What People Are Saying

"I wanted to treat my son to a nice dinner (no burger and fries). He suggested Pug Ryans and I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be exactly what I had in mind. A comfortable setting; a generous glass of wine; (he had a house brewed beer); warm fresh bread; gourmet salad; flavorful steak; he said ribs were excellent. The service was warm and welcoming (Angie and hostess). Glad we ate here!"

"Stopped in for beers for a couple of friends. The brewery had an openness and atmosphere that I found very comfortable and easy-going. We tried a few of the beers and each was very good. I'll happily go there again!"

Dave B.

"In visiting Pug's regularly for over six years, I can attest to the fact that their "Over The Rail" PALE ALE is one of the best I have ever tasted, and enjoyed! The food is always good; and Pug's is always a treat!"


"The only restaurant in the area named after a thief and a murderer. This is really two types of restaurants in one. In the bar you can get great appetizers and burgers and sit inside or outside on their new larger deck. Or you can eat in the formal restaurant where fine steaks and other great entrees are on the menu. We have done both and it is all good. Great place to stop after an earlier event also. From the deck you can hear the concerts in the nearby amphitheater."
