Pitch is always good food, service and ambience. I like the variety of food and the drinks are good as well. The Pitch Punch is definitely one of my favorites. We've had different servers here and Karly is top notch for sure.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. Had a reservation for 7:15, finally got sat at 7:35. Service was a little slow, but extremely friendly. The food was on point. We will definitely go back in hopes that it was just a bad night for the front of house team. The food is what is bringing us back this time. All the flavors were what I was looking for.

The hostess was lovely and Alex our waiter was very helpful and funny as well. A wonderful experience. I’ve been there many times but two people in our party had never been there and were very impressed. One friend is also a chef and he and the others found the Plum Creek chicken dinner to be superb. Thank you!
