The service when busy is lacking. Waters not refilled, plates not cleared unless you stacked them at the end of the table. Food was ok. If you have kids do not come here. The 9$ kids pizza is a joke. Put your thumb and pointer...More

I honestly don't know if they take reservations. It's usually pretty busy in spite of the high prices and the fact that it's BYOB
