    The decore was not what I had expected and did not match the price of the food. The place was packed so no one seemed to notice the rather dated furnishings. I have never had such a good steak since I moved to Florida ten years ago. I can not wait for another special occasion to return to this restaurant.

    I've been to the Pewter Mug about a half dozen times over the past several years. I fear the trend is not positive. The last two times my steaks were pretty ordinary--could have come from the supermarket. Not real tender, slightly off flavor, more grisly than they should be. Cooked perfectly, however. Baked potato had been in the oven WAY too long. Place has a dingy look and feel--"tired". Salad bar continues to be excellent, though. Given the ever growing number of really good steak places in Naples, Pewter Mug needs to get back on track if it wants to stay competitive.

    Pewter Pub needs remodeling. Opened in 1970 and looks like it. Salad bar is in a little room that has people trying to get in and out at the same time. Lighting is horrible and outside lighting is so poor restaurant looks closed. Prices are ridiculously high for this type of restaurant. Won't be back!

    I drive past Pewter Mug every day. I see many cars, so I wanted to know what was so special. I am sorry I wasted my time...and money. My mom wanted lobster tail. They were small and tasteless...and very pricey ($30). I guess the big deal is the salad bar...which was great. The soups were bland (especially the Italian Wedding soup). Never again.

    Pewter Mug is a great place for any occasion.....birthday, anniversary, etc. The soup and salad bar is a good starter for a wonderful meal. The prime rib we ordered was done to perfection. Tender, juicy and flavorful. Excellent! The service has always been awesome, no matter who the server is. Enjoyable dining.

    My wife and I had reservations for 5:45 and we arrived 15 or 20 minutes early. We were seated within a few minutes and waited on shortly thereafter. Our drink order was taken and arrived (with a welcome back) by the same friendly waitress we had the last time. We enjoyed the salad bar and a cup of clam chowder. The plates were cleared and in no time at all our lobster and prime rib dinners arrived with great sides of potatoes and sauteed spinach. we were too full for dessert (too much salad bar) but the last time we had fantastic key lime pie.

  • Awful
    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We should have known that this was going to be a bad experience when the staff started to vacuum the floor before we ordered drinks. The vacuuming persisted through most of our dinner. We found the salad bar to be one of the most ordinary salad bars, containing a few basic ingredients. The soup was tasty. My wife was so disgusted by the noise of the vacuum, and the unattractive decor, she lost her appetite and wanted to leave. Much to my regret, we stayed. She limited her order to the salad bar, I ordered baby back ribs. I was encouraged when the meat fell off the bone when touched by my fork. I was brought back to reality when I placed the meat into my mouth. The ribs lacked flavor, were too dry, and the sauce was tasteless.

    Salad Bar was excellent like it use to be before........Early Bird menu had good selections to choose from.......prime rib excellent......price good, too. Our server was most helpful/pleasant in suggestions and answered whatever questions we had for her. All in all good to see Pewter Mug back again like it was when it first opened up many years ago........will dine there, again. P.S. Just an FYI .........would be nice to extend "Early Bird" menu to 6:30 p.m.

    This is an established restaurant that specializes in seafood and beef. We had the Prime Rib and Beef Stroganoff. The salad bar is amazing...it would be possible to make a meal on that option with just an appetizer. A big shout out to the Key Lime Pie; one of the best pies I have ever tasted. The perfect combination of tang and sweet and the slice was quite large. The food was so good I left the restaurant feeling as I do after every Thanksgiving meal. The phrase "I can't believe I ate the whole thing springs to mind". We took advantage of the early bird discount. Dinner for 3 without drinks was 90.00 (tip not included),

    We hadn't been to the Pewter Mug for several years. This visit was to celebrate our 47th anniversary. We both ordered Prime Rib from the early bird menu. My first piece of meat wasn't rare enough but our server and the owner both made sure I got another plate with a super piece of meat. I ordered the lean cut at first but found out that the loin cut is juicier and can be more rare! The chicken vegetable soup was outstanding as was the salad bar. Happy Hor prices for the drinks were very resonable. We'll be back!

    The prime rib was excellent and it was prepared exactly as requested. The salad bar was small but well stocked with a good selection of fresh vegetables. While we did not have any soup from the soup bar many other patrons seemed to enjoy it. The prices where fair for the quality and quantity. I will certainly return.

    The Pewter Mug has been around forever, and their appeal for me is the great salad bar along w/the raisin bread, Always wondered why they squandered their beautiful setting by putting their parking lot next to the river--their dark windowless interior could have looked out over the river and an open deck would have topped it off.
