We loved the view of the river and bridge. The troll paintings and back story were super cool! Pizza was average, good beer selection. Caesar salad was awesome! No complaints.

We had the vegetarian pizza two times during our stay in Houghton. We did carry-out at the Keewenah Brewery and ate in for lunch another time. The Italian Wedding soup is spectacular. We had a great meal.

You must try the lobster pizza, it was delicious. I also ordered a fish bowl drink that was very cold and refreshing. Love coming to town and eating here.

We ordered a pizza for take out and when we got home the pizza was so burnt it was not edible. We called and the manager was not real accommodating. He did make it right, however, the new one had very little sausage. Very disappointing...More
