    Good beer menu. Tapenade pizza is fantastic. Good veggie burger. Great for hanging out talking with friends.

    The cheesy garlic bread was okay. Their happy hour lineup looks awesome though.

    Don't come on a Wed night if you value your hearing or music. Wed night is karaoke night and it's usually stupid loud.

    Ask for Sarah as a waitress, absolutely phenomenal and she's pretty funny! Depending on what day you go/what cook is working the food can be pretty good!

    Tower Inn now has fine GF pizza crust and hamburger buns, with a separate food preparation area. They are working on a gluten free crepe bar for Sunday mornings. Awesome!

    Some vegan options, great happy hour and the owner bought a friend and I each a shot of Ouzo to celebrate our birthdays. He tries to make the place very friendly and pro-student and does a great job.
