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.

We took the food to go. We tried the sausage bits appetizer and ordered a pizza. Very tasty food. Staff was super friendly and picking up the food was easy. Would definitely recommend Brenda's.

The two of us ate dinner in Brenda's Pizzeria twice within a two week period. We both think the pizza and other Italian food was and is excellent. The first time we went the restaurant was very busy.

I stopped in on a blustery, cold, rainy/snowy day with three friends. We ordered a large pizza. First off, the taste was a bit different. I don't know what is was but is was very good! And the slices are straight out of New York City. One slice will fill you up. The wait staff was attentive, the prices were... More

Stopped here for late lunch on the way back from Swallow Falls. Had one of the lunch specials and sat at a table overlooking the lake. The pizza was VERY tasty. Also good Md crab soup. Pizzas are large with generous toppings.

This is a nice casual Italian restaurant and seems very popular. The food was good and plentiful and our server very pleasant - but it took quite some time to get seated even with numerous tables open. They could use additional staff to manage the flow of people.

We were looking for a light lunch, and preferably not at a chain restaurant. We were quickly seated at a window table overlooking the lake, and service was prompt and friendly. We each ordered 2 slices, with various toppings. The pizza was hot and tasty, and Ill be having some of mine for lunch tomorrow! We'll definitely be going back.
