Stopped in for a salad and sandwich. I ordered a large Cobb salad. It was fabulous. Two whole sliced avocados in it. Couldn't eat the entire salad, have enough for lunch tomorrow. The Chefs Club had fresh ingredients, but my husband reported it was just OK. Thought it would have been better if they would have put on the dressing... More

When we lived in Madison, this was our hands-down favorite for pizza. Glass Nickel had so many great creations that it was hard to pick a favorite. However, I eventually settled on the BBQ Chicken. My son liked the Thai pizza and so those were the two we ended up getting on a consistent basis for our family of five.... More

While this place is tricky to find and it's disappointing that pizza's bosom buddy, Beer, isn't available here, we thought our pretty straight ahead pepperoni pizza was pretty straight ahead. Service was okay, and we brought our own ambiance, and we did have a good time and good pizza, but all told we wouldn't bother tracking it down again -... More

Ordered takeout Aug 2013. Have eaten pizza from here since early 2010. Online (Internet) ordering is easy to use. And you can customize much more than other restaurants (chose the type of pizza sauce and cheese for instance). Check for COUPONS on their website. Delivery available but call to make sure they will come to your address. Click on [MORE]... More

Excellent job with their GF pizzas and handling contamination. Always happy to visit with the employees and enjoy a slice of heaven.

I've ordered from their east side location many times for delivery to downtown office building, and only tried this one because I had a coupon. The Supreme pizza was very good, crust is a little thick, but a good value. Great leftovers, several good TV's, very friendly staff. Worst part of this place is trying to find it! It is... More

This pizza tastes great but every time we have had it we felt terrible the next day. I suspect they put some kind of flavor enhancer in it. :(

We ordered some delivery and we got 3 subs, one of which was a build your own and the other two were regular subs. Out of the three of them, two were made incorrectly and all three of them were not very good tasting. And then on top of all that, it was delivered much later than they said it... More

You have to try the Fetalicious pizza. The whole menu is great and there is an option for everyone. My wife and I are vegetarian and the Fetalicious never feels like you're settling or wasting a pizza.

Make no mistake, Glass Nickle is a regional chain. I would call it better than average commercial pizza; consistent, convection pizza, which does travel pretty well for relatively fast delivery. A coupon for "late-night munchies" (14" one-topping @ $10, when paying cash) is really the best deal in town for late (late-ish, only 'til 1 am?)...munchies. Phone service and delivery,... More
