Deep dish pizza and homemade spinach artichoke dip

I love, love, love Gem City...It is not Downtown Baraboo but rather a few blocks away in an older part of town which has been revitalized as part of the Riverwalk. When the owners of Gem City completely redid this place from a seedy little dive bar and expanded it to what it is now, they kept the... read more

On the outside it looks like a small local bar, and inside the decor is simple but the pizza is excellent. Monday night was surprisingly busy so be prepared to wait. There was only one server and possibly only a couple of kitchen staff. If you in a hurry (in / out in less than an hour), this may not... More

Nice old refurbished building, lovely polished dark woods, large bar, games, etc. The bar tenders are 95% top notch and their bar food is far above badly fried burgers and pigs feet in a jar. Their specialty pizzas and fried breaded chicken pieces in an array of gourmet sauces are our faves. Can't go wrong for an adult beverage and... More

Stop by and say "hi" to Gary and his staff and check out one of the original structures in historic Baraboo. Gem City is a perfect place to catch a cold drink and listen to live entertainment from time to time. Nice location and a very short walking distance to the Driftless Glen Distillery, the Circus World Museum, and the... More

Was looking for Pizza and one person recommended this place so we gave it a try and was very pleased. The pizza is excellent and the staff was great. A neat bar with lots of history and good food. We also found the prices reasonable. We will be back

The Gem is a lively local hang out with occasional live music and big screen TV for sporting events plus pool tables in a separate area. The square shaped thick crust pizza is HUGE and top notch with good sauce and lots of delicious toppings. Chicago style hot dogs with all the traditional trimmings are also a favorite. All the...

There's usually something going on at Gem City (music, comedy, etc.). It's a clean and friendly local hangout. Plus, if you like pool, the tables are usually open and in good condition. They have a good selection, but I wish there was more offered on tap.

If you are looking for great pizza with an excellent crust, this is the place. When we go we order two large supremes, one to eat there and one to take home to re heat the next day.

Met co-workers here for a retirement send off. They served pizza that was very good and so unexpected at a BAR!! Gem City welcomes families too. Very nice staff and friendly service. It's a place many locals flock to to kick back and relax. So popular, I'd say the need more seating! Bar and high tops only.
