Located next to the Silver Beach Carousel and Whirlpool Compass Fountain and a short walk from Silver Beach and downtown St. Joseph, this pizza place is popular and often busy with long wait times. The award-winning, thin-crust pizza is tops on the list. They make their own dough every day—fresh from scratch—and mix their own pizza sauce. Families can try a cheese pizza, a specialty pizza or create your own. The kids’ menu offers chicken tenders, mac and cheese and pasta.
The restaurant is situated in a former train station and there’s a large model train inside. An actual train also still runs by the restaurant. (Note: The train tracks are just feet away from the restaurant and there is no fence or barrier blocking the tracks.)
There’s also a Superman booth outside where kids can take photos, and there are containers of pizza dough just waiting to be played with while you wait for your food.
Takeaway pizza is available from an outside, walk-up counter. This is great for those walking from the beach in search of lunch, and the wait time is often shorter at this time of day. It’s best to put your name on the restaurant waitlist ASAP and then depending on the wait time, wander around the Silver Beach area and wait to receive a text when your table is ready.
