The pizza was great and the draft was crafty and reasonably priced. It is great to find this kind of place along the Interstate! Highly recommended!

With glowing reviews and many complements from other members of my family, we made our way to the restaurant after our visit to the Outer Banks. The restaurant was not busy and we were seated promptly, however our waitress was not very friendly. With thoughts of being healthy I ordered a goat cheese and arugula spinach pizza and 2 bowls...

Went here with my family, three boys 16,14,11 and my wife. Appetizers were good, crab dip great, meatball solders ok. Pizza all around and we were happy with our selections. Many different rooms, liked that the music wasn't too loud, or that it wasn't too cold and not too noisy. Enjoyable dinner, would go again!

On the way by on interstate and saw sign and had just read reviews so decided to stop. Was good choice as the food was very good and my wife and daughter made it a history stop as well. They roamed about the building including the unfinished area to view the Civil War art on the attic walls. Was fun... More

We were extremely pleased with the pizza as well as the crab dip which was served with "cheesy bread" which was pretty much a tasty white pizza. We sat downstairs in the... More

We have driven past this place many times on the way to DC. We finally took time to stop. The food (crab cake, pork chop and honey cake) were good. Heather provided good service. This place is worth your time. A definite recommend.

Stopped here on the way back home. Neat place and the pizza was really good. Got half pepperoni and half mushroom. Service was good and our waitress was nice. Would stop by here again!

We stopped by for dinner after picking up my son from basketball camp. When we called, we were told to make a reservation. Upon arriving, there may have been 5 tables filled. We were seated in a room next to the kitchen. Hanging over the door was one of the "bug zappers." No wonder we were inundated with flies!!! They... More
