experience was good, pizza was tasty. Stopped in for a Saturday afternoon bite and the place was definitely buzzing - families, small groups, individuals, etc...

Bone crusher pizza rocks as well as monthly specialty pizzas as well as the Roni roll. Root beer floats for the kids. Not a lot of beer choices but just enough.

The pizza is good here. Atmosphere is realky neat. It seems a little more boutique type pizza with cute names & speciality ingredients. The sweet sausage was very spicy. It was good pizza, not my favorite pizza place though.

Amazing pizza! We make this trip once a year and the restaurant has doubled in size since last year. It's busy all the time and the service is slow, but it's worth the wait.

Came here with a school group around 20 people. Ordering was fine, food was good - but we never could get a "fork". We just needed utensils - that's all we lacked. When we placed our 1 big order of pizzas and salads and drinks,...More

Good morning, and sorry for the delayed reply. I wanted to write you, as the owner (along with my wife) and apologize. We do continue to work in the store frequently but, as I'm sure you can imagine, cannot be there all the time so...More
