Oak Creek, prepare yourself for a slice of Pizza Man.
As first reported by the Journal Sentinel this morning, the beloved pizza restaurant will open its third location on the south side of Oak Creek's Drexel Town Square. The report notes the new location will seat 200, which is less than the other two Pizza Man locations, but that's not including an additional 120-seat patio wrapping around the restaurant.
Pizza Man operating partner Sarah Baker told the JS that the menu will be mostly the same, featuring the pizzas, appetizers and salads that longtime Pizza Man fans have come to love, but the entrees and pastas could differ from the other two restaurants.
Pizza Man – which expanded just last summer into Wauwatosa with a new restaurant in the Mayfair Collection – is just the latest business to plant some roots in Oak Creek. Over the past 365 days, BelAir Cantina, Water Street Brewery and Chick-fil-A – along with a new Meijer store – have all moved into the city, with Chubby Cheesesteaks also looking into expanding into the south suburb.
Baker told the JS that the new Pizza Man is expected to open in early fall at the soonest.
