Have been here a few times now! It is a great place to go off the beaten path. The pizza is good, has a small town feel to it, and the staff is friendly!!

Our waitress came to the table to ask how the pizza was. I said it was good but cold. She became very rude and walked away. Then she ignored us...not even refilling our drinks.
