Good staple for Midwestern pizza

Really good pizza. In addition to unique combinations, Leaning Tower usually pays attention to the crust. The Potters is the flagship. Right amount of sauce, sausage, meets and just a hint too much cheese, with celery! Usually a top pizza in Minneapolis, only outdone by Black Sheep in 2015. Enjoy... read more

Another one of those sports bars in the Uptown area that has never invested in upgrading its aging facilities. Restrooms are perpetually dirty and one feels that the dining tables are not that great wither. Food is average at best, but if you are looking just for a bar to drink it's OK. Food is not that great.

I don't understand how this place stays in business. I know they have a good happy hour and a nice location, but the pizza here is basically Walmart quality. I literally felt like I had just been scammed after biting into my giant slice($4) of pepperoni. Domino's, Pizza Hut, and Little Caesars all serve up much better food(at a fraction... More

Two of us went for a late after after a show. We had the chicken wings, we each had a caesar salad, then we shared one of their great pizzas. All were perfect. We probably should have chosen a pizza without jalapenos. They were fine, but after the spicy wings, we should have stuck to the sausage & pepperoni. My... More

When traveling alone for work it's sometimes hard to find a trendy place where you feel comfortable. Leaning Tower of Pizza has it all: Very good ( thin crust ) pizza, very welcoming staff ( Brit was great ), and the best atmosphere( people watching). Plus, I really came for the beer and they have an "intoxicating - hah" selection... More

I love the Leaning Tower! Daily drink specials with 2-4-1s makes this an ideal Friday/Saturday night spot if you want to avoid the Calhoun Square/LynLake crowds. The place is never packed or terribly loud, so you can actually carry on a dinner conversation with your friends/date. I am also please with their delicious, affordable appetizer menu (especially during Happy Hour).

The 2-4-1s during happy hour are enough for me. They have a great selection of taps including hard cider, which is my fave.
