Ate here twice, once as a couple and once as a group of 8. Both times the pizzas were well made. This place is not fancy. There is open seating and the ordering wait is very short.

Great hot, fresh pizza. Try the all meat. It was topped with generous amounts of meat. Try the cookies .

Thank you for coming in! Sorry the portion size was too large, I've heard that complaint before, can't seem to do anything about it...I hope you come back and realize that your next review will be 5 stars. ;)

It was cold and damp this evening so pizza sounded like a good idea. We got a medium pizza and it was more than enough for two people. Lots of fresh toppings with a beer to drink. Nice and easy dinner after a busy day...More

This is a self-serve place; you order at the counter and you are served on paper plates. If we are going out to dinner and spending in excess of $30 we'd prefer to be waited on and eat off dinner plates. Pizza was not what...More

Hand Crafted Pizza: Crust dough made in house, as is the sauce. We grind real Wisconsin Cheese, so you don't have to eat any Cellulose coated factory cheese, or man made cheese substitute. We chop fresh vegetables and mushrooms.
