The pizza here is so flavorful my husband and I went back the next day. It is off the beaten path from the tourists which is nice. It has a great outdoor patio with a nice view of the lake. The beer is superb too! Definitely go for a visit!

This is a unique pizza place, very casual, reasonably priced.and they have varied pizza selections and beer! There is indoor seating and a covered outdoor seating area. The night we were there, there were 2 guitar players who were fantastic! A great find in Traverse City. The pizza was delicious and our service was great, friendly and responsive.

Had lunch here with family, during recent visit to Traverse City. If I lived in the area, this restaurant would definitely become a favorite. Had a difficult time making a decision on which
beer and pizza (wide selection of both) to order, but staff was very patient and graciously offered advice and free tastes of several beers. Price is reasonable and atmosphere comfortable. Worth the short drive if you are staying in downtown area. Only disappointment was that we didn't make it back there during the rest of our stay.

We loved the location of this restaurant, in an old train station by a lake with beautiful views. The beer was excellent, we tried a flight and we not disappointed, in fact, we ate there twice in three days. The pizzas are very thin and cooked in a wood-fired oven, perfectly made to order. One night they had live music, which was fun.

Very impressed with the beers they brew. About 15 selections on tap, tried 6 and they all were from very good to excellent! Food choice is quite limited. It is italian type pizza. They call it flatbread, very thin crust and a bit of toppings. Not your american pizza pie. Very tasty!
Disappointing was their "service". You have to pay for your order at the entrance, grab a number flag, then sit and wait for your food. If you want another beer or more food, you have to leave your table and go to the register, and order. This annoying routine gets additionally messed up by random "waiters" who pick up your glasses, dishes, and number flags, not having any idea if you just finishing your last beer, or still waiting on your food... They really need to organize this thing...
