Great spot on the Lehigh Gorge bike trail for a quick bite and a ice cold beer!

Food is basic but good and service is friendly and quick. Owner, Charlie, was friendly and promises outside seating in the future...nice addition for those who don't like to be out of sight of their bicycle 🚲

We stopped by to grab some lunch on Sunday 10/19/14 & they were closed. Came again for Happy Hour on Tuesday 10/21 & they were still closed. There were no lights on to suggest any activity & no sign on the door saying they were closed. Anyone have any info?

Friendly staff. Fresh, tasty, well prepared food. We had the chicken parm and the blackened salmon. Reasonably priced. Check it out. We'll be back!!

We were starving and got off the exit on the Northeast extension to White haven, drove a few minutes off the exit to the west and saw a little downtown area, noticed this place and glad we went in. The outside is painted nicely, but the inside is really cute. The people were very friendly, took our order, the food... More

Driving along side the Lehigh River, through Hickory Run Park, hungry and searching for Rt 80, we were thrilled to find a restaurant with an authentic feel and look like The Ugly Mug. The owner, (I believe Charlie), was a pleasant person with a gigantic love for his restaurant. The staff and food were delightful. We recommend the perogis and... More

Deep fried buffalo perogies thumbs up. Fresh food cooked perfect. Chicken on chicken pram was thick and juicy. Other guest I was with enjoyed their meals also. Driving to Knowles feom New Jersey. Definitely a great spot to stop.

I've stopped into the Ugly Mug on two separate, recent occasions. The proprietor is incredibly friendly. The atmosphere is casual, and family-friendly, just perfect after a day of rafting, hiking, or other outdoor activities in the area. Definitely recommend folks stop by. Try the pierogies!

My husband and I stopped in for a "cold one" and a bite to eat after a day spent biking on the nearby trail. The food was wonderful, the beers were cold and the atmosphere was friendly. We had a great time talking with the owner and the regular patrons. This place is worth a visit!! Cathy and Chris Becker

We were waiting for family to arrive. They were late. The owner tried to find out where they were and was very helpful. When they got there we had lunch. Food was VERY good and the service was great. I will go back again and highly recommend this restaurant.
