Stopped after day at the Track, big group so staff did their best to get us in. Worth the wait as the pizza was outstanding! Great service and friendly staff.

Very disappointing! We come here several times a year and this was the last time. We order a thin crust 8 cut and it came out very doughy. We asked if this was thin (knowing it wasn't) and our server replied "oh....I forgot to push...that button". The only option offered was to cook another pizza. It is sad to see how a long standing restaurant has gone downhill. Especially during track season. We wont be back.More

OMG awesome filling food! Grilled chicken Parm sandwich with red sauce and fries, stromboli with spinach and mushroom added, and honey hot wings. Definitely worth every penny! Server was #29. She is so welcoming and accommodating.

The staff was great, but the pizza was even better! We had the mushroom white pizza and it's probably one of the best we have ever eaten. It was amazing. The restaurant is small, and it was packed. But if the one pizza we had...was any insulation we know why. We will be back!More

I’ve picked up pizza from here twice. Once off-season for lunch and once during racing season for dinner. Both experiences were similar. The pizza, crust in particular, was excellent. They’ve hit the mark with a couple of specials such as their hamburger pizza and their...clam/white sauce pizza. They’ve missed the mark on the classic buffalo chicken, sadly. The wait times in both cases were insane - even though I arrived at the recommended pickup time. Maybe I need to add 20 minutes to the time I’m quoted next order?More

My husband and I went here for pizza with one of my huband’s brothers. We liked it so we wanted to go there after the track during track season. One of our party got to the place before us. They could not give him a...table until we all arrived. We totally understood that. When we arrived, we were told that it would be about 15 minutes before we got a table. That was cool. A bit later a group of 4 to 6 people arrived for a table. A little while later a family left. I expected that we would get their table. Imagine my surprise that the family, that came after us, were sitting at the table. The table was in a corner in the bar. If that table was not part of the bar, then I wish that someone had told us that we could sit there. Later, another family arrives for a table. Apparently, the women called the facility to make a reservation. She believed she had a reservation, though the restaurant does not take reservations. They explained that to her. A bit later, a table became available. That family was given the table. I will mention that the family had a family member who had special needs. If the restaurant staff had talked to us about giving that family the table, then perhaps we would have agreed for them to get the table. But they didn’t do that. We were ignored and once again, we had no table. At least 30 mins had gone by for our 15 min wait. The bad thing, we saw people eating pizza at the bar, and it looked good. We will never go to this restaurant again. We don’t need to because they are not interested in being organized enough to work an organized way to have a realistic list for a table. I will go to a restaurant that wants my business. So, keep your system to make sure that your regular customers get the tables and make sure not to give tables to new customers.More

Ordered a chef salad and was surprised to see pepperoni and ham, only. No turkey or roast beef. It was okay but I understand that the pizza is what brings people here.

One of our favorite restaurants for good food and drink. Very reasonable for a large group and something on the menu for everyone. We frequent this place often and food is always great along with the service.

Gave this place a 5 star overall because the pizza is so good. Other than that it is a decent pub. It has a decent selection of beer and the food is very good overall. The wait staff is very friendly and prompt. I have...eaten here many times over the years and am never disappointed.More
