Ate here in January with friends (5 of us). It was very crowded (~7pm) so had to wait a while to get a table. They have a very good bar, though, which made the wait fly by. Bartenders and waiters were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go there again.

We go to this restaurant every time we visit Heavenly. The prices are reasonable, and the quality of the food is always consistent. The only downside is that they are almost always busy, but the silver lining is that the take out process is very simple and convenient so the options are endless.

We were a group of 15 people and they gave us seating in their patio which had heaters all around and they also gave us blankets so were cozy and comfortable. There was live music and the beer and hot drinks were very good. The pizzas were delicious. Would go back again.

My first time here yesterday. Came after a long day of boarding around 5pm and we were able to score two seats at the bar. The bartendar Jared is so sweet and attentive. For drinks, I tried the gin gin (mule) and it was delicious and came with a piece of ginger candy. Then he recommended to is his favorite... More

My family loves Base Camp Pizza and apparently so does everyone else. There is typically a wait, so bring your patience...it will be rewarded with yummy, fresh, hot pizza!!! Check into yelp to get free garlic fries. They are so good...I'd pay for them (but they're free with yelp check in!!!). Plus the servers are really friendly and accommodating. Definitely... More

This has to be the best pizza I have ever eaten. The high reviews for this place, and the long wait time for seating, are totally justified. We tried the Base Camp and the Smokey BBQ Chicken and both pizzas were excellent. The salads were large and delicious with obviously fresh ingredients. This place is conveniently located in Heavenly Village... More

Came here one night and it was a 2 1/2 hour wait so we decided to come the next night early. We started with the pear and pecan salad. It was amazing! We then had the base camp pizza and it was good but not worth a 2 1/2 hour wait! Wine list needs an upgrade with higher quality options.... More
