We stopped over for dinner on a Sunday night and sat in the outdoor patio. Our group of five ordered an assortment of sandwiches, salads, and pizza; the pizza was the most delicious choice, the other items were not too exciting. Our waitress was friendly, gave great suggestions, and was attentive. We'll be back for more pizza!

My fiancé and I were delighted with this restaurant. We enjoyed eating outside on the patio surrounded by little white lights on a beautiful summer evening. The food was good, service good and atmosphere very romantic.

We enjoyed a nice lunch here on the way through Roanoke. Both a shop owner and customer at the shop recommended it. Food choices were good, flexible on different requests and very reasonable. Service was a bit inconsistent, but once a different server identified that we needed help, every request was met with a smile. We'd go back.

We were in from out of town and love trying new places. The pizza and burgers were great! Worth the stop in!!! If you can only come once, I'd get the pizza. It was homemade dough and the best brick oven bake I've ever had. We also indulged in the brick oven s'more--- totally worth it very penny for a... More

Food was incredible. Have been 3 times traveling through. Loved the outdoor dining with the appropriate temps. Inside is good too. The chipotle chicken is my fav, but the pizza is also good. So love the atmosphere and the food. This is one of my "must stop" places when traveling to or through Roanoke, VA!

One of the best restaurants in town. The menu is varied and there is a kid's menu. I loved the patio seating and the inside of the restaurant is very, very, cozy. There were lots of kids there, but I would only bring them at lunch...I think the evening crowd might be a little different. They have wood fired pizza... More

My son and I stopped here after driving the Blue Ridge Pkwy from Asheville. The food was good--well prepared, hot, tasty. But if you come, drink beer. I asked about the wine. All their wines are from the same supplier; I asked the waitress to bring me a taste of the Cabernet. It was undrinkable. Pet friendly (tables are outside)

A very busy, small restaurant. Four of us gave this a try. The service was good. The food was reasonably good. Three of us had either hot dogs or bratwurst, while I had a hamburger. Good fare if not spectacular.

We ate here because of the rating on Trip Advisor. It was a fun little restaurant back behind another shop and beside 7-11. We enjoyed a Hawaiian pizza. It was delicious and the waitress was friendly and attentive. Try it!!
