Ate dinner at a table, on a wednesdat night, 1/23/13.

Atmo - nice mix of white and blue collar. The bar has a nice energy without being obnoxious. I saw as many workboots as I did dress shoes.

Quality - this is some of the best pizza I have ever had. Seriously. I had buffalo chicken and my wife had a spinach and feta. Both were outstanding. Our calamari app was also very good. We didn't have room for dessert.

Service - Our server was Sarah. Honestly I would not have changed anything. Food came out at a great times, she was attentive without being oppressive, my wife ordered a fancy cocktail(s) and it was excellent and came out of the bar quickly. Sarah had a very welcoming and pleasant manner.

Selection - 20 craft beer taps. All good stuff. Giving this a lower score because the menu was different from the website and both were different from what was actually on tap. If you spot your favorite on the website and that is your reason for going, call ahead as it might not be there.

Food - see quality.

Value - I had 2 Hercules Double Ipa, a buff chicken pizza, and my wife had 2 fancy cocktails and a spinach pizza. We split calamari. Total came to 55 bones. I thought this was quite reasonable.

Overall - my wife and I will definitely be back. Great little spot in downtown Hudson Ma. Less selection than the Horseshoe (80 taps) in Hudson, but the food blows it away.

Cool spot in downtown Hudson, very comfortable. Pizza making in view at entrance & to most of dining tables.

Beer selection is MA-focused. Which is ok in theory but the obscure ones here are mediocre. Prices are ok, borderline high for this far-suburban burgh.

Staff are OK but a bit stiff & plastic, it's just pizza here guys, chill.

Where this place falls apart is the food. Big price tag for a very mediocre & sparsely populated sheet. Weak flavorless sauce & marginal crust, sausage topping was meh & lacking too.

Won't be back - if in the area again and seeking beer, I'll just head to the Horseshoe.

Nice place, 20 taps with lots of great beers, many locals too, served in the right glass mostly. A few bottles as well. Friendly and helpful staff. The bartender was very friendly and helpful and knew her stuff. Some casual diners, families, and beer geeks all mingling somehow peacefully.

Pizza is served in a big wood fired oven and is delicious, the other good looks great and artisan like, but everything is on the expensive side.

The bar is nice, bright dark colored wood bar, speckled decor with a hint of a farmhouse feel, big wooden pillars, open kitchen, nice vibrant atmosphere. It can get pretty busy and there aren't a lot of seats so be prepared to wait.

I'll def come back when I can, do a little pub crawl in Hudson, between here, horseshoe pub, and Medusa, but probably only end up here in the end.

great place to get farm fresh local fair and solid beer. Wish their beer was a little better considering the prices, beer is a step below outstanding ratings. A great place though!

Always packed but worth the wait. One of our fav date night spots. Hangout and score a seat at the bar. Enjoy best brews and top notch cocktails. Love it when they have Wormtown on tap. The wings are to die for and yet to have a bad meal from this kitchen.

Love this place. Bartenders are awesome and know a lot about what they are pouring. The 25 or so taps change regularly so there is always something new to try.

The flatbreads are great, not to be missed.
