Kind of interesting entry to the restaurant but don't let that deter you. Once inside great food and atmosphere. The artichoke dip was amazing!! Pizza was excellent as well. The guys playing guitar were great, just the right volume.

Everytime we come here, it is like coming into a friendly warm little oasis. Food is nearly always amazing, the live music is wonderful. Like a private club, but better.
