Really cool restaurant/venue! Awesome industrial feel and appearance. Really good food, pizza is terrific! Saw a concert and it was a great place for an up close and personal experience!

I love the volleyball league on Friday night. The service has always been rough at what was the Foundry and now Piazza. It hasn't improved. Hopefully as life returns to normal it will improve, but I'm not optimistic. I will say though, that the new owners being a pizza chain, do a good pizza. Update: Service still stinks. I know everyone is understaffed. But when I can't even pay my bill, it's too rough

I was happy to see a long time favorite band, Filter. Weather ended up being perfect to boot. Hope to see more bands in the future here.

Saw Lita Ford here outside. Good sightlines and not overly crowded. Good selection of beer. Kind of weird location with semi trailers and such parked near the outdoor concert stage, but still a good time.

Outstanding venue there last night. Lita Ford ROCKED The house down. Hair Bangers Ball also Rocked. Restaurant food was outstanding. However except for the Security guard at the front. The rest of your younger Security staff need some racial profiling training.. I stood next to the first one guarding the VIP entry who threatened to throw a customer out 3 times for getting to close to the band members area to talk to his friend who was working as a rowdy this night. The customer is Def and has to get close to his friend to here what he was saying. And your bearded Security man just kept on threatening him. BTW I was standing there with the customers dinner from the restaurant. I should say I have 2 decades of Security work, starting with diamond Security here in the 90s.

We've been attending at least a concert a month here. Always great service and never any issues. Seating is not crowded at all. And spaced so everyone gets around easily. Food selection changes based on the event.

Really fun place to watch a concert! Sixteen Candles was a blast! All the tables were reserved but we ordered a pizza at the bar and sat on the wall near a table. Super cheesy pizza!

This venue was super cool, never been to a concert anything like this. We had a table and our own server during the concert which was nice. She did great but you could tell she was being over worked. Minus one star because the bathroom needs work, spend the money and buy some dividers for the mens bathroom.

Great venue to see a live band!!! Big stage, big dance floor, big screens for visual effects. Staff was extremely friendly and efficient! Great pub-style food. We had a blast!
