Large patio. Great wait staff. Excellent beer with good selection. And we loved our pizza. Big bathrooms but need motion detection to turn on and better lighting in the hallway (hard to even tell if bathroom doors are open or closed!).

Our food was good but the two pizzas we ordered were overdressed and dripping with liquids which made them tricky to eat and very difficult to enjoy as leftovers at home. The ambiance was great but the lack of service help was very noticiable as there was only one person serving, hosting and taking orders at the restaurant started to get busy, this made for longer wait times and service requests.

Ordered the Date Night (wine+salad+pizza). The wine was good. The salad was a bit soggy with dressing. The pizza (Bahmiza) was absolutely phenomenal. Aaron was our server and he was incredible. Would recommend this place to everyone!

I understand that it’s very difficult for establishments in this COVID world. Service was slow, but completely understandable. Outdoor patio with live music made for an awesome atmosphere. The volume of the music was at such a level that made conversation difficult. Would have preferred background music. Overall though, a good experience!

After paying a $30 “donation” to see a live music act we were told the event was cancelled due to the weather. So we stayed and had dinner. Upon walking back to our car my wife heard a band warming up. I inquired and was told that the band showed up after all. It would have been nice if the server that told us the event was cancelled informed us that the event was still on.
