13 of us arrived around 6p on a Friday night. We called ahead, recommend doing this. It's a bar so some ID is needed by adults. We had 5 kids with us and we entered a loud atmosphere. We were seated immediately. Our picnic tables were located at the back of the restaurant in what, during warmer weather, is maybe a patio. Two heaters and lots of tarp walls provided some warmth. Bring coats and whatever layers will provide comfort in season of your visit. I eat dessert first. I ate the ice cream twist while others ordered drinks. It's an adult ice cream made from liquor super yummy. I got it in a small glass with cone on top. I will add this is a cash only place with an ATM that if you use, show your receipt for a shot of Jameson..service fee is a couple of bucks and the shot helps you swallow the cost..smile. Kids enjoyed the Mac and cheese pizza they ordered. Adults not so much. I got Cohely. I had one piece and it was gone, everyone enjoyed it. These are NYC thin crust slices. The group enjoyed the Thai pizza, it has a slight sweetness they enjoyed. Cuban was excellent too...meat lovers may enjoy this, we did. The chicken pesto pizza was better to me the next day when I reheated at home. It was the only pizza left over we were full. We ordered 6 or 7 different ones. The vegetarians and non pork eaters enjoyed their choices and so did the rest in our group. The Greek salad was also enjoyed. Our bill totalled more than $300. A good time was had by all. Summary: reservation recommended, cash only, bring ID, wear layers for the season and bring earplugs if sensitive to noise.. they project movies on back wall..so be mindful of maturity of group. I hadn't done any research before coming. Staff awesome, friendly, helpful no matter what group they were serving. Enjoyed experience and would go again.

We went for pizza and beer, it was sucks because we took our cousins from another country and they didn't let us drink in the table because one of them was a minor, and they didn't seat in another table it was an uncomfortable experience and we decided to leave.

We ducked in here to warm up after walking in the cold for a quite a while. So glad we did! Awesome variety of drafts to chose from and a unique menu. We had already ate dinner, but opted to try out their boozy donuts which was served with Jameson infused vanilla soft serve ice cream. Delicious!! Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyable place to hang out. Good service.

Vegan pro-tip: They have vegan slices on Tuesday nights (you can get a full pizza done vegan every day, too)

Fun pizza joint + bar. They have an L theme which is fun. Jameson on tap. Drinks are surprisingly good for a pizza place. The P,B&J special is a slice of pizza, a PBR tall boy and a shot of Jameson for $8, so that's pretty value. They have year round outdoor seating with heaters in the winter.

It's cash only, but if you use their ATM and give your receipt to the bartender you get a free shot of Jameson.
