The atmosphere is nothing special, but the food and service were both really good. When we got there it was not crowded and a waitress told us to sit anywhere. The chef/owner(?) came out to say hi and explain menu items and take our order. I think the waitresses were busy. The menu mentioned a special pizza of the week, so we asked what it was, and the chef told us there wasn't one but he could make us something like a double pepperoni or a cheeseburger pizza. When we told him no, we wanted one of their specialty pizzas, the Tuscany, he got excited and explained that all the veggies and pesto were fresh. The Tuscany had Feta, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Artichoke Hearts, Basil and Pesto. And it was really really good. My wife, sons and I loved it. We got it with the grilled chicken on half. It had such a great flavor and the crust was really good. It had a great hand made yeast dough texture and flavor. It was also a good deal. We ordered one extra large pizza for $20 and we took three pieces home. It's a strange but good little place… dive-y atmosphere, good friendly staff, a salad bar instead of normal dimmer, side or entree salads… and really good "gourmet" pizza. We wouldn't hesitate going again.

Warm Beer and Lousy Pizza, nice slogan, we found none of those on this night. The place was packed (last night for prime rib - must be good - lots of people were eating it). We had the pizza and it was some of the best we've ever eaten and the beer was cold. Service was very good considering the crowd.

We stopped in for lunch one day. We were greeted and seated right away. I had the burger and my wife have a french dip.The food was served quickly and fresh. Everything was cooked perfectly. The waiter/ slash bartender was very helpful and friendly.We will be sure to stop in next time we are down.

Or so their saying goes - we got wings to go - should have known better when the order taker asked if we wanted them run trough the conveyor twice! Still soggy and greasy. Place always seems busy but i guess the beer is better than the food!

Average bar food & pizzas. The last time we were there & had a bite to eat in afternoon....we wanted two glasses of tap water with lemon & we had to pay for 2 orders of lemon. Waitress was not pleasant at all. It falls down to bottom of list.
