“About a zillion brew on tap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great pizza, great service, what more can you say? A short walk from many of the area's attractions including the Aquarium, Chattanooga Lookouts minor league ball team. Very close to the Courtyard Marriott and the Chestnut Street Marriott Residence Inn.

“Still waiting to try the pizza”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I'd like to tell you how good the specialty pizzas were. I really would like to but I can't because we didn't get to try them. I understand it gets busy, but after waiting 40 minutes to be seated and then another 10 before we got our drink orders we were told that the kitchen was running behind and it would be at least a 45 minute wait for pizza. The waiter recommended we get cheesy bread to tide the kids over while we waited. So we ordered some kids meals, the recommended cheesy bread, some pretzels and a few simple salads instead of what we really wanted. The kids meals showed up without too much delay thankfully, but the rest of it took 40+ minutes. Yes, the cheesy bread that was supposed to tide the kids over during the 40 minute wait took longer to get to us than the meals it was supposed to tide them over for. And the salads? 40 minutes for SALAD? Did we have to wait for them to grow the lettuce? I'd still like to try some of those specialty pizzas, but I seriously doubt that I ever will.

“Over Priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Medium two topping pizza which had six slices and a chicken Calzone full of dough and not much meat, two beers( Heinkens) and a small Pepsi, $ 42.00. Way to much money for those items , service was good, wait time for the food was pretty long. Average rating is pushing it here... but good friendly service saves this experience

“Ended up great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

For a rainy day in Chattanooga, it was a great day. The pizza had way too much corn meal and the manager came over, apologized and took it off, even though he didn't have to. I am very impressed and will be back!

“I would leave if I didn't pay for parking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We were visiting from out of town and heard the pizza was good. The service was slow, maybe they need more employees. The pizza was burnt and not very good. I've had better service and food elsewhere.
