This is an iconic resturant. Pizza menu is limited to a handful of options. Unable to special order the thin crust to "crispy." Location was convenient to the RV resort. Mushrooms were in a lump at the center of the pie. Disappointed.

Fricanos is a staple if you are local to the area. They are well known, open only for dinner (5 PM) and there is usually a line out the door. CASH or Check only. No credit cards. Fricanos Grand Haven is a old house in...More

Returned to Grand Haven to visit family and walking in the front door carrying Fricanos pizza made everyone's night! I try to drop in for a pie every visit. It's definitely worth the trip. Remember, only cash or checks accepted...probably helps keep prices down. Enjoy!

I love this business model! One size pizza, four possible toppings, no menus, no checks or credit cards. Just thin, crispy, hot, Italian pizza. Even the building flys in the face of what a restaurant needs to be today. If you are in GH you...More

This place was recommended to us so while on vacation we checked it out. It's very "kitchy". Felt like when I had been to pizza parlors as a kid. Went on a Saturday evening and was surprised to not have to wait. Almost all seats...More

I'm not sure this is the best pizza I have ever had, but to see their process, it is very interesting. We got a table by the kitchen and it was mesmerizing to watch them work. They only have 1 size of pizza, 1 kind...More

Everyone talks about this place but I don't get it. My pizza didn't taste like anything. No seasoning on anything. Don't waste your time!
