The is a little dive of a place, but the food, the prices, the drinks, and even the service was VERY GOOD! Give it a shot. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

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.

This is just a pub, but with really good, made-to-order food and great drinks . . . both at very reasonable prices. We have only been there for lunch so we can't speak for the dinner scene, but lunches have always been pleasant - excellent service, consistent quality for both food and beverages, and a clean, casual, welcoming atmosphere.

The Dug Out's Mexican Mondays are great for a region otherwise starved of Mexican food. Unfortunately, they under-order their supplies so are often out of Mexican ingredients by 6-7pm. The Dog Out's Mexican fare is also way, way bland; under-seasoning is a Maine thing but wish the good Dug Out cooks would be a bit braver for this theme.

I tried others - but the Dugout has the best TACO SALAD - they make it my way too! They have the friendliest folks there - workers and customers too! I don't lie - give it a try!

The Dougout is a lot of fun. Even though it's in the middle of a college town, it's not overrun with 21 year old kids. Definitely try the Watermelon Margaritas, they are the best I've had.

Excellent pub food and drink with a casual atmosphere. Great sweet potato fries and the best ever quesadillas! The portions are generous and the service was very good!
