“Food good; service weird”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Bacon wrapped steak app & iron steak flatbread were good, dined 5:30-6pm & it was pretty empty inside, counted 5-7 servers coming & going at reception desk talking on phone, eating, sitting at nearby tables complaining about having to just wipe down tables, stroking hair, kidding around, doing jumping jacks. Tried to wave down 3 staff servers 5 times at the reception area to change drink, but all too busy, manager did come out then & talked to us & apologized for drink slip-up, price good, atmosphere okay, servers were friendly when we did get their attention, they have a pizza burger advertised on the table as NEW, but server never mentioned, which we would of tried. Kinda ignored on the way out by nearby staff, but did hear a far off "have a good night"from someone! Overall good food, staff needs attention from management. I'd try again to give them a 2d chance because I liked the food.

“Parents loved it, Kids hated it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I have never known kids to hate a pizza, but they hated this one. I believe it was because the sauce was a bit fresher and more authentic than the canned stuff they are used to. Or maybe it was the other way around? Not sure, but my husband and i loved it. We also ordered the awesome sausage tortelini. Please do not pass this one up. It is pretty pricey at 14 bucks per order but it is worth it. The garlic bread was just plain nasty and they should be ashamed of themselves for putting it on the plate. The pepp pizza was very good. OVerall, the place was hugely expensive. We spent 50 bucks for a medium pizza and two orders of tortelini and no drinks. The upside is that they also deliver. If you are staying at any of the local hotels, they will bring the food to you. Great if you have tired kids who have been at the beach all day and aren't up to going back out. Give it a try. I would love to know your opinion.

“I Expected Better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This looked like a nice, interesting place. However, I was disappointed with the overall experience as were my 2 colleagues.

Service was fine. Server was pleasant and attentive. Not the problem.

The food was very disappointing. The flatbread pizzas were very bland. Few toppings and sauce, and just plain boring. Like eating a toasted English Muffin with nothing on it.

The other person had a beef sandwich and, even though she is not a big eater at all, this was too small.

Fortunately, we were there for lunch, and paid the lunch "special" prices. Even so, given the size and bland taste of the food, this was no bargain. We should have gone elsewhere.

“After the 32oz beer???”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

After the 32os beer the taste buds kinda went on strike, selection was sort of short and sweet more focused on quick meals
