This is a pizzeria with other menu options. The lasagna is delicious! They have a pizza buffet on Monday evenings with pizza, breadsticks, soup and salad bar.

We order on the phone in the car on the way from Gaylord back to our hotel in Grayling. The menu online was not the same as the lady answering the phone understood so we had to change up things on the fly. We ended up with a plain cheese pizza. In store, they were very nice....offering plates, napkins, parmasean... More

The pizza here was very good and affordable. Loved all of the Fred Bear memorabilia here. Truly a Northern Michigan gem.

If you go for the buffet, it is like someone's gramma is back in the kitchen making the salads! The potato and pasta salad are excellent! There are also boiled eggs, which isn't a too common salad bar item. Usually they ask what kind of pizza we like when we order the buffet so we still get what we want.... More

We stopped there on our way down from Sault Ste Marie. The pizza was average. Nothing special about the crust or sauce. Had we known, we would have checked out the brewing company a few hundred feet down the sidewalk. It was also very strange to walk into the restaurant and see an old Ford Mustang II sitting there, in... More

This place has a nasty, yellow Ford Mustang in the seating area when you first walk in. We were told it had belonged to Fred Bear. It takes up space and so they have limited seating. The staff was busy and tried to keep up with angry customers because apparently the kitchen was slow. Our pizza was decent. Average deep... More

This is a nice stop when going through Grayling. The menu offers a lot of great options and lots of craft beers. It is a popular place to eat.
