Best pizza and honey baked chicken you will ever eat

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.

We usually go twice a week, the Pizza is great as is the other dishes (one of my favorites is Baked zita). Staff is friendly, service is great, can't beat it for price.

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

I went as a guest of a parishioner. It was fine but I suspect this is a local haunt and for those who love it they will always love it: no issue with that. There are plenty of nearby voices if this is not your local haunt. Very solid pub lunch choices. Food is fine enough. Service is okay enough.... More

Watervliet, NY -- the Arsenal is there, it was one of my first jobs. Commuted with my Dad. My work group used to go to lunch around the area. I don't remember the Purple Pub as being one of them. Anyway, when we drove up, it was in a run down area and I thought, this can't be good. BUT,... More

When our kids were little we went here with them and had many fun meals with pitchers of soda. Very much a local atmosphere but staff have always been friendly. Now we mostly do takeout getting our old standbys of breaded mushrooms, baked ziti, hot turkey sandwich or one of their fish dinners (salmon is the best) which come with... More

It was Friday evening @ 6:45, it was very busy and our party had 8 adults and 2 children. Our waitress was excellent and was there for all our needs. The meal however was just OK but we all had a great time there.

We are basically hooked on the same items each visit. Chicken wings, seafood pizza and antipasta. This establishment has been in business for years and the food is the reason. Nice relaxed atmosphere. However, there could be times when you may have to wait.

Following a wake, a bunch of us went over to the Purple Pub to eat. Nice people and nice (but quaint as you'd expect for a local pub). When several more joined us, they moved us seamlessly to a bigger table. The draught beer flowed, the conversation animated, the oven-baked chicken wings wetting our appetites while we waited, patiently, and... More
