When a building is no longer in use, pizza chefs come and rebuild the ambiance. Despite the eerie look from the outside, the inside smells like heaven. O'Zone Pizza Pub is a restaurant situated on a gothic building serving specialty pizza, salads and beer on tap.
The pizza joint is housed in the basement of the old Sacred Heart Hospital which was built in 1915. Once you enter the venue you will notice the castle-themed facade with empty corridors and the smokey smell coming from the kitchen.
O'Zone Pizza Pub has a delicious menu offering half-priced pizza on Mondays, ladies' night on Thursdays and a kitchen special where the kitchen crew creates a tasty new recipe each week and pairs it with a pint of your choice.
Besides offering cheesy treats, O'Zone's menu offers small gluten-free pies starting at $12.95. All pies are made with a homemade pizza sauce and a special mozzarella cheese blend. For those adventurous palates out there, you can choose toppings such as goat cheese, cream cheese, fresh jalapeños and more.
After your festive feast, you can explore the first three floors of the building where you will see cases filled with medical equipment, frightening old pictures with nuns, and possibly a ghost — or maybe the ghost will see you.
According to WEARTV, some people have claimed that the fourth and fifth floors have panaromal activity and ghosts looming around. It is also rumored that the morgue was located in the basement, now where the pizza pub resides.
According to a Trip Advisor review, "The atmosphere, front of the house and food is always top notch!!! We always forget how big the medium is and we leave with plenty of leftover."
This eclectic pizza joint is everything you need for a date-night during Halloween season. Maybe a little ghost hunting with a cheesy dish will bring excitement to any hungry thrill-seeker.
