Don't be fooled by the "Lounge" part of the Bearded Dogg's name, though their cocktails are great (try the espresso martini), the food is outstanding both in variety and preparation. Not your average sports bar. Bone-in rib-eye, ahi tuna, creme brulee, all excellent as was...More

I have had a few great experiences eating and drinking here. The layout is new and exciting unlike anyplace in Gaylord which is a welcome break. The service is great, friendly and efficient. There is a solid menu to enjoy.

I love that they have a smaller menu, with excellent choices. Everything I have had here has been amazing. The decor in the building is so fun and adds to the experience.

The Bearded Dogg Lounge is exotic. In Gaylord - who woulda thought. The interior is charming, the food selections exotic and the bourbon pours generous.

Great little bistro, variety on the menu to pretty much cover something for everyone's palate!! Service is good and great atmosphere for family and friends, also a full bar and no worries it still a great family atmosphere, no questionable language or behavior 😊

A rather bread sandwich dining experience recently when I ventured into the Bearded Dogg for lunch. Service was friendly and the place was pretty full for lunch so I was hopeful. The burger I ordered was pretty disappointing, however I was quite hungry and on...More
