A friend of mine and I went for lunch. The bar and dining areas were clean. Superior server. The food was served piping hot but it lacked any discernable flavors. I could have made a better meal. At least I tried it. I won't return.

If you come to Lancaster for the first time Pink Cricket is a place that you need to visit. They have been a staple in town for decades and are best known for their pizza. They also have good sandwiches too but pizza is where it's at.

I spent many years as a teen and young adult in Lancaster, Ohio, and the Pink Cricket was a most favorite hangout. I absolutely loved the pizza there and the memories of it are all the more fond since that's where I went with dates... and friends... then new husband... and then young family of my own. So fast forward... More

The owners are the best too! Great salds and many other food choices! And, before I left town I ate another and... More

Honestly, there wasn't a thing any of us had that you couldn't make better yourself at home. We'll never go back...disappointing!

Food is good. Restaurant is very old. Not the cleanest place in town. Place gets busy service gets lax.

We go there at least once a month. We were there in July after a funeral with about fifteen of us. We were all happy with what we had and they have all became our friends and our always happy to see us.

My wife and I love pizza more than any other casual food, and we have eaten a wide variety of pizzas. Pink Cricket's pizza is one of our two favorite pizzas, and it's in a tie with another Lancaster location (Pizza Crossing). Try this pizza. I am sure that you will love it.

The pizza is outstanding. It takes a little bit of time to get your pizza but it is worth it. The sauce is a sweet sauce. Bread sticks are good to munch on while waiting for your pizza. Not a lot of parking here. Street parking is available on the street of both sides of the building.
