I went to Pequod's Pizzeria in Lincoln Park tonight with Windy City Pizza Club. They took our reservation because we had a large party and honored it with a nice table in the upstairs area. The tables were nice, but the lighting was poor. I suppose the building is just old though. The menu was pretty good with a basic amount of pizza which was expected from places that specialize in making good crust.
I ordered a Pan Sausage 10 inch which is a pretty awesome size wise as it feeds 1-2 people with 4 giant slices. I really like burnt crust and this was awesome stuff. They caramelize the crust to a dark brown color and crunchy texture. The pizza itself was good, not great as it had way too much tomato sauce. I really liked the crust and sausage!
Obviously, I was with a group of 20 people which usually results in semi slower service, but shouldn't have been this slow. I am not sure if they didn't have enough servers on, but it was pretty terrible. By far the worst service I have ever had at a pizza place. Don't get me wrong, our waitress was sweet and nice and helped us out, but it was extra slow tonight. The pizza's took almost an hour to come out, and some pizza's got screwed up in the kitchen and came out even later than that. Water service was slow but not important as there were no bus boys on duty.
Again, the pizza was definitely good, not great, and our waitress was nice, but the actual service wasn't good. The check actually came out with just a bunch of numbers on it. We had no clue what they stood for until we had it clarified for us. I would go back, but not with a large group.

I have never lived in Chicago, but occasionally visit for business and/or visits with friends. I discovered Pequod's after visiting a friend in Lincoln Park and it has been my favorite pizza ever since. I've taken co-workers, friends, and family there when we've been in town. The pizza is unlike any I've ever eaten--it's the best. I don't know what else to say here, other than I've hopped in many a Chicago cab and told them to take me ""near Webster and Clyburn"" to Pequod's in my southern accent (I've never lived above the Mason Dixon line). That may disqualify me from judging pizza in some people's minds, but I guarantee you that if you eat a pizza at Pequod's, you'll know what I mean. It's been way too long...need to plan a trip.
I will admit it is a bit out of the way, but the drive is well worth it. If we are leaving one of the many activities in the downtown area for the day, we hold out for food until we can get to peqouds.The food alone is worth it. Even though the servers always seem to be understaffed, they dont take it out on us. They still give each table time and service.Not enuf tables,our only problem,even though there is an upstairs,the must have only certain hours for it to be open,not just when it is needed. I'll do it again and again!!!!

who is this register girl she was terrible... I went in friday night expecting everyone to be nice and friendly since all me friends have recommended this place to me... I went and got my pick up... the first two girls and the front table helped me right away... one of them went to go check on me pizza she came back and told me it would be five minutes... NO PROBLEM... the other girl asked me if i wanted to seat at the bar while i waited and i ordered a drink the bartender guy was hilarious! then the register girl (the one that looks like a man with a big nose) comes up to me all snobby and asked me if i wanted to pay... there are alot pretier girls in this restaurant and were not walking around thinkning that they were alot better than everyone.. the pizza is expensive but delicious... my fiance and i finished it so quickly... it was just so delicious... all of the employees were great i'm sure we all hate people who think they are better then everyone... maybe it's just me but i despise ugly snobby girls... other then that yes i will go back to pequod's YUMMMMMM

Pequod's isn't anything fancy - actually, it's a bit ""rundown"" but that doesn't matter when you're going for great pizza. I'm partial to the pan pizza, so my comments are directed to the pan pizza. The service is quick and the staff is really friendly. Every once in awhile, I order their par baked pizza to cook at home and it always tastes as good as it does in the restaurant.

This is one of my favorite pizza places in the city. I enjoy the pan pizza much more than the stuffed ""Chicago style"" crust. Since the fire, they have definitely cleaned the place up, so it's likely they'll get more customers who were afraid to come in before. Although I didn't mind the ""dive"" experience that Pequod's used to provide, you can't ignore the fact that the pan pizza is still excellent. The carmelized crust is fantastic. The service can be slow, but consider that part of the relaxing experience. Watch the game. Enjoy the pizza!
