Great salad bar with fresh ingredients that were nicely chopped. The dressing I had was out of this world. The buffet had tasty pizza with paper thin crust. My meal hit the spot.

They have a small buffet, the food was fresh and pretty good. We ordered a couple pizzas, those were pretty good as well. They do serve alcohol here and even have a nice little bar in the back. The service was good as well and the food was inexpensive. I would bring the family here again.

We ordered the supreme which comes w double sausage and double mushroom. We don't normally overload our pizza's like this but we heard/read great reviews on this place - why not try their specialty? Here is a key thing to realize - this pizza takes 50 minutes to cook and our waitress kindly warned u. So we added a trip... More

Stopped in with a friend today for the lunch buffet while in Oshkosh for business. Have to say I always wanted to try this place and I regret waiting so long to go. My first impression stepping in from the subzero cold outside, was the great aroma of a real pizzaria. The staff welcomed us like old friends and was... More

This was such a surprise! The pizza here is handmade and really tasty. It's a lot healthier than some of the other pizza places (e.g. Pizza Ranch). The salad bar is fantastic - so much choice, loads of healthy and fresh items. The soups are also really tasty - my favorite is the stuffed pepper soup. Then there's the price... More

This was one of the places to come up on my GPS while I was in Oshkosh. We thought we'd give it a try & were greeted promptly & seated at a table. They have Sundrop soda as well as other locally produced beverages. The kitchen is visible from the eating area at the back of the restaurant with the... More

Up from Florida visiting family and found this place by chance... Took a little while but was so worth the wait!! We were all extremely impressed with the quality of the pizza and the staff were so great. You will not be disappointed.

One of the freshest salad bars consistently. It's fun because they have pizza toppings on the salad bar. The stuffed green pepper soup is excellent and I don't even like green peppers. The pizza is always great and they always have good specials.

As a family from the Chicago area we consider ourselves to be pizza snobs. The vast majority of pizza shops outside a 50-mile radius from Chicago make pretty poor pizza. That's not the case here! While on a long weekend in Oshkosh, I was reluctant to go because of the name, but I am glad we ended up here. We... More
