“great service, poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Waitress was delightful, but the food was absymal, what more can I say? Quite honestly I cannot think of 100 characters to write about this except that the pizza and food was overpriced and not very good.

“Terrible Pizza”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

My wife and I visited 2 Wives recently. We had a gift certificate that I obtained from a silent auction. The restaurant was crowded the night we ate there. There was no parking available in the limited spaces on the side of the restaurant. Therefore, we had to park on the street about a block from the restaurant. The restaurant was very noisy due to the crowded conditions. Our waitress was friendly, and we ordered a pizza. Unfortunately, it took some time before we got our pizza. When it finally came, it was not the type I ordered. The waitress apologized for the mistake. Maybe the crowded conditions accounted for this error. She told us to eat the one we had, and she would resubmit the order for the one we originally wanted. The pizza we got was cold, and it lacked sufficient ingredients. After waiting another 20 minutes, or so, our desired pizza arrived. It was hardly worth waiting for, as it was no better than the first one we got, cold and lacking ingredients. Based on our experience, I will never bid on another gift certificate from 2 Wives at a silent auction.

“Fancy Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

For those nights when you want to get something a little fancier than Domino's or a frozen pizza ... Two Wives is perfect! Their pizzas are delicious and their combinations are unique and help us to break out of our standard "pizza & beer" evening.
