Large Party FAQ


We look forward to making your pizza party a great experience. Here are some common questions answered:

The Ballard Ave location has a backroom which can be booked privately for 28 guests seated, or up to 30-35 standing room.

 For Friday and Saturday evening events we have $250 room charge and food/beverage minimum of $750

Sunday evenings past 4pm have food/beverage minimums of $300

Weekend lunches have food/beverage minimums of $300

Monday-Thursday have food/beverage minimums of $150

 These prices do not include local tax or an automatic 20% gratuity that will be applied to all tabs on a large group booking. Weeknight parties must end by 10pm.

 What is the difference between making an online reservation and submitting an event request?

The online reservation system is used just to the make seating of large groups who do not wish to have any private space easier. They are not guaranteed to be sat in any specific area of the restaurant. Online reservations are just like making a reservation at any other restaurant and should not be confused with having a booked event space.

What is your policy for seating large walk-in groups?

If you do not have a party reservation, we will wait to seat your party until enough space has opened up on the main floor, and everyone from your group is present.

Can we bring in our own desserts or wine?

You are welcome to bring a dessert, we just charge a flat $10 plate/cleanup fee. You’re also welcome to order cookies or KRiSPY treats from our pastry kitchen.

$38 for 12 or $72 for 24, minimum one dozen each type of sweet and 48hr notice

Corkage on wine bottles is $25/standard or $45/magnum

 Can we decorate?

Yes! We love seeing a well decorated party! We do have a few rules, if you wish to hang anything on the wall you must do so with painters tape so we will not have to repaint the walls after you leave. You must also take all of your decorations, balloons, boxes, etc with you when you leave. You can also make arrangements with the restaurant to come 30 minutes early to decorate.

How much food do we need?

 Do you have any gluten-free or vegan options?

Though we tried hard to come up with a tasty gluten-free option for pizza, we do not have any gluten-free dough available and we are generally a very gluten-rich environment. Items from our appetizer and salad menus can all be made gluten-sensitive or vegan on request, and we can adjust toppings for dairy free or vegetarian pizzas.

 What are your Audio/Visual options?

The Ballard back room has 2 large HD flat-screen televisions with basic cable, as well as an HD antenna for local station broadcasts, and HDMI plugin for connecting a laptop or tablet to play movies/presentations. We have Sonos speakers in the back room with the ability to choose a music station on our Pandora account.

 We encourage party hosts to pop in ahead of time if you plan to use the plugin, and test your media to ensure it will play.
