Great Food and time

Trying tis place for the first time....they get five stares. Wide variety on menu, plus build your own. If some one in your group doesn't want pizza, they have variety of other items also. Staff is professional, and pizza is great. One of the best I have had since I moved up here.

Glass Nickel Pizza always comes out on top of all pizza places that are rated in the Madison area year after year. The thing that most people don't realize is how truly extraordinarily good the salads are and the variety of salads they offer. This is an incredible healthy selection and you don't just have to get pizza at this... More

This is without a doubt my favorite pizza for dine-in or delivery, at whichever of their locations around Madison. This is restaurant quality pizza for delivery, excellent crust, fast friendly delivery and never have disappointed me. They are the only place I've been to that had a "Deluxe" pizza with no olives and I hate olives, so THANK YOU Glass... More

There is a reason this place gets rated ‘best pizza’ by our weekly newspaper The Isthmus. It is the best! On a recent Sat night my boyfriend & I ate in the very small dining room of their west side location. We thought we’d try something new so got the Sucre Blue. Oh my was it out of this world... More

Good pizza, recommended to me, but a bit too expensive by my usual standards. I wanted to try the feta, but was roped into the deluxe - a simple pepperoni/sausage. Good crust.

From funky toppings to your old favorites, Glass Nickel is a Madison institution for solid reasons. I prefer to order in and get my pizza deliver fast, hot and delicious every time.

Staff at the Staybridge East recommended. Called the number on the brochure (3 different numbers) and it turned out to be the one closer to Staybridge West. When they couldn't find us they called and said we called the one farer away. Didn't know. Never been there before. However, did receive the closer number and they credited the account. The... More

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
