The food is great, expensive but worth it. Sea food is their specialty and the cook it right. Not over cooked like most resterants.

If you love sea food this is the place to be. Staff is wonderful. Food is fresh. It has plenty of options for people who do not like sea food.

The place is small, so tables are close together. Do not bring a cat to swing. Downstairs is darker and funkier, if that's your preference. The food has consistently been outstanding, portions are generous--we always have to bring some home--and the service is very friendly. Knowledgeable and attentive staff take care of you but aren't bothersome. They are mostly a... More

My husband surprised me this year with reservations to the Bowery Dugout for dinner. He definitely gets thumbs up for his choice. These folks are so warm and thoughtful from the moment that you open the door. The food was so amazing that I hardly have words !! We started out with an appetizer of alligator bites (which I have...

This is a basement restaurant with no pretensions of elegance. The atmosphere is "whimsical" but the menu is solid, the food was very good and prices reasonable. The best shrimp salad (it was in a wrap but available as salad) that I have ever had. My partner's shrimp scampi on linguini was just right. Their specialty is seafood.

The service is attentive and the food is OK, but it is the ambience (the downstairs rooms in particular) that's funky, authentic and worth experiencing. It seems like the restaurant has been there forever and the owners know what they're doing - providing seafood dishes to the locals year in and year out.....When we go, we usually have a martini...

There are few good places to eat in Kingston, NY. However there are plenty of boring diners, fast-food joints, and chain restaurants. So Bowery Dugout is really a treasure. We especially love the Thursday night half-price raw bar and the early bird, but we'll also splurge on lobster once in a while. Everything is always fresh and tasty and the... More
