THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Great Lake Restaurant Review

: Husband and wife owners Nick Lessins and Lydia Esparza offer a brief and seasonally changing selection of pizzas at their diminutive (12-seat) Andersonville eatery. La Quercia apple wood-smoked bacon, fresh mushrooms, avocado and Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative’s Dante aged sheep's milk cheese are the types of ingredients that may grace any given pie. A farmers market salad might precede the main event, and Lydia bakes seasonal mini cookies for dessert. Great Lake is BYOB, but there’s a $3 per person charge.
