Wanted to watch Sunday football, and several locals suggested the Bardog Tavern. Although its not a 'sports bar', the staff was exceptional. Made sure that they have YOUR game on one of their 3 TVs. Great food and drink...staff is fun and accommodating! We'll definitely be back when visiting Memphis!

I visited the Bardog Tavern one morning - yes, I said one "morning" - because the hotel breakfast prices seemed crazy high and I read on Yelp that this tavern had great morning eats. I'm not a big bar person but I like good food, so I walked through the alley from the Madison Hotel to Monroe Street and opened... More

nice concept, lively group and pretty good food.. But if you don't smoke it is not a very friendly place, Ordered some food but after it was delivered people on both sides of me were smocking and the fumes were so bad I had to leave. My question is why allow smocking? Most people don't smoke but the ones that... More

Fairly small bar. Seemed friendly and the beer was good. We did not eat but food others had looked really good.

We sat in the basement and the environment was nice and relaxing. However, everything went downhill from there. Our waitress, Jai, was rude and huffy. My husband never got his drink. It took 20 minutes for me to get my bloody mary since Jai was busy doing shots with the college guys standing at the bar. There was only 1... More

This is a bar, like those of us over 38 remember a bar to be. Smoking is acceptable and the crowd is fun. Drinks are great! My husband loves the Bloody Mary, so try that if you like them. The food was nothing to write home about, at least in my opinion, but worth a stop for a beer or... More

We arrived in Memphis and were hungry we walked around and found this gem. We had four people in our group. Two of us got bloody Mary's which were amazing and spicy! The food we ordered consisted of the island chicken club and the famous sliders. The island club was one of the best sandwiches I ever had! The sliders... More

Good beer. Very tasty food--meatballs are off the hook!! Make sure that you check out the specials! They are made using fresh ingredients and innovative. We had the Daily dog special--whole beef hot dog on a great role with tomato relish (with peppercinis and olives) and parm-- and the mussels special --Thai inspired. Both were delicious! Be aware upstairs allows... More

The bar was very nice, quite a lot of people seemed to have lunch there so we tried it too and the food was fresh with a nice selection to choose from. The atmosphere in the bar was very relaxed, very nice to take a break from the exploring of the city and relax for a bit there!

Thank Niklas K
