“Fun but get there early during snowbird season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Organ Stop is fun for all ages and great to take out of town guests to. Our young daughter loves it. I like their pizza but they have other menu items too such as soup & salad. We like to end with hand scooped ice cream. We try to arrive close to opening. In the winter when the snowbirds are in town, it gets crazy busy where you often have to wait for a table to open, even though the place is huge with two stores. The entertainment can't be beat with the huge organ and talented organist. They take requests and call out anniversaries and birthdays. Also the songs range from Big Band to Disney so all ages can enjoy. Usually one song per set includes cat marionettes, our daughter's favorite,

“What??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The whole place is about a one man band pipe organ, drums, ect... If you want good food then try somewhere else. Almost any chain makes better pizza than the organ, STOP PIZZA!

“Our favorite restaurant in the Phoenix area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

A member of the staff at our resort in Mesa recommended Organ Stop; and we were so happy we took her advice! The idea of eating pizza and listening to organ music sounded a bit bizarre when we first heard about it. But once you enter the dining hall and see the massive wurlitzer organ, you can't help but be impressed. And once the show starts and the organist begins playing, the experience is like nothing else I've seen or heard. There are flashing lights, hydrolic lifts, moving parts; it's difficult to adequately describe the experience as a whole. But it's a completely unique experience, and tremendous fun.
On top of that, the pizza was quite good, and the food and drink prices were very reasonable. Plus the staff was very friendly and helpful. I will recommend Organ Stop to anyone I know visiting the Phoenix area, and I definitely hope to return in the future!

“This is absolutely a must-stop when in the Phoenix area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The pizza here isn't bad at all, and reasonably priced. But lets face it, you're not coming here for the pizza, you're here for the organ.

The organ is magnificent. And the organist didn't cease to amaze everyone. In fact, we stayed for a full two hours, it was that fun. The organist plays for about 45 minutes each hour and then takes a 15 minute break. At the top of the hour the organ rises from the pit, he opens with a rousing number, then talks to the audience, inviting them to make requests. We got a few in right away but unfortunately they didn't get played over the 2-hour period (at the end he repeated one of the songs we heard early on, so I kind of wonder if the 'really' take requests lol). But we absolutely had a good time there. Wish there was a place like this back home.
