The restaurant is separate from the bar so you can pick which kind of atmosphere you are looking for. The restaurant is small but you can usually get in right away no problem. The bar reminds me of a small town bar. Small, a lot of regular patrons and you can get your own popcorn to snack on at your table! The servers are good, not as friendly as I would expect but they typically don't leave you waiting long for your food/drinks. Ole Piper has been very accomodating in the past for our kids' youth team parties. They even shut down the dining room and we had the entire room on a Sunday afternoon! I recommend this for a night out with family or friends for some pizza and great conversation!
