We loved the view of the river and bridge. The troll paintings and back story were super cool! Pizza was average, good beer selection. Caesar salad was awesome! No complaints.

We had the vegetarian pizza two times during our stay in Houghton. We did carry-out at the Keewenah Brewery and ate in for lunch another time. The Italian Wedding soup is spectacular. We had a great meal.

We stopped in to order some pizza to go and each ordered a beer and some nachos while we waited. Service was...interesting. It started off welcoming and accommodating, then it seemed as if we were an inconvenience. Despite ordering drinks and an appetizer while we...More

You must try the lobster pizza, it was delicious. I also ordered a fish bowl drink that was very cold and refreshing. Love coming to town and eating here.
