This is by far my favorite restaurant. Their wings and pizza are the beat! They also make a mean Moscow mule! Highly recommend.

We love this place. The service is fast, the beer is cold and the food is always perfectly prepared and unique. Hermanaki and the BBQ Chicken pizza are always our go-to.

Great place for social dining, with an amazing beer selection. We had wings both boneless and bone in, grilled and both were delicious. Pizza was good both deep dish and thin crust. Definitely would recommend this place for a casual night out. Service was great.😊😊

Wings, beer, pizza, and service are all absolutely perfect! Live band during dinner hours makes it hard to socialize. Maybe save the music for when people don't have to yell in order for a waitress to ask and answer questions about food and drinks etc.
