Stopped by on a whim, my mac and cheese was delicious, with asparagus on top. My partner's small Cesar salad was a decent size, the grilled chicken was tasty, and everyone's food around us looked wonderful too.

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Response from ITProjectManager | Reviewed this property |
Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
