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.

We decided to eat here after we read the reviews and it had great food. We visited at the end of our Farmers Market on Friday, what a way to end a visit to the market. They have a good beer selection but I decided on the one of their drinks Coconut Something and it was sooo yummy.

A few of us stumbled across this place while out exploring the Silverthorne / Dillon area. We were very impressed by the food, atmosphere, service and their own brand of brewed beer.

Who can resist crispy wings and $3 pints of microbrew from 3-6 EVERY day? Apps are 25% off during happy hour. Best place to get away from the Interstate traffic. Burgers are best, fish and chips good. Fancier dishes such as steak and fish available and mostly good.

Make no mistake that it is the location that makes this place worthwhile. The views of Lake Dillon and the surrounding mountains are wonderful and are visible from the outdoor eating areas. The food is just ok. We have tried a number of dishes here over the years ranging from steaks to house specials to sandwiches. All were just ok;... More

Ate a late lunch here after a round of golf at Keystone Resort. Few people in the bar area so not busy at all. Wait staff was good but it did take a long time to get my food. Once it arrived, ordered the fish and chips, the fish looked like egg rolls, so it was processed fish and didn't... More

If you go on a Saturday night like we did you can expect to wait for a table and wait a little for your food. But you can also expect the staff to be friendly and hustle. Plus you can also expect the food to be great. I had the teriyaki glazed Mahi mahi which was really good. My wife... More

You'd think that finding a decent place to eat in Summit County would not be a problem but once again we were faced with the decision as to where to go for a pleasant meal. With any place in Breckenridge out of the running (look up description of insanity...expecting different results.) and Tuscatos in Frisco closed we opted for Pug... More

Went there for lunch. Had the wing - pretty standard - not necessarily large wings. Wife had the Phili Steak sandwich - very tender beef. We both had a microbrew and enjoyed our selections. Overall the place was a bit pricey, but good service and positive experience.
