Service is great from the hostess, to the bartender, to the waitress. Food is excellent. Drinks made to order if necessary. We stop in here at least twice a summer and once in winter while skiing. Highly recommend.

The pizza are unlike anything else (cause they make 'em with ingredients used in brewing beer down the street!). They even have a gluten- free pizza option which is tops! The bartenders, pick one, are friendly and extremely efficient. And the place is clean.
