Service by Anna excellent. Ordered a Rex burger the same way i've ordered dozens of times. This one was special. It took an hour to bring me a hockey puck with canned mushrooms in a bowl. I think they let it sit outside for ten minutes. Very disappointed. I paid for it. Not sure what I was thinking but I... More

Very confusing with many rooms. Staff standoffish to the point of rude. But they have the best pizza. Great deal on pizza and wings.

Taste is great. Very old school style as you would expect. I do find the crust a little to thin and sometimes over done. Could also use a little extra sauce, but they will accommodate.

Like I said this was the best pizza I've had since moving to Ontario. Cooked well generous toppings and crisp thin crust. Really delicious. My husband liked the wings as well and even though I'm not a fan of wings I thought they were excellent too. Be prepared the bar area is noisy and a bit cozy and reminiscent of... More

The food is great! The pizza is the best. The service is good but can be slow some times. A group of us try and meet as often as possible to enjoy the food and play catch up for it is about the only time we can all get together. I highly recommend it.
