Quaint restaurant with much character!

We stopped here for dinner on a recent visit to St.Michaels. The ambiance of the back patio was amazing! Love the beer tap fountain! The wine was fabulous and we had the special watermelon salad which was perfect. We also had the special white pizza which was one of the best pizzas we ever tasted... read more

We ordered a hamburg and onion pizza to go. For $17.00 it was tiny, hardly anything on it and it tasted plain and dry. I've had better frozen pizzas. Maybe the entrees are better. After all of the rave reviews I expected much more.

I'd read so much about this place and ensured my husband and I popped in for lunch. We split a yummy arugula (rocket) watermelon and feta salad which was divine followed by freshly baked and artfully crafted stone baked pizza. I know when you're in St Michael's you'll want to eat so much crab that you eyes roll back, but... More

The quality of the food here is very good. The prices are a little high for the amount you receive. Unfortunately the wait can be very long and the staff is always hurried.

Recommended by our inn keeper and was definitely worth visiting. Fries with blue cheese for a starter, meatballs and pizza as main courses - so yummy! And great local beer as well. Pretty packed when we arrived, but the staff reacted quickly by opening the second floor. Worth the visit by all means!

Honestly, we visited this restaurant because it said "Wine Bar", but we REALLY enjoyed the pizzas they had to offer. If possible, sit on the back patio with the beer tap fountains. Great atmosphere for a friendly dinner. One of the best pizzas I have ever had!

This a long-term staple of St. Michael's restaurant scene. There are personal-sized pizzas that are tasty, with thin crust and a wonderful shrimp diablo dish, along with other pasta dishes, such as lasagna, but this shrimp diablo is quite tasty. The bar is a lively scene and can sometimes spill over into the dining room. People patronize the bar and... More

Delicious pizza and a great ambience. Our favourite was the chef pizza. Really enjoyed our family meal. Slightly pricy hence 4/5.

Wonderful thin crust pizza. Recommend homemade potato chips. Very comfortable, right on Main Street, reasonably priced.
