I've been here before and have brought friends here when I'm the area. Always a hit. Good quality and tasty. Service is friendly and professional, and for some that come more regularly, you might even get to know the owners and staff personally. Location is convenient and windows look out to the lake across the street.

Had pizza here last night, location great, service great, and the pizza was fine. The crust was cooked well and the cheese was of excellent quality but the sauce on the pizza was not my favorite. I personally prefer a sauce with more basil and garlic notes. I felt it also needed a tad more salt...perhaps some garlic salt on... More

Best pizza (New York style) on Deep Creek Lake. Dining room overlooks the Lake. The pizza starts with homemade crust and marinara. From there the sky is the limit. Standard Italian specialties as well as a full panoply of salads. Monday night pizzas are half priced in the winter. Great bargain!

After living on Long Island for 30 years and learning to appreciate New York Style Pizza, we were delighted to discover Brenda's Pizzeria at Deep Creek Lake when we retired here. We enjoy Brenda's pizza selection (she's originally from the Bronx) immensely and her other entrees and desserts are delicious, as well. She has a knack for hiring exceptional staff... More

Not only is this best pizza but great Italian food. You eat while you can look out on lake the Italian candies ( which you can purchase) you get for dessert are great!

We've gone to Brenda's for a long time ... even before it was Brenda's. We usually stay away during the summer months due to the tourists but love going in the off season when it's less crowded. Pizzas are fantastic! Plus all the other Italian specialties sandwiches and pasta dishes. The food is always good here and the service is... More

We ordered three of Brenda's pizzas tonight and loved them all. We ordered a 20 inch and 2-26 inch pizzas and it was plenty with A lot of extra for later! Where to begin! The crust was the best, chewy and the perfect consistency of done but not over cooked. The toppings were generous and you could tell they were... More

I have to say I was reluctant to order a $26 medium pizza. Wow! I would pay double that and smile after eating it

This is a great restaurant over looking the beautiful Deep Creek Lake. Been there many times and it never fails to disappoint. If I lived closer, I'd be a regular.
