“Good salad/service, mediocre pizza”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 via mobile

One of only 3 restaurants in Port Ludlow, this location is somewhat disappointing. We stopped here for Pizza the other day for the first time in a couple of years just to give it another try. The last time we had their pizza - about 18 mos. ago, it was terrible. This time, we both ordered the special - a medium pizza and two individual salads. The salads were very good - fresh greens, tomato, onion and a smidgen of grated cheese - and the service was excellent. The pizza, however, was mediocre - very little sauce, too much crust, not enough cheese or the other ingredients we ordered.

“Needs Improvement”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

To start, there was a large pile of bird poop near the front door. It was nice the nest was left but the vast amount of poop should have been cleaned up. Shows lack of owner pride. I ordered the spaghetti with meat. Mostly noodles couldn't find the meat. The "medium" pizza was the size of "small" in stores. I found on each slice 1/4 of a piece of Canadian bacon and 3 little pineapple chunks with overcooked brown crusty cheese. The cashier was very nice and fairly new. I noted as in prior times, lots of noise and playing around in the kitchen like room of teenage kids. Not run as a serious business. I should have known with large coupon discount offers and high prices ($25.00+ for my pizza and spaghetti order they were trying to make up for low volume. The location is great, if the food were at a high quality business would improve. Perhaps watching a few Chef Ramsey Kitchen Nightmare shows would help. Seriously, this place could do wonders with high quality foods and a superb management staff.

“It's just OK.”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We were staying at the Resort nearby and decided to head out to grab a pizza. We went there with our 2 small children. If you're staying in Port Ludlow, you know the dining options are extremely limited. If you're hungry and not too picky, this place is decent. If you're looking for a delicious, satisfying pizza, you're not going to get it here based on our experience. Our pizza was overbaked so the cheese was all brown on top - not golden with little bubbling bits of brown but ALL BROWN. The kind where you bite into your pizza slice and all the cheese comes off. We ended up having to eat with forks and knives. It was pretty mediocre and even my 7 yr old tossed her second slice to the side when she was halfway done with it because she didn't like it.

“Inconsistent Service and Quality”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I've had good pizza slices and great salads, but there are times they're off their mark. Some of the wait staff is nice, helpful and available ... others seem to be hanging out in the back and the customers just wait and wonder. Nervous about taking friends there, okay with partner and grandkids.

“Perfection Pizza”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We call ahead and order a large pizza to go. They will make it 50/50 so I have my meaty slices and Donna has her veggies. It is really quite good and still hot when we get home.

We also like to go there and order a pasta diner. The best in Jefferson County. Prices are a bit high, but so is the quality.

Highly recommended.
