Another Great Experience!

This place is very popular with locals so if you go during peak hours, you will have to wait. We had another great meal here--roasted corn chowder soup, meatballs, the BLT salad and beverages. The staff is friendly and efficient. The pizzas are very popular and they use a wood fired oven. They have... read more

The staff favorite pizza is one of the best pizzas I've ever had. They have gleuten-free pizza and organic produce. Make sure you know it's going to be thin crust. They also support local farmers and businesses.

Get the goat cheese. Love goat cheese and this hit the spot. Pizza was fantastic, and beer. Who doesn't love beer. Oh, the beet salad. Grab that too.

Liked the pizza and appetizer of tuna. Ordered the bacon pizza which I never had before. Surprisingly not too salty and combined with the cheese and tomatoes, it was so good. Beers were warm and a bit flat.

I love this place. It's tight but social. The pizzas are amazing. The popcorn is a must. And don't you dare leave without trying the pudding. The seating is a little tight so be prepared to be in everyone's way all the time if you are sitting inside. Also, be sure to be prepared to wait for a table.

Delicious unique pizza creations, and tasty craft beer selections. Also a great selection of starters. We chose the gluten free crust pizza with 5 kinds of mushrooms. Great service. Very busy restaurant.

Excellent food. I love their pizzas. They are thin crust, but that is what I prefer. All of the combos I've tasted are great. Their cheese is killer. Only problem... busy. Go at an off time. I'm a local and my favorite place for pizza

Visited this restaurant with a few girlfriends for an evening out. There was a wait when we got there, so they took a cell number and called us when our table was ready. It's a small restaurant, and it was tight getting in/out of tables...but not a big deal. They have some unique things on the menu. Things are organic... More

Waiter was excellent, pizzas were great and general feel of the place was very positive. We will be back. The best salad with candied walnuts I've ever had, so fresh. This is real food.

A small noise...crowded pizza place...w a good menu...appetizers, salads and pizza....not a consistent cuisine. When we go out for a meal, first we look for good food, then service and atmosphere...we absolutely need at least 2 of them.. To be fair, they have good music, use local produce...but.... Their food it's ok, service horrible and place too crowded...forget about talking...and,... More
