Delicious pizza!

Perfect after a long day of skiing. We loved the margherita pizza. Salads were good, too, especially the pear & gorgonzola.

The pizza here is absolutely delicious! You can't go wrong with any of their menu options. The people were so fun and it's the perfect place to make friends with the people around you. There are heaters outside so it doesn't get cold. I wish I could go back!! Definitely recommend this place to anyone who chooses to visit Lake... More

Excellent pizza! We ordered several different ones as well as mozzarella sticks and garlic chips for appetizers. Yummmmmmmm the only minor mess up wax one of the pizzas had mushrooms on it and we asked for no mushrooms. They quickly made us another pizza to perfection. Service was excellent. Very crowded with 30 min wait but well worth the wait.

The pizza is pretty good. The place is really crowded after the ski slopes close. We ended up ordering carry out with pizza in our room. Less hectic and the pizza was just as good

This "appetizer" was my meal and I couldn't stop. Each bite-sized morsel was magnificent. Garlic and cheese-covered crust served with pesto and ranch on the side. The "chips" didn't need the dips but I couldn't decide which way I liked the best. The pear salad was also delicious. The place was hopping and I know why. Great food, fun atmosphere... More

Excellent variety of pizzas and pasta. Full bar and live music. They are generally crowded so be patient for the wait. They have an extensive selection of craft beers. Indoor and outdoor seating.
