Full bar with a good selection of beers. Free popcorn behind the wall (search for it with the remodeling). Service was prompt.

This is just you're typical hometown hangout with a beautiful vintage bar and bartenders who know their stuff. Nothing fancy, but fun to hang out, listen to music and play some pool if you're so inclined.

Food is a joke. Pizza burnt & burger cooked in some type of microwave. Bartenders not very friendly, no shake a day & TV is not HD. Needs a lot of work.

We went to Pudge's on the night of a Packers preseason game. Pudge's is in WI so we thought we would be welcomed as Packer fans. Nope. Not only was the TV not on, but the bartender (owner) said "Well the important game is on tomorrow night." Referencing the Vikings game. We finally got him to put the game on... More

So much potential...sigh. Food is lackluster and takes forever to get. You can only get pizza after a certain time. I'll admit, even thought the pizza is frozen, it's pretty good. Would be wise to invest in a small grill to push out some decent food. Beer good, cold, reasonably priced. Service is sparse. Go for the music. They have... More

First time writing a review, couldn't resist after the terrible experience we just had! Food took nearly an hour, had to check the and status several times, no condiments, no napkins, no utensils. The price for three people to have two beers and terrible burgers cooked on a George Foreman grill was $42! Top that off with rude server and... More

Pudges has invested in a fence, tables, fireplaces etc for an alfresco experience. Since Pier 500 was swamped, we thought we would try eating there. DON'T unless you just want bar food. a selection of hamburgers, pizza and appetizers. DW ordered chicken wings. Must have been from old laying hens. Mostly skin and breading. YUCK. My hamburger was OK. At... More

Pudges has two pool tables, slot machines, darts, etc. A drink and a beer is about 5-6 bucks. The only negative is that the music is usually pretty loud and the bar tenders don't seem to like to turn it down.
