“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

We were headed for breakfast after church - lines were crazy - the man dressed as a wine barrel convinced us to go in to eat. We first sat on the patio - where our 9 month old son was being very vocal - we asked to move inside close to football games hoping not to disturb other diners. The Owners/management were very nice - told us not to worry about it - very family oriented placed - very much appreicate that - especially when nowadays a lot of places make you feel bad for bringing your child with you. While we were there - two different families - had drinks go flying off the table due to children - and the staff was very friendly, and helpful in cleaning it up. Not just lip service - they walked the walk - bring your family here. The service was fast and friendly and the food was good. We ordered a pizza - been in search of good pizza in the Wilmington area - and this was definitely headed in the right direction. Great salads. Good value. Will be back - especially due to the family friendly atmosphere.

“Not exactly what we expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

The front of the restaurant has sidewalk seating, the back has "riverview" seating, but you really can't see the river well. Service was very good, as was the pizza although not one of the best we've had. The side salads were a decent size, but nothing special. If I were to go back to Wilmington, this would not be on my return list.

“Delicious pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

There were four of us, two couples. I had the lunch special: two slices and a wonderful salad. The pizza is pretty darn close to what I grew up with (NJ). My friend had the luncheon lasagna (very, very small portion..I gave her some pizza). The guys had meatball sliders and loved them.

It was a Wednesday and there was a wine special.

Would certainly return again.

“Great food and good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Joined a group here for an early dinner on a Saturday and had a great experience. Decor is really cool inside, lots of food choices (I had the Bruschetta), and excellent service. Server even splits us up into teams (each family was a separate check) and got us checked out quickly as we were trying to catch a ghost tour. Missed the tour (too busy chatting and drinking) but enjoyed being there so much we were in no hurry to leave. And they were really great with our kids - all 12 of them in the group. They let them have their own table and while the kids are all well behaved, the server treated the kids just like us adults. I appreciated that. Had a great time and will go back again sometime!
