Great sandwiches; not so great pizza

We have been here many times - the Tamarak special (an oven-toasted sub sandwich) is out of this world - if you like hot, crispy fries, this is the place. Had the pizza once - not great - not terrible, just not great - crust was without flavor. Hamburgers are some of the best you will ever have... read more

The food was very good but we went there wanting pizza and it wasn't served until 5 pm. The cheese curds were too much for how many they give you.

The pizza here is very good. You won't find a better pizza in this city. I am from the east coast so there are not very many pizzas in the Midwest that I give a thumbs up to. It is small inside. There is a bar area and a seated area. It's not a quiet place and if you have... More

What a awesome place to eat. The pizza was amazing. Drinks was tasty and the kids enjoyed the pizza. There was only one waitress and they got real busy but she was awesome never was we forgot. Food came out fast and she was never rude. Oh and to add to it the bill wasn't expensive at all. Wonderful place.

They always win the best burger award and rightly so. I always say I am gonna order something different because others say the steak sandwich, pizza and gyros are great. But then once I am sitting at the bar, I can't help it... cheeseburger with double cheese and fried onions. MMMM the best. The PERFECT grease to flavor ratio. Juicy... More

My favorite pizza place went out of business, and tired of Pizza Hut, I decided to try Tamarack's pizza. I have been driving by, but hAve never stopped. The place was old and dingy. I saw grossness under the are where the bartenders were deep frying. I got the pizza and it was all thin crust, but pretty good. Not... More

Hamburgers are great, pizza also a great choice to order. Quick service and a bar/grill type restaurant.

They have the best burgers, there meat is ground fresh daily, there the best ! I have to be honest the pizza is OK, nothing to complain about or to rave about. If you want a great burger this is the place.
