A Kingston treasure. Not much on the outside, but good food on hte inside. Well prepared, large protions and wonderful service. Since I love lobstere, I can call ahead to reserve large lobster and it is always prepared to perfection (I like mine steamed). As for mypersonal recommendation, I always ask for Beth as my server, as she is a... More

The Dugout has the best seafood around! Consistent great food, great service. The perfect special occasion restaurant as well as just a nice place to go eat. Reasonable prices, the best blue cheese dressing (homemade!) and lobsters. Great homemade ice cream for dessert too from a local shop! Highly, highly recommend!

Very generous portions of very good food. Heavy seafood influence with attentive service. Lunch is only in the downstairs area making access to restrooms tricky.

We haven't been here in years and thought we would try dinner tonight. The broiled seafood combo was average at best. The haddock was overcooked and mushy and the scallops were like shoe leather. The sundried dressing was from a bottle i think, definitely not freshly made.

I have been going to The Dugout for more years than I care to remember, but I have never ever had anything but the best seafood. I no longer live year round in the area, and in fact live in a coastal area in S.C., where seafood is fresh every day. Still, when it comes to soft shelled crabs, The... More

We have been here many times. They always heave the freshest seafood around. They start you off with garlic bread and a celery/carrot plate with house made ranch dressing. Nice little treat before the meal. The oysters either on the half shell or fried are great, as is their chowders and calamari. The house made blue cheese dressing might just... More

went here for dinner in december of 2013. were seated downstairs which is like eating in a dark basement. atmosphere, not so great but the food is good, prices are similar to most restaurants in kingston. i would recommend the bowery dugout to eat but would rather sit upstairs where it has a nicer atmosphere.

This is my family's choice spot when it comes to birthdays or get togethers. I've never left unsatisfied. Good food, great atmosphere, and the staff is always super friendly! We will definitely continue going back for more.

We enjoyed a very good Early Bird Special meal for fifteen dollars ($15.00) each that included soup, salad, the entree, dessert, and coffee or tea. They even had decaffeinated herbal teas available! Wow! My compliments to the cook, and my thank you to the owner for this delicious meal that was so reasonable. I will notify my friends also.
