I have been going here for great food for about 40 years. You can't beat their Italian beef with peppers mushrooms and cheese. Their pizza is great too.

We used to go here often but had not been here in a couple of years. We stopped in late one night, around 8:30 and ordered a pizza with cauliflower. Both were excellent tasting and hot.

Haven't had anything other than the pizza so I can only go by that. The pizza is good, my only complaint would be they use canned mushrooms instead of fresh, it's just kind of a big deal to me. Service there is really good!

Went there as a family on a not yet busy early week-day evening. Service obviously was fast but other clients were served fast as well when it started to fill-up slowly.

Just as good as always! We haven't been to Pizza House in years since we moved but all the food was just as we remembered. We took our boys for the first time and they loved it! The beef&cheese sub it the best, I don't think I've ever had a bad meal here!

The BEST! The crust is perfection and they load their pies with cheese! I recommend the House Special. We get it without pepper but add Canadian Bacon. My husband loves the Gyro.
