Went here after Keeneland or the Lexington-Frankfort part of the Bourbon Trail, I can’t remember which, and forgot to rate it. Pretty standard pizza joint from the front and entrance, but there are a couple rooms and patios you might not notice, so it’s a big place. Pizza is pretty good, nothing amazing. The tap list is impressive- 38 listed here, but I counted 42. Over 100 bottles for sure, and a nice range, from the cheap swill for UK students to some unexpected micros. Three Floyds is now here- Dreadnaught bottles and Robert the Bruce on tap as of this writing- along with the standards: Stone, DFH, Goose Island, Great Divide, Abita, Avery, Founders (Cerise!), Rogue, Left Hand, Brooklyn, Breckenridge, Nogne O, Schneider, Ayinger, Unibroue, Sam Smith, Fuller’s, Chimay, Duvel, BBC, and Lexington-Alltech (Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale). Friendly staff, good service, good prices. Definitely worth a visit when you’re in Lexington.

We were looking forward to this, given the reviews. It’s not all that great. The food, while cheap, was also CHEAP (quality and price). Maybe, being so close to the university, they can scrimp on quality and not lose their clientele. The beer selection was good, very good, and not being from Kentucky and therefore not used to the lower tax environment, it seemed that the beer was a good value for its price. But the food was pretty pedestrian (my pizza was uninspiring--no, strike that, it inspired me to stop eating it.) While friendly, I can’t say it holds a candle to many of the other good beer and pizza places in the USA. Those who gave it a good rating have to get out more.

Nice place, with full bar, pub style upstairs and patio. Service was fast, but not so knowledgeable. My friend and I received tumblers for drinks that should have snifters and tulips. Still, I have heard this is not typical, but the inconsistency is noted. Solid beer selection, but nothing too exotic. I could find most of their beers at the local Liquor Barn for cheaper. Got a HUGE slice of pizza for around two dollars, with a large variety of toppings. It was pretty good, but nothing to call home about. You would think a "world class" PIZZA pub would have better pizza. Bottles were a little high at times (especially imports). Overrated.

Easy to find location and easy parking for my motorcycle. Larger then the outside looks. Two patios and bar in front and pub downstairs and tables upstairs for pizza. Good staff that were freindly and recommended beers and pizza. Had a SN Brown and slice of pizza. Nice selection of beers. Good location.

If you want to find any selection of beers in Lexington, this is the place. The setting is diverse: traditional pub downstairs, pizza parlor upstairs, and a newly added lounge and patio. No one person’s taste in pizza (or beer for that matter) is the same. But it is good food. In a medium sized college town, where light beer is championed, Pazzo’s is tough to beat.

We came to Lexington during Ryder Cup week and took a shot at this place based on the Ratebeer website. What an absolute gem! We were in town 2 nights, and went on both nights The pizza was fabulous and the beer selection was outstanding! Live outside Cincy, and there is no place near us that has this kind of selection! We’re trying to find out what excuses we can come up with to go to Lexington just so we can go back.

The main attraction is the wednesday night pint nite. It’s so popular, however, you’ll probably have to wait awhile to get a table. If you’ve got a large group, forgot it! Good selection of beers, pizza and calzone’s are good. Save your receipt for the parking lot or the attendent will hastle you.

This is my favorite place in Lexington and with the large bourbon room and double patio that opened in October, it could possibly be the best bar and grill in Kentucky! Think about it...massive beer selection, flat screens everywhere for sports, outstanding pizza, perfect location just blocks from downtown, and a super friendly staff! This place is at the top of my list!

Fun place. I really liked the glass ware displays. Plenty of room, lots of TV’s, and a great tap/bottle selection. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable bar tenders. I enjoyed my veggie-pizza and the calzone was excellent. I’d go back.

What makes this place impressive is, again, location. Lexington, Kentucky is simply not known for a mecca of world renown beer. To have so many wonderful choices and see the attention to detail that offering matching glass ware for each kind of beer you might want, well, that’s pretty remarkable for a town that sells more bud light and miller lite than anything else. I’m just amazed that it’s on the campus of the University of Kentucky. I went to college here and I couldnt’ afford 6.00 a pint abbey ales! More power to ’em.

This is a great place to get beer in Lexington. I have never had a problem with finding something on tap that I wanted to try. They have some rotating taps that are switched out at a fairly reasonable rate. The wait staff is attentive and always makes sure that your glass is full. It can get very busy during pint night so get there at least at 5:30 to make sure you don’t have to wait 2 hours to get a seat. Speaking of pint night this is a pretty great deal. How can two souvenir glasses and a pitcher of beer be bad?
