Great happy hour!

My husband and I went on a Sunday afternoon. We sat in front of the open window facing downtown Willoughby! What an awesome view. We each ordered the $5 pizza. I ordered plain and my husband ordered sausage. They were baked in an open stone oven. They were both delicious. My husband ordered the... read more

Ate here a few days ago with work colleagues. Found the service to be very good. The staff were very responsive to everyone's needs, very polite and gave some good information about menu choices. Would certainly eat here again.

The food we had was excellent. Craft beer selection was superb, and on a Wednesday night a real bargain. I had the flatbread pizza which was very easy and much larger than I expected. My wife had a burger that she pronounced perfect. The prices were very reasonable. The interior was somewhat funky but interesting. I highly suggest that you... More

I was here randomly. I decided to sit at the bar for a quick drink. Good selection of draft beer. Bartender was nice. I will come back the next time I am in town.

Met out of town friends at Ballantine's for drinks and dinner. Would love to have had one of the booths in the front where the windows are wide open, but seats were full. Drinks and food were excellent, had quite a variety of food at our table from wings, sushi, flat bread and entrees. Will definitely go back.
