We stopped in for the first time for lunch on a Sunday and ate at a high top in the bar area. Our friendly and efficient waitress was Katie. She was very warm and welcoming, and came back frequently to check on us and to let us know the status of the pizza (i.e. it should be out in just... More

Know several people who like their pizza so we decided to give it a try. Ugh. They are very generous with their toppings, but the crust was like eating cardboard. Maybe we are spoiled being from Wisconsin and have very good pizza, but i don't understand why anyone would spend $25 for a veggie pizza that tastes this bad. Would... More

We've been going here for This place really is the best for pizza and atmosphere. The bar and the tables around it can get a little loud (especially during sporting events) but it's all part of the joy of Kaiser's. Marsha the bartender is the best, and all the staff are friendly and helpful.

Not much seating available. ventilation and temperature in the space was poor. Slow service. reasonable prices, very good pizza. We would do take out from there but will not eat in again.

Kaiser's Gurnee is small but the pizza is worth the wait!! We love their thin crust pizza. The BLT pizza is a favorite as well. Our out of town guests love Kaiser's as well and make a point of scheduling a dinner here when they are in town!

For my taste, best thin crust I can find. The pizza is consistently outstanding. My go to pie is cheese and sausage, extra sauce, baked well done. I go on Monday nights for 1/2 price thin crust pies. Get there by six to beat the rush....You're welcome.

We love this small pizza place. Friendly staff and great little bar. Their thin crust pizza is awesome. We usually have a side salad, a beer and a pizza and it is very inexpensive; in fact some people might say cheap, but delicious.

One of the top three pizza places in Lake County. It is really good! Try the Kaisers special and add pepperoni and black olives. They also have various sandwiches and appetizers. It's not very charming and is loud. Service pretty good. Right off US-41.

I absolutely love Kaiser's thin crust pizza. It is so crispy and delicious! The sauce is not too sweet and toppings are always very generous too! Top it off with a gourmet cupcake and you are ready to go!

Ordered thin crust pizza, beer nuggets and a dinner salad ... service, wait time and atmosphere were the highlights of the visit. As Cubs fans we were glad the game was turned on, but if you were watching the end of the football game you wouldn't have been happy when it was promptly turned off at a tied game in... More
