Pizza was expensive and it took forever, but it just wasnt anything exciting. It was pretty bland and we ordered 4 different pizzas.....just mainstream, nothing fantastic. We were there before and got a private "cell" that was much more fun! I couldnt think of a reason that we would return

Ate here for the first time and loved the atmosphere. The waitstaff was very friendly. It is a very neat place to eat as is was the old jailhouse and parts of the actual jail is still there. It was fun and a beautiful view of the river.

Looks like we had a better experience than others did. The location is very cool and unique - I like the old jailhouse! The pizza was really good! The garlic knots were alright - nothing I hadn't had at other places just as good. The only other con I give it was the initial service. No one was at the... More

I love the idea of reusing an old jail as a restaurant and seeing the old newspaper clipping about the history was neat. We had a small wait and then we were seated on the deck with a nice view of the river. We didn't know until after that we could have been seated in an old jail cell, we... More

We went on a Tuesday and arrived just after they opened because we didn't want to deal with crowds, rushed waitresses or cooks and it seems to have worked out well. We were the first customers in and were seated right away. We were asked if we wanted a booth or table and we chose the booth. Great view of... More

This is a great idea to revitalize a closed jail building. There is an option to eat in old jail cells which is a creative idea. The atmosphere was great and the food was good. The only downside was feeling that the employees were annoyed that there were customers they had to wait on.

Drove 40 miles to try the place. First my kid got a splinter in her hand holding on the wooden hand rail going in. Had to hold on due disabilities. Walked in and no one was waiting. Stood in the hall for 15 minutes before I flagged someone down for a seat. Then 4 more people peeked out at us... More

This place was very busy the night we went. It has a great atmosphere and lots of cool things to look at while you wait. You can eat in a jail cell. Creepy, but cool. The pizza had a weird spice in the sauce. It almost tasted like nutmeg. The crust was not good at all and a little to... More
