Pizza was great and menu is moderately priced. Staff was friendly and accommodating. They have a broad menu as well.

Their pizza and pasta dishes are great. However the place is so loud you can't even hold a conversation. Prices are average. Lots of kids which adds to the noise level.

A nice place, kind of loud, more sports bar than restuarant but good food, pizzas are very good and the sandwichs are varied and good. We eat there about once a month depending on our schedules. You can sit up at the bar if your alone and get fast pleasent service.

if you looking for somewhere local to hang out after work and have a drink, you need to try Empire. They have a great atmosphere and it's where the local's hang out. You can get pizza by the slice which is great also. All of their food is EXCELLENT!!!!

Place was recommended by a coworker. The place is economical in its decor. It is a bar on one side, and a pizza counter on the other. There you have it. 2 of us for a beer each, wings and a Stromboli to split. For a total of $20, we had a decent meal and a cold beer. I selected... More

We were looking for a good pizza while visiting Rock Hill and we found it. Being New Yorkers we appreciate a good pie and Empire Pizza didn't let us down. Took the meatball pie and a 2-liter Pepsi (a natural pairing) to our hotel room and enjoyed it all.

We were greeted by a young lady who did not want to be there. So we were seated with a scowl. But then we had our server come by, Phylicia. What ray of sunshine. The entire experience turned positive. The pizza was done right and served promptly with a smile. The restaurant itself was clean and inviting, but like other... More
