Great cream pies and good ice cream. Great for a summer evening treat. We enjoyed it a great deal after our meal. The line was out the door.

I had a piece of their strawberry rhubarb pie and loved every bite of it! The crust was the best pie crust I have ever ate and my mom makes killer pie crust. The strawberry rhubarb feeling was not to sweet but not too sour either. It was heated up and I had a scoop of butter Pecan ice cream.... More

I'm a bit of an expert on pie. Try it! Chunks of rhubarb, semi- sweet, fresh home made crust. This review is strictly based on that pie.

I had to stop as I'm a sucker for Strawberry Rhubarb pie. I was not disappointed. We stopped in later in the evening right before a large boy scout troup. The staff handled themselves very well knowing they were getting slammed. As for the pie selection...even at 8:00 at night they still had a variety to choose from. My husband... More

I was so disappointed by this place. That was for sure my once in a lifetime visit to that purple shack.SHABBY! SHABBY! SHABBY! The waiter was the worst ever not to mention the overly priced disgusting lunches. The floors were littered with flies constantly buzzing in my ear. Am shocked the health inspector still have this place running. All in... More

Well this review looks quite suspicious. Jessica lives in Custer and has never been to The Purple Pie Place? A town of approximately 1700 people. A pie shop that has been here since 1981 and has customers that visit from all over the world. A high rating with the Department of Health and many satisfied customers. More

Slow, Slow, Slow! The waitress took forever to take our order, and there aren't that many tables there. Once she took our order, it took a very long time for the food to arrive. We got it to go, and after a 15 minute drive, the food was still hot, so it didn't sit in the kitchen long. The floor... More

We are not a fast food restaurant with pre packaged sandwiches. All our menu items are prepared in the order they are turned in and we cannot make the food cook faster. Our dining room seats 43. Our Ice Cream Parlor seats 24 and there is additional seating for 60 on our outside patios and porches. We have had customers... More

If you love a good pie, as i do, this is a must if you are in the area. We stopped in based on the reviews here and were not disappointed. The sandwiches were good, but the pie was the draw! We had strawberry rhubarb, which seems to be their specialty, and it is served warm from the oven with... More
