They know how to make a good pie but the prices are ridiculous. I prefer to make my own - which are better anyway. Bring plenty of $$

We go there especially during the holidays. Love the mix berry pie and the chess pies. Owner is very friendly.

This is a small pie shop with really good pies, but really expensive. My husband is a big fan of banana cream and lemon meringue and they're really good here. But it leaves a hole in the pocket.

Their pies are homemade - most days you can see Patricia (one of the owners) working diligently in the bakery area. Good pie anytime of year but they really excel for holidays and special occasions -- where else can you get a real mince pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas? Not into pie this week - then try a cupcake: red... More

I spoke with Sherman. He gets a bad rap. Sure he's a bit gruff, but if you take the time to talk to him, he's very interesting. Anyhow, I am buying a pie, not a friend. Soooo.....I ordered two pies. Both chocolate cream, but one gluten-free. Yes they cost more than a store bought pie, but these are made JUST... More

Oh my God every time I have one of Sherman's pies I am just blown away by how good they are. Each time I buy one I think this one won't be as good as I remember. WRONG. These pies are truly The BEST PIES. I've had lemon merangue, triple Berry, pecan, peach and strawberry rhubarb. Each has been unbelievably... More

These pies are delicious! I can easily overlook customer service for a great pie. And not unlike most grumpy man if you make a point to be nice to Shurman he treats you just fine. And, hey, I want a great pie not a new best friend. I've had the coconut custard, chocolate cream, banana cream, and the pumpkin. Honestly,... More

I will never know what the pies taste like and quit frankly I do not even care. This morning November 27th 2014, on Thanksgiving morning, I went in to pick up a pie I ordered on the phone, on Tues November 25th at 10:25 in the morning. I ordered my pie via voice mail, but I like to make sure... More

Okay the pies are expensive and after eating one I was like this is everyone else's pie...I was wrong. I am having trouble eating other chocolate cream pies because they just do not measure up to this guy's pie (even on a bad day). My Dad likes the Red Velvet Cupcakes, but I have not tried them. We also had... More

Sure, most people don't bake at home anymore and have no idea how to make a pie, so perhaps they think $30 for a one of these creations is a fair and appropriate price. Folks, it's just an ordinary pie like mom used to make, nice crust and tasty, but nothing so special to justify the exorbitant price. Plus, proprietor... More
