Surprised by negative reviews. We've been there twice now and have been really happy with our food and the service. Vegetarian options at a sports bar menu Fantastic! Yes, busy but attentive to us! Try it out for yourself sometime.

Great, upscale bar food. Delicious pizza made with local crust in a stone fire oven. Patio is wonderful in the summer. Great nightly specials on drinks. Happy hour specials.

I called in an order to go, so I cannot speak on the service. The people I interacted with were friendly and they offered a discount which is appreciated. The pizza and wings we had were awesome. Some of the better hot wings I have...More
