What People Are Saying

"Visited Dillon during a quiet time of year. The Best Western Hotel doesn't have a restaurant and they recommended Pug Ryan's. We had a good meal there and it's a micro brewery so we brought back a beer glass as a souvenir. Pleasant atmosphere and good service."

Christine R

"Enjoyed this place and its lively atmosphere. I tried the bacon cheeseburger and a scottish ale. Both were solid. We had the spinach dip for a starter. It was delicious and served with light chips, celery, and carrot. This is a great place for a post-ski mountain meal!"

Jonthan W.

"This place has been around forever and continues to offer excellent food, drink, service and hospitality! Anyone traveling to Breckenridge or Keystone needs to enjoy a dinner here after a great day on the slopes."


"We had already checked out Dillon Dam and the Frisco Brewpub, and this was the last and best. Good beer, good food, friendly service and a really nice vibe. We'll be back when we return to the area."
