Protagonist - Southend
Perfect way to unwind after a long day. Really cool environment with tasty beer and pizza. The wait was what wpuld be expected and the staff kept us in communication with us the whole time. It was packed when we went so totally understandable. Turns out my grandma was right, "good things are with the wait." If I'm being honest tasty cold beer makes waiting a whole lot easier too. The slices we ordered where giant, and the ingredients tasted better than you usual beer and pizza joint. I will hit Protagonist again the next time I'm in town.
First off, All pizza choices are amazing - It's best to order the Lando (20" or 28" b/c of topping distribution mathematics). Also, there is freshly made beer if you're into that. And I generally had a calm feeling and a great meet-up with friends there on a few occasions; even had our dogs in the veranda. Anyways, five stars.
From a diverse and delectable selection of beers and cocktails to great pizza, Protagonist has it all! There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for those looking to unwind after a long day or meet up with some friends. Truly a must try if you are in the need of some good, local beer.
Have you ever had a pizza that was so good, you would slap your own mother? Honestly, I had that here (sorry mom). Not only was it delicious, but it was the size of my head. The drinks? Equally delicious, but in liquid form. The place is clean and just like Ruth Chris. Highly recommend if you are in the area.
The beers were delightful, and the outdoor patio was comfortable and spacious. Jen at the bar was super helpful guiding us in what to try. We went on a Saturday afternoon and got great service! I highly recommend!
