For a chain it was good

Family of four we were seated outside right away (7pm) and got our drinks quickly. Our orders consisted of a variety of menu items from pizzas to salads. All were very good. I thought our service was fine as well. Again for a chain restaurant it was not bad.

Ever since CPK finished their renovations, we've been going often. Safe to say at least once per week. The bar area is where we typical camp out. Great new look and super friendly staff. Good food and great laughs.

I ordered the lunch duo, which for me this day was a 7" veggie pizza and a small bowl of tortilla soup. Both were very tasty. Service was excellent. My waiter was affable and efficient. The ambiance could have been enjoyable except for the annoying loud noise in the form of music. I felt as though I was in a... More

We have been to CPK in other areas and it is always good. This time, everything was perfect. Seated quickly, timing of food was great, food (all of it) was great and really hit the spot after a long day, and service was excellent. We couldn't have asked for any better. Well done, CPK of Ft. Lauderdale.

You can count on CPK for a good pizza. They also have an assortment of salads and other dishes, and recently started offering a special lunch offering that is very moderately priced. The food is okay. The music and din of the restaurant can be a little loud. At peak hours, parking in the lot can be difficult. Desserts are... More

We come with friends or family. Good choices of salads or pizza. Salads come either lunch size or dinner sizes. Staff is friendly, the service is quick. This one is renovated, there is seating outside on the terrace, its relaxing, but very cold, ladies, bring your sweaters !! That's the only problem! All the food is very good.

I live on the beach and pass by this place loose everyday. I always wondered what kind of food they had and what it looked like inside. I finally decided to come in and it was the best decision ever. Our waiter Sam was so nice and even gave us all the I got about the company and how it... More

Ok, so I know they have been around for a while but this was our first time going to this place. I prefer Humpy's and other Mom and Pop pizza places, but we were in the area and hungry. So the jist is just like the title says. Very nice decor, nice people seating the customers and done quickly. As... More

I have eaten at their restaurant at Sawgrass Mills several times and that one is also very good. Love their Asian sallad and also their pizzas with pear and gorgonzola is delicious! Their staff has always been friendly and their service is quick. Relaxing atmosphere and not too loud music. Nice place to have something good to eat. Also tried... More
