“Great place.”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Very nice place. Great service and pizza. One of our party is intolerant to gluten so he ordered one of their gluten free pizzas and said it was great. Very attentive to the special diet needs. Fun place with live music outside.

“Finally great pizza”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This restaurant has delicious pizza and salad and the portions are definitely large enough to share. After the first night we ate there and got a larger pizza, the second time we ate there we split a personal pizza and salad and that was plenty. This is the jumping place for young adults as they have an outside patio area and live entertainment so you can just "hang out" and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Families shouldn't be deterred as you can go inside and have a pizza without waiting in a big line. We went twice during a week's stay and we are not big pizza eaters.

“Best Meal While On Vacation”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We went to Base Camp Pizza on a recommendation from a store employee in the area. We are definitely glad we went. The pizza was yummy (BBQ Chicken), the salad was nice and fresh (house salad), the pasta was amazing (Shrimp Penna) and the dessert was to die for (Pear Crisp).

We were on a road trip from Carmel, to San Francisco, to Tahoe and then Yosemite. Base Camp Pizza was the best meal we had the entire trip.
