“Looked so cool! Very pricey ($22 for a medium pizza?) Service not good.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I read the past few reviews and said "Yeah, they got it right." It looked like it was going to be great. Pizza choices were different.

First, service: our waitress had 3 tables and was flustered. She totally forgot my beer (no problem). Fortunately, the manager(?) saw when our drinks were dry and refilled them.

Second, price: Really? $22 for a medium pizza? Pizza, small salad and ice tea = over $30. Even with good pizza, this will keep us away.

Third, pizza: it was good.

Atmosphere? Cool...

Summary: The service was strangely slow on a nearly empty Tuesday night and the bill was way too high. It's got a cool look so it'll be full when tourists are here, so ... but we won't be back.

“Concept is better than the Food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

A very cool 60's themed pizza resturant was compromised by very bad pizza. What a shame since I really wanted it to be good.

The wait staff was great (as was all service staff we encountered in Gatlinburg) and as I said, the decoration was visually exciting. But the food was bland - and I ordered one of the more spicy on the menu.

Maybe it was a bad cook - or maybe I should have ordered a different pizza. But with so many other choices in the market, I'll never know.

“Definatly will not choose again”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

This place was an over priced pizza joint and the service was awful. There were only 4 parties in there how hard could it be to provide good service on a slow
Night ?

Coming into town late called several pizza places. The MM was open later than others. Didn't know it was a chain. A example of making a big deal of fresh and organic. Pizza was good but not sure it was worth the extra cost.
