We did go at a busy time, but the service was way too slow for the offerings that they brought. Their pizza was superb and everyone had a great time. However, the services and the servers were unprofessional and too busy to care at least a bit.

For an appetizer we has the fresh corn and bean guac and chips. It's less than $4 and its very good. My table had the fish tacos, BBQ chicken pizza, and club sandwich with Cesar salad. All the food was great, very fresh and came out fast. Service was very friendly. The plaza where it is located in has a... More

Our family lives nearby and enjoys this restaurant often. The food is very good, as is the table service. My only suggestion is to visit some other time than Saturday night, unless you are looking for a loud, jammed house. In my case, I requested takeout when the line for a table was long, as I was interested in a... More

They have decent food, with both pasta and pizza and other selections, and we've never had bad service there. They have a good kids' menu, and my kids love it. I find it a bit overpriced for what you get, however.

You know what you are going to get when you dine at CPK. The menu rarely changes and it is a bit of a factory but one knows that going into eat. Their pizzas are delish (sauce is a bit sugary so be prepared for that...I happen to like that) and their other dishes (pastas) aren't half bad.

It is so much better than fast food & prices are competitive. My husband & I have eaten all the salads here - each one is delicious. Pizza is... More

Eat here a few times a year usually for lunch on a weekend or govt. holiday. Upside is they have good food and good service. Downside is usually a wait (20-40 minutes). But I am usually with my daughter and we both really like the food, so we wait. Not sure if there is a wait during weekday lunch. I... More

Good local, quick meal. Try salads, pizza. Kids OK. Service can slow at peak times. A good value for the money.

The pizza was delicious. We also had the chips and guac and spring rolls for the table. Both we very good. Our big party for lunch had a bit of a wait, I wish they'd take a reservation for lunch.
