best in edwardsville

Food is excellent...great pizza, salads, wings and I love their mushroom soup! Large selection of beers and wine.The desserts are wonderful too! Just get there before 5:00 or you'll have an hour wait. The service is also great!

When they said the pizza special is "Italian beef with horseradish Creme sauce" I was sold and the guys at the table were thrilled. The beef was moist and shredded nicely but the creme sauce topped it off with the provolone cheese ! We always add wings as they are " the best in town " His place is always... More

Not only does Peel have the best pizza in the region, but their salads are amazing! Pizza topping combinations as well as salad ingredients are carefully selected to combine bright bold flavors that complement each other well. Choose from a variety of flavor profiles that won't disappoint. It's not often in life that you come across salads so good that... More

Friendly staff and lots of beer on tap. Your usual suspects and then the craft beers that make an evening out special. They also have some good wines. We decided in a small salad, involtinni, and a Italian sausage pizza. The salads have a nice mustard dressing, the Panchito involtinni with the cream sauce is the best. The pizza was... More

I built my own pizza, with artichokes, green olives, Italian sausage and pepperoni. It was one of the best pizzas I've ever had! Fairly thin, crispy crust and fresh-tasting toppings. I also had a house salad, which was HUGE for what I'm used to in a side-salad, but it was also very tasty. I tried the red wine flight and... More

The good: Delicious pizzas and dishes. Not so good: Cramped seating atmosphere, can be overcrowded both at the bar and at tables, menu a bit pricey.

The Prosciutto Involtini is an excellent starter and my favorite pizza is the Wild Mushroom. There is a wait every time I've been but that's just a testament to how good the food, atmosphere and service is here. The beer selections is pretty good too!

Peel has really good food. My rating is because carry-out food isn't offered, and it's so darn noisy.

Love the food here, but the wait can be a little long at peak times (Friday-Sunday). I would go for lunch or during the week to avoid the wait.

I can't imagine how this place gets good reviews. The prices are high and the quality is no better than anywhere else. I'm never going back. The final straw was after paying $15 for a pizza for one person they charged me extra for parmesan cheese. That's just cheap.
