“Excellent Pizza and Delicious Appetizers”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

My husband and I were in Dubuque for the weekend and had no idea where to go to dinner. A quick search of Trip Advisor and we were off to Crust. Note--after 5:00 p.m. on the weekends the parking is free in the lot behind the restaurant.

Ordered pizza and a salad and we got the delicious appetizer (bread/dough balls & sauce) free. Yummy! A glass of chardonnay was $7.00 which seemed a tad high for Dubuque but it was a large pour so I can't complain. The pizza was amazing and unfortunately when we brought it back to the hotel it did not fit in our mini refrigerator so we had to throw it away. So Tragic!!

We would definitely go back if we are in the area again! Great food and great service!!

“Liked Crust a lot”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We walked here across the street from our hotel and were happy with our choice for dinner. The basket of "dough bites" (don't know what their real name is!) dusted with Parmesan and with dipping sauce was an unexpected treat. We didn't have pizza but did enjoy the wraps we had--they were well-prepared & filling. Waitress was friendly. Was nice to look out on downtown while we ate.

“Poor Service and Food Quality”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I've tried this restaurant many times and it never seems to improve. More than anything I have a problem with the food. For the price and atmosphere it really should be much better than it is. Even though this place does have a great atmosphere it isn't worth the poor food.

Very quick and economical. Needed gluten free and they accommodated request with penne pasta. Delicious and plentiful. So much that leftovers were lunch the following day!

“Crust for pizza & Itialian”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Crust is a "must stop" when traveling thru Dubuque, the bread bite appetizers ( free) are so good, you have to make an effort to stop eating them, or be too full to eat dinner. The specialty pies are great, I usually get the "mean green" but others are great too. They will do half & half pies if you ask, so ask! Affordable menu & drink prices, and great food.
