Seattle's best Pizza Pub.

I've been going to the Northlake Tavern and Pizza since I was in college in the 1960s. Its still the best Pizza Pub in Seattle. The pizzas are a little expensive, but they have loads of meat on them. Two of us couldn't eat a whole medium Pizza. The pizza are still cooked fresh in a brick oven... read more

I am not a fan of leaving negative reviews and rarely do, but I think it's worth it in this case. I was shocked to order two medium pizzas for pick up (a cheese and a vegetarian) and to receive a bill of over $50! (Just the vegetarian medium alone was $30). I exclaimed surprise at the price and was... More

So we picked up a couple of medium pizza's at Northlake Tavern for a work lunch. I drove my coworker down because he said parking was tough down there which it was. Pretty packed at lunch and very busy. He picked up the pizza's and we drove back to work. The pizza's are loaded and very heavy - they are... More

It is nearby to University of WA and inside expect to see a lot of young faces. The pizzas are loaded with topping and so hard to decide. They have a great selection of beers on hand both tap and bottle. Service is quick and accurate. Food came right away (for a pizza place) I don't know with the new... More

We live in Utah. This was by far the best pizza and pizza house experiences of our lives. After eating there once with my husband and his boss at a business meeting the pizza was so good that I made my husband bring me some back on the plane when he went up to Seattle on business another time.

Best Pizza on the planet! I have been eating this pizza since I was 5 years old and my father brought it home. Perfect crispy crust with just the right amo9unt of sauce topped with heaping amounts of topping and piles of fresh mozzarella cheese. You simply can't miss this pie extravaganza, your tastebuds will never be the same. Simply... More

Northlake Tavern and Pizza House has been serving UW students and local residents for generations. It is consistently good thick pizza -- it is not a thin crust pizza place. Pizzas are loaded with ingredients of your choice. Good selection of beer as well.

Love this pizza, best I have ever eaten. Always get at least 1 large Combo. Two pieces will fill you up. The other thing I love about their pizza's is, if you have leftovers, they taste every bit as good heated up the next day.
