I love sitting outside in the summertime and this place has a great space for that. I came here for an early dinner on a Saturday night and was surprised and the massive drink selection. I went for a nice blueberry ale that went grey with the Belgian mussel appetizer. So good. And for the pizza I shared a large... More

I see from the other reviews, my experience might be an outlier. I had lunch here today - because I've not been before - and was pretty unimpressed. They have a great 10$ lunch special - a small pizza and salad. The salad was impossible to goof up - so thumbs up on that. But the pizza i had was... More

Went here with our extended family (18 people) including infants without making a reservation. They were able to seat us quickly and the atmosphere was great. Beer selection is excellent and all the food I tried was very good. Can recommend the hot wings and smokey blue pizza specifically.

This is my go-to restaurant for great pizza and a superb beer selection in the Court House area, usually before enjoying a show in the superbly remodeled AMC Court House theatere with barcolounger seating and reservations. Nice outdoor patio with fire places, great service all around.

Good food, fast service. If I hadn't been here before I would have even rated it higher. They changed the menu a little bit, which was kind of disappointing. Otherwise, highly recommend.

They advertise their pizza. It's o.k. -- nothing special. Thin crust is o.k. The toppings are typical and limited to typical. The outdoor setting is quite nice, located along a long wall of the Residence Inn hotel. Awnings to shade you by day, blue lights in the public pavement at night. And, oh yea, true to the place's name, there's... More

My fiancee and I go here many weekends for dinner. The selection for vegetarians isn't huge, but we like their veggie burger and grilled cheese a lot. The selection of beers is rivalled only by Rustico locally, as far as I'm aware. They have three huge tv's on the wall over the bar with the most important games of the... More

When this place first opened we gave it a try and have consistently returned over the past couple of years. I like bourbon and my guy likes IPA beer. On that first visit they had a wide variety of IPA options for him and my favorite bourbon label. The pizza was delicious so it quickly became our "go to" place.... More

Food was good and ambience was nice. I would say that the pizza is heavy because of the fontina cheese. I would also like to point out you can't do OpenTable so have their number ready. They got busy very fast. Enjoy!

Stopped in here with a friend for a late night beer and dessert. Tried their hot cookie dough sundae which was the most disgustingly awesome dessert I've tried. It's like a creme brulee, but with cookie dough - cookie crust on top with amazing dough underneath. Unbelievable. And I ate the whole thing. Would go back here when not dieting!
