Great Great Good Great Great
I'd guess about 20 beers on tap. I tend to be a hop head. Their IPAs included Sierra Nevada, Flying Dog, Red Hook and Starr Hill. Burgers, dogs and other pub grub. 20s & 30s crowd - definitely younger than my group. Felt like a local joint; not a chain, which yields extra points in my book.

This place is a dump, the service horrible(bouncers there have Napoleon complexs)and the music is even worst. They are under the impression that if the have a no hat policy that that will some how make the place classier. What a joke of a place. There are so many better places to eat and hang out in Bethesda so dont waste your time there and avoid at all costs.

The only reason I went to this bar was for a private party. Once the party ended a dress code kicked in and my boyfriend was tossed down stairs just for wearing a hat. One minute I seem him standing there minding his own business and the next minute the a**hole bouncer with a napolean complex is manhandling him. The Barking Dog is a sh*thole and the fact that they even have a dress code is laughable. The place is full of jerks!! Avoid this bar at all costs!

I have never had such a bad experience at a pub before. The Barking Dog is stuck-up, conceited and pretentious. The staff is offensive and impolite, the tap selection is pitiful at best, and the atmosphere is wholly unwelcoming. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I visited the Barking Dog (though thinking it was the "Thirsty Dog), which is more of a pick-up bar than a beer bar. The selection was good, though I didn't get an indication that beer was a priority. I had a Red Hook ESB; did not realize they offered Caffrey's - have not seen it in the states since Guinness bought Smithwick's. Still, the menu was extensive, although I did not go there to eat. It makes part of a good Bethesda pubcrawl - along with Rock Bottom, Union Jack and Ri-Ra, a nearby faux Irish pub.

Hop Pocket, Caffrey's, Redhook, Guinness among the tap selections. About a dozen seats at the bar, with a few tables also. Some of the interior looks a little worn, but comfortable atmosphere nonetheless.
