We were so glad when we discovered this place over a year ago! We came on the recommendation of others, and we're so glad that we did. The food is surprisingly good! I love the Inferno Burger, and their specially pizzas are fantastic. The service has always been exceptional as well. The atmosphere in the pub area is great, and... More

We went as a pair of couples. The food was adequate and priced fairly... it was not bad, nor did it blow us away. The server was fine, but could have stopped by more, I had an empty glass a couple times. We would return again, but it isn't on our list to visit right away.

Went for a late afternoon lunch. Everyone's food was great and each person took home enough for a another meal. Pizza, salads, and a kids CEO all great! Beer selection is nice too.

Very nice bartender, with good hiking tips! Monday night, burger and a side for $6!! You can't beat that!! The Lipes and the burger with the olive relish were great! That pimento cheese spread is awesome🙀love it!! About 16 beers in tap, about 1/3 being local craft selections. Cute location! Check it out!!

Service friendly and good, patio closed in for winter and dog friendly. Also well heated. The food was mediocre at best.

So let me start with the good – I like the setting, with an inside-outside sort of laid back feel and a good bar area with two or three screens showing sports. I think this small restaurant is also in a progressive part of Roanoke, with a handful of equally-minded cool original restaurants near by. We had pizza, and it... More

We ate here while visiting Roanoke for one night two weeks ago. We selected it because of the reviews and the fact that it was dog friendly with outside dining. The staff was very accommodating to us and our dog with many of them stopping by to see her. At the recommendation of our server, we ordered pizza which was... More

Moyher-daughter-granddaughter dinner on the patio was delicious. Fried, breaded green beans were an unexpected and tasty trade-off available instead of fries. Burgers, salads, hard to choose what to order, and the service was fine.
