Went with friends. Yes seating a little tight but could hear each other and just enjoyed the atmosphere! We had special entree and regular which were great . Our friends had salads and specialty pizza. We brought food home. Had drinks. Bill $60ish. We had a great meal and great time.

Got there early so we could get a seat outside on a beautiful day. Everything was perfect, service, food, ambience. Had the BLT combo with salad wedge.

We were walking around town and it looked good. We found it was good. Wait staff was helpful and attentive without going overboard. Very good experience.

We thought this place was a bit overrated. The pizza was okay but nothing special and the acoustics were pretty terrible. Not bad, just avergage.

Highly recommend, always a wait, no matter what night you go. If you're a craft beer drinker, you won't be disappointed!

We had an excellent grilled tuna special. It was cooked perfectly. We also had very good service. The seating was a little cramped. This was the only thing that kept it from being a 5 star review.

Stopped in after trick or treating, and had a very good plate of pasta and meatballs. Others had kale salad with salmon, and house salad with shrimp. All were very tasty. Lack in ambiance, good service and foods.

Whether you eat at the bar or in the dining room it is a great experience. Head to the second floor or the porch for a different experience. Try the pizza it is great. A popular relaxed restaurant. Local beers are featured.

My husband and I had a delightful lunch there today. He had the reuben sandwich and side salad and I had the small kale salad and the Greek lamb pizza. Everything was excellent. The kale salad had just the right amount of dressing on it and the raisins and other additions were perfect in this salad. The pizza was crisp... More
