We visited here on a Tuesday night. It was trivia night. The atmosphere was lively and the wait staff were very good. All of us really enjoyed the pizza and we will be back

We had not been here for a number of years. We arrived and were told to sit wherever we wanted. After about five minutes another couple arrived and sat in the booth next to us. They received immediate service ordering their beverage followed by their food order. My husband had to go to the bar to order our beverages and... More

This pizza was pretty average, the delivery was nice since I flew in late and did not want to go out in search of food. The pizza special I got was the small one topping, 2 cans of pop, order of cheese bread and then dessert ( I chose brownie). The delivery was about 45 minutes, and the food was... More

Really good pizza. In addition to unique combinations, Leaning Tower usually pays attention to the crust. The Potters is the flagship. Right amount of sauce, sausage, meets and just a hint too much cheese, with celery! Usually a top pizza in Minneapolis, only outdone by Black Sheep in 2015. Enjoy the staple: a Potters!

Another one of those sports bars in the Uptown area that has never invested in upgrading its aging facilities. Restrooms are perpetually dirty and one feels that the dining tables are not that great wither. Food is average at best, but if you are looking just for a bar to drink it's OK. Food is not that great.

I don't understand how this place stays in business. I know they have a good happy hour and a nice location, but the pizza here is basically Walmart quality. I literally felt like I had just been scammed after biting into my giant slice($4) of pepperoni. Domino's, Pizza Hut, and Little Caesars all serve up much better food(at a fraction... More

Two of us went for a late after after a show. We had the chicken wings, we each had a caesar salad, then we shared one of their great pizzas. All were perfect. We probably should have chosen a pizza without jalapenos. They were fine, but after the spicy wings, we should have stuck to the sausage & pepperoni. My... More

When traveling alone for work it's sometimes hard to find a trendy place where you feel comfortable. Leaning Tower of Pizza has it all: Very good ( thin crust ) pizza, very welcoming staff ( Brit was great ), and the best atmosphere( people watching). Plus, I really came for the beer and they have an "intoxicating - hah" selection... More

I love the Leaning Tower! Daily drink specials with 2-4-1s makes this an ideal Friday/Saturday night spot if you want to avoid the Calhoun Square/LynLake crowds. The place is never packed or terribly loud, so you can actually carry on a dinner conversation with your friends/date. I am also please with their delicious, affordable appetizer menu (especially during Happy Hour).

Thank Miranda H
