“Nice pizza joint...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I enjoyed Moon River Pizza. The location is a bit of a put-off at first (run-down strip mall). However, the pizza is seriously good. My wife and I shared a White Pizza, which was well-prepared, baked perfectly, and had a tremendous flavor. They are quite fond of oregano, but it worked out well because...so am I. I placed an carryout order on Saturday night and was told 45 minutes. I arrived 35 minutes after and my order was ready to go. One negative: they only accept cash or a local check, so I had to run to the gas station next door and pull cash from an ATM.

“Yummy Large Slices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Very large portions! Keep that in mind when you order. 1 Moon River Slice is close to 2 slices I'm used to from big chains. If you love toppings this is the place to go. The toppings is what makes the pizza. Be sure to bring cash travelers. No credit card machine and only local checks accepted.

“Now THIS is pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Moon River Pizza (www.moonriverpizza.net) came recommended by a local, and when we found it, it didn't look like much for all the hype - shopping center location, order at the counter, cement floors...but the full tables told us that it was worth a shot. If you're nearby - go! Pizza is hand-tossed within view, and the crust was cooked perfectly. Tons of topping choices to please just about any palate. Clearly a popular place with the locals - everyone behind the counter seemed to know almost all the customers. Super friendly and attentive waitresses. Greek salad was extra tasty, too (but comes with Caesar dressing?). Will definitely return.

“#1 Takeout Choice on the Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Some will debate the source of the best island pizza: Moon River, Arte or The Loop. Arte wins the gourmet and ambience vote; The Loop wins the menu variety vote; but Moon River wins hands down on fresh, quality, mainstream pies. The key: go off-peak, or expect a long, often unpredictable wait. Not fond of dining in for families, but it's okay for young friends or couples.
