This place is a bit small, so we had to wait for a table, it was worth it. The beer and the pizza were very good. In fact the, The Godfather, was outstanding! Would definitely recommend this place if you love beer and pizza!

Pizza was excellent! We got the BBQ chicken, the Godfather, and Pear and Fig, all were super tasty! And beers were solid and the whole place had a good atmosphere to meet up and talk with friends!

It is just about what you'd expect. Decent beer selection, staff was just fine, beer was cold and tasty. What makes this place stand out is the cool rooftop seating. It was a great fall day and we had a nice time sipping our beers...More

Just ok not a lot of beer variety. Something about the draft system each beer had something going on it all had the safe sort of taste, very odd. Parking is well none! If your near the college area stop in but don't make a...More
