Huge slices of amazing pizza, good beer selection and great sidewalk seating. What more could you want from a pizza place?

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Really good pizza ready to eat by the slice @ 3-4 dollars a slice. I get pizza here once a week. I love the fancy meat but the vegetarian is also good..The only thing I do not like is when it is hot outside ,it is very hot in the building. Pizza ovens tend to do that.They make a gluten free crust on request. It is worth trying!

“Mississippi Pizza Pub & Atlantis Lounge: Great Music and the Best Gluten Free Pizza in Portland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I'd like to qualify this review by stating that the first part focus's on the Mississippi's gluten-free pizza. For those of you who don't have to worry about a gluten-free diet, skip down to the fourth paragraph for a review of the Atlantis Lounge and the pub's live music and entertainment offerings.

For anyone who must be gluten-free, finding places to to dine while traveling can be a real problem. Any experienced gluten-free traveler knows that not every dining establishment that claims to have a gluten-free menu truly understands the requirements of a gluten-free diet. One must always be wary of cross-contamination, especially when it comes to such things as pizza. The Mississippi Pizza Pub is one place that does understand what it means to be truly gluten-free. They offer both regular and gluten-free pizzas, but they have a separate gluten-free oven to ensure there is no cross-contamination. Too often, gluten-free pizza crust has the consistency of cardboard and only comes in one size. The Mississippi offers three different sizes and a choice of over 20 different gluten-free pizzas. There is truly something for everyone's tastes including your standard pepperoni, vegetarian, or artisan pizza. Checkout their website for a full list of their pizzas and prices (http://www.mississippipizza.com/). The crust, in my opinion, is the best I have ever had. It is thin but soft and is the closest I have ever had in taste and texture to real pizza crust. Furthermore, you can wash it all down with a gluten-free beer or cider.

They do deliver to a limited area, but I highly recommend making the trip to the pub. The pub itself is located in North Portland's Mississippi district, a great little neighborhood with lots of interesting shops. They are open late, and you can usually order a fresh baked pizza until 11:00 or 11:30 pm. You can also order pizza by the slice from a large selection of already baked pizzas which they continue to sell after they shut down the ovens.

Once you finish with your pizza, check out the pub's Atlantis Lounge. It's laid back and cozy and offers beer, wine, cider, and mixed drinks with fresh squeezed juices. Mark, the bartender, is friendly and really knows how to make a drink. If you don't have to worry about gluten, try one of his bourbon and homemade ginger ale cocktails. The pub/lounge atmosphere is casual and friendly, and on any given day you'll find a wide range of age groups represented. There is free nightly live music. You can choose to sit up front next to the band or back in the lounge. Either way, and one of the things I most appreciated, the music wasn't so loud that you can't have a conversation. We were there on a Saturday night and listened to three different bands. The first was acoustic folk, the second was hard rock, and the third was an all girl rock band that was a bit on the punk side. All were very good. During the day there is literally something going on every day of the week including including such things as trivia and many family friendly kid events. Once again, I would check out their website calendar for a list of events and times (http://www.mississippipizza.com/calendar/). In short, I highly recommend the Mississippi Pub to anyone, gluten-free or not, who likes good pizza or enjoys a cozy lounge with live music. I know I will definitely make a point of returning the next time I am in Portland.

“Snobby Upstate NY Pizza Aficionado Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Flew in to hang out with my BFF in Portland and she brought me to Mississippi Pizza. We took the kids and for the four of us, including drinks, and buying specialty slices we spent under $30 which was great! It's obvious that the toppings are high end, and the slices are BIG. I loved the tomato feta slice...and the artichoke...OH and don't miss the bread sticks!

(reviewers complaining about the prices should go to Pizza Hut and hunker down with Chef-Boy-Ardee pizza made from a jar...Or pick up a frozen rising-crust, the prices at Mississippi aren't bad and the pie is gourmet.)

The Pizza Chef was friendly and the place was all around cool. Outside there was a public eating/seating area that was very cool.

Overall; This pizza was delish, and this place has my vote!

“Yummers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Great pizza! Vibrant scene, very reasonably priced. Wonderful neighborhood find. They offer weekly pizza topping specials (purple broccoli was the special when we were there). A little noisy inside if there is a band playing in the bar next door, but it's all fun.
