Real nice hometown feel to the Columbia Inn. Met up with another pizza loving connoisseur buddy of mine. We go way back rating pizza, before Davey boy was weened off his bot bot . 👶🏼🍼 We liked the thinness and how light it was. It’s an “easy to devour the whole thing when you’re hungry” type of pizza, for sure. Very tasty pizza pie. Sauce is excellent and cheese pretty decent. It was so light and so good, we decided we could consume two whole pizzas. And that’s where I discovered my rating basis. While thin is good, and oh yeah it was firm (no flop), it also contributes to a teensy weenzie bit ‘o dryness. I’d have been right up there with David Portnoy and the national average if not for that. 🍕Really good pie🍕Worth the drive🍕A solid 8.0+, but I am being fair and honest at an 8.22012 from this guy🍕Suggestion: if your a half pep guy like me, on this particular pizza, do not add it. Just get the plain pizza. It has a reverse affect with the cheese. It’s competing. And we can’t have that. 😳😵💫🤪

Bar Pie here! Personally, I am not a bar pie guy, so I rank them differently. The crust was extra thin and crispy. There was a small amount of cheese to go along with the size of the pie. The pie was very flavorful, as far as getting filled up, I had to go out for lunch after devouring this bar pie!

Man it's been awhile since I've done one these reviews. Figured I'd hit one of Portnoy's favorite places in Jersey to end the year. Drove 35 min for this one and you can tell by my score I left disappointed. It did have great crisp and quality cheese. The ratios did favor the cheese heavily. Sauce did have some decent flavors but it was too watery. Biggest downfall to me was the lack of crust and flavor in the dough. Bar pie isn't my favorite type pie, so I wouldn't recommend you traveling far distances for it. If you are a bar pie lover give it a try if you are in the area. Hope everyone has a great New Years and best wishes in 2023.

Great place and awesome staff Very thin pizza - you can eat 2 without even realizing it. …way better than Stan Chitchs.

Legit thin crust in North Jersey what’s not to like? Crust is badass, nice and crust. Maybe not as much flavor as Pete and Eldas. Still good.

Wow!! Super thin, great crunch - outstanding flavor and everything you could ask for…worth the trip every time! Don’t miss this one.

A little too thin and the sauce and cheese were ok. Good pizza but not great.

Surprised by this fantastic Bar Pie! Usually not my favorite style, but this one has the classic crispy thin crust, but with some character and taste! And the tasty sauce gets equal billing with the appropriately subservient cheese.

One of the best Bar pizza’s… super thin crust, sauce and cheese are great. Good cold and even next day… the Italian food is great too

Tried the cheese and also pepperoni from goldbelly. Super thin crust. Cheese was better than the pepperoni. Nice pizza, I'm sure it's better there and not frozen.

Paper thin crust. Basic sauce and cheese. But it was put together so well. The ratio of cheese and sauce to crust was great and no blemishes on the pizza.

If thin crust is your thing then I recommend.Perfect cheese to sauce ratio even with the toppings no flop or grease. Very tasty worth the ride.

Ultra thin crust that’s tasty. Pizza is super solid just not my thing.

I’m not a big thing crust fan but this pizza did not disappoint. This pizza has a perfect crunch and the sauce to cheese ratio is almost spot on. 10/10 would recommend if you are in the area it is worth the stop.

I don’t get the hype, maybe because I’m not a fan of the cracker thin crust - the toppings taste good but to me it’s lost with this crappy crust! Mediocre at best. This is a true Lemming theory experiment!
