“Pizza”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We ate from this restaurant twice, once inside, and once takeout. Unfortunately, both times the pizza crust was burnt. I have to think that is not unusual. We sampled Margherita Pizza, Hawaiian Pizza, Pulled Pork and Shrimp Scampi Pizza: all good, but the burnt crust really took away from the overall flavor each time. We also had an order of eggplant Parmesean that was fairly flavorful. We included Caprese, Garden and Pear salads that were all outstanding! I have to say this restaurant was very inconsistent which is why I give it an average review. The price is high and the atmosphere is nice. The rest room is too small and rather messy. I hope that the kinks get ironed out. I would give it another try.

“Loud and Family friendly”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Go here for the good pizza and great subs. Service can be slow, but if you have a large family of all ages visiting, this is a great place to eat. This restaurant is very loud, but the atmoshere is fun and well maintained. Small bar area is separate and can be a refuge from the restaurant.

“Good luck getting seated”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We were told it would be a 45 min wait and we decided to wait. 55 mins later I checked and they said you 3rd in line, 20 mins later after 4 parties had been seated, I was told 25 more minutes... really? We ten left totally frustrated.

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Many reviews here talk about a long wait time. Hello people!! It's the Cape in the middle of the summer!! Of COURSE it's busy!! And isn't a sign of a good restaurant a BUSY restaurant??!! Waitstaff always delivers exceptional service and the manager knows many regular customers by name. Loud environment, but that makes it fun and casual (and kid friendly!). Their pizza is INCREDIBLE (try the blueberry!) and 20 beers on draft.... can't go wrong! Definitely a MUST if you're down the Cape and looking for something that is YUMMY!!!

The outdoor seating and firepit is great, and inside is awesome also watching the pizzas get made! The pizza is cooked in an coal-fired oven which blackens the edges of pizza, but IT'S DELICIOUS!!

“Coagulated Food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The wings were old and just barely OK. The pizza which is so easy to make well, was old, lousy and awful. Nachos were unedible, and nobody cared!!!

Stay away...we had to go have ice cream next door to fill up
