Stopped in here on opening day to check this new place out. I don't know why, but I thought this place was going to be a bit bigger than it really is. Upon entering you notice the bar area with all the pizza's laid out and the menu's / draft boards hanging on the wall. The space is a little on the small side but it still has plenty of tables and area's to sit and enjoy your pizza and beer. They don't have any TV's or anything like that, just some music playing for background noise.

As far as the quality goes, all of my beers were served in the correct glasses and the pizza toppings were top notch. They had some nice artwork hanging on the walls to help spruce the place up. The service was pretty good. They seemed to have a pretty good knowledge of the beers they were serving but you could still tell it was opening day. Some of the beers, most notable the nitro breakfast stout, took quite a bit of time to pour, almost five minutes for mine. They also could have cut their line in half if they took the time to ask if anyone was just getting another beer. Instead, you had to wait in the same line with the people looking to eat, thus making the line quite long at times. Once they get some of this stuff ironed out I am sure it will be much better.

The beer selection was pretty good. They have six draft lines running plenty of quality offerings and even more bottles, from all over the world. From belgians to Alesmith Speedway Stout to the local favorites from Troegs and Stoudts. They even have a whole section of the cooler dedicated to just CANs. As far as the prices go, they are a bit high. $9 for a bomber of Troegs Perpetual IPA? I love that beer but that is not gonna happen. $3 for a slice for pizza isn't too bad in my book, mostly because of the ingredients used, but I can see why some people might not want to pay that much. That doesn't mean the pizza isn't worth it tho, because it absolutely is. I got two slices; one was prosciutto, figs, provolone, and beet greens and the other was sausage, tomato, peppers, and fontina cheese; and they were both excellent. I also wanted to try the pesto and pistachio but I was just too stuffed at that point.

Overall, I look forward to seeing how this place grows and changes in the future. I enjoyed my first visit quite a bit and I will stop in again for sure. If you are in the area I would stop by and check it out.

Outstanding selection of bottles at reasonable prices. Food looked good but I had just had lunch. It's a half block from the office so I'll definitely be back!

I live about 15 minutes from here and, being a seaon ticket holder for the local baseball team which is across the street from The Fridge, I'm here fairly often during baseball season. There's always something good on tap and there's a great selection of bottles and cans to choose from, too. The prices are a bit steep compared to other bottle shops I've visited and the food is ok but service is very good and the atmosphere is always interesting. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

This is now a staple in Lancaster, and it is a good place to go. We enjoy it occasionally, although it is a little small. The food is always interesting, and the bottle selection is outstanding. The staff is friendly and engaging, and it is definitely worth a visit.

This is the place to go during the summer, fall, winter, or spring because you feel like it's the perfect place no matter what time of the year. I love going to the Fridge in the Fall and winter because of their little coal stove that sits in the back side of the room and the comfy couches and seats that surround it.

I love the pizza when it's freshly made with all natural and organic ingredients. They're so creative and imaginative with their concoctions.

The tap list can be quite impressive at times and sometimes they can get some rare stuff or something great that you can't get anywhere else in the area.

Check out their bottle selection in the fridge and on the opposite wall where near the entrance, I'm sure you'll find a bottle that will sooth the soul.

My favorite thing about this place is that they have a pretty solid, and rotating, selection of Mikkeller products.

Oh by the way, message them on Facebook to check in about certain bottles, they'll respond as quickly as possible with the best customer service.
