We eat here every year when we have our conference. Their food is excellent! Since we are there during the conference, it can be very crowded, but I feel they handle the crowd well and the wait is never too long.

Love to eat here when we are at Lakeside. They have a large variety of specialty pizzas. I recommend the Home Fry Pizza...ranch dressing, bacon, cheese, and french fries. Yummy, yummy carb overload. I also had the meatball pizza, it was very good. The walls used to be covered with sports memorabilia, but they have yet to replace them after... More

The restaurant has been remodeled since a small fire last year. The entire interior was stripped of all the sports memorabilia that includes pennants, newspaper clippings, jerseys, etc. The pizza is still king, remaining consistent since we first ate here years ago. The burger had a nice char, generous blue cheese crumbles but was overcooked for my taste. However, I... More

It may not be big on ambiance, but the menu at Sloopy's offers a nice variety of pizza options, pasta, and sandwiches. We were disappointed that the lasagna was not available, but we very much enjoyed the meatball rigatoni, as well as the Mexican pizza. We would definitely dine there again--in fact, we went twice during the course of an... More

When I was there in June they were just rebuilding and recovering from a fire. Their menu was limited but they expected to be back up to full force within two weeks of my visit. This is excellent award winning pizza. Everything that we have eaten at this restaurant has always been excellent. The staff is very friendly. If you... More

Although the pizza was good, and service was prompt, we were rushed by a young server who did not seem to want to be there. Add to it a family with a screaming child (restaurant just ignored this), and the font door right behind which employees and guests (for the most part) allowed to loudly slam shut, and the experience...

Sloopy's caught fire in early 2016 and was given a fresh new interior, so everything was clean and bright. Things seemed to be a bit more organized overall too. Instead of eating in, I called for takeout service and ordered a 7 inch personal pan pizza, for just under $5.00 I was able to pick up my pizza in 30... More

We love stopping at this place when we visit our family's lakehouse. The hibachi pizza is great, complete with yum yum sauce. The cheesy breadsticks are a crowd pleaser too. I love trying unique things, this place definitely has some creative options!

We had never heard of Sloopy's. We were in the mood for an adventure and just went where our restaurant finder said we were near. We followed our GPS and were quite surprised to run end up at a gate for Lakeside. The very polite guy at the gate told us there wasn't parking and we should go up and... More
