“GREAT PIZZA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Hit the Pizza Place on our last night. We walked in at 7:45 and had no wait, we ordered our Pizza and had a few beers while it was being cooked. Awesome staff (Gave me a remote to one of their many flat screens so I could check some college football scores) GREAT experience. Highly recommend!

“Enjoyed it! Will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Though it does not look like much from the outside, the Pizza Place was a great find! Service was much more than we expected...friendly and helped us with the options as this was our first visit. Sounds like most people get the flat bread style, but we prefer traditional or deep dish. I ordered the greek pizza and my wife got the Hawaiian. The chef came out proactively to check on the pizza's since they normally do those on flatbread and wanted to ensure they were fully cooked. The greek was just EXCELLENT!

“Great pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We sort of got 'stuck' going here around 9pm one night because everything in Highlands closes so early this was about the only place left open. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the pizza was fabulous and they were so nice to us even though we came in close to closing time. Maybe not the cleanest joint in the world but it had been open all day and very busy. Good pizza though! I'd go again.

“Excellent pizza with a very casual atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We spent a 3 day weekend camping in Highlands, the mountains are beautiful! However as a place that is largely supported by tourism we felt snubbed by the locals on more than one occasion. True we smelled of camp fire and could have probably benefited from a razor and hairdryer but that is what camping is about.....alright about the restaurant, right? It was a delight to find this little gem with it's out of date 80's plastic seating and bad lighting. We were finally accepted without being given a look. With that said the place is very casual, great for friends hanging out, great for families, not so much for a romantic evening though. The menu was amazing specialty pizzas are available as well as create your own of course, we had 3 in our party so we each chose a different 6" to sample and all three were excellent. They also serve beer which was a plus for us and the GA game was on, I would def. go here again.

“Excellent made-to-order pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

This pizza was fantastic and hit the spot tonight after a long day of hiking. Good cold beer selection. We got Stella, but they have others, including PBR. The cook made our crust extra thin upon request and the sauce was great, not sweet, and the pizza came loaded with cheese. Perfect!
