We are open from late May thru late Sept. Our menu consists of pizzas (only one size - 16 inch - feeds 3-5 people), calzones, pasta, sandwiches, salads and desserts. We also have a 10" Gluten Free pizza and we have GF bread and buns for our sandwiches. For drinks, we have fountain drinks, iced tea (sweet and unsweet), beer (gluten free also), wine, fruit tea smoothies, specialty coffees and shakes. We also offer a dine-in special from 4-6 pm every day which consist of a cheese pizza and a pitcher of either beer or soda for $14.83. We have indoor seating as well as tables on the front deck and outside open dining with a great view of the mountains. As you enter, you will get a menu and be instructed to sit wherever you like and when you are ready to order, proceed to the register where you will place your order and pay at that time. You will be given an order number which will be called out once the order is ready. We prepare the food in the order that orders are taken and they are prepared fresh at that time. We do not jump tickets in order to do the easier ones or ones that take less time to prepare. We also do not have pre-prepared items. Occasionally, we will have some extra pizza slices prepared which can be bought immediately without having to wait. When we are in the busiest time of the summer season (late-June to mid-August), it is not uncommon for our customers to wait between 30 minutes to an hour for the food - just trying to be honest. The majority of our customers tell us that it is well worth the wait. We do not deliver but we take phone orders for carryout. During the same time frame mentioned above, we offer an "All You Can Eat" breakfast for $6.99 From 7:30 to 10:00. We shut breakfast down promptly at 10:00 so we can prepare for lunch which begins at 11:00. Please call to verify our closing times which vary depending on the time of the season. We also close on Sunday so we can go to church and have our day of rest. Please come by and give us a try. We would be glad to serve you.

Known for their pizza!

This is our go to eatery when visiting Lake City. We enjoyed the meal at lunch, but did have a 45 minute wait (which we were warned of, so it's on us, just FYI). They are known for their pizza, which is delicious as are their cinnamon rolls which are huge!

Both the pizza and pasta were good. Order at the counter so it's good for large groups. Plenty of outdoor seating available too.

Very good food both inside/out door eating. Great place to get a quick bite to eat or drink or seat and enjoy ambience of place. They are closed in winter and on Sundays. We had a couple meals and the family enjoyed all that was ordered.

We've been coming to Lake City for many years for the summer , and Poker Alice is a " One of a Kind " restaurant that we enjoy going to over and over again. We usually get one of the Veggie Pizzas or a Calzone. The large pizza is huge and can easily feed a family or in our case... More

This place has world class pizza. It is located just south of the Henson Creek bridge--just a short walk from just about anywhere in Lake City.

For someone who frequents Lake City often, we know what to expect. Pizza was better than a few years ago. Patience is a necessity, not just here, but Lake City in general.

A beautiful hole in the wall restaurant. Great food and the story behind Poker Alice is quite interesting. The food is fresh and it's fun sitting off one of the main roads through town and watching the traffic that comes through.

We loved this place when we visited Lake City in 2012 and 2013. Now Poker Alice should be renamed Pokey Alice because it is SO slow! It took us over an hour to get our sandwiches! My oldest ordered the Tilapia wrap----don't get this!! He ended up having some serious stomach issues for the rest of the day, and into... More

We are so sorry that your latest experience did not live up to your expectations. And, we are sorry that your child became ill that day and if it was something that he ate at our establishment, we sincerely apologize.
