small plates are great

When I first looked at the menu for lunch I was a little disappointed that there was nothing that I could have without spending $20 which I didn't feel like doing for an quick lunch. I then saw the small plate menu and that was perfect. The prices were excellent and so was the portions and the... read more

Menu continues to be so varied - had soup and sandwich (pea/barley and chicken club - would get both of those again!). My friend had the Italian sandwich (something was pretty hot in flavor in there - I could not have eaten it) She also took home an order of chicken piccata for later (yummy!) Service was attentive, the restaurant... More

The food was the disappointing part. My half veggie salad was limp and uninteresting. For $10 it was not more than a side. I go there because it's an easy place to meet friends for lunch and the service is courteous and will probably be back.

Our local CPK is where we go when no one really knows what they want. It never let's us down. The menu choices are interesting, the food is well prepared, and the portions are generous. For either eating in or picking up and bringing home, CPK is a good choice for great appetizers, interesting salads, specialty pizzas, and satisfying pasta... More

This place is in our neighborhood. Many employees have been their since the beginning. Very friendly. Food is good and fine for a casual outing with friends and family. Had the plank salmon last time, you can't go wrong with that. Of course Pizza is great.

We like this place because they have nice variety in the menu, the food is consistently good and the service is quick. From time to time they change some items in the menu to keep it interesting. The prices are reasonable.

Well, we love any CPK! There is always something great to choose from and they are constantly adding new items, which are always good. We love the whole grain pizza dough and their thin crust. You can ask them to put that on any pizza you order. We love their salads as well. I can't think of anything we have... More

arrived at CPK and find out that now you have to make a big deal to get butter with your bread. they want you to use the oil they provide because it is healthier. I was told butter was not available at all but pushed back a little then got a small tab of it from the kitchen. this is... More
