Bier Stube Pizza (aka Joe’s Place)

Looking to get some good pizza in northwest Columbus — and at a place where you can drink an adult beverage, watch an NCAA game, and shoot some pool or throw some darts?  If so, I suggest Bier Stube/Bier Stube Pizza, located at 2390 West Dublin-Granville Road on the stretch of 161 between Rt. 315 and Sawmill Road.

In the interests of full disclosure, I need to note that my nephew, Joe Hartnett, runs the pizza joint.  Family connection or not, Joe makes a damn good pie.  The crust is crisp and not too thick, and the sauce is tangy and sweet.  What I really like, however, are the meat toppings.  The sausage is especially good, served in large, spicy chunks that seem to snap between your teeth.  Equally important, as the photo of the sausage and pepperoni pizza above suggests, at Bier Stube Pizza they don’t scrimp on the toppings.

The signature pizza is the “Big Al,” named for Joe’s Dad; it is a man-sized meal that is loaded with toppings.  And while you are waiting for your fresh-baked pizza to emerge piping hot from the oven you can sample some pretty good bar food, too — like cheesy bread and fried mushrooms.  They all go down well with a cold one.

Bier Stube Pizza is a neighborhood place with neighborhood prices.  You’ll get your money’s worth, and if you give it a shot you’ll be supporting a budding local businessman and entrepreneur who takes a lot of pride in his product.  Why not try it the next time you have a taste for a well-made pizza?

  1. Thank you for the recommendation. We picked up a couple of pies from the Bier Stube North for the OSU v. George Mason game this afternoon. One Big Al and one Veggie – both delicious!


  2. Good pizza! A group of us tried the Mindy and Big Al and both were awesome. My girlfriend got one of the subs and she liked it too.

    But there were a few idiots up there. A couple of guys were fighting over a card game, while a tall drunk guy with glasses (and bad breath) was trying to make a conversation with us that we wanted no part of.

    We won’t be back, which is too bad because we really did like the food and the service.


    • I’m glad you liked the food, but sorry you had to deal with some apparent idiots. Although it may not be much consolation for you, I think your experience is anomalous — I’ve been there a number of times, and have not had any problems with the other patrons. It’s just too bad that your experience was so different.
