managed to get someone else’s attention so i could ask for hot sauce hoping it would add flavour, he pointed to the ‘fry’ sauce and said that was their hot sauce, but it’s literally a mayonnaise style dip, they’re a joint that does hot wings i literally checked their insta and the wings have sauce on them. he then went into the kitchen and put ketchup and mayo on the table without saying anything???

when i still had food in my mouth and there was something uneaten on every plate including over half of my wings and only having had the food for about 30 minutes tops he asked if we were done, we just said yes despite still being hungry because at this point it was ridiculous. he took all plates apart from one, 20 minutes went by and he still never returned to take the last plate, ask if we wanted anything else, or ask if we wanted the bill. he just continued either standing near the till or looking around.

at this point it was over two hours since we arrived, they did take 50% off and explained that there’s a new restaurant opened upstairs using the same kitchen, a new manager, and they can’t shut off online orders.

I have been here a few times over a few years. Today was awful. The food was tough and hard. The quad burger was tiny and all overpriced for what we got. So sad but will not be returning ever again.

Waited quite a while for our order then one side was missing. Waited another 10 minutes for the missing chicken wings. My son bit into the chicken wing and it was cold to the bone. Staff member was great and took plate away and removed it from our bill. Thought the whole menu was slight overpriced for what we got too.

1st time visiting here and we absolutely loved it. Burgers were delicious. Cooked fresh and so tasty. Chips were lovely too. Service was great, but we did get asked quite a lot if we wanted more drinks when we still had full glasses. But overall, great!

Great food! I’ve had American style bbq before but Red Dog Saloon is definitely the best I’ve had!

Would highly recommend the Carnivore Platter.

Unfortunately my food was very average. Loaded fries were cold. My other half’s fries were cold. My wings were very average. Got charged twice for the loaded fries we returned (but the guy serving our table noticed that as we hadn’t so fair play to that!)
Also got charged a 10% service charge we wasn’t told about for a bang average experience.
Would I recommend?? No I wouldn’t.

Ordered some fried chicken . Very nice it said it was served with bread a pickles . I assumed it would be a hunk of corn bread or crusty loaf ? Nope just the chicken on a slice of Warburtons 😂 🤷🏼‍♂️ Ordered some loaded fries and they looked like they had been steamed rather than fried . My mate ordered the ice tea and said she didn’t rate it . Chicken and fried pickles were nice tho

Reds is a must go for me anytime I’m in liverpool. The brisket is outstanding, also had the chicken wings for the first time and again they were fantastic. Accompanied by a nice whiskey and some southern rock playing in the background. It is without a doubt my favourite place to eat. Keep up the good work and thank you.

Strangely unwelcoming, we arrived 15 mins early as discussed on the phone beforehand, then the girl at bar downright rude while we waited for our table. Had to almost beg for service all night. Food ok not amazing.

We will not be back. Burgers were greasy and not like the photos on Instagram. Nachos were cold and tiny for £7.50! The food is ridiculously over priced. Burgers are expensive and sides must be bought separately. Service was okay.

All was good - food tqay well cooked. Cocktails excellent however we got our chicken"tenders" advertised eith bread well they were sat on a piece of "value" square white bread. Useless wouldn't even attempt eating it... was expecting sourdough or pitta or simla on the side to eat with the chicken. When I mentioned to server he sai "i don't understand the bread either and didn't take my comment or criticism seriously! Would i go back no based on too many other options localoy was nice to try but done it now reason to return and expanding menu to ADD Indian and greek/Turkish...dont understand that at all!!!

Jai came to find us as we could not find the restaurant.
We were disappointed as the first 4 items we ordered were out of stock.
The food we did receive was very good if a little expensive.

Food was ok, but arrived luke warm, dishes were brought to the table that we hadn’t ordered. Some of our party had ordered singles / doubles of the same burger and when they were brought to the table the server didn’t know which was which, she said that this was because “the head chef had gone missing” and we had to tell her about some missing items. There were extra items on the bill which were removed on request. Overall, nice place and the staff were polite, shame about the rest.

Our second visit after really enjoying our first a couple of years ago. Sadly this time was disappointing. Burgers are nice but very expensive for what they are and all sides are additional cost. Bbq tray meat was very fatty and again the quality did not reflect the high cost. Staff fine. Overall, other than the amazing mozzarella sticks, we would have been getting a meal elsewhere
