My brother was in town for his birthday and we just wanted somewhere casual with great food. This was definitely it. We shared the Renegade pizza with parmesan white sauce, crabmeat, spinach, and artichokes. We decided on tomatoes in place of the broccoli, but the pizza was fresh and delicious. The crab meat pieces were very generously sized, the sauce... More

We selected this restaurant to meet my sister and fiance. I've eaten here before and remembered how great the pizza was. There are still as great as I remember! Pizza portions were large and filled your stomach up. Husband got the Bottoms Up burger which he loved!. Highly recommend for a unique pizza experience.

Been going for years and years. This pizza place has literally survived hurricanes and floods to deliver amazing pizza. The cheese tracks - pizza bread sticks with melted cheese over top is a must start as well as the med salad (get the basil ving dressing as its the best thing on salad in the world). Lots of pizzas -... More

Took the family here while in town for the weekend. It's a small place that sits right by the train tracks which is fun for train enthusiasts. We each had a very large slice of deep dish pizza so we were stuffed when we left. Decent prices, pizza had a lot of flavor with lots of topping choices. I don't... More

Suggested to us by friends who are locals, Bottoms Up rivals any NYC pizza eatery (without the price) but since I was in VA I ordered a seafood pizza. So many choices which includes different crusts (thin, thick or gluten free!), different sauces (white or red) and a multitude of toppings. I have celiac so I have to eat gluten... More

We had a wonderful time with a group of about 25 people on the roof. We reserved it. The food was great. The beverages were good and the service was excellent

Birthday choice. Best choices of pizza. My favorite is seafood. Inside and outside dinning. Upstairs or downstairs. Get there early on weekends. Or get there late. Must be many others favorite too. It has always been busy. Offer other choices on menue. But we just get the pizza.

This may be the best pizza I've ever had. Only partly because I've had some bad pizza lately. I don't really like thick crust on my pizza, but this was phenomenal. The crust was light, not chewy. Crispy, not soggy, but also not burned on the bottom, with just enough red sauce. Why can't anyone else get this right? A... More
