The Mug is one of those bar/restaurants that attracts mostly a local clientele. The atmosphere is certainly not fancy but reasonably clean and comfortable. The food is pretty good as well and the menu is loaded with comfort food.

Local pub with big screen TV's as a plus. We went on a Monday evening and it was pizza night. So we ordered one of their specials and it came hot and delicious. The Kayo burger was huge and delicious with a side of great tasting fries. Since 2 of our party were die hard Red Sox fans the owner... More

This is a local pub restaurant. The kids enjoy playing pool and using arcade/video games. Excellent hamburgers and other pub food. Enjoyable place, plan ahead because it can get busy.

Each of us had bison burgers and hot wings. The wings are not actually hot, but tasty anyway. Burger buns were like a real baked good, not a cheap roll, decent sized Bison burger. As to the fries, not so much, they were the frozen pre-cooked and then re-fried type, not as fan of these. Felt bad for the server,... More

We didn't know where to go for dinner last Friday night and happened to find this restaurant. What a great find! The food was fantastic. I had the crabcakes. The waitress was very attentive without interrupting which is something I really appreciate. We had the table in the bar area that is overlooking the lake. I would say great atmosphere!... More
