“Great Surprise”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I will admit that I had some fairly low expectations - how good can a pizza joint be in Highlands, NC? We stumbled into PizzaPlace just after our arrival and check-in, hungry and tired. Our pizza was made fresh, simple and delicious. Even our four-year old was happy - he thanked me for taking him for delicious pizza unprompted!

“Great family place”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This was a great place to take our 16-month-old for an easy dinner. The pizza was delicious and the servers were friendly and accomodating. It's a no-frills place, but we really enjoyed it and will definitely come back on a future trip.

“Not so great”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you are in the mood for pizza in Highlands, go somewhere else!
I love a good pizza. My wife and I each ordered our own pizzas, she made her with the toppings she wanted and I got one from the menu. It sounded great when reading the toppings that came on it, white sauce with tomatoes and artichokes and a few other goodies. It was less than appetizing when they brought it out and to top it off (pun intended) they put some of the toppings my wife wanted on her pizza on mine! My "white pizza" was very watery I'm guessing from the canned artichokes and tomatoes they used and it was seriously lacking in flavor. After paying nearly 30 bucks for two pizzas,most of which ended up in the trash, we decided to cut our losses and find our way to sunset rock hoping to forget our experience. Did I mention the atmosphere at the place is just as bland as the pizza? I would say if you were trying to find a good cheese pizza for your kids you may give this place a shot but you may be better off trying to find a pizza hut.

“Greasy Pizza!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We decided to try Pizza Place when the Brick Oven was closed that day. Our Mistake! Pizza was so greasy it soaked thru the paper plate it was served on! It was all cheese...but where did the grease come from? Won't go back!

LeeG1943,

We are sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience in The Pizza Place of Highlands. In March of 2012 the restaurant was taken over by new ownership. A few of the changes made are: the sauce is now housemade with different ingredients, the dough is made each day in house with less fat than previously, the cheese has been changed to a reduced fat selection, the toppings have been upgraded and the use of real plates is a mandatory feature. Since the review was for October of 2011, please come back into The Pizza Place of Highlands and taste our incredible pizzas, salads, sandwiches and sides. We look forward to serving you soon!

“Great pizza, great lasagna!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We ordered pizzas & lasagna there & brought them back to the game room @ Old Edwards Inn so our family could watch some Saturday night football & enjoy our dinner. Absolutely delicious! They are so popular that sometimes they are hard to reach by phone but don't let that deter you. Go in & order (extremely close to Old Edwards Inn).... Your order will be ready in no time!
