Rated 1 out of 5 by from The staff was disengaged and tentative throughout out meal. They did not bother to apply the discount to our bill but we were so anxious to leave that we didn't want to spend the time.and energy to point out their ridiculous oversight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FYI, it is located across from the downtown post office. We almost missed it. It was well appointed but nearly deserted on a Tuesday night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We were there on a Friday night at 7:30 in a tourist town. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. We were the only diners there. No one came in while we were there or soon after. My pizza was adequate. My husband liked his entree. The place had a desperate feeling about it. On the way to it we walked by several places with crowds and lines waiting for tables. That about sums it up.
