It's a chain, but it has it's great points, and they are the appetizer deals at happy hour, as well as service that was friendly and quick. Highly recommend the Bruschetta.

Enjoyed the pretzel bites and a pizza. I like the crust and sauce on the pizza. Pizza slices were huge! The beer cheese for the pretzel bites was great and you had plenty.
