My husband and I visited this place for lunch After waiting 50 minutes after ordering the food was still not served. There ere only 2 waitresses. Unfortunately, there are not many alternatives in this town, management should be ashamed to run a business this way!

The Ugly Dog Pub is a casual pub with food, beer, wine and mixed drinks. A great place to come meet friends or make friends. We feature Trivia Wednesday nights, Bluegrass music on Thursday's and regional bands on Friday nights. We also show sports on TV and special events to keep it fun. We are a relaxed place, so come on in and take a seat, or walk up to the bar and order a drink and something to eat. Hope to see you soon!
