Dewey's is very close to Miami Valley Hospital, and we took a break to get out of there for a bit while visiting a family member. It was a good distraction. Very good pizza, decent wine and beer, and friendly service. The decor is fun urban-industrial. We would definitely go back if in the area.

When I was a student at UD, the Brown St. corridor was not nearly as nice as it is now. But additions such as Dewey's has made this a very desirable location. I was not aware of Dewey's until our recent visit to Dayton. My sister, brother-in-law and niece asked us if we wanted to meet them there for dinner.... More

I know everyone seems to get excited about Dewey's but I'm not exactly sure why. The pizza is good, the salad is good, they sometimes have some great local beers not tap, but honestly, they rush you in and out (including giving you the bill before you're even done chewing on your $18 pizza) and the pizzas aren't all that...

We LOVE Dewey's and make it a point to eat here when we are in the area. You can get any 'typical' pizza, but there are some awesome and unique ones too. Our favorite is the Edgar Allen Poe, with kalamata olives and whole garlic cloves - what's not to love??

Dewey's is by far the best pizza near the UD campus, far surpassing the usual chains popular with college students. Freshly made with fresh ingredients, Dewey's pizzas avoid that over-tomato-y heaviness afflicting most pizza chain recipes. The regular menu items are excellent but I recommend you always ask what the special limited-time-only pizza is. That's always a good choice. The... More

I've eaten at Dewey's many times and brought several people there for their 1st experience. The food is always fantastic and the service is awesome!

The calzone had 3 included ingredients not including cheeses. I had buffalo chicken, prosciutto, pine nuts, and added garlic. Mostly local beers on tap.

I think I've tried the pizza at Dewey's once because someone in my party ordered it. I can't bring myself to skip the calzones, they're just so delicious! They offer a wide variety of meats, cheeses, and veggies to stuff inside. I always get the pepperoni, mixed mushrooms, and kalamata olives in mine. Service is hit or miss. Sometimes it's... More

If you're looking for a pizza to satisfy anyone's taste, this is the place! They go beyond the normal pepperoni pizza with unique toppings. Looking for goat cheese or olive oil instead of red sauce? Maybe smoked cheese and salsa? These are just a few of the pizza topping options you will find here. My dining experience has always been... More

For some time, we have enjoyed take-away from Dewey’s Pizza, and today following lots of yard work I am able to convince my wife to accompany me to “Dewey’s Pizza Parlor.” Do not park on Jasper or Brown, because there are two large parking lots near Dewey’s Pizza. Street parking is inviting damage to your automobile. As we enter Dewey’s... More
