We expected this to be more elaborate than it was however, our Uber driver corrected us while en route. He was kind enough to explain it was basically a bar that was attached to the pizzeria next door. That said, turns out he is a regular here and said we had made a good choice. He recommended pizza or calzones and dropped us off.
The two of us sat at the bar and quickly noted it was just a bar; dark, close quarters, several TVs, etc. Took the bartender a bit to acknowledge us and it was far from busy; 1815 on a Saturday. Later on a gentleman sat next to us and the bartender did the same thing till we got his attention. Once he noticed us though, he was super attentive and helpful. This is where the great happens!
The taps are all local micros. While they don't have flights they are knowledgeable on the taste and descriptions. The young lady behind the bar worked well with the guy and so both would make recommendations. When it came to food, the Uber driver NAILED IT! Hands down best pizza I've had in a long time (with exception to Jersey boardwalk pizza. That's just a different food group all together!). It was clear they make their own dough. It is crunchy/flaky on the outside and soft, but not gooey, on the inside. I got the Calzone and it was literally melt in your mouth good. My friend got the chicken gyro which was huge and couldn't even be folded like a normal gyro it was so full! The guy that sat down later ordered an appetizer of garlic knots and a small pizza. He received 6 knots that literally filled a standard dinner plate. If you get those, plan to share!
For us, the food drove this place over the top. Oh, we ordered an appetizer, calzone, gyro, 3 local taps, and 3 domestic bottles. Our bill was $50. Damn good price for the amount of food and quality.

A regular there...there was a new bartender...that I feel was lost and also after reviewing my bill the next day...added a couple drinks that we did not have. Service is usually VERY good and Amanda is the best! I gave service less than favorable due to the new bartender who did not know the overall way of providing great service we are used to there...maybe do a bit more OJT before letting the new bartender on her own...stating over and over it is your first night for the mistakes...is not a way to gain the customers confidence.

This place was advertised as an ice bar... it is NOT. It is simply a sports bar with lots of TV's. The food was good. The atmosphere on the other hand was not what we were looking for. Poor use of words and description.

We went to take advantage of the 1000points. Never again. It is a sports bar and nothing else. TV's everywhere. The menu is strictly American Italian and the pizza is similar to what you can buy frozen, complete with gluey cheese and stingy toppings. The dining section is very small and is right next to the very crowded bar where all the guys in shorts and tee shirts were drinking beer. The whole "ice cave" thing is a joke. Not a place for cocktails. The pictures posted on their site are very misleading. There is nothing "classy" about this bar/restaurant!! Why it is a member of OpenTable is beyond me.

A great neighborhood hangout with great beers, cocktails, food and service at reasonable prices. They need to be on Open Table more than one night a week.

Everything was good. From the name, I was expecting the ambiance to be a bit more sophisticated. It's really more of a bar than restaurant and sits adjacent to a pizza place.
