Stopped in with our family for a late lunch and a chance to watch the game. Loved the atmosphere, lots of character in this building. Food was great and the service was very good. Definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

Good pizza & great wings! Service was ok, they weren't extremely busy, so could have used a little more attention as we had to wait on drink refills. Dirty tables feom previous customwrs, but venu seemed clean.

Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Our pizza was amazing! I would strongly recommend the pizza here. It is their most boasted about menu item. The crust is thin but not soggy. Toppings are abundant and fresh. Always served hot!

Food is good, service is terrible. We were there for 3 hrs and there was only 4 of us. Once food was there, it was good! Just don't going you are in a time crunch.
