Pug Ryan's opened in 1975 making it the oldest steak house in Dillon. Travis and Annie Holton bought Pugs in 1986 and have owned and operated since. The brewery started in 1996 and poured its first beer February 1st 1997. In May 2012 the Pugs expansion was completed. Additional brewery space and equipment were added with a new deck, bathrooms, entrance and remodeled side dining room. Pug Ryan's lakeside Tiki Bar at the Lake Dillon Marina is open seasonally during the warm months of the summer. With the best view in Summit County on its deck and the light lake breeze to keep you cool while sipping on your Rumrunner, it's easy to see why the Tike Bar has drawn travelers from all over the world and has been enjoyed by locals for years.Pug Ryan's has a family feel with its staff. With a majority of the staff being long time friends you will see soon why it's hard to leave.

DELICIOUS soup

Pug Ryan's is a nice cozy place in Dillon, CO. The food is like mom's home cooking. The food was good. I had the cheddar broccoli soup made in house. It was FABULOUS. They add a hint of one of their micro brews in the soup and it was delicious. I had a burger and so did my husband. This... read more

Stopped for dinner after snowmobiling. We had great service. The waitress took the kids order as soon as we ordered drinks and their food was brought quickly. All the food was really good. We had a great time here as they were having an apers ski DJ and prize giveaways and good music.

Pretty typical American pub food. Decent but not special. The space is large and kind of generic. It would feel warmer and more lively when it is more full- we were there midweek towards the end of ski season. Not a bad choice, the service was good and the beers were good- they brew their own and they are pretty... More

Hard to go wrong while dining at Pug Ryans. Great deck in the summer, and comfortable seating whether you are in the bar or dining room. Love the steak salad. Been eating there for over 30 years:)

We met long term American friends in Pug Ryans. It had a fun atmosphere but was never noisy while we were catching up. Food and the micro brewery were excellent and the venue is warm and welcoming.

Been to "pugs" a lot of times, and they remain consistent regardless of how busy they might be...great accomplishment in summit county! Expect a local scene in the bar, and upscale service in the dining room, Fish chips are great!

We've been to Dillon many times over the years and always make a point of going to Pug Ryan's whether in the winter or if in the summer we hit their Tiki Bar down on the lake. The staff has always been great, with friendly, quick service, which is sometimes hard to find in the mountains. They have great Pub... More

Love the beer, have always loved the menu. However, they have recently changed the menu. It now is just a beer joint menu. Still love the beer, however, I guess I'll have to enjoy dinner elsewhere.

Thanks for your recent review. I understand your concern on menu changes. Sometimes we have to update and remain relevant to our guest. I am not sure if you had a look at our entire menu as even though there are new pub fare items we retained our slow roasted Prime Rib (Pug's signature item for 40 years, our Ribeye,... More

Went here recently after skiing at Keystone. The menu is kind of split between higher end entrees and pub fare. We opted for burgers, with two of our party selecting buffalo meat (~$2.50 extra). You can build your own or choose one of their specials. All of us liked the large (1/2 pound) burgers and toppings. Two of us had... More

Good food and drink which means there will definitely be a wait! Sometimes a little too crowded in the bar area so if you're looking to take your spouse out for a night I would highly recommend a table as the conversation will get lost in the bar.
