Place was very chill. Good service. Had an Italian Beef and it was excellent. The cheese fries were a little under cooked. I would come back again.

Love their pasta salad and Italian beef sandwich. Very cool smart town atmosphere. Owner knows everyone and they always make you feel at home. Decent pizza, really enjoy their pasta salad. Nice bar selection. Game nights. Easy parking.
