“Bad, overpriced, mass produced, corporate food.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

What can you say about Boston Pizza... don't eat there? No seriously, don't eat there. You probably have already so a review doesn't seem like there is much point, but I really don't like these chain restaurants very much, so I thought a bad review was in order. Last time I went to this place, my girlfriend at the time wrote them an angry letter it was so terrible. Just stay away. Give your money to a locally owned restaurant, or at least a restaurant with tasty food.

“Excellent for parties”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The build your own pizza party was great. Not too expensive, great help from their staff to run the party, wonderful welcome in the kitchen where the kids put their own pizza's in to the pizza oven, tasty food, nice and clean. Can think of no down points.

“Delivery is worth considering”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We've never really enjoyed the boisterous atmosphere at Boston Pizza but we have started ordering from their online menu.

It's nice to have so many choices when you are hungry but want to stay comfy at home. Their food arrives in quality containers that retain heat & flavour.

Our current favs are their wings and the Boston Brute sandwich.

“Owner (male) Unprofessional”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A middle-aged man who may have been the owner or the manager was acting very unprofessional, sharing resumes of potential employees with two other older men who were eating and drinking alcohol. Many of their comments weren't appropriate. I wouldn't let my daughter work there if he was the owner.
