From the beginning you can have happy hour in the bar area and dining in the back. Located next door to parking structure making access easy. Food and prices are good with a positive vibe

Advertised as “Stone Hearth Pizza” but definitely taste like a frozen pizza from a Costco. Aside from that, service was good and ambiance was nice.

I headed here for dinner with a few friends on a Saturday night for an 8PM reservation. We were seated right away in a booth in the back dining room. The service was great. They were super patient with us, not rushing us at all....More

As I remember, there are small side dining rooms for private parties. Been a while since we dined here so I don't know how much of how it is set up now. Advise a quick call - they are very accommodating!
