“Pizza and Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Terrific pizza and tasty beer. What more could you ask for? The patio seating area was a terrific setting and the atmosphere was buzzing with conversation. I would definitely revisit Jupiter if I were in the area. Prices a little bit on the high side, but that seems to be the case in most of Berkeley.

“Live music on the patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Seeking live music on the patio? Jupiter is a great experience. The patio is first come first serve seating. But you can get a glass of wine, a pint of beer, or hard cider with a great pizza while listening to great live music under the stars. A fun experience.

“Great Pizza and Beer in Berkeley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Jupiter is one of my favorite pubs in Berkeley. I simply love their beers and pizzas. I am always finding excuses to eat and drink at Jupiter when visiting Berkeley. Their selection of beers on tap is pretty good. They also have a seasonal beer sometimes. The pizzas are also quite delicious and flavorful. Expect to pay USD 20-30 per person

“Awesome outside patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Came in after dinner for drinks. Brew their own beers, honey wheat has nice balance. Outdoor patio with running water features and fire pits is beautifully done. Wonderful atmosphere to sit and enjoy a drink; would love to go back and try the awesome looking pizza!

“Fun atmosphere, delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I came here on a Saturday evening, so it was fairly busy. We came in and were told there would be a 15-20 minute wait to be seated. When they saw the distress on my mom's face from hunger, they decided to set us up at a table and explained that they only mean not to burden the kitchens as much.

The atmosphere was hip and fun, they had a bar and outdoor free seating. The place was filled with young people, as UC Berkeley is right nearby.

They set us down upstairs and left me with a root beer on tap that was fairly flat and without ice cubes, but still tasted good. Their caesar salad was your average tasty caesar salad, nothing special. The pizza, once it did come out after much waiting, was very fresh and delicious. The crust was very good, and the toppings on the Triton were very satisfying: fennel pork sausage, onion, and basil on a mozzarella/marinara base. My parents also shouted rave reviews over the mushroom pizza they ordered.

Recommendation: a 13 inch pizza is good for two people to share and feel full.
