Service was pretty slow for a Saturday 4:30p meal. Open tables and server seemed uninterested. Appetizer Platter ordered when we ordered drinks- came 3 minutes before our meal. Half the plate was fried too long, burnt. Burgers for meal were super greasy, buns were cold...and fries were soggy and tasted like old grease. Reorder of drinks took 10+ minutes, no checkback from server on meal. Have been here prior to this visit and was okay then- but this visit has us rethinking a return visit. No manager to be found and the bus staff needs a uniform shirt not a low cut tank top and workout jeggings! Other places around we will visit next time.More

I rarely eat a burger so I was hoping for it to be as described—medium. It was well done so, meh. However, the bun was delicious. Grilled with some garlic salt, and had it encased a medium burger, I would have got what I was...hoping for. Staff was friendly and attentive as she could be given it was busy.More

Stopped at Jugs on our search for the best burger around and were not disappointed. Monday is BOGO on All burgers ... GREAT Deal. We were greeted and seated right away , server arrived quick for drink order , then took our order , food...arrived in a timely manner and was Excellent. I would put their Burger in our top 3 ... Maybe 2. Big burger , plenty of flavor , great selection to choose from .... Lots of waffle fries. Well worth our trip .... Check it out.More

Worst resturante I have ever been to. We got there at 4:30 and sat at the bar waiting for our friends to show up. My wife went up to the hostess area to let them know we were at the bar and our friends we...coming soon and that we wanted to have dinner. Our friends arrived at 4:50 and had a drink with us. We told the hostess we were all there. We had to ask the bar girl to get us a second round or we would not have been served. We asked to be seated 4 times and told by the hostess she had to wait to seat us until the waitress were able to wait on us. We sat and talked patiently. We finally told them we were leaving and walked out. The sad part was that they were not that busy. This restaurant was so unorganized and the staff under trained and not service oriented. Would never go there again as it would be a waste of money. I am a biker and pretty laid back person. All we wanted was a little simple food and some good conversation with friends. We found it at MJ Stevens about 6 miles away. Better quality of food, better pricing, and great service by an awesome waitress! Glad we left jug’sMore

2 waitresses 4 tables 3 of which were seated right next to each other so much for social distancing? Drinks came fast but the food was terribly slow. Waitress never came back to our table to check how our meals were or if we needed...additional beverages then we had to chase her down to get our check with that said we had to again chase her down to pay for our meal. To our surprise we were charged and additional 4% for using a charge card. We have come here often prior to the pandemic but won't rush back food didn't seem to be as good as in the past either walked away very disappointed!!!!!!More

Stopped in for lunch. Loved the atmosphere/real wood pub tables. Service was exceptional and friendly. We both had the all you can eat Bluegills of the Sunday special. Breading was light and crunchy and the first serving was HUGE!!!! We took home about a pound...of gills between the two of us that we couldn’t eat. We had waffle fries and pub chips which were both very good and generous portions as well. Coleslaw is just ok, and tartar sauce is good too. We found are new weekend lunch place 😊More
