Thin crust pizza. Good price. A nice selection of beer. We ate in the bar area. They have a family dining area. Nice and simple after a long week.

They have a nice arcade selection to play. The pizza fries, poppers, & pizza that we ordered were average at best. There was full bar and good amount of beers on tap.

Their lunch buffet is reasonably priced and they are great at making sure the buffet always has a nice variety of hot, fresh pizza. Plus they include soups, dessert sticks, and salads. Nice place!
