Great food and the best onion rings anywhere! Drinks get a negative rating however. I ordered a bloody Mary and it was very plain and boring. Not even a single olive or stick of celery as garnish!?!!?. Just a straw. Isn't that why you order...More

Great place to meet up with fellow employees. Varied menu beyond pizza. Is loud so be prepared for that. Had about 20 people total and they allowed for separate checks. I had a dirty martini on the rocks and it was huge. Twice the size...More

Thank you for sharing Jan! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal at the OP. As im sure you can understand, sometimes our servers get very busy with larger parties or busier nights so the wait time may be a little longer...More
