Don't get me wrong, I generally like the food at this place and have had more than a few good brunches there but tonight I had a shock with the meatloaf. Called "Mom's loving meatloaf" I was expecting a familiar, old school entree. You'd expect this comfort food classic to be pretty easy to make: ground beef, bread or cracker crumbs, some eggs to help bind things, some herbs and spices, maybe some bacon strips on top but that's about it. What I got was something entirely different. I wish chefs would sit back and ponder the question: Why do people peel oranges before eating them? If they did, they would realize the answer is "because the peel does not taste good". Unless you want to pretend you're at a Luau I'd recommend staying away from this menu item.

I absolutely love the Barking Dog!! The food is excellent and so are the prices....the specials change daily so keep your eyes peeled for new dishes. Their toasted ravioli appetizer is a must as is the really moist turkey dinner! I am at BD regularly.. it can't be beat!

It's usually pretty crowded, but the food (unfortunately prices too) are a couple of notches above your standard diner.

Let's face it. The area around 96th St as you head to the East River has a serious shortage of decent restaurants (Don Pedro's excluded). There is no diner anywhere in the immediate vicinity, so BD serves the purpose of providing the salty starchy fix everyone needs. Yeah, sometimes the service is spotty and yes, the delivery leaves something to be desired (soggy fries). But the food is always good. Not great, but good.

I have food delivered from the Barking Dog almost every night. I can't vouch for the service, since I've never actually been inside the restaurant, but the food is fantastic and very well priced. I've eaten almost everything on the menu, and I've never been disappointed. The salads, the shepard's pie, and the fish and chips are amazing.

I cannot understand why they would pack a pot roast dinner into a non-sealed styrofoam container and then not even put a rubber band on it. I have called them to tell them my dinner had spilled into the bag more than once and they still do not change their containers. Also, there are never enough high chairs and they still don't take credit cards. There are 3 things I like on the menu (pot roast, burger and mac&cheese) but besides that, I think their food is overrated.
