AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Cuisine/Specialty): The Bianca pizza—garlic, EVOO, cheese and tomatoes on a perfect crust—and a pint of local craft beer. Great night out!
Friendly service, tasty pizza and a good list of craft beers on tap set this neighborhood bar and grill apart from other pubs. Build your own pizza or opt for one of their specialties like cheeseburger, Buffalo chicken, Philly cheesesteak or a cheese-laden classic white. Pasta entrées include hearty lasagna, meatball ravioli and eggplant Parmesan. The sandwich list features their signature "clucking good" grilled chicken with roasted red peppers and smoked Gouda. In warm weather, the entire restaurant becomes open-air when they roll up the garage door to the patio. It's a great place to hang out with friends, a few pints and some shareable appetizers like wings, garlic knots, fried pickle spears and their namesake, caramelized onions with Italian cream dip and flatbread chips.
