Pizza is just good, for Aiken, SC I would say better then most. The service is terrible, takes forever to get anything from the kitchen. Salads are different, lots of cheese, but good. I have gotten up and left many times due to the time it takes to get service. VERY NOISY and not a real family... read more

Second time eating here and it was once again spot on. The garlic knots are fresh and tasty. This is a good spot to hit for lunch or for dinner. We will be back again for the pizza and strombli

Good selection of beer, LOVE the Big Mike sandwich WHEN they get it right (don't be in a rush this sandwich takes as long or longer than a pizza, who knows why!) pizza is very good Nd single slices are generous. Inside is noisy but has a large pub/dive vibe with big wood booths. Can be fun if that's your... More

We were coming into town for a quick visit and needed to pick up something for football watching. My wife suggested ordering ahead at the Pizza Joint and we were not disappointed. We had the Big Deal (or something similar to that) which had pepperoni, fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. Very tasty. We also ordered the tossed salad which was very... More

We visit the Joint every Wednesday for Trivia night. The staff is always welcoming, knows our favorites, and the pizza is pretty decent though rarely the crust is a little thin or overdone. The toppings are good and there is a wide variety, and the sandwiches we've tried are good. The menu hasn't change much since we started going regularly.... More

The pizza & the sweet tea were very good. The atmosphere for us wasn't. We visited for lunch and the music was very loud. The decor borders between a rustic, repurposed building and actually needing repair. Very good pizza but restaurant needs an upgrade.

We haven't had the chance to try the Pizza Joint, but glad we did. We had 30 muumuus wait for a table, and another 30 for the pizza, but it was very good, best we have found in the area thus far. Try it you will enjoy it as well.

Children running all over the day we went, A lod of drunk people there. Food was not as good as Pizza Hut delivery. SEEMED that people go there to drink beer. Casual as expected. The name says it all.

Been to this restaurant at least 3 other times and always appreciate they're being pet friendly at their outdoor seating. Convenient location, average cost and ample parking; in the historic area. I've always loved their pizza; it's a place locals frequent. Went here again this past November. The pizza was good (average) and the garlic knots (usually fantastic) were swimming... More

Great place to have dinner outside on the terrace. You can hear the nearby churches chime the hour. Great salads, pizza, sandwiches. You haven't lived until you try their garlic knots dripping with butter! Friendly servers, quick service.
