We had half taco pizza and half pepperoni pizza. The pizza was good. Definitely tastes better than a frozen pizza like the other reviews. You order your pizza at the counter and wait for them call your number. We were here during lunch. I think...More

Our two take out orders were hardly edible. The garden salad with chicken was so bad we fed the extra dry chicken to our dog, who barely ate it. The meatball sandwich was more like a ground beef sandwich. Hopefully the pizza is much better...More

Food was quick, tasty and all the staff was friendly. Great prices and quick food delivery. This is a seat-yourself, order-at-the-counter style spot that's great for families with kids as well as adults out for a night. Pizza was awesome as was their fettuccini Alfredo!

Pizza tasted like a Jiffy crust mix. Salad greens were brown and wilty. No napkins on any tables. Seems like they were more concerned with deliveries instead of people dining in.

The waitress was very nice and helpful There were a couple of nice beers on tap that I was happy to try. However, the pizza was average at best.

Seems like everything changes but the Shot Tower Inn. I've been coming here since the 1980's. Love the food. great pizza and sandwiches. Plenty of other food, too. Try the pizza. Classy traditional pizza place that servers a lot more. Parking is easy. Good place.

Out of towners here, family of 7. Nice waitress, totally acceptable wait time for food, and the upstairs was a spacious, rustic area for our whole brood to hang out. Main level bartender didn't exactly go out of her way to be nice...appeared to tolerate...More
