We are new in town and decided to visit last night for my birthday. We had heard it was the best pizza in town. The pizza was average at best. It lacked depth of flavor, and really needed salt. As the pizza cooled, it began...More

This is one of my families favorite pizza places. You can order take out, but we prefer to dine in and enjoy the spectacular views of Muskegon Lake. Staff is always friendly and the pizza is one of the best thin crust around.

$18+ a pie? You are freaking crazy. Bat-guano crazy. They are worth about half that. The last time I went there, they were under 9 bucks BUT they had run out of sausage and replaced it with store bought (probably Jimmy Deans Sage) but refused...More

I understand this is a Muskegon landmark for many people, but I really don’t understand what the fuss is about. The pizza menu is very limited, one size, one style, and only a few toppings to choose from. They have paper plates and and forks...More

Ordered “everything without anchovies” for takeout. Ready as promised in twenty minutes. Picked up at the bat, which wasn’t clear. Pizza, for thin crust, was very good. Crust held everything together without falling apart. Very cheesy mix right up to the edge of the crust....More

We’ve had a boat in Muskegon for many many years. We have never been to Fricanos and we were hungry for pizza. I googled pizza and came up with 3 places near us, one being Fricanos. We decided to try it. We asked the waitress...More

Nice location on the lake but the food is only average. Pizzas are small, thin and taste so so. Many better pizza choices in the Muskegon area.

Some of the worst pizza I have ever had. Greasy and tasteless. It is filling, though. The trick is ... drink enough alcohol and you can’t tell the difference. Have all the people that gave good reviews never had GOOD pizza ?? Even the Ice...More
