“Good Food, Historical and Histerical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great pizza in an old Jailhouse. Loved it. The building has many historical features and the menu had many choices. You can have dinner in one of the original jail cells or sit in the roomy dining room.

Loved the pizza. Fun to see the history as well. All in all a great date night. Interesting history and great local flavor.

“Food was OK but service wasn't.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

It is an interesting property; full of history and in an unique location. The pizza was all right but told the waiter at the start that we were going to have dessert and reminded him once again later. The check was quickly left on the table with no offer of further food so we left. Wouldn't go back.

“Ghosts and pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Haunted jailhouse, pizza, beer... a recipe for a fun evening! The white pizza is absolutely delicious, the best on the menu in my humble opinion. While you wait, walk around to visit the cells and the "hanging" noose complete with trap door. Also, what a view! The Ohio River is gorgeous from the porch.

“Scrumptious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Their pizzas are out of this world and the staff is always so friendly and professional. I love their garlic knots and out of towners always enjoying touring the old jail (even the electric chair!)
