The pizzas are good with gluten free options. The salads are also a strong suit and the local craft beer is available with numerous others plus wine. No liquor. This is walkable if you're staying at the Herlong Mansion. Service is good. Sandwiches are also available.

This place has great pizza and great desserts. At this location it is rather small. Not a place for large crowds but the food is good and the service is good.

Thank you for your review! Yesterday, Saturday was the single most busy day of our year, the McIntosh Festival 1890's Day. So, we cranked from 11:30 until close, doing an incredible volume of food. Our Team was stoked, prepared and spot on all through lunch and dinner. With only 9 tables inside and the 4 picnic tables outside the Team... More

Had lunch at Blue Highway Micanopy today. Service was slow but pleasant. Menu was extensive and much more than just pizza. Wine and beer available but, unfortunately, served in plastic cups. Food delicious and plentiful. A good stop on Hwy 441.

So glad you enjoyed the food, we are only licensed for single service ware, hence the plastic cups. We are able to recycle them in Alachua County and the rest of our disposable service ware is either recyclable or biodegradable. Please come back soon. More

Their toppings are excellent. Wasn't thrilled with the bacon but the chicken and Italian sausage were great. Personally I preferred the pan style over the thin crust. One pizza lasted me for three meals.

Thank you for recognizing the quality ingrediants as well as the value offered. The Scilian style pizza is a substantial pie; we recommend it for 3-4 guests and our thin crust pizzas for 1-2. More

The original Blue Highway Pizzeria in Micanopy is definitely worth the drive from Ocala. The food is fresh and made to order. The menu offers a good variety of sizes including Sicilian, and many unique toppings. The staff is very attentive. Indoor and outdoor dining. Overall a good experience. You can get the same food in a more modern setting... More

This is the place for pizza! Prices:Competitive and comparable to others. Atmosphere : Not a big place, but you can see the pizza ovens and the workers hand tossing the dough. Staff was cheerful and nice. Bar: Beer, some locals, cans definitely.

Read other reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try. They use all local resources. As the waitress said they have no freezer or fryer. Everything handmade down to the salad dressings. When you walk in your eyes must adjust to the dark inside. Very cozy and small sitting area. We got the lunch special of a personal pizza with salad.... More

After Gator Game Day, this is a great spot to check out instead of getting onto I-75 with all the traffic. Backroad out of Gainesville. Super small place with a bar and tv. Everything made to order so may take longer but excellent crust and sauce . Excellent!

Wow! Go Gators! Thank you for coming to Micanopy Blue Highway for your after game pizza. We put a lot into our food and your recognition that our food made to order from quality ingredients is well worth a slightly longer wait. More

Stopped at this restaurant on my way to Gainesville. Ordered some chicken wings I waited for 35 minutes in a basically empty restaurant and then ask the waitress where the wings were and she said it probably be about another 6 to 10 minutes. why would it take 40-50 minutes to cook up chicken wings I got up and left.

Thank ZynthesisGville
Winny R, Owner at Blue Highway Pizzeria, responded to this review

My deepest apologies. I will find out what happened that took so long for your wings. It looks like you were in the Micanopy location on Saturday or Sunday. Other than Hermine which set us back, your wings should have not taken that long. Understand that we do not have a fryer or a stove, only a panini press and... More

My husband and I were staying in Payne's Prairie and looking for someplace for dinner in Micanopy. Blue Highway is one of the few places open on Monday after 5.
