I love this place! I come here often and enjoy the huge selection of beers they have. Service is great and the employees interact with the costumers making them feel comfortable. Overall, low key spot after a long day at work!

We stayed here at the Longview inn for a medical procedure my mom was having. We needed dinner but didn't want to spend the money to eat at the Longview restaurant so we looked for delivery! This place makes excellent pizza! Thin crust and the large was more than enough for 3 people! You can't beat the price at a... More

My son recommended this place so we tried takeout recently. The pizza is very tasty. Thin crust, with a nice zesty sauce. Reminiscent of Emma's in Huron Village, back in the day. This is basically a neighborhood bar, at the base of MIssion Hill, that now has a pizza kitchen in the rear. Craft beers are the big difference to... More

My family wanted something light while we were visiting a patient in the hospital's near Brigham's It was a short walk from the hospital zone on a nice day. Good pizza selections . A large filled 3 of us with a salad to split. Thin crust, not greasy. Beverage selection was substantial as well

Great lunch break from visiting family in the Longwood medical area. Must be 20 beers on tap, retro vibe, butternut squash pizza. A great break from hospital food! Enjoyed the guys at the bar, and they made an extra effort to male a lactose free pizza for me. Well done!

Penguin Pizza is on the corner of Francis Street and Huntington Avenue, easily accessible from the hospitals. It has a relaxed atmosphere and is a great place to take a lunch break or go for after work drinks. The beer selection is fantastic! The best thing about Penguin, though, is the pizza specials. You can get a specialty slice (1/4... More

Twice during a recent hospital stay, my family had dinner at Penguin Pizza. It's small, so expect to wait or get there a bit early, but it's worth it. The first night, we had the Honolulu pizza. The toppings may seem a bit spare on some slices, but you can actually eat the pizza with its amazing thin crust this... More

Very hard to find "real" pizza like in NJ/NY, but here is where you can find it. And to top it off the beer selection with beers on tap and craft beers is nice and long. Service was good and server knew about the beers and assisted in my selection. A must for pizza and beer lovers!

Love this place. Massive beer selection and the staff know what they're talking about of you aren't sure what to drink. I would've given 5 stars, but the meals weren't as good the last time I went. Usually they are really good. Best place to sit is either at the bar, or in the restaurant. The window seat seems cool,... More
