For this level of dining, everything was excellent, better than that, food, prices, friendly service. The ambiance of a 150 year old building, especially the "cellar'", was just perfect. Can't wait to go back and we eat out 80% of the time and worldwide.

We have been several times for a variety of occasions. Always pleased. Such options as pizza(made to order in front of you) @ the Brick oven, burgers and lots of other choices for alternative diets. Service is usually good.

This is kind of a combo place - both pizzas and regular restaurant fare. I had a calzone that was very tasty. Others in the party had sandwiches. All were happy.

Visiting Warrenton on a Sunday night and thought this looked good. Our very good waiter tried to steer us to the Pizza but we got entrees instead. BIG mistake. The ribeye was tough and chewy and bar-b-que chicken not tasty.
