A local watering hole serving pizza and pub food for years. Has a loyal clientele that keeps the place going for years.

I have been here many times over the years. I can't say enough about their pizza. If you go on a Saturday, you pay about 1/2 of the regular price for a pizza, I think it's 3-4 items for around $9 with tax. That's for a large deep dish and is ever bit as good if not better than the... More

I've lived in Troy 40 yrs now and the Gathering place has always appealed to me. I remember the old wood plank floors and the pool table, both gone now. Some years ago, an addition was added. Can't say I always got the best burger or the best pizza but 90% of the time I liked what I ordered. I... More

Food is not good.The pizza is flat out gross and the wings were the worst I've ever had. Selection of beer is a joke too. Atmosphere is friendly and service is good. Just don't expect much for entertainment.No music playing, half the TVs were turned off. This is a very local , low key bar and will have kids in... More

This place makes their pepperoni pizza like Buddies with the pepperoni under the cheese. I highly recommend pizza when dining in and suggest the special with salad & pitcher of beer. I only sit in bar area and my husband enjoys playing on their brand new foosball table!

Paul and I went to The Gathering Place last night. I past the building for years and never stopped in. Always heard great things from friends and coworkers. Boy was I missing out! This is a great place and prices are reasonable. I had a French dip with fries and beer. Paul had a chicken wrap with fries and beer.

We brought in 10 Friends who were in the area for the Tigers Game.. Just a total disaster last night.. We ordered food at 545, and they were bringing food out, one by one, every 10 minutes or so. 5 of us still hadnt received our food until after 7 pm, and by the time, it would get to us,... More

Born and raised in Troy, this was a family favorite since I was young. It is a bar, but kid friendly with all of the games. I remember going there when I was in elementary school and always running into my friends and their families. We would play games while waiting for dinner while my parents and my friends' parents...

Excellent pizza, good and affordable menu, this is a very old Troy restaurant, and it has not changed much, has the same small town feeling that it had before Troy became a city.

This place has been here forever. Food is okay, soft drinks are some kind of bar pop rather than Coke or Pepsi. Not our first choice when we eat out.
