My friend and I ate here one night for dinner last month. We were really looking forward to our meal here as my friend had heard rave reviews from another friend. My friend and I were in town to walk and explore Placerville. I ordered the Chicken Curry pot pie which had an Indian flavor. The pie tasted good although... More

I love pot pies and these are some of the most unique pies you will ever have. Atmosphere is interesting Old Town Placerville. Lot's of old drink to choose from as well. But the pies are great. I wish they were a bit larger portions, but otherwise, no complaints.

My first visit and I fell in love. So many to choose from..will have to come back! From steak w/ burgundy, Lamb (I loved this one), Thai chicken to Veggie. I make great pie crust so can be quite picky. It was flaky and they didn't burn it! But don't miss out on the salad. I had the Spinach, Pear... More

Good pot pies. Selection of pies provided a good but limited variety. We liked the pies, the price, and that one pie made for a nice size meal without leaving you stuffed. Side salad sold as additional cost to pie was pretty skimpy for the price, but good.

Staying in Placerville overnight and wanted to eat here. We weren't disappointed. The chicken and mushroom pie and the beef pie were both very good. Wine and beer list also nice and compliments the dishes. Dessert menu is wicked. It's not fancy but if you want a good solid and "homemade" fare, this is your place.

Lora had a Rosemary Lamb pot pie,.while I ordered the Southwest Chicken, just two of the 8 varieties. Delicious. Both of them. Followed by a Berry pot pie (... More

Got a steak and Cabernet pie, salad with balsamic dressing and an apple pie for later. All were top notch, fresh, loaded with hearty ingredients. Great decor and happy people behind counter.

Z-Pie proves that it is possible to go out for dinner without breaking the bank. We had been meaning to try this place for months, but have overlooked because it is not right on Main. The other night we didn't feel like cooking and dropped in to the restaurant for an early Sunday dinner. We shared a gargonzola salad, which... More
