Go downstairs and have some great pizza! The bar is lively and the service is great! Just don't expect it to be quiet and intimate.

We ate in the downstairs for pizza and pasta versus the upstairs grill. It was warm and cozy on a chilly night. It was nicely decorated for Christmas, and had TV's to "watch the game". Also, the food was good, and they worked hard to...More

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
