A building converted from a water works for the railroad and a firehouse lends a unique atmosphere to good food and good service. Locally owned and run, The Works seeks to highlight community and service. The oven-fired pizza is terrific, and Terri on Tuesdays at the bar makes great cocktails.

We ate at The Works after a late morning trip to a nearby pumpkin patch. We had never been there but heard good things about it. The service was great. Not only our waitress was attentive to our table but the others were as well. We never had an empty drink, dirty plate in from of us, or had to... More

Stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed it. The building is really cool and they even have a train car on the property in which you can eat! Food is very good and location is great in downtown Loveland!

The works is a great place to stop after hiking, biking, or kayaking/canoeing. Obviously the pizza is amazing, I've never had any of their sandwiches but they look good. If you're looking to get an appetizer I recommend the fried Mac n cheese. They also have a pretty good beer selection, mostly local brews

Had my birthday party there, waitress was slow and not altogether. Forgot silverware, seemed put off when we asked for plates for the cake. Food was good. Chicken wings not so great.

I was with a group of five people. Perhaps this experience resulted because we went to a brick oven plice and no got the pizza. Given that it was not very busy, I was surprised that it took so long to receive the food. I was equally surprised when my food did not show up and my wife's order had... More

My boyfriend and I just moved to Loveland and took my parents here when they came to visit. First of all, the building is super-cool, even though we didn't get to eat in the train car. The pizza was delicious (we had the bbq chicken) and served fast. We will definitely be returning to try some more things!

We tried their pizzas and sampled several beers. Good food and drinks. Neat utilization of the original building and train car. Seating both indoors and outdoors. Nice Italian menu.

Good food, great service in an old train station, firehouse. We were seated in the main dining area, a bit noisy. Prices seemed a bit high. I had a steak hoggie that was $ 9.99. Good with lots of fries. Other places you can get the same for about $ 7.99 - $ 8.99, but a little less fries. Others... More

Great spot to take kids. It's an old firehouse, so it's big and airy - noisy, but that's fine for a lunch with three grandchildren, as we had. They have a varied menu (including wine and beer for us adults.) A great gas fire oven puts out some great pizza's, including a wide variety of personal size pizzas. I had... More
