WAs down the weekend that Mathew hit. Was looking for a quick bite with a buddy of mine and this place was great. Got a small pepperoni, mushroom and onion. Sat outside to watch the wind blowing in all the clouds. The next day was when it got really bad. Pizza was good, great service.

Wave Pizza is decent. Nothing to rave about, but wasn't at all bad pizza. Nice place to hang by the water and have pizza and a brew.

Very good slices. Pizza was thin crust and cooked perfectly. Enjoyed a slice on the deck overlooking the sound.

This is a great place for some tasty food. We usually go near sunset, have a leisure meal and then walk down the board walk and watch the sunset. The food tastes great. I keep thinking I will get the pizza as it always looks and smells good but I always get the steak sub. It is yummy. This time... More

We came across this place while enjoying the boardwalk and really liked the sun set view while sitting outside. The service was fast for a custom pizza. The place is basic with the benches and tables, paper plates etc. However, the fresh baked pizza and the view is what you get at this place. They also serve all kinds of... More

When we arrive in town on the first night, we often resort to pizza. This restaurant had a great rating so we gave it a try. The crust was really good, and the pizza "ok".

Great pizza with reasonable prices. We ordered 2 large and 1 small pizza to feed 8 adults. It was almost gone! We will probably eat there again before we leave.

Arrived in Duck after an eight hour ride and order pizza( just plain cheese). We have great pizza places in our home town of Danbury,CT., but this was the best pizza I have had in a long time.
