We stopped in at Old School after 10 years away from Olympia. This used to be one of our favorite places to grab a cheap bite to eat. Although the prices are still very reasonable, we found the quality to be not what it was like before. After placing our order, we waited around 25 minutes - for just 2... More

The pizza was very good, its different than your normal take out. I really enjoyed the sauce. The mavel painting on the side of the building was impressive. The inside could have been a little cleaner. However, I think that is the vibe and feeling they are going for. My kids really enjoyed the place. Highly recommend to give them... More

We took kids in for lunch and I was excited as it smelled divine. No waiter/waitress service. The thick pizza or deep dish was good but the thin crust was hard to cut even with a knife. It was chewy. Nothing special.

The Old School Pizzeria is a downtown casual 'walk up, place your order, and pick it up at the end of the counter when they call your name' place. The Friday evening we went, there was a constant line of the tattooed and pierced youth of downtown Olympia lined up to order. You can get pizza by the slice or... More

We had lunch there and we both ordered small pizzas-big mistake. Their small pizza is large anywhere else. The atmosphere is old hippie, but seemed clean, we did not use the restrooms. The pizza was good, however it seemed dull and boring, I had sausage, mushroom and onion, which I have had many times, and my wife had an pizza... More

The walls are covered in posters from the 80s and 90s. The bathroom looks like spray paint cans blew up with all the grafitti. It is an EXPERIENCE to eat in this place. And the pizza is phenomenal. I had no idea pizza could taste this good before going to Old School. The pizza is thin crust, NY style. You... More

Good stop for lunch. We like the pizza and soft drinks. We love the atmosphere, covered with old posters, the sound of pinball machines. A good quick stop.

You can't get good pizza on the west coast like on the east coast but this is a good place to go. The pizza is great. Fun atmosphere and fast service
