It's probably been about 35 years since my last visit. They've moved but kept the most important part. The pizza was just as I remembered it. The thin crust is just the best. Mighty tasty sauce too.

The service was great and the fish was delivered warm and crispy. Melissa was a great hostess. The beer nuggets they came to the table with marinara sauce covered in Parmesan cheese was very good also.More

I had the chicken pot pie. It was real big and very good. Wife ate the roast chicken and wasn't real good. Large portions. Will probably come again. Very quiet. The server turned the lights on after we had already ordered.More
