Im a sous chef in Nashville so I have a fairly good idea about how things in a restaurant and kitchen work. My wife and I are in town for a few days and went with her parents and our 3 month old daughter to Old Blind Dog for dinner tonight. We informed our server that my wife could not have dairy because our daughter who is breastfeeding has a milk protein allergy. The manager brought out their bread packaging and showed us that it did not contain dairy. "Great" shes on top of it. When our food came out my wife began to eat her sandwich and realized that the bread had been toasted in butter. Once we asked our server about this he said that he was sorry and has another one being made already. "Umm too late dude". I was pissed. I met the manager half way to the table. All she could say was tell me how busy she was and how she couldnt guard the kitchen and check everything that was going on and then had the nerve to tell me, "well we cant get it out of her system so what can I do to make it better." I informed her she couldnt and that its pretty pathetic that this even happened. Now we have to deal with a baby whos food is laced with something shes allergic to. We will not be going back. Stay away from OBD if you have an allergy. Or you might leave in an ambulance. What little food I did eat wasnt even that good.
My wife and I have been here a few times now and have loved the food and service every time. This past time we went in for Brunch and were immediately seated (surprise, usually everywhere has a wait for brunch) We were tended to very quickly and politely, we were also made aware of the bar opening at 12:30. We opted for coffee for the moment and ordered our food selections. My wife had the Pecan French toast which was huge and delicious. I had the corn-beef hash which was also awesome. We also ordered drinks which were from a large menu with numerous varieties. We love the atmosphere here, straight out of Ireland with large wood booths and wood table seating. There is also outdoor covered patio seating. The restaurant is clean and everyone is very nice, even the manager who stopped by our table to check how everything was going. If you havent been i hope this persuades you to try it for yourself. Cheers!
This place is great. I love the Irish pub atmosphere. Upon walking in you are immediately transported to a cobblestone street somewhere in cold Ireland and this is just the place to hobble to for a cold ale or a body warming scotch. I love the nostalgia that I feel whenever I walk in here. The entire restaurant is decorated head to toe with wood paneling and ornate fixtures that really make it seem like someone flew this over here right from Ireland. The staff are extremely friendly as well. We came in at almost closing time and they never turned us away but gave us our orders and cleaned off a table for us. They also throw an awesome St. Pattys day party every year. Its definitely a must attend. They have spectacular Irish eats and tons of beer and wine for all different palettes.
OBD has consistently been a great place to go with family and friends, and everything we have had on the menu has been good. But of all the food and drinks they serve, the thing I tell most people about is the beer-cheese dip with pretzel bread. In the past few years, we have stopped there more than once to pickup the beer-cheese dip + pretzel bread to bring to parties we have attended at friends house; not to be missed. Their Dog House salad with blackened chicken (itself, very good) is one of my favorites. Their Monte Cristo is also phenomenal; I just dont get it as often because it is also quite filling but I have no self control to stop eating whenever it is served. Definitely recommended for a general friendly gathering or for a special occasion.
Came here for an early mothers day with the family. I wasnt expecting much out of it due to the out of the way location. My opinion immediately changed when I walked in the door and saw the authentic Breton flag and amazing decor. After sitting down everything was enjoyable from the witty menu, to the local events advertised tastefully for events that seemed right. I ended up getting the Reuben which was good, but if I could do it again I would have gotten the sheppards pie with lamb. The Guinness onion soup is also to die for. We were full by dessert so we split a bread pudding which was amazing. The sauce tasted like creme brulee and we were glad we split it 4 ways. Definately recommend it to anyone even though it is a bit of a drive.

Roswell/Crabapple has been hurting for years for a good Irish/English style pub. This satisfies. Sitting at the bar is friendly, warm and a wonderful experience. The scotch selection is one of the better selections in town. You will always be taken care of wonderfully by either Jennifer, Jenna or Mark. Food is really good, fried pickles and cheddar bread rules, and the corned beef and cabbage is to die for. Love the bangers and mash, but it should be noted that if you dont like nutmeg or cinnamon, and I mean a lot, stay away from the shepherds pie. Weekly or monthly whiskey tastings are a must try for anyone that lives in the area, or can afford a cab ride home from this northern location.
Olde Blind Dog was one of our favorite restaurants. The things that made it special for us were: - A selection of top flight beers of the month with a complete description of each in the front of the menu. - Details to local events and fund raisers detailed at the front desk and on the tables, making you feel that the restaurant was part of the community. - Friendly and engaged servrers and staff. All of the above are missing. The food is still good, but the feeling of community is gone. I can get great food anywhere in Roswell. What has happened to the communty gathering place I enjoyed?
Having been to Ireland and the UK a number of times, Olde Blind Dog makes me want to go back. I rather like English and Irish food, and this place is pretty faithful in its selections. The food authenticity is... good, if not great. Ive never had lamb like Ive had in the UK,and I couldnt get it quite right here either, but the bangers & mash were good, and the shepherds pie I quite enjoyed, though it took forever to make. The staff has been friendly and prompt whenever we go. My only complaint ... I cant afford it as often as Id like.

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way home from a day trip. It was so cool! The atmosphere was very authentic, especially the booths being set off in little nooks and crannies. The food was excellent as well- the Irish potatoe cut fries were the best. We had the brownie and ice cream for dessert. The ice cream wasnt particularly to our taste, however, due to it being beer flavored. Fair pricing, too. A great little place to stop for lunch or have a nice family dinner or gathering with friends.
