This isn't a bash on my experience AT the bar, more like my experience with the bar. I live in the apt complex across the street and there is noise outside every night until anywhere from midnight to 3am!!! Even during the week. It is constant. I have had to call the bar several times to tell them to ask the people to keep it down and it works for a whole 20 minutes and then it is loud again. The drunk people should have to be respectful of the people who live here not the other way around.
It sucks because the food was so good and the drinks are reasonably priced. But the people running this place are completely clueless and make you feel stupid for ordering a drink. Worst bar in town!! Go anywhere else for a good time.
Omg! I couldn't agree with the person who made the comment on "Don" the owner of the dugout more! That dude is seriously a mental case and I'm really. Not kidding or exaggerating either. All I can say is wow! No wonder that bar has gone thru close to 10 bartenders in a matter of 3 wks. Also, I have heard from one nearby business owner and two totally different customers. That he is going on his 5th " sexual. harrasnent lawsuit ". I've watched the dude "freak out " b4 and it was freaking amazing! He did. It in the middle of the bar "which was packed" and it was directed at the bartender "who was a very friendly and fast " bartendender
The atmosphere is absolutely comfortable! The gourmet food, specially the Ribeye 12oz steak for under $12 will melt in your mouth, is so scrumpcious! Don also has a little humor and will remember your name, even if its not Fred? LOL... Kidding aside this family bar with excellent service will make you fill right at home on your very first visit! Then there is Mary the most beautiful bartendar in Portland and she is an avid Blazer fan and will talk sports with you anytime! As for you pool fanatics there is BCA on Wed and Thur nights and APA on Tuesday nights with 4 brand new Diamond regulation pool tables! So what you waiting for? Get over to Don's tonight and tell them Kurt sent you! I have been a faithful customer for over a year and will take you on in a pool game anytime!

Great place! I'm from a small town in So. Oregon and this was exactly the hometown feel I was looking for in a bar. Good drinks, cheap pool, jukebox, and friendly bartenders and customers! Would recommend to anyone looking for a laid-back bar to go to
Don's has a nice home type atmosphere. It is a pool players bar with $0.25 tables. They serve a good drink and the food is consistently good with healthy portions. Suggested for anyone that wants a laid back night or to get better at their pool game...
The owner Don..is a real jerk! No actually a real DICK! I went there when another guy owned it and it was the Wagon or Wagon Wheel or some shit like that. It was great then the other owner was hella cool(Rene was his name..I think) and it was a better place. I would not go back because of the owners complete lack of respect for all around him. He is condecending to his staff and to the customers. Being blatently rude to a beer delivery guy too. Just a total ASS. He should remain behind the scene. reasons I would go back are cheap drinks and free juke nice crowd. BUT I WON"T GO BACK! Went to the Happy Landing next and felt Happy!!!
