Always good.

We usually come here around our birthdays because of the birthday coupon they send out and it's always good. The salad is good, pizza is awesome and the cheesecakes are great.

Service was very good. Pizza is not bad, slices are thin topping were spare but I still liked the pizza. It was pretty big, took some home, they had outside seating and it was nice out so it made it even better. I liked the outdoor seating option.

The portions are huge and the flavor cannot be matched by other pizzarias. You will not regret going here because you pick everything from the size, sauce, and toppings!

My husband absolutely loves the pizza here. He loves they use the old fashioned pepperoni as it reminds him of New York. Like they cut it off the stick. The pizza we got tonight had been misshaped by and they apologized that it was not a perfect pizza and made it satisfactory even though really did not need to. But... More

A friend and I went here while visiting from out of town. This Grimaldi's was much smaller than others I've been in but the service was very good and the pizza was amazing. My friend was in the mood to try a new beer and the bartender did a great job and took time to recommend one that she would... More

Walking up with 30 middle and high school students and 4 adults asking to have dinner here didn't shake them up to bad. The restaurant itself inside is on the smaller, quaint side, but they had a huge outdoor patio on the side of the restaurant leading to the mall which is where they sat our group. We had great...

This place has incredible pizza. The mediterrean salad is outstanding. A bit pricey but very good food. Wish the noise level was a bit quieter however great charcoal oven pizza is superb. Service is a-ok. Last visit we had to wait longer than usual. We go very frequently.

We usually avoid chains, even smallish chains like Grimaldi's. But I was glad we checked them out this trip! Service was absolutely outstanding--among the best we have had at any level of restaurant. (In addition to the normal things that made it good, they didn't get our order quite right, but brought us the "mistake pizza" and then the corrected... More

The pizza here is made over coals. It comes only in a New York style thin and crispy crust. The service was great and staff was friendly. It took awhile for the pizza to arrive but was somewhat a typical wait for such an establishment. Would recommend if you like coal crisped pizza. Seats are uncomfortable but dessert is fantastic!
