We had an absolutely wonderful time at Petty Cash. We were there on a Saturday for dinner to celebrate my niece’s 19th birthday. The live music was amazing, happy hour half-price pizzas and $7 drinks were great and the service spectacular. Our server Emma was incredible. She went above and beyond to make our experience fantastic and make my niece feel special. Will be back over and over again!
