The reviews on this place are clearly mixed, but we had a discount coupon and gave it a try. The place has "atmosphere", to be sure, but the food was disappointing. Arrived on a Friday evening to find they were out of caesar salad, out of root beer (!), and a 40 minute wait for pizza. Ordering is confusing - stand in line to order, then take a playing card and head for the bar, where you order drinks and pay for the lot. Then compete for a table to open up. Tables are cramped with little leg room. Seats are quaint, but uncomfortable.

Ordered a salad and veggie pizza. Salad arrived reasonably promptly, but very uninspired. Pizza arrived much later, not horrible but not that good (definitely better than Dominos, worse than many). Service OK but busy and stressed.
Parking is a big problem, as noted elsewhere. The facility may be historic, but it is also run down. I don't think they have invested in it in decades.
Overall, an unremarkable experience. They have better pizza in the freezer case at Safeway. If you go, go for the "atmosphere", but not for the food!
