The chef's pizza speciality was amazing. Would definitely go back. Waitering staff were superb. Sat outside in the back section. Superb atmosphere.

We stopped in for beer and pizza and were not disappointed. They had a wide array of local beers and ciders to choose from. Pizzas were good, there is something for everyone. Service was good, sit outside on the patio if possible.

We love this restaurant. The pizza is amazing. The oil and honey they give you to put on the pizza is genius. The chicken wings are some of the best I've ever had.
