Wow--really terrific pizza

The Brown Dog specializes in what they call Detroit pizza--a square shape, baked in automotive part-quality steel pans. The result is a really crispy cheesy crust---yum! The owner has won all kinds of international pizza competitions for his creations. Try the 313--a winner. The restaurant is... read more

I went here as part of my ski clubs "pub crawl" I don't drink so I went looking for a decent place to eat. Brown Dog Pizza advertises Detroit style pizza. I had never heard of Detroit Style pizza before. Being from Northern New Jersey I thought I was familiar with most varieties of pizza. (I learned that Detroit style... More

Excellent pizza, kid friendly, not to be missed! We tried the two award winning pizzas-one from 2013 and one from 2014. Outstanding!

This was on our list of kid-friendly places to eat during our Winter Vacation trip with our 2 and 6 year old. Our family loves pizza and we often make all kinds of creative pies at home. Nothing we've ever had or made can touch the deliciousness that is the Detroit-style square pizza from Brown Dog. Sauce: amazing, Crust: to... More

I took a group of skier there, 30 of us. We had to come early to get enough room. We had a deal, all you can eat salad and pizza for an affordable rate. My first experience with Detroit Pizza. Being from the East Coast, I never hear of it. The pizza was fantastic with a crunchy outside. The regular... More

Food above average- good wings and decent pizza. With the popularity of the Brown Dog it seems like the staff have acquired a bit of a chip on their shoulder- just because we are willing to wait for an hour or so for a table, we still expect to be treated well.

Brown Dog Pizza was quite the experience. The food was excellent. We had a Detroit style BBQ Chicken Pizza. It was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was really fun. It's a sports bar type place with all types of sports memorabilia all over the walls. It was a little crowded though. We kept getting bumped by people and it felt like... More

We had to wait for quite awhile to get in but as we all know that is always a good sign of a good restaurant. The pizza's were very unusual and it was tough to make a choice so we ordered more than one. The Detroit Square was just amazing.
