They will serve your food in the Theater. There's plenty of tables to set your food and drinks. The veggy pizza was excellent with lots of garlic. It was a little chilly but the balcony is warmer. We will definitely be back again.

I had a yummy salad, but the Italian items on the menu made me want to come back at dinner time when I could linger a little longer. The restaurant is more of a cozy size, but appealing decor.

The atmosphere was relaxed, couches were lining the entire upstairs. The gluten free options for dinner were numerous. I had an all meat and vegetables pizza. The movie was also pretty good. Loved trying the new not your fathers root beer. Iowa's really good.
