About the restaurant
You are cordially invited to visit Transfer Pizzeria Café, located in the Harbor District on the corner of 1st and Mitchell Streets. Established in 2008, the namesake is Transfer Pharmacy, a classic cornerstone drugstore from a bygone era that for decades supplied a thriving community with goods and services as evidenced by the stained glass windows still in place. The pharmacy was appropriately named for the constant activity that took place just outside - the boarding, departures, and transfers of the countless daily commuters of the time. The tradition of a reliable cornerstone establishment continues today, as Transfer Pizzeria delivers a unique dose of delicious pizza, drink, atmosphere, and friendly service.

We keep an active wait-list and gladly accommodate walk-ins as part of both our lunch and dinner service.

Our meal at Transfer Pizza was excellent. We had their Caesar salad and the Vegetarian pizza. Both were perfect! Our waiter was helpful and responsive. We love the ambiance of the place…a former pharmacy with all charm that takes you back to that time. Quaint and charming! Finally, the quality/value index is exceptionally high. Go for it!

The seats were very, very uncomfortable. Hard wood to sit on and way too short for the leg length. Noise level was too high for 4 of us to sit and visit.

Great addition to the Green Bay restaurant scene. 2nd time there and both times everything was first class. We are foodies from Chicago and this is the best restaurant in Green Bay.

Beautiful space, tables, bar. Very attentive friendly service by server, bartender and kitchen team (who delivered food to table). Diverse menu. Shared the spicy and kimchee dumplings and beef bulgogi - spice level is exceptional but not overpowering for spice lovers. Nice addition to the Third Ward in a space that we are happy to see filled again. Will return.
