We never tire of going to this local favorite. Tasty salads, great burgers, plentiful sandwiches, wonderful daily specials. Shrimp scampi, Mac n Cheese, fajitas, pug house salad are our favorites. Large selection of beer on tap. Usually too full for dessert.

One of our favorite restaurants. I love the hanger steaks - as good as more expensive restaurants at nearly half the price. Great comfort food at a great value.

I have tried this pub from time to time over the years. It is solidly okay. The food is okay. The staff is okay. The beers are okay. I always have the impression that it might be good, but it isn't......it is okay

I liked this place before.... But my last trip included horrid service, and disgusting food. I question the waitresses handling of my food since I became terribly ill after eating here. I loved it for the Moscow Mules, but now that I've learned how to make it, I won't return. There are better restaurants around.

We always fall for restaurants with local color and ambience, and the Corner Pug drew us right in with their warm, dark woodwork and cozy booths. Mussels appetizer was a generous bowlful a with tasty wine broth. Cod entree was delicious and also had a high level presentation way above typical pub fare. I had Cobb Salad with extra grilled...

Most were drinking water, there were a few beers and cokes. Took forever to get our food too after we ordered. I ordered French onion soup which was good not great and... More

The Pug is larger on the inside than it appears on the outside. Decor is Irish Pub with a mix of doggie culture in the form of pug photos from visitors. The Ale-batter dipped onion rings are wonderful, the salads are a generous size and the Reuben and pork barbecue I have had there in my two visits were nicely... More

This is a Tavern/Bar Restaurant. They serve will prepared typical Bar food with a few specialties - Good Reuben, I understand they make a good sheppard's pie and other typical bar food is reliably good. Food's always fresh and I have gone there several times and the service has always been good - even when lunching with a baby. I'd... More
