New gastropub opens up shop in downtown Marquette

There's a new hotspot in downtown Marquette, named DIGS. The gastropub takes its name from its owners, Double Trouble Entertainment's Bill and Pat Digneit and Alyssa Pilot.

It's located in the former Doghouse pub and is enlivening the 100 block of Washington Street with live music, parties, and good food and drinks, as of early March.

DIGS serves up burgers and other pub fare for lunch and dinner, but with a foodie influence, like the Eisenhower burger, which uses black ale batter, thick-cut bacon, soda-pop barbecue sauce and sharp cheddar cheese, or their poutine, made with house-smoked beef brisket, wild mushroom ragout and Wisconsin cheese curds. The chef is Andrew Sear, known locally for creative menu items and tasty food.

It's open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week and is located at 154 West Washington in Marquette. So far, the reviews seem good, so let us know if you've checked it out!
