This is a great little place to have brew and wood-fired pizza. The staff are so professional and friendly. It smells divine and the interior is eye candy! Bright, high-celings! Check it out!

You can usually tell a restaurant is good when the locals eat there. We went on a Wednesday evening and the place was almost packed. Lunenburg is a tourist town now, and a lot of restaurant close for the winter season. This spot was busy!...More
