The buffet :)

The buffet was great, you got food and it was not old and it was fresh. Price was on point, would love to come back, and great for big groups.

Love this place, hands down best pizza regardless of thin crust or other options for crust ordered. The tomatoes used with the seasonings reminiscent of the sauce used on pizzas back in Chicago, awesome. Appetizers like California dreamers , like pizza rolls with dipping sauce or other appetizers are really good, but it is the pizza that really rocks this... More

We were visiting Tacoma for the first time and staying at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel (which by the way was really nice.) When we asked hotel staff where the downtown was, we were told this is it. Lots of boarded up buildings and vacant store fronts. Needless to say, it's tough to find any decent food there, and not knowing... More

Very affordable to feed the whole family (4 of us) for less than $30 before top during the lunch buffet. Great pizza and the buffet is a great way to try the different kinds.

Very close to the Marriott Courtyard Tacoma - 5 minute walk. I decided to sit at the bar - as a solo business traveler I do this a lot. Great service and more importantly great food. The pie was cooked to perfection and the beers were good. Decided to try one of the guest taps to start with. If you... More

I loved the food here. It was a good wood fired pizza. The pizza was not quite Brooklyn good, but the best I've had in the Northwest.

Walked over to 'The Rock' from the Holiday Inn Express. Had the spinach salad and an IPA. Service was good by (Jessica) in the bar. Salad was average but filling.

Our party of 4 walked in at 7pm on a Thursday and got seated right away. Of course we came for the pizza and weren't disappointed.The waitress(Alissa)was there to take our order promptly and checked on us just the right number of times during our meal. The pizza was loaded with toppings and was delicious, probably in the top 10... More
