The Moose has great pizza and a friendly staff. It was a little warm inside the day we were there, so we got our pizza to go.

Split a pizza and a sandwich (which was way too much food!) and both were delicious. The woman working was sooo friendly and helpful when we asked about things to do in the area.

The Big Meaty, the Veggie and the Screaming Moose (worthy of it's name) all excellent choices for a delightful pizza when in the Elk Rapids area. Any leftovers; who doesn't like cold pizza for breakfast once in a while.

My family had 4 large take out pizzas. The pizza tasted bland with little to no sauce. Not impressed at all. Plus it was expensive. There are better pizza options in the Elk Rapids area.

Tasty fresh take out pizza with delicious garlic butter flavored crust. Takes about 25-30 minutes even when they're not busy. Large selection of beer, liquor and soda (pop) in cooler and some on fountain machine. Looks like they have soft ice cream, self serve in season. Old timey penny candy as well as some necessities (toilet paper, diapers, etc) complete... More

Stopped for a snack during harbor days. The staff is super friendly and the food was good. Would go back again.

As first time customers, we ordered a large pizza for delivery and was told it would be delivered in one hour (Super Bowl Sunday). After two hours we called to see where our pizza was. They said there was a pizza sitting there that they didn't know what to do with since they lost the order slip. After waiting another... More

The pizza here is a hidden gem and the service is always very, very good. Most folks may overlook this place because of all the other restaurants and events going on in the area, but they shouldn't. You'll enjoy this small town atmosphere and the service. Don't miss it next time you're in town.

I was concerned about the wait time since other customers had problems. But, we ordered anyways and was told the wait time would be 25 minutes, and sure enough it was ready in 25 minutes. And, we really enjoyed the pizza and thought the quality was superior. I would recommend this place to anyone. Cute, quaint, yes good restaurant!!

We called to place a large take out order on one of Elk's busiest weekends. I understand for a small place this might be quite a challenge however, the staff was anything but nice to us. We asked for the order to be ready in 90 minutes and were told that shouldn't be a problem. As we wrapped up the... More
