-There's stone oven baked pizzas here. Build your own topping, I prefer artichokes. Yum. It's fun to eat at this former train Depot, and observe the menu has plenty of train station and Depot references.

If you enjoy wood fired brick oven pizza made with great ingredients, then look no further. They also make the best IPA's in NW Michigan. Absolutely a solid bet every time.
