Outside of parking issues, this place is historically good. Pizza's are outstanding, take out is quick, and beer is cold.

If you've never tried the Flying Tomato pizza you don't know what you are missing! Normally I prefer a deep dish but the FT pizza is somewhere in between a thin and thick crust. This is the second best pizza I've ever had. If you are in the Iowa City area it's a must do as far as places to... More

Great service, varied menu, and all of our food: lasagna, fried ravioli and salad were all great. Lunch stop and were in and out quickly.

Our family visit Wig and Pen for a holiday celebration. We were pleased and surprised at the quality of their deep dish pizza; wow, definitely worth the trip:)

Such a fun pub to grab a wonderful pizza (three options of crust thickness) and a beer. You can easily walk to the game (parking was 10.00 if you so choose to do this). The bar tenders were beyond busy and yet they were great. Our server was on top of it. It is cozy and has a great "all... More

Not sure what happened! Our “Wig and Pen” big size pizza was not crispy or cheesy. It was just a thick, soft, full of flour taste pizza. It was the worst pizza we have ever had! Will not go back!

I would say the pizza and the onion rings were the best. Great for a quite meal in an atmosphere that is unique for the area.

We had the taco pizza with the specialty crust and it was so good! A little bit on the cheesy side, but one of the best taco pizzas I've had. It was super crowded when we were there, but we were able to eat at the bar and service was great.

Fantastic atmosphere based on a London pub. We ordered half order of the onion rings on review suggestion. Fabulous homemade rings! Thin cut lightly breaded. See pic. Ordered pizza with Canadian bacon, homemade sausage, and kraut. You won't find better than the thin crust baked on the stone brick oven. Great stringy cheese on the pizza, don't need extra cheese....
