Description: 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.

Beer is great! As a dining experience, VERY POOR! Food is basic and average. Bute prices are that of a five star. I don't mind paying high end prices but I expect the quality. Great place for micro brew, wings and fries. Other than that, save your money!

Our party of 8 arrived and were seated right away. Server came and took drink orders and was very good at keeping the drinks full. Food was excellent! I had the ribs and they were very good! The rest of our group raved about their food as well. Very nice place, would definitely recommend!

Ate on the patio and the views were beautiful! Service and food was good. Had the French dip sandwich which was just fair.

Stopped by for some brews and it was excellent - the dunkel (dark) was just right - not bitter (much milder than stout) and the helles (golden) was crisp with a taste of hops. Didn't eat but food on tables looked tasty! The beer is well above your average brew pub - these folks know what they're doing!

Food and service were both outstanding! The fish and chips dinner was delicious and tried four different beers which were all great. Our waiter Adam was one of the best we have had in a long time. Absolutely recommend this brewery and restaurant!!

Sat on the patio watching the sunset partaking of some fine brews and good onion soup. Wait staff was helpful and friendly, prices very reasonable.

Stopped here after a day of snowmobiling. I started with a Dead Eye Dunkel. Perfect. Then got another and then another. Good buzz. Time to eat. Prime Rib? Yep. King Cut? Awesome. Great place with a fun crowd and good food.

The food was just average. But the home brews and friendliness of staff was what made us return twice on our short trip to Dillon. A bit too loud for my taste but would still go back for the service.

I stayed in Dillon for several weeks. I ate in similar brewery pub/restaurants in Breck and Frisco. Pug's is by far the best. I sat at the bar and ate in the dining area. Everything I ate there was excellent and I tried several appetizers and entrees. The staff are cheerful and attentive, the place impeccably clean, and the beer... More
