Great place.

The pug is one of the warmest places in West Hartford. The menu, mostly pub style food, is innovative yet not pretentious. Service is good even when busy. My favorites are the mac n cheese and the Crabcake BLT. Great selection of beers on tap and in bottle.

I have had strawberry salad at many restaurants and have always liked them but Corner Pug had the best! The dressing was exceptional and having the addition of kale stepped up the standard baby lettuce versions that most restaurants serve. I also enjoyed the butternut squash soup which was a special that day. After I tasted it, I was wishing... More

We've been here numerous times and have always had a good meal. It is a great place to go for classic pub food and hearty dinners. The place is usually packed but we've never had to wait very long for a seat and that is much appreciated. The chicken pot pie is creamy goodness with a flaky pastry top, the... More

This pub style restaurant has the best food! From the Shepard's Pie to the Macaroni and cheese to the numerous other selections, all are fresh and tasty. The noodles in the macaroni and cheese are actually stood up and the cheese sauce is poured over the top so it goes into each noodle. The appetizers are great too. Whether you... More

Friendly atmosphere, cozy booths and a yummy menu will make for a fun night out. Try the Irish nachos (potatoes, not corn chips!) but be forewarned, it is enough of an appetizer for four people who still want to have room for dinner. The fish and chips, reuben, and burgers all got rave reviews from our party. Enjoy!

Stopped on Tues evening before Christmas and were seated right away but the place started to fill up soon after. One ordered the chicken mushroom marsala over fettuccine which was very good and just as good reheated. I ordered the pulled pork Panini with a spiced ham and monterey Jack chees.. My sister tasted it and could not even eat... More

My wife and I enjoy going out to eat and sitting at the bar for dinner and a cocktail. Usually we are able to get seated right away and by eating at the bar this also affords us a more casual dining experience with a sense of kinship to the bartender and fellow patrons. The Corner Pug is everything I... More

I love this place. The food is very good, although over priced for their breakfast menu. 15.00 for eggs, hashbrowns and toast? come on people. The server for us was scatterbrained and barely remembered to come back to our table. The environment is what I came for. Pugs everywhere.

Reasonably priced pub food. Love their pug house salad and their prime rob special. Great burgers and waffle fries. Shepards pie is also a fav. Local Elmwood institution with a neighborhood bar.

I enjoy this restaurant not only for the good food but more so for the intimate ambiance. There are comfy booths and soft lighting both of which can make for a romantic setting. In addition, I have never had a bad meal or service in my many visits. I highly recommend this restaurant.
