“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Our first night in Deep Creek Lake we decided to order take out from Brenda's (based on Trip Advisor reviews). At first I thought it was expensive. $154 for 5 pizzas and 3 antipastos. I would never have to spend that at home. Everything was excellent. The pizzas are large. The antipasto was excellent!! We feed 16 people that night and everyone was hungry after a long travel day. We definitely had leftovers for the next day's lunch. So in the long run it wasn't that pricey. Definitely a good place to get pizza from, just be prepared to spend a little more.

“One of our favorite DCL restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A visit to the Deep Creek Lake area should include dining at Brenda's Pizzeria at Trader's Landing. They are a casual family oriented restaurant that serves very good food. We've tried items from every category on their menu and have not been disappointed. They have a variety of interesting appetizers, their salads are fresh and crisp, their pizza dough has an excellent flavor, and their signature dishes are tasty. My husband has a particular fondness for their stromboli. On our most recent visit to Brenda's for a late dinner, we found the AC at to a level that was probably comfortable during the evening dinner rush but left us quite cold. Our server immediately made the necessary adjustments so that we could dine in comfort. We eat out frequently when in the DCL area and Brenda's is always on our "menu".

“A Grand Place for the Gluten-Free Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Brenda's has gluten free pasta although no gluten free pizza (you have to go the Uno's for that). But, the gluten-free pasta with marinara sauce was excellent and the service quite good.
