Stopped in for dinner. Good beer selection on tap, but a little limited. Ordered pizza and it was very good. Nice flavor and crust. Bread sticks with cheese were good. Nicely decorated. Good local spot. Will be back to try other things on the menu.

Low key yummy dinner. If you want something fancy don't come here. Good service. Great for a burger and a beer.

The restaurant has a bar atmosphere with a deck at the back. We chose to eat outside since it was pretty noisy inside. Unfortunately, the deck was dark and the table and chairs were uncomfortable. The waitress was friendly but not real prompt with the...More
