Really Truly Underground!

Our intended lunch destination had closed a couple weeks earlier so we decided to try this unique location. It's amazing, with old stone walls and a low ceiling, but they do a good job of lighting overall. The character of the place is just great.

Super great pizza, super great people. Very neat atmosphere being below street level. Fun beer options. One of our favorites in Muscatine.

This is our favorite place! We love their pizza. It is a great place for a date night or a family night. They have a full bar. Nice atmosphere.

Just head to Hy-Vee and grab a Jack's frozen pizza, cut out the middleman. The quality of food experienced on a recent lunch visit fell somewhere between a pleasant surprise at the hospital cafeteria and a mediocre trip to Golden Corral.

This place has very cool atmosphere. Take the open stairwell from the sidewalk above. (Reminiscent of the sitcom Cheers) It kind of gives you the feeling you're entering a secret speakeasy. A rustic look to this basement pizza joint with exposed floor joists on the ceiling and old limestone and mortar walls with nostalgic decor. A nice selection of beer... More

consistent quality, good thin crust pizza, short hours, tends to be too dark to read, regular staff faces who give good service, fair prices, pasta and meat sauce isn't too special but OK, downstairs location, may be hard to find one first visit. after lunch great ice cream pastry place Elly's, upstairs in the building

We were very impressed with our food AND by the service. We ordered the spinach dip appetizer (I could eat the pizza crust wedges all day) and a Fill the Basement version of the super specialty pizza with shrimp and alfredo (I can't remember the name). We were glad we got a large pizza so we didn't need to worry... More

Great atmosphere, great food, and great service! Lacey, Mitch, Nikki, Danielle, and the rest of the crew go above and beyond for their customers. This is my absolute favorite place!

While surrounding its patrons with the most unique atmosphere in the city, the Underground serves delicious food, has outstanding service, and offers an interesting selection of wines and beers. My all-time favorite place to eat!
