Pizza Plant has always been a great place. Food is good, itís one of the few places in Buffalo where you can get cask beer regularly & there are always interesting things on tap. Probably the most family friendly beer-related place in the Buffalo area.

The better of the two Pizza Plants in my opinion. Food is the same at both locations, pretty good quality and generous portions at reasonable prices. Beer list usually features about 6 or 7 beers on tap. All taps are quality stuff, ranging from local favorites to micros that can be found no where else in the area. In my opinion the best bar for a ratebeerian in the Buffalo area.
A: The bar area can hold about 18-20 people plus table seating around it. There is craft brewers decor around the area. Not a total craft beer nerd haven as it caters to their food patrons primarily.
Q: The beer quality is decent as the beers are served at proper carbonation and very few macros.
S: Decent service, some bartenders know their stuff and some go through the motions of whatever they have been told to say.
S: The beer selection is decent as they get some beers that you dont typically see anywhere else in WNY, but they also have some common and local stuff on tap too. 30 taps from a wide variety including a cask tap too.
F: The food is decent but nothing you really would go out of your way for.
Value: They ride the line between pricey and expensive on all of their beer selections. Something that can be had elsewhere locally is typically a buck of two more and they have a other beers where they not only over charge for but serve at smaller sizes.
Overall, I go to Pizza Plant once in a while to see if they have anything different on tap but there are better selections (and cheaper in cost) not far away.
Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday, it was pretty quite. Service was friendly enough, but not entirely sure who made some of the beers - they offered a peak at their cheat sheet instead. (It was on the board I eventually figured out). Food was decent, I think I will lean towards making my own pod on future visits as I wasnít thrilled with mine, Mabels was better. Atmosphere is similar to Main St. with an Italian pizza place with a splash of sports bar vibe. Decent tap selections, nothing super rare but a serviceable selection of US micro brews. Less convenient than the Main St. location I think. Beer was served too icy cold, which I seem to recall was a problem at Main St, and many US locations actually.
Went for lunch, same menue as the Main St. location. Not nearly the beer selection the Main st has , food is a little better too, and service was some what slow. Still, I will go there and recomed it to others But will go to the Main ST. location if given the choice
Visited on a quiet midday Sunday last May, we sat down in a booth and nursed a couple new ratings while eating yummy pods/panzerottis. Tasty food, friendly service, fair selection of brews all combined for a pleasant experience. Would be a good local pub, depending on how often they rotate their selection, but solid regardless.
A quiet afternoon. The decor and menu are busy, but not the restaurant. Decent tap and bottle selection. Nothing that would blow you away though. Service isnít speedy. Everyoneís food was well received.
Like those before me, this location is better basically because there is a hell of a lot more room to move and is not so crowded. Taps are rotating constantly with hard to find beers. I like how they tell you what will be up on tap next as well. I wasnt too impressed with the food, personally.
Nice pizza joint with excellent beer choices. Usually quiet busy spot , family friendly. Good stop when hungry with kids and you wish to have some solid pint.

For my money, the better of the two Pizza Plants. This is because the bar is a totally seperate room from the restaurant. It's bigger, too. Foodwise, same salty, greasy, filling fare. Beerwise, same mix of good micros and rare good micros.
