The small space features a front garage-style window, a cozy butcher block bar towards the back and a window looking into the kitchen. As far as a menu goes, expect something more along the lines of the Brick Oven Bistro running through it’s veins plus something in the vicinity of 12 beers on tap, local favorites included.

According to their Facebook page, The Mess Hall will serve lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, and breakfast on weekends. The pizza menu features pies like Teenie Bopper with little meatballs ($11) and Firehouse with smoked fresh mozzarella, Sloan Market cheese and parsley sausage ($11). The lunch menu offers soups, sandwiches, salads, burgers and “plates such as Pickle Brined Fried Half Chicken, Homemade Oxtail Pierogi, Short Rib Hash, Veggie Spaghetti, Homemade Spaghetti & Meatballs, Baked Stuff Shells and Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi!”  They also mention on Facebook that their dinner menu is still a work in progress.
