Located on the main strip of Bayfield, The Black Dog is the definitive beer oasis in the craft beer desert of Huron County. In fact, even by city standards this place has an impressive range of beers on tap.

My girl and I came here this past summer for dinner and drinks. At first we sat on the patio but the atmosphere was so deafeningly silent - with a bunch of depressed middle-aged couples staring about and refusing to talk to each other - that we decided to move inside. The interior sports a huge sit-down bar and probably thirty or so tables throughout the dining section. Lots of loud chatter going on with music in the background and a stage for live performers in the back corner of the restaurant.

Service on the patio was abysmal as the waitress kept bringing out our drinks, appetizers, and mains even though we asked to sit inside before ordering. However, once we moved we received excellent service from a bright and vibrant young lady who managed to save the evening from disaster.

Beer selection is 20 taps of premium domestic and import brands. I went with a Delirium Tremens and Pilsner Urquell and also noticed Wellington Best Bitter, Erdinger Weissbier, Affligem Blonde, Stiegl Lager, Steam Whistle, Creemore Lager, Martson's Pedigree, Fuller's London Pride, De Koninck Amber Ale, Railway City Copper, and St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout.

Food is good as I enjoyed my caesar salad and veggie curry. My girlfriend thought her house mix salad and chicken supreme were both very tasty. For dessert we split a delicious Irish whiskey brownie.

Overall, if it weren't for the initial bad service and strange atmosphere outside, I would've rated this place a 4/5. But we still managed to have a great time here and the beer selection makes this an obvious destination in the area. Worth a visit.
