“Behind Bars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

While attending a Good Sams Samboree in Brandenburg, KY, we came upon this pizza joint situated in an old jailhouse facing the Ohio River. While the pizza and beer were very good, it was the structure and view that made it a most remarkable stop. Although the main dining room had been added on to the original jail building, enough of the old structure has been retained. You can walk through the old jail and visit the cells. I'm told that on busy days, you can request to have your meal in one of the jail cells. This is one of those off the wall places you should visit and will never forget.

“Enjoy Pizza in a Jail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

There isn't much in Brandenburg, but when there Jailhouse Pizza is the place to go. Built inside an old jailhouse, this place sure is unique. The fodd was very good. All in all a fun place.

“Good food, RUDE and Snotty workers.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Ordered carry out. Girl who answered phone was short and rude. "What do you want then?" Well for starters, a thank you for calling and how may I help you would have been a good start!!! Second time been there in a month after not going for over year. It's not good enough to have to deal with the rudeness and snippy ungrateful attitudes.

“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.
