“Could be great!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Pug Mahons has so much potential. It is usually busy and the food is good, but the atmosphere needs some serious revamping. The entry is cramped, the bar is right next to the entry, and the bathrooms are just well, old. We really like the food, but don't really care for the atmosphere. We've been to some amazing Irish pubs here in the States, with Celtic bands and singers, rock fireplaces, amazing Ale menus and varieties of Scotch that would bring a tear to ye eye. Pug's Sister restaurant, Fiddler's Green at least has a sports bar atmosphere. We go here about once a year, but we are just getting to the point where we will pay for some atmosphere. Top o' the mornin' to ya.

“Great food in an Irish Pub atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The food at Pugs has always been great. The daytime servers have always been exceptional. We may only go every three months sometimes but the remember our orders. Rthe burgers and sandwiches are outstanding as are the soups and chili. Salads are a real treat and nicely plated. Probably the best pork chop sandwich and it is large enough to feed a couple. Their pasties are also great. That is just the tip on the food iceberg. The bar and pizzas are a whole other rave review.

“A Solid Lunch Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

For someone looking for a good sandwich at lunch time, Pug's is a good pick. They have good burgers and a very good grilled chicken sandwich. The pork chop sandwich is a favorite of many locals.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

For the life of me I don't understand this being placed in the middle of the pack in tripadvisor. The food is reasonably priced and outstanding...but if you really like chain restaurants and more the same then this place is not for you.
I had the Jambalaya and it was outstanding. My friend had the pork sandwich and I think it could have fed both of us. The table next to us ordered onion rings and they looked like donuts.. Oh yeah, I can't wait to go back.
