We had the Going to the Sun flatbread (super good), a cheese pizza, and salad. Easy to get in/out. Would come back again in a heartbeat. Very nice servers. Everything was very clean and well maintained.

I really liked the menu of pizzas. There were six in our group, with one vegetarian. We all left well satisfied. There is also a decent selection of craft beers and hard cider.

Loved the pineapple jalapeno chicken bacon BBQ pizza. So delicious! Quick and friendly service. Didn't love the plain pizza but the pastas were good too.
