Nice place and staff very accommodating. Pizza just okay, crust soggy. Had a cheese and sausage pizza, chicken pesto-had a lot going on and tasty but soggy crust, the Douglas social was good added goat cheese but again soggy crust. In a pinch worth it.

I'd advise a meal here, the local fave for pizza I'm told. Great classics like stuffed cabbage and solid salad options made it a winner for all in my group. Perfect patio, and Bowling!!! Very 1950's vibe. Great Service.

We made a late night stop and we're wowed by the great pizza. Some traditional combos and a few interesting options. Fresh crust, ingredients and sauce. The garlic cheese bread was to die for!

This is a really good restaurant. The pizza crust was really crisp. We each had our own individual pizzas. Every one was just wonderful.
