I’ve lived in the Omaha,, NE area all my life. Council Bluffs,, IA is right across the river. I had heard of Pizza King, but never tried it. A friend told me about it and said “It’s way more than pizza.” What a nice place,...great food, great irises and great service! We met Kathy of the husband and wife team who have owned the place for 57 years. -in the competitive restaurant biz, you are clearly doing something right if you have lasted that long. There were 5 in our party, so we had a big variety of menu options. The fried ravioli app was great and generous. Filets, prime rib, pasta and meatballs, club steaks all great! 2 sides, salad and bread! Priced very reasonable, try the house Italian dressing, it’s amazing. Lovely dining room.More

Place was dirty with stains and lack of attention to basic details made this stay a total waste of money. Lack of customer service was the final straw to a overpriced dirty nights sleep.

Service, food, variety, and quality make this an amazing place to visit! I had the prime rib, kids had the chicken strips, also ordered a Danny Boy pizza and the chocolate cake for desert. Can’t wait to go back!

We had dinner twice at Pizza King in April and will be making return visits soon. This is a delicious and hospitable restaurant with the feel of an old guard steakhouse. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, the shrimp dinner was outstanding, and those who had...pasta enjoyed the meal tremendously. Our wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will be making this a local favorite😊More

Try to evaluate what a place is trying to do when rating. This place has been here a very long time. The decor is showing age....a makeover might be a good idea. We both ordered Fried chicken...a previous review criticized the chicken. I disagree. The...helpings were as large as ever before and the chicken was perfectly done. We both agreed and enjoyed our dinner. The prices for this is very much in line with other places we have been within the past year. Waitstaff is always young and think many a teen had here as their first job. The hash browns could use a ....not sure what exactly but seemed to be missing a special touch. We went in and sat immediately. This was a Friday evening and another place we considered on the other side of town was lined up. (We were in Omaha on our way home) so we called ahead both places. My concern is the Pizza King is being seen as Mom and Dad's place or my grandparents favorite. I would continue to strongly recommend it for dinner...NOT fast food....sit relax and enjoy your dinner.More

The quality of food has gone way down yet the prices remain high. We ordered takeout chicken and a steak dinner. It seems like they are overloading it with seasoning to try and mask the taste of the poor quality food. Our salad lettuce was...wilted, the tomatoes were mushy. The first time we had bad food we thought ok maybe a new cook or just a bad day, the second time we thought ok lesson learned don’t order this and the third time we ordered steak and chicken still poor quality. Third time of bad food equals goodbye forever. When you spend $30 on a steak dinner you expect a good quality cut of meat. This steak reminded me of eating Walmart meat not a nice upper end restaurant meat. The chicken was dry and also overloaded with seasoning, again it seems like they are trying to mask the poor quality meat.More

Best restaurant in town. Reservations help, but not necessary. Waitresses and waiters very friendly. Family owned business. Filet mignon great, fried chicken good. Huge portions, enough for lunch next day.

You will not find a better pizza around, great service and great food. The fish sandwich is tasty, gyro is really good, but you have to get a pizza! Danny's Special is amazing, a big fan of the Hawaiian with shrimp as well. Great for...carryout or dine-in, nice quiet atmosphere.More

The name is a bit misleading because this so much more than a pizza place. Though they have very good old country pizza they offer full meals. Steaks, pasta, sandwiches in a full service restaurant. The service is great too. I would recommend to anyone...and have.More

Excellent food, from Steaks, Shrimp and trademark Pizza (Danny's Special is the bomb!) The service is awesome and if you are in town on business and don't want to sit in the dining area, the bar has small tables with the same menu and it...has TV's to watch. I frequent this establishment and tell you that you can't go wrong!!More

This was a very nice place inside and the selections on the menu made it hard to choose. Three of us chose the Veal Parmesan and one chose the fried chicken. We were all very happy with our choices. The only complaint is the tables...are to close together. The next time I want to try their pizza.More

The food was very good, but the service was not! I made a reservation and after being seated we waited for 15 minutes until we found someone and asked them where our server was. Unfortunately the service did not improve. We ordered an appetizer and...it never arrived. We watched as other people came way after us and had their meals right away. It’s too bad the service was so awful because when the food arrived it was good. We will not return.More

We enjoyed the house special but got rid of the green olives and went light with the black olives. It was a very tasty pizza. We also had side salads and the booth that we were in was comfortable and quiet. The restaurant started filling...in around 6:30 but we were in and out before there was too much congestion. The parking lot is irregular shaped and you may want to drop off someone who needs assistance at the door. Service was very good but you should not go here if you are in a hurry. This is one of the oldest restaurants in CB and they have done a very nice job in keeping it a clean and attractive environment.More
