A vast array of suds, gourmet pies built with fresh ingredients, and friendly staffers populate The Pizza Peel and Tap Room's affable neighborhood confines. Each specialty pizza ($8 for an eight-inch, $20 for a 16-inch) is perched upon a delectable crust that is chewy on the inside and crunchy on its outskirts, just like Barry Bonds. The barbecue-chicken pizza surrounds its grilled poultry with red onion, roasted red peppers, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and a smattering of cilantro. Stock an empty-shelved stomach with the Sorry for Partying Supreme (add $1), which is swimming in pepperoni, ground beef, sausage, mozzarella, three kinds of peppers (green, red, and banana), onion, and mushroom. The diverse menu is also home to multiple un-pizzafied eats such as the crisp and moist peel wings ($5.25–$13.75), which come dressed in teriyaki, Buffalo, jerk, inferno, or sweet-chili sauce, or the homespun chips, spackled with a special spice blend ($4.95).
Inside the Pizza Peel's restful tap room lies an ecosystem of numerous draft suds species, potentially featuring domestic microbrews such as Rogue Dead Guy Ale and Magic Hat #9, in addition to imported favorites like Guinness, Warsteiner, and Wolfenstein 3D. The tap changes weekly, so consult with a bartender or call Miss Cleo to see what's in store. Those preferring grapes to hops can sample from the ample wine selection.
Dark-brown paneling and a rustic décor greet prospective patrons with the feel of a welcoming local saloon, only without the threat of being challenged to a duel. The spacious indoor seating and pleasant outdoor patio can comfortably house important meetings, herds of hungry kids, or an impromptu Bunko tournament.

The Pizza Peel and Tap Room gets good reviews from the Charlotte Observer and Chowhound, and grabs an A, or outstanding, average from five BeerAdvocates. Eighty-one percent of Urbanspooners like it and Yelpers give it an average of four stars:
- Wood pizza peels (the paddles on which you slide pizzas into the oven) and pans dot the walls of this rustic, wooded, comfy room with some booths, some tables and a slide-up-here bar. – Helen Schwab, Charlotte Observer
- Very very good pizza. I have had a few, and some are better than others. The positive friction is my favorite by far. Great beer selection and atmosphere. – Zac, Urbanspoon
- It's a social low key place worth checking out if you like to sample different local and foreign brews and have a decent pizza or sandwich at the same time. A good place to hang out with friends and meet some locals. – ForkOver, Chowhound
- The most impressive thing about this place is the selection of each brewery group. Instead of having your staple beers from each brewery you'll find seasonal and rare selections from each. Good food here too considering it's a pizza place. Where else can you get spicey [sic] chipotle tomatoe [sic] paste instead of marinara on your pizza!?! – chaz410, BeerAdvocate
- The Pizza Peel is an instant top 5 Charlotte beer destination. It has a very homey feel with cabin like wood walls and a small neighborhood type feel. The pizza is very good, some of the best I've had in Charlotte. The wings are exceptional as well. – lpb1970, BeerAdvocate
