I came early for lunch on 21 December 2014. I was the only customer. Kelsey did a good job with the table service, but the spinach salad was lackluster. The spinach was not very fresh, and the walnuts included in the salad were apparently old as they had that kind of bitter/rancid taste that goes with old stock. The chicken... More

I've been to a half-dozen restaurants in the MacKenzie River Pizza chain, and have been a loyal patron for over 20 years. However this particular restaurant has some problems. Our group of 4 arrived at about 2:00 in the afternoon, well after the noon-time rush. There were only about 3 or 4 other groups in the restaurant. The waitress was... More

I call and order gluten free pizzas all of the time. The approximate time given over the phone of when my order will be ready is almost always accurate. I have never gotten sick from eating their gluten free food either, which means that there is little to no cross contamination. Pizzas are also delicious

In rating the service, I'd give it a 1. In rating the food, I'd give it a 5. I chose a 3 to compromise between the two. This is a popular place because the food is so good but be prepared to wait a LONG time for your food. We were there as a group of 10. To ease the... More

We ordered delivery and they took to hours to call us and say they couldn't find our hotel. I told them the address and the name of the hotel and its not even half a mile down the road. We didn't even get an apology. Never going there.

We sat in the bar. The server, Brock, obviously loved his job! He was fantastic! The Hot Hawaiian was absolutely delicious! Not a crumb left on the plate! The same goes for the Branding Iron! Just terrific! There wasn't an empty table in the bar. Nor was there one in the restaurant! There were at least 40 people waiting for... More

Some worker who was passing by us at the door acknowledged us, and thats always a welcoming sign. He seated us and told us who our... More

When we arrived at this very popular pizza joint we were told we would have to wait for half an hour. No problem with that but when we did get seated it took 45 minutes more to get two pizzas delivered to our table. Too many tables, not enough kitchen staff? Whatever. This is simply too long a wait for... More

In every town we travel, we usually go to a pizza place. My husband is very picky. He likes crisp bottomed pizza, very little sauce . He had the sausage pizza. The crisp was good, but too much sauce under the cheese and very little sausage. I ordered their turkey, bacon and Avo sandwich on their homemade bread and it... More
