Br in your puppy and sit outside and enjoy beer and pizza. The menu offers many options, but the wood-fire pizza is wonderful. The appetizers are great. The lobster tacos are excellent as is the pear salad. Great beer and wine list.

Bidwell is definitely a good choice if you are into oysters as they offer $2.00 local oysters on the half-shell. Delicious! they don't have as much variety in selection like other places, but that price is worth it. The rest of their food is certainly...More

When my group went there, I made a reservation. They serve wine, and also permit wine to be brought in for a corkage fee.
