Had a groupon was curious due to the reviews but the service is terrible and slow. Only saw our waiter twice in 2 hrs. Food was over cooked and low on flavor. Normally big tippers but groupon or not its hard to justify when the service has been so terrible.

My husband and I are regulars. We love the place. It's one of our favorite places for dinner, or occasionally a late night party. The food is great. Local beef and veggies are available. Really great burgers. They used to have some great, unique appetizers but those have sadly gone away. I mean blue cheese fries were great, the fried green tomatoes, the potato skins, etc. Then around 9 or 10 pm they start putting away the tables and bar stools, the old man drinking Miller Light and playing the video machine goes home, and the place turns into a college party bar. For nights we feel like staying out late and drinking, we get there about 8, have a late dinner at the bar, party until midnight, and cab it home. When we leave there's usually a line out the door. A few issues I have with management: The beer cooler broke and they haven't replaced it which is insane. What kind of bar has nothing on draft? What happened to all the good appetizers? You had a dessert on the menu, but then didn't have it in stock. Service is kind of hit and miss, the ones that have been there awhile are great, the new ones are lost and commit such terrible sins as let us finish a beer without asking if we'd like another. Since one of the shift managers knows us, he usually takes care of us.

I go here quite often its a bar with good food in the UNCC area. Its not a five star restaurant.... its a bar you go to drink and when you've had too much you have some great food.

Went, first time, on a Sunday night. Waited a little long for or burgers. Otherwise, server was great. Food was very delicious. Definitely worth a return visit!

Good Beer! For burgers, hot dogs, and other good ol' "American" food, Bad Dog is perfect. We've gone for lunch a couple of times, really enjoyed the meals, and went back today. As I left, I wondered, "Why don't we come here more often?"

I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant because of their Web site's statement they had a lot of local beers and the menu that included vegetarian options. We arrived and the place was very run down and almost empty at dinner time. All of the booth seats were torn, there was even a hole in the wall. No beers were on tap at all. The waitress said their tap system broke and they hadn't replaced it or updated the Web site. The menu was not the same as their Web site. The final straw was when the bartender sneezed into his hand, wiped it on his shirt, then started handling drinks for people. We walked out and will not be back.
