Great with little kids

Food and drinks were great, and service was even better (Houston was our server and he was amazing!!). We came with 7 people of all ages and we all left full and happy. I wouldn't come here for a romantic dinner, but for fun with family it's perfect.

Visited on the Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend, after reading the reviews. Cool place, nice atmosphere - but far from being the best pizza I've ever had. It was decent, don't get me wrong - but for a $26 large pizza and this being their speciality, it fell short in my opinion. Staff is busy and hustling and it... More

My husband and I shared the hummus, feta and olives starter, then the base camp pizza. We enjoyed both. We also enjoyed the choice of beers on offer. All in all a good choice and would go again.

Excellent pizza, tried the roasted vegetable and base camp special pizzas. Both were very good. Lively place with good atmosphere and discount by staying at the Marriot.

We got a couple different kinds of pizza and both were excellent. Mozzarella sticks are amazing! Sit outside after you get done eating and enjoy the live music!

Lots of people have recommended this pizza place and with good reason. The pizzas tasted healthy, came in three sizes (personal, medium and large) and you can take remainders with you. There is a good selection of local wine and beer and the cocktails looked great. There was live music outside and TV screens showing baseball in. Only downside was... More

The pizza was extremely good and they have nice options of beer as well as wine. They even have live music which made the night even more special. They have different sorts of seating which include bunch of couches as well as a projector to make you feel really comfortable.

We dined here in the "off season" and our waiter said about half of the other diners were locals (who like to come when it us not crowded with tourists ). My Greek salad was superb and there was plenty of it. We shared a gluten-free pizza and the pizza crust was one of the best we've had. Plenty of... More
