The eggplant fries were crunchy and not cooked all the way through. Also they no longer have a cocktail menu.

Always love Pizza Man! BOGO Wednesday is great tho note the gfree crust is is only available in small (it’s good!). The “large” Caesar salad for $11 or $12 is not a good value. I keep getting it because I like it as an app to share but it’s a lot smaller than it used to be. Small issue but noted. Great place and servers.

Spent an evening with life-long friends who we hadn't seen for 10 years-- wait staff were present and discreet recognizing that we simply wanted to visit over salads then pizza. A thoroughly enjoyable evening-

Overall, the food was good. It took a long time for the food to come out and we were with kids. Our server was very attentive, explained the delays, and refilled drinks/asked if we needed anything else. The chef didn’t like how a pizza came out and sent a second pizza, and the first was actually fine. So we were excited to have a second, yummy pizza.

Very friendly attentive service. We had a pizza and picked our own ingredients including provolone and Italian sauce. The crust was very crispy and flavorful. Only complaint is that the ingredients were not spread out evenly. We also had one of the tap wines which was very good. One our favorite places for pizza!

This was our second time coming here and I’m sure we will be back again. The food is great and so are the drinks. We had the Barbecue Chicken Pizza with pan crust and I had the Pomegranate Cucumber Mule. The wait staff are polite and friendly. Our waitress Megan was great.

Service was slow, food came out piping hot - but waitress was nowhere to be found and when she did visit our table, she didn't seem to notice that all of our plates were being taken away full. Too salty. Couldn't get more drinks. We tried for this to be more than a pizza place for us, but I wouldn't order anything but pizza where mediocre service isn't as noticeable.

Sydney was great, and the food was excellent as always. Just wish we had been a tad further from the door, those Arctic blasts with every opening and closing of the entrance weren’t fun!

Our Pizza and salad were both excellent, but wine lovers be warned Pizza Man has changed. We were sad to discover there is now only 4 or 5 red wines available by the glass and all of the are wines that are "on tap". That's right! You have to buy bottles now if you want quality wine. This is total C change. This is an interesting approach pizza man, there are plenty of other great places in MKE with great wine by the glass, sorry to learn you are no longer one of them

Pizza Man continues to be one of our favorites. While I miss the old menu the pizza continues to be tops. My biggest complaint is the serving of salads and apps without serving utensils. It cannot cost that much money to give two larger spoons for a family sized salad or a larger spoon for calamari. No one wants the used fork of their fellow diners poking around throughout their apps. It is unsanitary and it invariably leads to a mess. Please supply serving spoons! Thanks!

Christmas Eve No music playing until we were done with meal. Many tables appeared available on main floor but was seated upstairs as were many elderly people ...were they even told about the elevetor? Otherwise all staff very nice, flow seemed off and be of us did not get asked if they wanted salad first? Delivery person or runner didn’t know to ask?

We had a wonderful gathering with accommodations in the wine room. The noise level was perfect. We could share conversation easily. We appreciate the friendly, very efficient service. We would like to have been informed of the 1/2 off wine bottle offer when seated. Eventually we did get a few bottles to share. Good promotion.
Our friend reunion of 17 was a happy time thanks in part to the pizza Man staff!

One of my pet peeves is when a customer asks the server a question that they don't know the answer to, and the server replies with "I'm not sure"...and it is NOT followed up with "Let me find out for you." I have no problem with someone not knowing the answer to every question a customer has, but the responsibility should not lie on the customer to ask "Can you please find out for me?" My husband and I were at Pizza Man this past weekend and I wanted to get the carrot salad as my side to go with my pasta meal, and the server said they might be able to do this but there would "probably" be an extra charge. I asked how much extra, and she responded saying she didn't know. When she didn't offer to find out, I started looking back at my menu, and finally I (awkwardly) asked her if she could find out about the salad charge. When she came back, she told me they couldn't make the cauliflower salad as a side salad, but that wasn't the salad I was even asking about. I told her that wasn't event the salad I was asking about, but she again didn't offer to find out the correct info for me. At this point, I was frustrated and it was just easier to order something else instead. She seemed fine with this choice and was unapologetic, even though it was obvious I was flustered.

I think Pizza Man is a great place, and this experience won't stop me from going back, but I didn't particularly enjoy the service we received that night. I think this type of nonchalant, laid back attitude is something that doesn't exactly scream "good service." Hopefully this feedback helps Pizza Man train their servers to provide better customer service moving forward.

Always enjoy coming to Pizza Man!! Food is always amazing. On this particular occasion the host was very accommodating! We got a drink at the bar and the bartender was very helpful, friendly and warm. Unfortunately our server was not very inviting or friendly. She seemed as though she did not want to be there. We all could see her standing off to the side with a look of irritation on face.
I will be back again, because I love the pizza there and always have had good service in the past. Just hoping the next time I have one of the better servers again.

They were busy and the noise level was very loud. Our server was nice but we had to remind her twice to get the drinks people at our table ordered. She brought 4 of the z6.

Very disappointed... we were rushed by our server to make our drink and food order, but then we waited way too long time to receive anything. My drink from the bar took 10 minuets (okay) but my sons non alcoholic drink took over 20 minutes to get to the table ... For one pizza and an app we were at the restaurant for almost an hour and a half- and we ordered almost immediately after sitting down.

This is a very nice place, and the food was delicious, but the service we had doesn’t make the price tag worth it.
