I need to stop hating on the greasy, and yet somehow flakiest ever pizza places. They might as well sell hot pockets here. They do the same thing to your stomach. You're welcome.

Pizza Plus needs to do a better job cleaning tables and the floors.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Pizza was great! However, do not get the caprese salad.

I live a few blocks from here so we frequent this place. The staff is very friendly and the beer selection is good.

“Great Cheese Curds”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We spent a couple hours during happy hour and tried some appetizers and pizza with our tap beer. They have a good selection of beers, but I usually chose Spotted Cow or any New Glarius brew. The beer was excellent. The cheese curds were the best I have ever had. They were big and solid. They offer Glutin Free Pizza which is a great thing. The regular pizza was good but nothing to get too excited about. Years ago their pizza was better. The name is now The Plus even though you usually need to look for Pizza Plus to find it on the web or phone book. Our waitress who had been there for a month was great. Very helpful and attentive to our needs. There were 5 of us in our group. They have happy hour from 3 to 6 and from 9 til midnight with great beer prices!

“Not the Pizza Plus you remember”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

After going through a renovation, this is not the Pizza Plus (Bottle and Barrel) that you remember. The food is different and the beer is better at a price increase. I am not a huge fan of the food. I feel they are trying to hard to be "artisan" when they need to find meals that work first. It is over priced. The beer selection is good and understandably more expensive.

“Food was delish, waitress was awesome”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

My sister and I came to visit our younger cousin in Eau Claire and decided to go out for pizza. We got there are 5:30 for dinner and were happy to find out that we still had time to squeeze our app and drink orders and get the happy hour special. (Who does happy hour on a Friday? That's amazing!).

We got an order of the Bontons and Italian Nachos for apps and the German pizza (deep dish) and Chicken Smoked Gouda for dinner. For the 3 of us, it was a ton of food and ended up having half of a pizza leftover. Everything was good, but the German pizza blew my mind. It was the item I had the lowest expectations for and it's my favorite thing from dinner that night. Between the 3 of us, we each spent approximately $15 on drinks, apps and pizza.

Not to mention, Kathy, our waitress, was awesome. Great sense of humor, our drinks were never empty and she was happy to give recommendations when we asked for them.

Great experience and can't wait to go back to try out some other specialty pizzas.
