Food is consistently excellent...no matter what you order. There is something for everyone throughout the great menu. Also, the $5 pizzas before 7 PM every evening does wonders for the budget. Overall, a terrific restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

Really enjoyed everything we had. Tasty, and beautiful. Can't figure out why the hole town isn't there every night between 5 pm and 7 for the $5 pizzas, which are really good ----- best $5 pizza of all time.

This is our go-to place for dinner out with the kids, extended family, friends from out of town, etc...Great individual pizzas, salads, as well as traditional fare. Very reasonable prices, and good beer and wine specials from time to time.

Our dinner was delightful, and we enjoyed the outdoor patio with delightful greenery all around us! The waitress stayed on task with our request for added drinks. I enjoyed my steak immensely, as it was juicy and done to my liking!
