We decided that pizza would be good for lunch and this was perfect on our way home from WCU. Pizza was the Madonna with grilled chicken and bacon. Was delicious and not greasy. Could have used less garlic, but still delicious. Will go back. Definitely...More

Food is always good - really good. Pizzas are the best - get the Baby Blue - you won't regret it! Yes, they have traditional pizzas, but go for one of the unusual ones. So good!!!!

Had a speciality pizza--it was very good. Daughter had alfredo- the pasta absorbed what little sauce they put on it---bone dry but they did bring out some additional sauce. Italian nachos were a disappointment. Service was sub par

We stumbled upon Fresh after a few locals had recommended it, and we are so glad they did! The moment we walked in, we could smell the garlic! We were quickly seated and had drinks almost immediately. Pizza is something I thought was pretty standard,...More

I agree with Conrad. It is best eaten at the restaurant. The wood oven gives it a taste you want to enjoy immediately on site.
