Great pup food

My mom and I were recently in the area and stopped in for a bite. We haven’t been here in a while and were happy to see that it was just as good as our last visit.

Good drinks! Excellent Moscow Mules. The food is okay. I would like more vegetarian options for sure.

Had a strong craving for a mac & cheese dinner for a couple of weeks, so checked out what are supposed to be the best places in the Hartford area, The M&C came up quite short from what I've been accustomed to. It came out of the kitchen hot. Nine. But what was not what I was expecting. If it... More

We've gone to the Pug over the years and have steadily quit going as the food and service have slowly gone downhill. Done the brunch on Sunday but wasn't really wow'd. But finding a good brunch spot in West Hartford is tough. Sorry to see the Pug spiral down. They had a salad with apple in it but the last... More

Always good for either lunch or dinner. Had a great tuna melt the other day. It's a true pub decor. Excellent menu with lots of choices.

Living east of the river, we don't get to Elmwood too often, but making the effort just before the New Year had its rewards. It had been at least two years since our last visit to the Pug, yet thankfully the consistency rang through. The salads are as fresh and filling (especially the medium size with chicken) as always, and... More

It was a rainy mid-December day; was good to be in an "Irish" pub. The place was quite large. We had go through at least three rooms equipped with booths; with dark wooden decors. Actually, very elegant. Then, We arrived at the bar. As we move about and as we passed a serving person, she greeted us. When sat down... More

Took my family here for my wife's birthday and was not disappointed. We decided to go for the not so traditional brunch. This pub is dedicated to pictures of Pugs which is very unique. They have a small dinning room, bar and private party room in this cozy abode. My order of raspberry cream French Toast was out of this... More

It was Saturday night and we didn't want to cook but didn't want to go out for a big meal. The Corner Pug was the answer. I had the Hanger Steak and they were not kidding when they said "this cut is the butcher's filet". It was tender and flavorful. My wife had the Pork Three Way special which she... More

Very extensive menu with something for everyone. Be it just appetizers or a full blown dinner, You will leave satisfied. Two of our favorites are the mac 'n cheese and the chicken pot pie. Just a tip- they are on the corner of New Britain Ave. and New Park Ave,, but you will need to park behind the restaurant and... More
