Great variety of food, always consistent

I have been ordering take out from this place for over 3 years and I am never disappointed. The chicken parm is great and so are the hot subs.

Always visit here. This local pub has the best pizza, clams, wings, etc. has full menu for lunch/dinner also. Never had a bad meal. Family friendly. Be prepared to wait after 6-7pm. Well worth it!

Most any night of the week you may have to wait for a table. This family owned and operated establishment has great food and a wide selection of offerings. Italian food is fresh and tasty.

This was our first take out as we usually dine in...but with it being the night before thanksgiving figured it would be busy. The pizza is delicious and the menu quite varied. We have been fans of The Purple Pub for years and always look forward to our meals here.

The Purple Pub has been around for over 40 years. In the early years there would be a line of people waiting outside to get in. Eventually, the dining room was expanded and the lines pretty much disappeared. But that didn’t mean the customers stopped coming, they simply got seated and served more quickly. Sure, the interior became worn and... More

They have pizza to die for, and their chicken wings are broiled and wonderful in every way. Honey baked chicken is crispy, moist and soooooo tasty. Be sure to go often and try everything on the menu. It's extensive, so p,an on going back often.

I was born and raised in Maplewood and naturally support the businesses. I worked at the "Pub" before going in the military back in '74. I still go when I'm in town but, living in South Carolina makes it hard. Greg and Butch have got to be the nicest guy's from nice families. What makes this place is that it... More
