Stopped in while staying at the Flying Frog B&B. Pizza was good, and the service was fast and friendly. It's also a good spot to watch spots while dining.

It's not fast food and the restaurant is usually busy so wait times on food make sense. Service is always friendly and food has always been delicious. I make it back in every chance I get. Keep up the good work Willard!!
