A favorite stop whenever I'm in the Buffalo/Williamsville area. The tap list is always very solid and bottles are available for on premise or take-out. There hasn't been a time I can remember visiting when they didn't have a beer I've never had. I'm also really into salads, especially Southwest style and the Tex-Mex is killer, of course, Pizza Plant is known for their Pods and if you visit for the first time, that's a "must".

Pizza Plant also has live music depending on the day of he week which lends itself to a pretty cool atmosphere.

'Never had a bad meal here and very rare I have a beer that I didn't like. Highly recommended.

A good pizza/beer destination. The atmosphere is OK, not great- a lot like Pizzeria UNO or Applebees with all the tacky shit on the walls.

The food was pretty good- got a Pod, and it was humongous. Got a little tired of it by the end, but that more a fault of size than taste.

The tap list ran about 20 deep, with some excellent selections. Got DFH Piercing Pils and Brew Dog/Evil Twin Hello My Name is Sonja. Our waitress was marginally knowledgeable- she at least knew that Sonja was a "weird IPA." Lots of other good selections if we had wanted to stay longer and get drunk. Up to date beer menu is nice- as well as what beer would go on tap once various ones were kicked. If you live in the area and go often, this feature is money.

The bar is small, but there are tables around the bar for people to sit. Bartenders can serve quite a few people because of the extra tables. The beer selection changes quite a bit with the 24 taps always rotating (except for one Guinness and one is always a Sam Adams something) There is a cooler with bottles, 12oz and 22+oz beers. These are very pricey. The bartenders are pretty good. The girls know a bit about the beers and the owner is there quite a bit and is very helpful. Several times a week there is a band or a musician playing. It can go either way with the bands as the area they play in is not that large.

The food is delicious. The Pods and other non-traditional pizza are the way to go.

This is a go to place for me and my girlie because of the variety of beer styles on draft. There is a deal where you buy a draft card which gives you 15 beers at a price up front ($55 today) which makes all the draft beers very reasonable, but it can be a little pricey if you are only going to have a pint or two and do not have the card.

After what seemed like a very long wait the "new" location of Pizza Plant has finally opened just up the street from where they used to be on Transit Road. This location, thankfully, is in a much bigger building. The decor is pretty much the same as the old building but there are quite a few more tables and room for an actual bar with about 15 or so seats. The menu is the same as their old location but the beer options here are vastly expanded. 29 taps instead of about 10 before. All craft beer (except for Guinness) with nice mix of local (flying bison, soutehrn tier, ommegang) and east coast (dogfish) and west coast (stone, lagunitas) available. The food is always very good at both locations. I love their pods and there curry nacho appitizer is awesome. Service is ok. They are always super busy so you don't always get the most attentive service but that is not a huge deal.

Overall a very good place to eat, drink and be merry. Highly recommended. Just wish this location was a little closer to where I live but I will still make the trip here whenever I can.
