Bar with booths along the wall and around the back of the narrow establishment. Good, old fashioned orange vinyl on the booth. The place was packed full and the service was fast and friendly. The cracker crust on this pizza is to die for! Definitely order the top cheese!

I have been going to the Conpress Pizza for over 50 years and it is absolutely the best Pizza in town. The owner Mike has made many improvements since he purchased the business and continues to try new and different things with great success. It is a great meeting place for all ages during the holidays and the outside patio... More

although the pizza has a regional flair, it is never filling. The prices are a little too high for what you get. Thin crust (sometimes burnt) and not a whole lot of toppings.

Great thin crust pizza. Good selection of toppings. Service is usually fine. This place gets busy so if they're packed it may take a while. Good selection of tap beer. OK small town atmosphere.

With all the hype about how awesome their pizza is, quite frankly I was disappointed. I love thin crust, but this was so bland - like saltine crackers. And the toppings were good, but not enough of them for how much you pay - $2 added per topping. The sauce was ok, but again bland. Service was quick and friendly.... More

I only ate here because of all the great reviews I saw here. There were a lot of negative reviews on Facebook I should have listened to them. The crust almost taste like a cracker, and the sauce is one of the oddest I have ever tasted. Maybe some people have different taste, and that's fine. They seem very popular,... More

Great pizza for those who enjoy thin crust! Many selections to choose from and also served the U.P. classic cudighi. Love the addition of the outdoor patio for the summer.

The best place to meet up with friends and run into so many friendly faces. When you're in the mood to see people, this is where you can go.

Stopped here on tripadvisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. The pizza was great and the service was outstanding. They have a "wall of fame" for local high school sports, which was fun to look at while waiting. Worth a stop!
