Great downtown spot

Wine, beer, side salads and Detroit style pizza make this a great place for an evening meal. It’s casual, busy, even in the fall off season, and better thant more expensive restaurants in the downtown area.

We visited this restaurant based on my fellow travelers. We arrived late afternoon. The hostess was very crude and insisted that we take a table by the bathrooms, I asked if we could be seated upstairs and was told that this was reserved for larger parties. I pointed out another table closer to the entrance and again I was told... More

Detroit-style pizza was terrific. Don't be turned off by the geographic reference, or by your experience with Chicago-style pizza, which is more like a casserole. The crust was thin and flakey, and the options were delicious. The ambiance can be decidedly local at times, but that's not why one goes there.

Remember that a Very Good rating is relative to other pizza places and sports bars. Some consider the pizza to be gourmet (and it's darn good!) but it's still a sports bar that serves really good pizza. But if you want to have fun in a cozy sports bar in a beautiful place in the world, you can't beat Brown... More

Never tried Detroit style pizza as I prefer this crust neapolitan style over anything else. Very nice pie and quality ingredients used. Pair that with a smart selection of local Colorado and Telluride beers and you have a winner.

Ahhh, the Brown Dog. Had many a pizza at this place. How do they make pizza crust this good at 8,000 feet elevation? Who cares, it is good stuff. Service can be hit or miss, depending on the day or snow conditions (LOL). I have had awesome service, and OK service. Regardless, the pizza is great!

Fantastic pizza in Heart of Telluride, New York- and Detroit-style, either choice is a winner every time, guaranteed.

Nice place with good kid's choices. Excellent Detroit pizza. The kid's meals were pricey for a bowl of pasta but it works out in the end. Lots of sports on the numerous TVs. The menu has a larhe number of choices. The XY steak sandwich is really good. There is so ething for everyone here. Full bar available.

Get the Detroit style pizza - crust is fantastic, toppings are diverse and well thought out. Best thing about this - we went on 2 for 1 night, so I can attest that the pizza also tastes great the next day when cold!

We attended a wedding in September and the night before the wedding family and friends gathered together at the Brown Dog to meet new family and catch up with old friends and family. The night was wonderful. The service was excellent. The food delicious!
