went to this establishment with the misses on vacation. it was either here or shorts but having been to shorts
the past 4 years I wanted to change it up. the place is not to bad. pizza is good. wouldn't come
close to rating it the best. the portion size is alil skimp. 14 bucks for a thin ^ss 12 or 14" pizza.
salad wasn't mind blowing. after reading some reviews I have to laugh. we split a Caesar which
is romaine, parm, crouts, and Caesar dressing. does that sound mind blowing or something that
is unique or different to other caesars out there? the vibe is alright. the layout was alright. the
biggest miss for me tho is this place is NOT FOR HOPHEADS!! unless you like just a bitter beer
without flavor being malt or hops. I tried all 4 ipa's they had on tap and they all tasted the same.
I've had homebrews that would take a dump on theirs. for being in traverse city I feel there's
just too many spots to make this a destination. I've been here once and probably won't return.
and yes I regret choosing this place over shorts.

p/s/ I don't want to come off as a d$ck. the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I asked
a woman who seemed to be in charge if she could tell the brewer when he makes ipa's if he could put
more hops in the @ss end for some flavor and aroma. she told me he was her brother in law or something and
that he brews in a English style and their style is unique from what others are doing.
