I agree! Alot of thugs work there, I don't want a bunch of druggies that hang out at the stonewall handling my food. The smell is from the dirt bags that hang out and work there!

I've enjoyed it ever time I have been there. Their pizza is great as are their oysters which are the items I've had the times I've been. Their beer selection is really nice as well, nice mix.

How would you know the beer selection is good? The damn girl behind the bar acted put out as hell to wait on me when I was there, oh, an they were out of oysters. Who needs the hassle of trying to patronize an establishment like this anyway, obviously they dont give a care..........

I went there the first week they were open and the pizza I had was DISGUSTING. I've literally had better frozen pizzas. Granted, I've heard lots of good things from friends since then and I would like to give it another try. The pizza was so horrid tho that it's hard for me to bring myself to go in there again. Maybe it was a rocky start?

I looked at the taps.

I will agree with earlier posters that it really smelled like wood smoke in there early on. They did upgrade the exhaust system I believe and it helped a great deal. You can however smell the burning wood as they have the pizza oven and a wood fired grill going at all times.

This thread must have been started by a jealous restaurant owner who isn't doing as well as Backyard. The food is good. Fresh dough is made a couple times a day. Of course the place smells a tad like smoke, there's a wood fired oven! If you have bad service let Drew or Ollie know, they WILL fix it! The bunch is awesome. When a restaurant has lines out the door every weekend other places in town notice and try to start crap. Typical Huntington! Green with envy!

Drew don't own spit, he is a novice and this place will fold. 100% guaranteed, you can't have an attitude, run out of spit, have brasshole waitresses and bartenders, your mom up ur tailpipe and $30.00 pizza that has unmelted cheese on top. Done, they are already gone, u heard it here first.

There's not a $30 pizza on the menu. You get what you pay for, if you want reheated garbage because you're a cheap D-bag then go to Little Caesar's. The place is packed all the time. They've expanded the hours and added more menu items. Jealousy, plain and simple.

Evidently paws opened a pizza joint thinking people are gonna pay premium price for a crap pizza. If i wanna pay 20bucks for a pizza I will drive to Evaroni's, at least it is good. If that makes me a douchebag then i am a m a douchebag, but your place and your pizza still suck and you are going under, lmao I am a douchebag but you are a broke douchebag paws, guaranteed!!

Just because something there says "wood oven pizza" doesn't mean people have to automatically like it. It does have a nice beer selection though. But it will be out of business in 12 months, probably.
