We had the lunch pizza and salad dip and it was very tasty. Our kids loved their food from the kids menu as well. We will come back again!

My wife and I have come to rely on CPK for times when we must be in the area of Ross Park Mall. We fall in that portion of the world's population that prefers very thin, crispy pizza crust, and we don't often find it done to our liking--and CPK does it nicely in our opinion. People, and restaurants, can... More

I order the sausage, pepperoni, and mushroom pizza, my wife order a Waldorf Salad. Both entrees were fine. The restaurant is located on near an exist to Ross Park Mall. The... More

There were no seasonal or daily specials, which in the past had been available and usually good choices. They also eliminated the long-standing peach salad from the menu, which had been a good standby. Had the half-size roasted veggie salad with chicken added. The artichoke pieces were very coarse and tough. The chicken was kind of weird - can't quite... More

Stopped in for lunch in mid afternoon while shopping at Ross Park Mall. It was extremely busy and we had a 5 minute wait to be seated. Our server was very attentive. The food was very good. I had a new offering - the garlic chicken pizza. As a garlic lover I found it to be quite good. We also... More

Stopped in for lunch during a holiday shopping spree. Service was pleasant; food was adequate. Most notable was the pricing...two small-ish pork tacos and about 6 chips for $12. My half salad - which was a good small portion - was around $10. The server asked us both if we wanted avodado, which we did, and then found it was... More

Great large portions and great service at this CPK. Located in the Ross Park Mall so also great to add to your shopping day. Service for lunch was great. Salad was huge as was the bowl of soup. Server was attentive and offered gift card options. Will be back to this one.

The CPK has great food. The quality is consistent and the menu offers great variety. The restaurant itself is gross. On our visit today, we sat outside. The party next us had a screaming baby. The mother chose to bounce her crying child next to our table rather than disturb her own party. The mother then decided the baby need... More
