Bar scene, great food, (never been at night, but has live bands). My son loves the chicken wings, I got the peel and eat shrimp (amazing) and my husband loved the Dr Pepper BBQ sandwich. Had to get my husbands to go to bring home to him and they packed everything separate so it wouldn't get soggy.

Thanks Tammie for the review. Let your son know all you can eat wings on Tuesday. Great pic. LOL More

My friends and I (a party of 8) stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Probably 6-7 tables with customers already seated. Our servers put 2 tables together and service was immediate. Food was excellent, from burgers and sandwiches to fish and chips. Standard pub variety food. Many micro brewery beers with monthly specials. Standard beers and soft drinks... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Dugout for the first time recently. Obviously, a very sports-oriented atmosphere. I'm suspicious of the manager, however - since I saw lots of jerseys and pennants but nothing STEELERS related :) I liked the environment overall, but I thought the place a little too brightly lit... can't please everybody... My wife had... More

Dropped into this place 3 nights in a row to listen to some music and have some drinks. Each night offered a slightly different music scene, all good. Leans heavily to Skynyrd, ZZ, and Allman Bros, but ranged out from there. Service is very good, even remembered what we had ordered the night before. Colorful assortment of local characters made...

We've only had lunch at the Dugout, several times. The wife and I are not into sports bars, but, we are into good food. The Dugout has really good, well-prepared meals off a reasonably priced menu that's sure to have something for everyone. If you're in the mood, you can't go wrong with the salads. I don't know why it's... More

Every time we stop in here, we grab a brew and a burger. We have never been let down and the burgers served on the pretzel buns are always fresh, cooked to order and extremely flavorful. This is a great "shortstop" place to grab a bite.

We stopped by for lunch prior to a matinee performance at Flat Rock Playhouse Downtown. Service was prompt. I had a cod sandwich and fries which were excellent. The surroundings were attractive and comfortable. There is outside seating available.

Stopped by for a beer. Nothing exceptional. Later that evening the band Flashback Sally played. Went back had a couple more beers and planned to stay later, but the band spent much of the time conversing with their friends in the audience as if it were a private party. The music that night was mediocre at best. Maybe they were... More

My teenage son loves this place, so we grab a Groupon for lunch. The fries are hand cut, so if you're looking for the fluffy processed junk, move on. We love BBQ nachos, onion rings, Buffalo chicken dip W freshly made tortilla chips. Overall the wait time is slightly longer- worth it- and the wait staff is attentive. Yes, it... More

We lived in H'ville for several years before stumbling in for lunch. Not the greatest looking from the outside, but inside hospitality rules. They have the best french fries - must be hand cut. Sandwiches are substantial and beer specials make overall cost of lunch very reasonable. We've been back!
