I’ve driven past this place for years and this past weekend decided to stop and check it out… I wish I would have stopped in years ago! Their pizza is excellent, the service was excellent and the staff in general was all extremely happy and nice. I did try their fried zucchini sticks, they were very disappointing and in my... More

Held our Christmas party for work there in one of the upstairs rooms. The buffet was delicious. The atmosphere was very warm and cozy, just like being in someone's Antebellum home for the holidays.

Fantastic food from the salad to the main course! I couldn't even eat my entire entrée because the salad was so large. (Which is great by the way!) My friends dined with me also, and they had the baked crab dip and while I did not try it myself, they indicated that it was incredible. The atmosphere is fantastic albeit... More

Driving back to WV from metro Baltimore, we took the opportunity to "stop and smell the pizza". We were seated in the Pizza Celler, which was worth negotiating the low head room staircase for-just adorable. The specialty pizzas were tasty, as was the crab bisque and crab appetizer. Service was great (Megan), too. We'll certainly stop again.

We were driving back from our Thanksgiving break, and had planned to stop at the Hen House, but checked the hours (on a Sunday evening) and figured out that we weren't going to make it there before it closed. We had recently had Puccini recommended to us by good family friends so we took advantage of the chance to give... More

The pizza was perfect; crispy edges, soft center, not too much sauce. My daughter's fettuccine alfredo was just right, al dente pasta and a white wine sauce. Right off the highway, well worth the stop.

Hand tossed, cooked over a wood fire, fresh toppings, you can't go wrong. They also have some pizzas with unusual toppings. Try it, you will like it. We went there to meet a very nice couple last year. It is halfway between our place and theirs. Was good enough to get us back again this year. Nice rustic setting in... More

Food and service were both quite good - lots of beer choices. Portions were very large - my wife and I each had a salad and split the lasagna. Plenty of food, and the prices are reasonable.
