We chose to eat here after seeing it advertised in the coupon book. We were very happy with the food and service that we actually ate here twice during our stay. Drinks were also very good.

We were staying for a long weekend in Virginia Beach and wanted to try some different restaurants in the area. This one was conveniently located and we saw a coupon in our visitor's guide that had a good deal...a large pizza and garlic/cheese bread sticks plus bottomless soft drinks for $24. The breadsticks were great, and the price was right (we added a Greek salad for the non-pizza-lover in our family and I had a beer; total bill for the evening including taxes and tip was less than $40). We even had more pizza than we could eat, so we took several slices home for breakfast. The downsides -- the pizza was just OK (hard to see the ingredients or crust under all the cheese!) and the restaurant atmosphere was unpleasant -- very loud 90s rock so you could barely hear yourself or the waitress, screaming kids at other tables, dirty bathrooms and a fairly surly server. It's more of a bar with some tables around it than a restaurant. Outside might have been quieter people-watching on Atlantic Avenue, but it was a very hot evening and several chain-smokers were camped out there (not the musical group). Bottom line: go for the cheap eats, but don't expect more than a cheap experience.

Thanks so much for your helpful review. We will definitely correct the loud music issue. We will also address the issue with too much cheese on the pizza. Not good!

We were desperate to find a dinner spot Sunday evening our first night of vacay. With the rain and wind picking up we came here. To make it easy we ordered a medium pan pizza w pepperoni and split a salad, got two drinks and a kids meal. The salad was a nice shareable size although some of the veggies were brown etc so had to pick around. The Italian dressing was good. The pizza was not so good. The toppings slid right off every time we pulled a slice. The drinks weren't the best we've had here but of course were still $10 each!! Our server was so nice and prompt, and food came out fast, so those were two huge pluses! The kids meal was typical, a few chicken tenders w fries for $8 no drink included.

Good food but overpriced-like most places in Virginia Beach. Enjoyed ourselves and would consider going again.

We enjoyed eating here.The staff is friendly and attentive. We got our pizza quickly. The price is very competitive. Our server also was helpful with cst..we were ordering to small salads and she told us to get the regular salad.It was big enough for 2 and we would save money. So we did.
