A solid pizza place and fun cocktails

A nice little pizza place with a fun rock theme. We had two pizzas, a white sauce pizza and just a standard pepperoni. The pepperoni was a bit greasy for my taste and I thought the prices were a bit high, but on the whole a fun and good meal.

Thank you trip advisor! We needed to have a quick bite before our evening concert. Close to the Tacoma Dome, and perfect atmosphere! The restaurant is designed to look like backstage of concert and the menu items were brilliantly named after concert themes. My husband and I loved the music. The flight of beer sample was great way to introduce... More

We ate here twice on a recent visit to Tacoma. Good food at very reasonable prices and a decent choice of beers. One night was very busy, extremely noisy, screaming kids at the next table, in fact everyone seemed to be shouting but excellent pizza - big enough to share and a great Waitress. The second evening the place was... More

Stopped in while on business trip as it was just across the street from where I parked and was very pleased with the pizza they recommended and very good service. Next to a college so may get very busy when classes are in session.

Not a bad place to get some pizza. they have a pretty unique pizza menu and they all really sound pretty interesting. Out Pizza was really good. my wife and I shared the medium (12 inch) but honestly it was a bit too small. Luckily we split a dinner salad and with that it was an adequate amount of food.... More

Very good pizza place inside an old warehouse with interesting brick décor and rough hewn tables. The pizza are very good, with lots of toppings and cheese. It also has a good variety of local beers and some good finds among them. Great for a quick pizza and beer with the boys.

This is my second time there and will be my last. The group I was with chose it. The temp was so hot in there, I melted in my seat! Sorry, but I find their pizza's way over priced for what you get. Service was painstakingly slow to top it off. I couldn't wait to get out of there.

We don't usually go out for pizza but we were in a hurry. Big mistake assuming pizza would be fast. The wait for a small pizza was over 40 minutes. They weren't busy and it was not peak meal time. The pizza was good. Pricey but we would give it one more chance in the future.
