Suzy's Pizza, Bar & Grill
Your place for live music. Casual atmosphere, separate bar area, pool tables, outdoor volleyball courts. "The pizza is divine - sweet tomato sauce, flaky thin crispy crust, lots of gooey cheese with some spices sprinkled on top. Extra cheese is not really necessary because they are plenty generous. It's simply delicious."
