Kind of a funkey, 70's, hippie throwback atmosphere. Bottom line, great pizza, very good beer selection on tap including local breweries. My favorite is shotgun wedding or the fantastic Bourbon Beer. With pizza yum!

Had excellent service! Server was very attentive and nice! We ordered the house special pizza. It had generous toppings. Crust was nice and buttery. I would definitely return and try other options. Atmosphere was nice also.

AWESOME vegan pizza option and a build your own salad option with a vegan dressing. I was worried we wouldn't find any options but pleasantly surprised with the Mellow Mushroom and would highly recommend!!

We ordered a supreme pizza and it was very good! The only suggestion would be to not put the pizza on the holding rack on the table. I assume this is to keep from burning the table, but this makes the pizza cool down quicker...More
