This has to be one of the best "take out" Pizzas in town. There are about 4 different places in Saugatuck Douglas to get pizza, so you have to be pretty darn good to make it as long as they have.

We stumbled upon this pizza place while exploring Douglas. We dropped in to order a pizza, and we're somewhat surprised by how small the place was. There was one table and it was full of another party. When we approached the counter, they seemed taken...More

As the kids would say "It's The Bomb!" The perfect place for a Grab-N-Go which I often like as what I save on tips nearly covers the meal. Economics aside it's great pizza and good people. Eating patio outside which is awesome in the summer....More

Nice place and staff very accommodating. Pizza just okay, crust soggy. Had a cheese and sausage pizza, chicken pesto-had a lot going on and tasty but soggy crust, the Douglas social was good added goat cheese but again soggy crust. In a pinch worth it.

I'd advise a meal here, the local fave for pizza I'm told. Great classics like stuffed cabbage and solid salad options made it a winner for all in my group. Perfect patio, and Bowling!!! Very 1950's vibe. Great Service.

FYI - This is a review for "Alley's" just up the road from us here in Douglas.
