I have only been here for lunch, but ate here twice in two days. LOVE the wedge salad and the pizza. Husband had the Max Club and he said it was delicious. The second day he had the chicken salad and I can say, that chicken is the best I have tasted. Great atmosphere, servers are great and very friendly.... More

We had to go twice because we loved it the first time. Great salads and veggie options...unusual ingredients together that just work! If we are ever back in Hendersonville, will go there again!

Food is consistently good. I especially alike the wood-fired pizzas that come in two sizes. Servers are accomodating. Prices are reasonable.

Best wood fire pizza in Hendersonville. Excellent beer selections. Cold, fresh, wedge salad with great toppings. Inside, or outside seating. Can be noisy at night with long waits at times. Reservations only for 6 or more. Pasta and other salads also delicious.

We are lunch here during the Apple Days Extravaganza. The food was good (since moving from the western US we've had to lower out standards) and fairly priced. A simple and not too large of menu. My Reuben came on white bread and needed more sauerkraut. My wife's meatball sandwich was delicious but barely had any sauce on it. Staff... More

For starters, I have to say the pizza was good. So it's a real disappointment that we were seated at literally the worst table in the house, because it really dampened my impression of the place. They were busy when we arrived, and after waiting 20-30 minutes, we were shown to a table upstairs. The upstairs area has one too... More

This place is a very cool and modern atmosphere with a nice selection of varied fresh items on the menu. Great beer on tap selection just at the edge of town.

We came right before 8 and had to wait only a few minutes since the restaurant is very popular, understandably! Very delicious meal! They make their own pasta which was delicious , tried a bite. My husband had the Campari pizza and he said it was amazing and beats a national ranked best pizza ranked by Rachael Ray that we... More
