We've been going since the 70's

This place doesn't change and that's a good thing. The food is excellent, the waitstaff friendly and pizzas are special. One side is a seafood restaraunt and the other half is a pizza bar. When I was younger no beer or wine were allowed on the seafood side and the waitresses worked there, the pizza... read more

I have been going to Bratskellar since the 1970s ...yes.... that long. In all that time - despite wherever I fly in the world or what country I visit .... there simply is no better PIZZA on the planet than here. Don't believe me? I challenge you to go there and see for yourself. I don't know if it's the... More

If you love pizza this is the place to go. No other pizza like it. They have the best pizza and the coldest beer. Check it out for yourself and if you don't like pizza they also have great subs and the Dinnerhorn is on the other side for seafood or other entrees.

Go to the Bar side (back) and order a bar pizza. Also they have the coldest beers in town (maybe the state).

Been going here for years and recently reserved a group luncheon. The weather was snowy that day but the staff and service were excellent, the food was tasty with good portions and the price was right. This place never disappoints! Thanks again!

The food is fine but not special. The prices ae good. Service is efficient. We stop in when we don't want to go downtown or we want a reasonably priced meal. I like their fish and chips or chowder. Plenty of parking in front.
