Been here many, many times for over 10 years, and the pizza is always great. You can't beat the tostada Mexican pizza. They cut the pizza in lots of small rectangular pieces, so if you have a large group get a variety and share. Nice atmosphere in an interesting older brick building in downtown Houghton. Great beer selection, and really good service, especially for Houghton!

The Ambassador would be a great pizza place in any city. The fact that it is in out-of-the-way Houghton makes this place even more amazing. The ambiance has a big city feel to it, as it is in an old building with high ceilings with a ton of old wood paneling and a wooden bar. We chose to eat in a cozy booth in the bar. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. And the thin crust pizza was outstanding. The crust was a bit too crisp for my liking, but it was flavorful. The garlic chicken pizza was very tasty, as was the sausage on our other pizza. From reading other reviews, it appears that Houghton doesn't offer a ton of good food. But this pizza place could hold its own in any city.

We love the pizzas here. The BLT pizza and the garlic chicken pizza are great. The setting is cozy and if you get a table in the side room there is a great view of the Portage Canal. Service is usually pretty good.

This place has pretty good pizza but everything else is average. Nice views of the water and fairly fast service.
