Best pizza in town. We went for happy hour on a Tuesday night and had a booth in the back room to ourselves. The pizza was 1/2 off, and we had ordered a 12 inch with all our favorite ingredients there are many to choose from). It was very pleasant and all for a total of $14- great reasonable early dinner

We came here with two other couples for a dinner of (wait for it).... pizza and beer. The beer list is exceptional with 27 on tap. I recommend the Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday IPA. Delicious. We ordered the pimienta (sp?) pizza that was quite tasty. Wait staff was very patient as the more beer we drank, the more hilarious we thought we were. I will be back for more IPA and pizza.

Great comfort food, reliable service. I like the back room with a beer and friends. A relaxing local place with fresh ingredients. It's an IC classic.

Standard pub "long room" setup with bar on one side and tables on the other, kitchen in the back. Furnished in dark wood. Street parking.

Menu fairly simple with mostly burgers, pizza and sandwiches. Food quality a step above most pubs. Service attentive and efficient. Very good selection of craft beers. Seemed to have a lot of cocktail and wine choices too though I'm not really into those.

The pizza was very good. They have a large selection of beer. Some of the beer is local to Iowa and others is not. It is a very quiet and cute atmosphere.
