After a bad dining experience the night before, we took the chance to just have a "low expectation" dinner, nothing special. We stumbled into the Dugout. Turns out it was super. The service was friendly, straightforward. The food was delicious and had nice variety. When expecting pub food, we figured overcooked, bland, just okay dishes. The items that we ordered... More

The establishment is one of my favorites. The grilled and pub food hits the spot when you need a good meal in an easy environment. Poutene was added recently to the winter menu. The Dugout's version of the Canadian classic is good eats.

Our food was good and our waitress was extremely polite. The only downfall was it smelled like a bar that has a frequent party life. Typical pub fare. If you don't mind the smell of stale beer I suggest you give it a try.

I LOVE The Dugout! It's a cozy sports bar that has trivia nights, specials every day, and a great locals atmosphere. This is the spot to visit for the best pizza in town, huge salads, great friendly service and cold beer and cocktails!

The place was small with a few booths and a few barstools. We found the wait staff to be very friendly and willing to discuss the various drafts and offer a taste. Although we did not eat there, there was a fairly good pub menu with decent prices. Again, although we did not go in the back room, we could... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. The Dugout was recommended by our hotel, but we honestly didn't have high expectations. Wrong wrong wrong. What we found was a great selection of beers, and very good pub-style food at very reasonable prices. The fish tacos in particular were excellent.

Very comfortable bar with friendly wait staff. The chicken wings are good and so are the potato skins. Prices are reasonable and are particularly good when they run specials.

Some office workers and I ordered a lunch here last week. The fries were soggy and the nachos were all bound up in a solid layer of cheese and were served in a pizza box. Pricey too.

Stopped in for the first time. Clearly this is a local favorite. We took a table near the bar. The bar tender-waitress was quick to see us. She took our drink order and returned to take our food order. We tried the pizza. Pretty good. The place was friendly and the locals treated us like friends. We will go back.
