Had a nice evening with my wife. We had a pizza and some homemade root beer. Was very good pizza and the root beer was ok. Waitress took special care of us and kept our glasses full with a friendly smile

We've always had good food here. The pizza is very good and it's award winning. I like the potato pancakes meal a lot. Service can be a bit sketchy especially during busy times.
