“Great Pie!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Great variety of pie that is fresh baked throughout the day and very tasty. I have tried breakfast on a few occasions and I would say that you should stick with just the pies. No atmosphere but great pie!

“The people spoke - and got it right!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I crowdsourced a place to have a very late dinner due to a flight that was scheduled to arrive late Friday night. This came out as the winner of my poll. The plane actually arrived early Saturday morning and I ended up having breakfast here. Chicken fried steak and eggs hit the spot. Iced tea was strong and in a huge glass that got refilled! Service was all right. Would do again.

“House of Meh...”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We asked the hotel front desk about a good breakfast place and this was their choice. I was excited to see a wait since that denotes quality service or food. It was busy but the service was as forgettable as the food. I ordered a slice of peach pie (even though it was breakfast), the pie was well below Marie Callendars standards. Overall I felt House of Pies was over rated.

“A pie choice for every pie lover”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stopped here specifically for the pies. They do have a full menu but the pies was for us this day. And what a great choice we made by choosing the House of Pies. The pies were all fresh and very, very tasty. I has chocolate meringue, my wife had lemon meringue and we loved them. If in Houston and you see House of Pies stop in and enjoy a fresh pie. Yummy.

“Didn't live up to expectations”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Very disappointed in the pie and coffee and the service wasn't much better. The hostess was friendly but not the waitress. The coffee was very bland but we were most surprised by the pie. The lemon meringue looked and tasted like it was made from canned filling and the crusts looked store bought also. The fresh peach pie was the biggest disappointment. Our group of four assumed that meant fresh peaches cooked and made into a pie. But instead it was what looked very much like nectarines sliced, uncooked and put on top a crust. To top it off the fruit was not ripe. The carrot cake wasn't as bad, but had more icing than cake. The one plus side was one of our group enjoyed the dutch apple pie. But that is not enough to make us return to this restaurant.
