I usually come here every Saturday for Lunch. The service is always friendly and quick and there is a small bar section that I like to sit at. The food is outstanding. They serve artisan personal pizzas along with other italian dishes. 800 Degrees has a small tap lineup but it's better than any other place on this side of town. They also put effort in the selection and rotating the taps.

Weekend nights can get busy and it can get loud in here as well. But it's worth it if you are looking for a great meal.

First and foremost, best pizza in Fort Wayne. Organic veggies and meats from local farmers. Good ingredients make great pizza. That being said, they keep a great rotation of beers on tap. Seems like every time we go they have Kentucky bourbon ale on tap, gets a lil old. Alot of special Bells brews, FFF, darkhorse, etc. No real service since you have to order your own food at the counter like a bbq joint. Pizzas are great but a bit pricey for size, overall great value though.

Definitely an excellent place. Everything on draft is craft, think maybe even everything in the bottle is also. Had Stone Russian Imperial Stout in a snifter for $4.50, had never had it on draft so that was a nice thing. The list wasn't real up to date, ask them if they have new draft selections.

Wasn't sure about trying it since I had seen one of the reviews that mentioned the noise of the place. Could see where it might get noisy, metal ceiling, probably worse in the winter when everyone is crammed in. Nice weather can sit outside.

Part of the restaurant has normal table service. The other part, you find a table, look at the menu and decide, then go up to the counter and order your salad, pizza, beer etc. That was fine by us, not a big deal to do. And we ordered the dessert at the same time and one of the servers came around later after we had our pizza and asked if we would like to have our dessert then. Nice for a pizza joint, most places would probably forget.

Had the Forno salad, vinaigrette with frizze lettuce, mushrooms, onions. A half order for two was plenty! Ordered the three mushroom pizza with prosciutto, extremely tasty. For dessert had the banana turnover. Bananas stuffed into the same dough they use for the pizza, with nutella inside, baked in the oven, with 2 big scoops of what tasted like homemade vanilla ice cream.

I live about 2 hours away but I'm ever back in Ft Wayne (oh please) I will definitely be back for lunch or dinner.

Sounds cliche, but I don't work for the place, I have no connection to the owner. Its just a really good place to have some tasty pizza and craft beer.

Convenient location near Lima and DuPont. Atmosphere is "Ft. Wayne strip mall/Chicago trendy restaurant fusion." High ceilings, exposed beams, concrete floor. Open kitchen with giant wood burning pizza oven prominently featured. Loud, but not overwhelmingly so. Points subtracted for the soundtrack that hasn't changed in two years, which inexplicably features Jamiroquai in heavy rotation.

Friendly service, though sometimes slow and/or inattentive.

Quality here is very good - both in terms of beer and food. Always a solid lineup of craft brew, typically featuring 1-2 flagship and seasonal brews each from FFF, Bell's, and Founder's, with the occasional limited/one-off on tap, like KBS, Batch 9000, or Ham on Rye. Bottle list is small, but usually has a few interesting offerings. Pizza is neapolitan style, and is unrivalled in NE Indiana.

Beer prices are reasonable, especially given the outrageously exensive bottle shops in Ft. Wayne. Food is a little expensive by Ft. Wayne standards, but is commensurate with the quality of product.

800 Degrees Pizza is located in the little strip mall with the Cap N Cork at the intersection of Lima Rd and Dupont.

800 Degrees is locally owned (Matt), even though the atmosphere inside is rather chain like. There is a small bar area to your left with full service, the larger family area is to your right and requires you to place your order at the counter as you enter.

The pizza is very good east coast style thin crust. Some interesting pre-made choices, or you can " build your own". The only other food offerings are salads and garlic bread or bruchetta. (Sp ?)

The taps number only six, but are worthwhile. They recently had a keg of Three Floyds "Ham On Rye", and currently have Dog Fish Head Brown, and a couple of selections from Boulevard Brewing out of Kansas City. There are also some interesting bottles. I am told they plan on adding more taps soon.

We always sit in the bar area, and service has always been good, and quite friendly. Be prepared for a short wait for a seat on Friday and Saturday nights.

A fine addition to the Ft Wayne food/beer scene.
