Just ordered a quick bread stick snack while at the Keweenaw Brewing Co next door. The service when I walked over to order was notable! While I was getting waited two other employees walked out to those in line behind me to get their order so they didn't have to wait. It sounds simple - but it truly jumped out... More

The pizza was amazing, quiet restaurant, great for visiting with our college kid! Fast service, free pop refills and a little gift shop to check out while you wait for your order!

Totally yummy pizza with a variety of crusts! I recommend the chicken pesto pizza. Besides that, take a look at UP art products in the room next to the dining area.

Pizza Works was our late lunch stop in Houghton and was the right place. Cheesy pizza with plenty of "goo" to spare and the flavored crust was a nice surprise. We will be back next time through town :-)

Wide variety of specialty pizzas available. Their Mediterranean is my favorite, basically a gyro pizza. Can you say, YUM!

The owner often takes your order or checks on your food. The servers are energetic and the chef may ask you EXACTLY how you want your pizza as she tosses it sky high. The floor manager then breezed past smiling and just checking in. After our long weekend and third visit the owner and manager both remembered our name and... More

Pizza Works had good ratings and reviews. I read it had great crust. We were looking forward to our meal, but the pizza was lack luster. The crust was dry and one of the worst I've ever had. The flavors were bland. The mushrooms were fresh, which was probably the best part of the whole meal. We got the cheese... More

They have the best pizza crust. Need I say more? No, but I shall. We usually get the same pizza -- the Maui Wowie and a 2- to 3-topping -- and sometimes some breadsticks. It always tastes great, and it's done very fast. Every once in a while we dine in, usually when I have my grandsons and the girls... More

We like Pizza Works-they take local (Midwest) checks or cash or credit...a Godsend when one is traveling. Their pizza menu can be substituted and changed to fit your likes. They have family friendly seating. We loved the Yooper-inspired atmosphere and their prices are very inexpensive. We live near Chicago and Chicago pizza is our specialty. Pizza Works is a close...
