Great beers, delicious pizza, what more do you need? Overall a good meal. One bartender did roll his eyes when I asked for a water for a friend who doesn't drink, and filled a tiny glass halfway full, but otherwise it was enjoyable and tasty.

As far as I know, it's possible to call them to reserve a table. I remember going with Trend Micro, and we had our 2 tables reserved, but it wasn't a Saturday, so I'm not sure.
