Ordered a waffle with pecan maple bourbon syrup…really looking forward to that. After waiting a very long time (and i was the only patron) i received the dish with an explanation from the hostess that they were out of the pecan maple bourbon syrup and...it has the berry compote instead. Ok…but why not tell me they were out when i’d ordered it or as soon as they realized they were out…and let me make another choice? Just bringing me the dish made it awkward and uncomfortable to then say…er, i’m not a berry fan…it was pretty odd. The hostess apologized and said the chef didn’t realize they were out and checked all over the to find it. Ok. But it’s still not what i ordered so… Anyway, she noted my blank stare and asked if they could make me something else instead or in addition. Uh, no…i’m 40 min., into this experience now and thought i’d eat it hot and move on. But I said, maybe an egg? (the egg was perfectly scrambled and light and creamy) So…the waffle was cold and topped with a scoop of …margarine. Really? There was a dollop of dessert cream (wonderful!). The syrup was served in a small metal cup…to be served warm im guessing but it was very cold and the cup had refrigerator condensation on it, so it’s apparently divided up prior to serving and kept cold…but i’m sure not meant to be served that way. So, sadly, not a good meal. :(More

I didn’t know what it meant when menu said “enhanced toppings.” It means LOADED with cheese and whatever else you asked for. Not like other places where you can count the pieces of mushroom they begrudgingly put on your order. Pizza, YUM! 🍕 Caesar Salad,...very tasty. 🥙 Young lady who took my order through the glass, couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. 🧍🏻‍♀️ I will definitely go back..... often.More

Ridiculously good ranch dressing! Both of us loved our pizza. Cool place very chill and laid back. Definitely would go back just for the ranch.

Attractive menu options all around, and an appealing place with a variety of indoor and outdoor seating. But, just a so-so meal. The Spinaccio salad was perhaps a poor choice. It cane with spinach, feta, sliced pears, figs and a pouched egg. But the egg...was one tiny step beyond raw, and who wants that yolk running into your spinach leaves. Add to this was the fact that the sliced pear slices were simply hard. All in all, the salad was a dud. The pizza we waited a long time for and when it came the underside was way too brown. It tasted okay but nothing special. Besides a selections of brews, the offer Stubborn sodas on tap which are marvelous. My partner wanted to ding this place with two stars, but I prevailed and gave it three. Still, disappointing enough to go elsewhere next time.More

If you're craving pizza with just the right blend of tradition and non-conformity, go no further! The flavor will make you smile with each bite; the diverse menu will keep you coming back. Our order of salad and pizza satisfied the whole table. My only...disappointment was the off-brand fountain soda choices.More

We came here one evening to get take away's. We placed a small order for three pizza's and a salad. We sat around waiting and waiting and waiting and asked about our order and waited some more. Must have been somewhere between 30 and 40...minutes waiting for it and then was pretty disappointed with it. Had plans to come back the following night with a group, but we decided against it and went to another place in the vicinity.More

Awesome thin crust pizza! The Hawaiian with jalapeños is my favorite. The salads are great too - LOVE the beet one and Penthos. Don't forget dessert - the Nutella s'mores panini is incredible. Happy hour is awesome as well. $2 off beer & wine on...tap, and 20% off pizza! Service is great and the staff are friendly and helpful!More

We ordered a few kinds of pizza and a salad, for take-away. Margherita, Vulcan, Artemis (Meat Lover's), Hawaiian pizzas with a Penthos salad (yes, I'm referring to their online menu to get the names right). Everything was delicious. Thin crust pizzas with flavourful toppings. I...ate the Margherita and Vulcan pizzas (both vegetarian) and loved them both. I'm just in town for a week, so will not likely get to enjoy this pizza again, but I'm so glad my friends ordered from there last night!More

We stopped on our way home for a quick pizza. It was good. I think eating there would make it great. We tried the meat lovers and the Daphne. Right out of the oven would be better than a ten minute drive home. We will...stay next time. Staff was great while we waited.More

I'll start by saying pizza is not a go to item for me, but we are new to the area and I thought why not? If you're visiting down here and have a beach day or a pool day... hey ever a Legoland day this...is a great spot to finish the day. You walk in and look around to find a few huge booths out front (seats maybe 12) with big tables to eat on in between plus tables on the side. There is just a very cool feel at the place. You just feel happy, maybe it's the easy free parking... Food is off the chart. Salads, apps and the main star.. pizza of all kinds. Or build your own custom deal. I get this barbecue chicken that is the best ever had. And the next night at home, better! Or cold! Beer is on point. Lots of local stuff and a staff that knows their beer. Decent wine list. I go with a nice Malbec. Wife goes chard. Service is so fun and passionate about the food and drinks. Great spot!More

My family met an old friend here for dinner. The location is close to the beach. The atmosphere is relaxed. The food is amazing. Fresh, crisp, so flavorful. Get the bruschetta, you will love it!
