What People Are Saying

Unbelievable service, friendly, quick, really our server Billy went above and way beyond when waiting on us. Even though it was busy, the food was excellent, the prime rib was perfectly done and yummy. They really do cater to the tourists, but more importantly to the locals. Thank you, thank you!


"In town for the week and this was definitely a great pick! Portabella wrap was awesome as well as the bacon wrapped Filet Mignon! Great attentive service too!

"Great place to relax after skiing (happy hour) or for dinner. Service is always good and so is the food. Apps and micro brews and a full menu. We've never been disappointed. They've had a live band in the afternoon.... rather unique and a nice change of pace. Pugs can get busy in the evening so ya might want to make reservations. Prices are in line and the selection is standard Pub food but usually quite tasty. I would share pictures but my previous reviews had some and nothing has really changed. Still the same staff over the years which says a lot about the place."

"We got there what I would consider early (5 pm) and they were already busy. Waited about 20 minutes, but we enjoyed their Helles while we waited. Very good craft beer. Had a ribeye for dinner which was also very good. I think you can call ahead, if so I would recommend that since they get pretty busy, especially on a Saturday night after the lifts stop running."
