I am sad we live a good 3 hours from here because I think the pizza we had here is one of the best ever. We had their River Special, what is neat about it is that they put sauerkraut on the pizza, it's one of their signature pizzas and we found it from raving reviews online. It may sound... More

The pizza's were well made with enough toppings and cheese. We ordered a large meat lovers and a medium one-topping that was the special. Fairly priced and delivered to our hotel room.

We were staying at an area hotel (Microtel) and decided we wanted pizza delivered. Not knowing the area, I asked the desk clerk what she recommended and she said Old River Pizza Co. They had a really great special for delivery: 1 large 2-topping pizza, fluffy, hot breadsticks, and a 2-liter of soda for $19.99... with tax and maybe delivery,... More

The food was wonderful - husband had the calzone and thought about doing the 5 lb competition but decided against it. He enjoyed food as well as part of the pizza! The service was slow - 5 minutes longer actually took 20 minutes which was frustrating. The atmosphere is outdoorsy and comfy. Good value for the food that you get.

The pizza and the service was great. After a long day watching football it was nice to have a friendly face in a cool place to eat.

This restaurant was a huge disappointment. I saw it advertized in the hotel directory, looked at their webpage (which was very well done) and called to place an order. I ordered the chicken calzone which didn't mean their $12.00 min. purchase for delivery so I ordered the cheesy breadsticks. When my order was delivered, it wasn't warm and they didn't... More

We were very impressed with the wait help- the owner is on the premise. Very complete buffet not your cheesy Pizza Hut mess. Pizza is thin crust and the rib tips were great! Coffee special brewed for us and they made extra pizzas to our liking. We will go again.
