“Excellent choice for lunch or dinner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Our daughter-in-law picked this spot for us to have lunch. Nice choice! We split the daily pizza special and ordered some of the mini burgers also to share. All Excellent and different from the normal everyday pizza (they have that too). The best was the Apple or Pear Salad. This can get busy so plan ahead. Worth the wait! I would dine here frequently if we had a Matchbox near our Illinois home.

“Awesome "Girls Night"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We reserved the large table at the top of the stairs. I originally thought we would only have 12 (that is what the table comfortably fits) but we ended up having 16 ladies!!! The staff was amazing... they brought the chairs up fast and we all squeezed in. They were very attentive. The waitress kept taking the drink orders as soon as additional ladies arrived. She was on top of it. When our food order came, they had a ton of staff - probably 10 servers or so - delivering our food to make sure everyone received their dishes at the same time! A table of 16 is a lot to manage and our waitress, along with the rest of the staff handled it with ease. We will definitely return for another girls night! Oh and by the way... the food was AMAZING. I had the chopped salad (I asked for gorgonzola on top) and the Mini Trio of scallops, crab cake and sliders. Everyone loved their dishes.

“Great Waitress!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Our waitress took extra time to help us pick out the beer we might like and even brought samples before we ordered. The pizza selection is amazing and the taste is great! It happened to be an exceptionally gorgeous evening, so we sat outside and the atmosphere was perfect. Good service, good food, pretty good value. I moved from the area a few years ago and was back visiting; all my friends had heard of this place and highly recommended it.

“A WELCOME SURPRISE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Didn't expect such delicious pizza even though that is obviously the signature dish. Only had the spcey meatball pie (Large-$22) so don't know how anything else is but the pizza was excellent. Service was very good as well - Highly recommended.
