Very overpriced and totally unimaginative. Customer service lacked and the place seemed to be staffed with the wrong selection of employees. This restaurant has 'Gone Out of Business"- thank goodness. It was a TRAP.

This restaurant didn't last 2 years. It is now gone out of business. There are 2 pizza joints nearby, Boothbay pizza at the mall next to the cinema and one on the pier.

They only offer 2 sizes, 6 and 12 inches. My husband, a big eater, was hesitant to share the 12 inch with me. We ordered the meat lovers and we had more than enough. The toppings are fresh and delicious! The crust is thin and...More
