On our way back to Maryland

We looked for a good restaurant on trip advisor in Wilson. We found several, and lucked out by going to Pup's. It was in a shopping center, not too much to look at. But based on reviews we went in. We were glad we did. Being 2 seniors, with small appetites, sometimes it us hard. The waiter... read more

I have frequented Pups several times on business and always had excellent food and service. Not so on the last 2 visits. The steak was horrible. It's always been great but it was rubbery and had a terrible flavor. The service was slow and had to wait well over an hour for food. Will not go back again

I have been here twice with a group of around ten guys each time. The steak was really good when it finally got there but the service was so bad each time that I will go to one of the other steak houses with really good steak in Wilson in the future. The first time they did not have half... More

The Good: steak, service, value The Bad: worn, limited menu, cheap details This is a mature steakhouse that is showing its age a bit. It's built into the end unit of an upscale strip mall. The entrance and exterior are nice but again worn. The tables are a bit beat up. The menus are single sheets of white paper. The... More

This was absolutely one of the best steaks (filet) I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection, and the sides were excellent. The only downside to the meal was the entree was out before we were halfway through our salads. Timing was not great but the meal was SO GOOD, we ate our salad after dinner!

This was our first visit since they moved to this now location and it is very nice. We had a party of five and although they were packed. We had reservations and were promptly seated. There are many excellent choices on the menu. I greatly enjoyed the French onion soup and Oysters Rockefeller, which I will definitely order again. My... More

We came for a birthday celebration and the food was yummy. The scallops were amazing, steak was very tasty, and the shrimp and grits were off the chain. However the mashed potatoes weren't the best. Great drinks and service. Can't wait for the new location.

This was my first time coming to Pups. The atmosphere was good, the salad bar was good (although it could have had a few more things on it, it was good). I ordered the filet with broccoli and the loaded baked potato as my sides. The steak was cooked the way I ordered it and it was good but nothing... More

pups is one of our favorite places in Wilson. They have very good stakes and a menu that satisfies most appetites. One of my favorite meals there was jambalaya. It was one of the best that I ever had. Too bad it was a special and not on the regular menu. Meals come with a salad bar. Service is always... More

This is our favorite place in Wilson. It's a great place to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays or just LIFE and enjoy fine dining. The steak, salmon and salad bar are all fantastic!
