“Worth going again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We went to this (apparently very) popular pizza place on a Saturday night while on vacation with friends. The pizza was more expensive than chain pizzerias, but that is because it was so much better. They had a wide variety of pizzas with red, white, and pesto sauces. Even a humdrum pizza with sausage and peppers was really amazing and tasted very fresh.

I'm giving this a four because logistics were a little challenging for a large group (2 families/6 children). We called ahead but they don't accept reservations. When we hit there, we had a 45 minute wait. We ended up carrying out. But the pizza was great!

“Big tasty pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Enjoyed the thin crust pizza and the service was great. Plenty of non choices on the menu but we didn't try anything except side salads.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

We found this place through Trip Advisor. We went with the pizza, and it was good, but not great. I found the tomato sauce a bit bland, or they just skimped on it. Other than that, it was a great experience. Great service, not too long of a wait, and reasonably priced. We'd go back if in the area.

“good meal”

Arrived for an early dinner. Brenda's was well decorated and had great view of Deep Creek Lake. Meal was great with good value. When leaving the line of people waiting confirmed my impression.

“Eggplant Parmigiano Hero and Ultimate Meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Was busy when we went during the Savage Man but didn't have to wait long. Knew we were in a good place when we were greeted by the aroma. Wonderful view of the Deep Creek. Enjoyed my hero and chips but then I over did it by also sharing too much of the pizza.
