A very busy restaurant, and worth the wait! They text you when your table is ready so you can go to another less crowded bar for drinks while you wait. Food was very good. Service was outstanding.

Stopped in for lunch on a holiday weekend. Downtown was packed, but inside wasn't nearly as busy. Food was great, cocktails were good. Atmosphere was pleasant. The service was ok, the server was obviously frazzled- the food more than made up for it!

We opted for pizza buffet and had very nice wood fired pizza. The buffet was small and a large group of high school kids invaded, but the 3 pieces I had we're very good. Cost of 7.95 was worth it

We were there in the late afternoon (4:45), so they wouldn't serve any dinner items (that starts at 5pm) and they wouldn't serve the pizza from downstairs upstairs in the main room. So I decided to get one of their burgers. It was greasy and...More

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
