The food is good, bread sticks are good, overall it's good BUT I drank so much soda that I was sick the next day but I got a good deal for a party room.

Dressed like an old-fashioned diner with vinyl flooring, red & white tables and exposed brick faux walls and an open, industrial ceiling makes for a charming look, but the noise level was astronomical. We were the only table in the restaurant eating, but had a hard time hearing each other as well as the waitress due to the blaring music!... More

We ate there today, 8/7/16. The food was great, absolutely delicious, but what impressed me the most is how they let me "alter" my order. I wanted the Chicken Broccoli Stromboli, only I don't eat bread (carbs) so they made me one with the same ingredients, but w/o the pizza dough that makes the Stromboli. They did not charge extra...

I've been here for lunch and supper; enjoyed everything I've ever had here. They have daily specials that make this a pretty good place to eat pizza on a budget. Good service and atomosphere

We needed another pizza and the 2nd came out right away! (I have 4 teenage boys who are bottomless pits). Our food was HOT, CORRECT and super YUMMY! Our server was happy... More

Mediocre pizza at premium price. The toppings were low quality and quantity. I had a Hawaiian pizza. They forgot the bacon. My son's meal was microwaved leftovers. My daughter's tortellini would have been ok if it was warm but it waited on the kitchen counter while the chicken was over cooking. The chicken was nasty, dried out, and dripping in... More

Very good pizza. Loves the sauce. Great variety of different pizzas, and other Italian eats. We had the T-Rex 18" - couldb't eat it all. We'll be back.

We decided to try their pizza (having heard it was 'Chicago' style). The atmosphere was fun with a 'diner' type decor. The pizza was very good. We like to pick it up and fold it. The appetizers were good. We would definitely recommend.

Called ahead to place an order for pick up on our way to our local craft brewery. We ordered a sausage sandwich and a calzone, I was so impressed with the calzone, it was awesome!! Very GOOD, MY husband was a bit disappointed in the sausage sandwich, somewhat small for what he was wanting, but it too was good. But,... More

We ended up here as my wife had a coupon for buy one pizza, get a 2nd free through a school fundraising booklet. It was our first time here, and we will definitely be going back. The server, Zachary, was very personable and on top of things. Never had to ask for a refill, he kept an eye on the... More
