Great Burger

Had the signature "picklefish burger". Despite the fact that I don't enjoy things with jalepeno's, it was very tasty. I'll have to return for one of the pizzas or the chicken parm po-boy that I saw on the menu. I should note that it took over 30 minutes to get my food because of an order mix-up... read more

Great white veggie/chicken pizza! Wait was forever! Worth it, but will call ahead next time with order.

We read good reviews and thought we would try it and we are glad we did. It was a bar setting but at the time we visited, there were families there with children. We waited quite a long time for our pizza for it not being too busy, but it was worth the wait and we were able to watch... More

Picklefiish is located really close to my house. I've been going in there for 15 years. It has never been good. Obviously, I don't go there often. But from time to time I'll meet somebody there, or hear something good about the place, so I'll go back. I went there tonight, and it's been 8-9 months since I stepped into... More

We went to Picklefish for lunch last Sun and ordered the Buffalo chicken pizza and the great white pizza. They were wonderful. My husband said it was the best Buffalo chicken pizza he'd ever had. The crust was crispy but still foldable. The decor is basic and there's a pool table. They had a good selection of craft draft beer... More

This is a popular place near the University of South Alabama. I'm really not sure why people like it so much. The food was fair, slightly over priced, and took a long time to prepare. Service was average. The place is very run down with bare cement floors, old tables, and a noisy location. I won't be back.

If the staff and beer were not so good I would never go to Picklefish. Over the last several years the pizza has become less and less great. Recently I went for lunch and had the pizza without beer and realized that the pizza was not exceptional. I must admit that when I go to a pizza restaurant I only... More

3.5 just for the food. Food was great enough to ignore the noisy ambience around us. Limited staff so be ready to wait a little longer. We ordered artichoke and spinach dip . dip as creamy as that, we did not know when the plate became empty. We ordered a simply veggie pizza. Thin crust, veggies and marinara. Pizza was... More

I will say the wings were crispy and I liked that. But the pizza..well I have had better. I don't know why the place wins contests. The crust is thin but hard. The had a lot of toppings but i did think my "extra cheese" could have been cheesier. The staff was friendly and tentative. I just think I would... More

The food is excellent. Ask for Matt. Hes the friendliest most attentive employee. Sometimes they get slammed because they are across from the university and there may be events happening. But this is a laidback chill atmosphere. If people are so uptight they are timing their food they need to head to McDonald's. Tell those people to shutup and get... More
