I expected the usual fare for this establishment but got a lot more. The mac and cheese choices are incredible! Pretty good beer list as well. Definitely a good stop when in Ames.

The food was great, the service was also great. Large menu - pizza's good, individual pizza's a tad small but everything was tasty and well made. There is an attached sports bar that is fun.
