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.

Decent food, reasonable prices.

Food was decent. They have a nice outdoor area if you choose to eat outside. Prices are reasonable for the area.

Really good pizza at a really good price. Daily special from 4-6 is a steal and I almost felt bad paying such a small amount for so much food. We go here every few days. It may be packed but it's worth the wait.

Worth the wait! We ended up eating here both nights we were in town and enjoyed the outdoor dining. After dinner we found a great walking trail behind the restaurant beside the river. Beautiful place to watch a sunset!

I have eaten here two different trips. Both times I have had their pizza special. It is a great value and the pizza is big and good. We took half of it with us. They do a great job here.

This used to be a good place. Resting on laurels and getting worse. Can you believe a pizza restaurant that runs out of cheese and cannot make pizza? Might be understandable in fall when winding the season down. BUT in the niddle and height of tourist season? Better get it together. Food used to have taste, now bland.

Upon arrival, we were met with a long list of what was NOT available on their menu. I understand that small mountain towns have difficulty in getting shipments, but you should prepare for a weekend. That said, the food that we had was mediocre. We opted not to get pizza, since we observed a messed up pizza order prior to... More

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.
