“No more gnats!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

In my first review of Pies and Pints I complained of a gnat problem. That's been eliminated. This is a great place to eat but it may be a bit overrated. The food and service are always top notch but there are some problems that are inherent to nearly all the downtown eateries and nightspots. (1) Downtown parking is a very bad joke. There is only one parking lot (Spyro's, $7 a spot, ouch!) that's convenient to Pies and Pints but it's owned by the family that also owns Adelphia restaurant and they will take the parking fee off your restaurant tab but only if you eat at Adelphia. On street parking is hit or miss with many viable spaces being reserved for service vehicles that don't service the businesses at the times those spots are most needed. This isn't Pies and Pints fault so call the mayor. (2) Crime. Never had a problem at P&P but there have been problems with rowdiness at closeby nightclubs spilling out into the street. Please note that this isn't a continuous problem, in fact it's pretty rare but if you ever are witness or a victim of a beating, stabbing or shooting you'll be shy about visiting that location again. Again, not P&P's fault. There needs to be more of a police presence at busy times in downtown. (3) Be prepared to wait a spell, especially during the 6 to 9 PM time slot. P&P may be a victim of it's own success on this one. (4) This one may seem minor but being a gorgonzola dressing fan, it's not to me or my fiance'. Please put two containers of this in with your large, to go, salads. One just doesn't get it done. Other than that, enjoy. It's a fine restaurant with reasonable prices, great food and huge portions. Oh, and the $5 to $10 dollar range stated on the cost is grossly wrong. That'll get you a specialty beer. Expect to ante up at least $30 to $50 for an appetizer, a few brewskis and a nice, large, delicious pie.

“Not your ordinary pizza!!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We had to make a trip to Hico, WV and wanted to stop on our way through Charleston at a decent food establishment. We found this one highly rated and was not disappointed. We picked the large pizza with two types of toppings... Half was the Black Bean while the other was the Chicken Gouda. Talk about fantastic... We truly enjoyed both types! We will definitely visit it again if we are ever in the area!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This establishment is fun; the staff extremely accomodating & the food was delicious. Our server recommended the pulled pork nachos - yum! We also ordered a pizza; & while the order was incorrectly done the manager came out with the incorrect pizza, explained the situation & comped us another. Very impressed! They could've just apologized & been done with us but they went above & beyond. Excellent food, excellent customer service. Loved the pizza, too! Just the right amount of crunch on the bottom of the crust & the toppings tasted fresh. If we visit this area again, I'd return to this restaurant.

“Good Pizza”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

My office workers and myself have had lunch here many times. They have a variety of pizza with unusual toppings and the regular favorite toppings too. There salads are large and tasty. We don't drink while on lunch, but my son has sampled some of the large and varied brands of beer. The ambiance is loud and casual. Service is usually prompt even though they are usually very busy.
