Great Pizza place. All they serve. Great thin crust pizza. Popular local place with great view of lake. Thin crust . Best to get own pizza.

I can't figure out how people can rave about this place. I'm fairly laid back about things but really, this place literally only serves ultra thin crust pizza and doesn't do that well. There aren't sides available except I saw individual bags of chips. No salad, soup, nothing. With only 6 toppings to chose from, you'd think at least they... More

I feel like I was being punked eating at this restaurant. This was our first visit to Muskegon and we were just looking for some quick pizza for dinner. First of all, the hosting is highly unorganized, but that's not really that important. When we sat down we were surprised and disappointed that they only serve pizza, and you only... More

Went there very late on a Saturday night (about 11pm). The menu is as simple as can be: the pizzas are all the same size, with the same type of crust (paper thin), with a choice of five toppings. That's it, period. For the most part, the pizza is really good and one per person is just the right portion.... More

Fricanos is a household name in the West Michigan area and it does boast good pizza, but it is not the best in the area. The pizza basically comes one way (no menu to order from) it is paper thin, on the greasy side, and has a strong Parmesan flavor. The atmosphere is pleasing and the staff is great.

The sauce on this ultra thin pizza is so delicious, with a variety of toppings. Also very accommodating, efficient, and friendly staff. The restaurant is clean and spacious with a beautiful view of Muskegon Lake, sailboats, and the bike trail. We love this place. Also, there's a fun ice cream parlor in the lower level. Highly recommend this pizza restaurant!

Beer, wine, pizza with a view, that's it! Beer was cold, pizza was good. Thin crust with 6 choices of toppings. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We would go back.

I grew up going to the original Fricano's in Grand Haven. Ted is one of the sons and has done a good job converting the old factory into a pizza restaurant and event center. If you like really, really thin pizza with limited topping choices, this is your place (and hey don't serve anything but pizza). I guess you can... More

We went here on recommendation of our hotel. Big mistake. When we arrived, we waited about 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence. It was very busy, but someone, anyone, should have been manning the host stand. This place has only pizza. Thin crust, light sauced, flavorless, greasy, soggy pizza. Nothing else. No salads...nothing. I was very disappointed.
