Pizza was quite good, as was salad. Disappointed that they were out of certain things on the menu early on in the evening, but found suitable replacements. A better variety of beers on tap would have been great. Next time I stop by I will check out the wine list. We live a few hrs away but have been traveling through Grafton recently, this was a great find for comfort meal with plenty of leftover pizza for later. 2 large pizzas for 3 people was perfect! More
