“Not what it use to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Have not been there in about 3 years. Pizza was OK. A typical greek pizza. Meatloaf entree was just OK. It was not soft. Mashed potatoes and corn were just warm and tasted like leftovers. Don't bother with the salad option. Try a soup instead. Tasteless iceberg lettuce, 1 olive, several onion pieces, and a quarter sized piece of tomato. The future does not look good when they were 3/4 empty at 7pm on a Saturday night.

“Greek Style Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Used to be my favorite restaurant in town, but new ownership and slight changes has taken away some of its spark. Still uses some of the original recipes and ingredients, but not as consistent in quality.

“Gone downhill since change of ownership”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

When the original owners ran the Pizza Palace, you could count on fantastic food, consistently. Our office is just down the street from them, so quite often we will buy staff lunches there, everything from Grilled Chicken Salad to Meat Lovers Pizza to Fried Calamari to Tuna Sandwiches.

The new owners really pared down the menu. They offer a lot of the original items, and even though it looks to me like a lot of the same people are working there, I can't tell if that means the kitchen staff, as well.

The food is bland, it's soggy, it's cold, it's tasteless. They still do an okay pizza, but don't bother with the rest. Very sad, as it's so easy to pop there to pick something up. If they didn't have such an established customer base from the previous owners, they never would've made it this far.

Don't bother with this one.

“Good meal for the most part”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

The staff is awesome! The place is clean. The food has changed a little since they changed owners. The quality and in some areas quantity has lessoned, like the french fries are horrible frozen things and the lunchtime free soup is good but you get so little of it now, why waste the cost of the container. It's a great family restaurant at reasonable prices. The italian food is good though some of it is like no italian food I've had ever. Burgers are equal to a diners but the fries stink. And burgers shouldn't have shredded lettuce.
