Good pizza with a good crust! We ordered mozzarella sticks, as well, which were tasty. Very friendly staff. Not much seating there, so plan on carrying out.

We got pizza after a day of beach and lighthouse adventures! We called in our order and they gave a short 20 minute pick up time! It was yummy and great service! Will eat there again!
