Best Pizza in Seattle

You have never had pizza this good ! We ordered a small specialty, the small weighs a whopping 2 1/2 pounds. It was piled high and super delicious !! Wish there was one of these restaurants in town.

Truly, a great pizza experience. It stood the test of time! Whether it was me any my buddies devouring the NLT combo, or 20 years later, just barely getting through 1 to 2 slices of the same pizza now... the ambience of the place and the great taste of pizza can't be beat. I always seem to have the same... More

Little overpriced if you ask me the pizza is good but not great , the salad is $5 and a small bowel and the service is alright ... I really wasn't impressed.

This is such a simple review... Incredible pizza! No wonder it's a Seattle landmark. Watch your sports games while having a great brew and the greatest pizza ever. The owner has done it right for so many years and it's still the place to go. Very impressive!

Even after 40 years, Northlake Tavern is our favorite Seattle pizza. The large, loaded pizzas ensure that you won't leave hungry. You can bake their pizzas at home, but it won't taste as good as eating fresh from their oven inside the tavern with a pitcher of your favorite beer.

My Camano Island hosts brought me here to give me some calories between the airport and there home. I'd flown on from the UK. They promised me good pizza. I was delivered great pizza and fantastic beer - Manny's Pale Ale. This pizza puts UK pizzas to shame. It was a medium pizza, it served three and there was still... More

You know that a restaurant really left an impression if you're telling a coworker about it years later! I loved this pizza. The crust wasn't exciting, but the toppings sure were. I loved the chopped olives - I wish more pizzerias offered that. This is definitely a cool place to grab pizza and beer with a group of friends.

The tavern serves my all time favorite pizza. Not a place to take kids, being a tavern, but you can always take it home.

I ate here years ago and remember the heaping amount of toppings. I finally had a chance to return on March 14, 2015. The toppings were good but an average amount. I liked the way they used a generous amount of chopped olives. The sauce could have been more flavorful. The most disappointing was the crust. It was thin and... More
