"the many faces of Amy"


  • I came here with a few of my townie friends, so maybe that’s why my experience was so great. Then again, I was with just one friend who isn’t a regular when we arrived to meet our buddies. What we hasn’t realized is that they don’t open til 1130. The waitress came over and let us in at 1115. She was not super talkative, but accommodating.

    Once our regulars showed up, she opened right up and was a hoot! It’s worth it to introduce yourself if you plan on coming back.

    My burger was delicious! On a ciabatta roll with bleu cheese and sauteed onions. I snarfed it.

    I’ve been back and had another sandwich- like a southwestern chicken something and it was also super fresh and yummy. I was surprised considering it’s a greasy dive/ bar. All I can say is that 2 for 2 is pretty darn good.

  • “Great burgers!”
    The Mug is a great place for individuals or families looking for good food at a fair price. The atmosphere is very casual so no need to dress up – tee shirts, shorts and flip flops are fine. The burgers are outstanding! The owner buys freshly ground beef each day at the local market so no fear that they are serving pre-made, frozen burgers. The pizza is also excellent. Good selection of beers – and chilled glasses are available. The Mug is a local treasure, open year round serving good pub grub at fair prices.

  • “Local hang out with bar, billiards, and basic fare”
    This is a place where locals meet to drink and watch or play games. The meat eaters in our party enjoyed their burgers the first time we came and the second time, the turkey club came with a copious amount of fries. The food was reasonably priced and satisfactory but that’s about all I can say in praise of it.
