The pizza is good. Not for leftovers tho. But the bartender Debbie is a total asset. Like the peanuts. The atmosphere is good. You have to try it and see for yourself.

This trip we picked up the pizza and brought it home so I really can't comment on the inside experience but, in the past the service is always great, the food excellent, love the peanuts.

As a party of six, we visited to celebrate a graduation on a Saturday evening. Although we put our name on the waitlist, we were sat in a matter of 7 to 10 minutes. This is one of those amazing places where you're allowed to...More
