Either dinning in or take-out the food has always been good. We normally do delivery. Nice to have a restaurant like this in Portage as there isn't anything else like it. Good is great, home cooked and always huge portions.

No. The only patio in portage is Boston Pizza and they do not allow dogs. We have the beautiful island park where you can order take out and have a picnic in park.
