...it's still pretty good. Sometimes you just have to scratch that pizza itch. You swing by Pepe's and there's a two hour line. The Spot, right next door, same thing. What are you to do? BAR can do in a pinch. First off, give due where due, their salad is infinitely better (and way pricier) than Pepe's. In fact, Pepe's... More

This was our second stop on a self-imposed pizza tour of New Haven. My son wanted the mashed potatoes and bacon pizza, while we ordered a white pie with mozzarella and spinach. I do not like mashed potatoes but my son thought it was delicious. The spinach and mozzarella pie was not good at all.

BAR pizza is my favorite New Haven pizza (Modern is a close second). When you combine great pizza with fresh salads and tasty beer in a warehouse chic setting, you have a winning combination. The service is way friendlier than Wooster Square places, but you still may find yourself waiting for a long time (no reservations unless you have a... More

Not big on the atmosphere, but the pies are good. Still not a fan of the mashed potato variations, but like mushroom pies quite a bit.

We loved the mashed potato pizza, it was so unique and delicious! We also had the hot cherry pepper and meatball pizza which was very tasty as well! Good beer and wine, service was good, pizza was delicious. Will definitely eat here again!

I have been told for years by my brother that New Haven style pizza is to die for. Lucky for me I was driving home from Boston to DC when I pursuaded my boyfriend to go a little out of the way so we could see what all the fuss is about. My brother recommended BAR so we stopped here.... More

Went here on a little New Haven pizza tour with friends (also went to Pepe's) and was impressed by the pizza, definitely something a bit different from the style that Pepe's/Sallie's are known for. Was recommended by our friends, New Haven locals, to get the mashed potato pizza and we were impressed, it was something you don't normally see on... More

Stopped in again (every time I'm even close to New Haven!) and the pizza is still amazing. Also loved the microbrews (as usual). My only issue is that the cleanliness of the place seems to be fading. I literally wiped a brown layer of something (old beer?) off of the bar before I ate . . . not great. Also,... More
