I hadn't been in Pug Mahon's in well over a year. I attended an Irish Rovers concert earlier this month, and since Pug's was the sponsor, decided to show my support. Upon arrival, my companion and I were seated quickly and a drink order was taken. The menu was not what I remembered at all, few choices, and nothing much... More

Best food in Billings hands down. The pork chop Sand which is legendary. Every time I'm in a Billings I have to make time to come here.

I stop in Pug's every now and then, good place for reasonable priced beer and food, and the portions are large. Love their pasties, which are hard to find in restaurants, and pork chop sandwich. Delicious! I usually drink Blue Moon, which they have on tap, pairs really well with a lot of their food. Best irish pub in town... More

This place is the place that I miss the most in Montana! A wecoming and laid-back pub with mazing food and great staff! The burgers are the best that I've ever had, and the chips are great too! Guinness is always on tap, and it's a great place to chill and watch the game!

Eaten there hundreds of times since 1984 (same owner and crew) with their quality ingredients, onsite baking/chip making, and big food (it's why you see it packed with men munching on half-pound burgers, sandwiches the size of their heads, hearty soups, pints of Guiness, etc.) It's a very friendly place and quickly a favorite.

Not only is Pub Muhon's one of my favorite places in town but over the last ten years of going there, my favorite meals have never changed. They are consistent in serving their food with high expectations and always deliver. It is a comfortable place to relax for a nice beer too with their free popcorn and cozy atmosphere. The... More

I don't get it when restaurants purport to be an "Irish Pub" but have only limited Irish fare. Outside of specials, this place has little in the way of Irish food (Pasties are Cornish and Fish & Chips is English). My biggest issue was that, on a chilly, drizzling evening, they had no soup. No explanation, just no soup. The... More

Great pizza! They also offer free popcorn which the kids loved scooping from the huge can. We had a very large group and our server was excellent.

My favorite or 2nd favorite Restaurant in Downtown Billings. Their large selection of sandwichs put JJ's to shame and so does the quality of food and service with a smile and a rememberance of familiar faces. The Best Pork Chop Sandwich this side of Portland and Seattle by far.
