“If you are hungry for pizza but not the restaurant chain verity, try Bella Luna. Great seating area or eat at the bar (they also have great drink options served by great bartenders). I haven't had a bad pizza there but a couple of favorites are: The Don, Bella Bianca, and the Ring of Fire.”

Brewery

“"This brewery began production in December of 2012 and was opened by the three Shifflett siblings (who previously named it Three Brother’s Brewing Company) who share a vision for making exciting and unique craft beers that celebrate and support the community they all grew up in. Their beers have already won a number of awards, and their facilities and production continues to expand as they do what they love in bringing great drinks to their fans. Their taproom is open Thursday through Monday with varying hours so be sure to check their site. They have 10 rotation draft beers on tap where you can get their staple session beers, alongside their more experimental brews. Come in for a pint, plenty of samples and even get your beer growler filled "”
