Amazing pie-so what if he's grumpy!

These pies are delicious! I can easily overlook customer service for a great pie. And not unlike most grumpy man if you make a point to be nice to Shurman he treats you just fine. And, hey, I want a great pie not a new best friend. I've had the coconut custard, chocolate cream, banana cream, and... read more

Their pies are homemade - most days you can see Patricia (one of the owners) working diligently in the bakery area. Good pie anytime of year but they really excel for holidays and special occasions -- where else can you get a real mince pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas? Not into pie this week - then try a cupcake: red... More

I spoke with Sherman. He gets a bad rap. Sure he's a bit gruff, but if you take the time to talk to him, he's very interesting. Anyhow, I am buying a pie, not a friend. Soooo.....I ordered two pies. Both chocolate cream, but one gluten-free. Yes they cost more than a store bought pie, but these are made JUST... More

Oh my God every time I have one of Sherman's pies I am just blown away by how good they are. Each time I buy one I think this one won't be as good as I remember. WRONG. These pies are truly The BEST PIES. I've had lemon merangue, triple Berry, pecan, peach and strawberry rhubarb. Each has been unbelievably... More

I will never know what the pies taste like and quit frankly I do not even care. This morning November 27th 2014, on Thanksgiving morning, I went in to pick up a pie I ordered on the phone, on Tues November 25th at 10:25 in the morning. I ordered my pie via voice mail, but I like to make sure... More

Okay the pies are expensive and after eating one I was like this is everyone else's pie...I was wrong. I am having trouble eating other chocolate cream pies because they just do not measure up to this guy's pie (even on a bad day). My Dad likes the Red Velvet Cupcakes, but I have not tried them. We also had... More

Sure, most people don't bake at home anymore and have no idea how to make a pie, so perhaps they think $30 for a one of these creations is a fair and appropriate price. Folks, it's just an ordinary pie like mom used to make, nice crust and tasty, but nothing so special to justify the exorbitant price. Plus, proprietor... More

Couple of my Bowie pals brought me a coconut custard pie from here (across County lines I might add) (so good its like contraband)!! I thought "Oh, no! sweet cream pie. It'll be too sweet for me." I can't eat desserts that are too high in sugar and keep my grams to 14 or below, Boy was I surprised. The... More

Stopped in to get a pie for Thanksgiving. I wasn't impressed by the overpriced pies and it wasn't sweet enough for me. We tried the apple pie. Once was enough for me, I've had better pies for less money. Husband and wife owned business, free parking, not so friendly service.

Took a wild chance that there would be at least one Mince Pie. There was! Very few places sell this pie in the MD, PA, VA, DC area. Plus just a great day for a drive even if there hadn't been a pie. It is good, but $30? Far too much money for such a simple pie. Crust is good.... More
