Visited with family of 5 on a Friday evening in July. Crowded but got a table in the bar area right away. Great service and great pizza.

I really liked that you can choose your own pizza size and toppings. The pizza tasted delicious, but there was too much cheese on it in my opinion. The ice cream tasted very good and the restaurant itself looked very local and nice.

John M, Owner at John’s Pizza Works, responded to this review

It's great that you're a big fan of our many pizza options. We want you to have the power to customize your pizza the way you want. However, I'm sorry to hear if there was too much cheese for you. Please don't hesitate to let us know beforehand - we'd be happy to make accommodations. But all that said, we're... More

They offer the usual assortment of appetizers and sandwiches in addition to pizza. There is a bar attached to the restaurant. The one... More

We've been coming here for years. Some people recommend Giovanni's for pizza, but having tried it on our last trip, we much prefer John's to Giovanni's.

Really, really good soup a la goulash soup. I did take asian style salads, family had Macaroni, meat lover's pizza and Caesar salads. The best what we got in US so far. Enjoy if you will have a chance to visit!

Good place with outside/inside seating. Pizza was pretty good and was out quite fast. Chill place, fast service.

Nice pizza but you order at a hatch and then sit down. Beer prices can be cheaper at the adjoining bar in happy hour, which is a bit odd but can save a dollar or two per head

Thank David282xyz

Good to hear you like the pizza! We'd love to see you back again for another good time. Hopefully, you get a chance to try out our wings. They're a fan favorite, and I'm confident you'd like them too. All that said, thank you for leaving us a great review! Cheers, John M. More

Got really lake at our hotel and the only placed open after 10 PM was John's Pizza. So here we go. Ordered chicken parm and my boyfriend ordered lasagna. While we wait, I started observing the staff. One of the guys transferred a couple of slices of pizza into a plate. One of the sliced fell on the dirty counter... More

Food quality and cleanliness are taken very seriously at our establishment, so I'm very disappointed to hear what you witnessed during your visit. I want to reassure you that our staff follow all cleaning protocols, but I'll be regrouping with my staff to find out what happened during your visit.
