“Excellent Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Highly recommend the Green Lantern. Pizza is always great although service is spotty depending on when you go.

“Five Star Pizza and Service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

This is the fourth time patronizing this establishment at the Oakley location. It is for real! Great service, well trained staff. Pizza excellent . Most recently had a House salad side, which can be shared by two, and a small red sauce extra cheese pepperoni , mushroom and black olive pie. More than enough for two. Beer selection on tap great! Will be back!!

“Impressive service, great pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I've been to Dewey's (or carried out) a dozen-odd times since moving to Cincinnati in 2009 and keep coming back. I've never seen better service in a restaurant—the managers are to be commended for how friendly, helpful, clear, and consistent the staff are. It's also super easy to split a bill here, even when the table is sharing multiple pies.

Worst experience? One time the pizza wasn't ready in exactly 7 minutes, or however long it usually takes them to prepare a pizza (which didn't bother our table at all); the manager came over the apologize and offered us our pizza on the house.

Salads are also delicious, and there are always craft beers on tap. My favorite piza is the Green Lantern, but we also like Ryan's Inferno a lot.

“First time visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

This was our first time to Dewey's Pizza in Clifton after being recommended by a friend. Lots of choices for toppings and really liked the Veggie Pizza with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and more. The side salads were generous and a great complement to the pizza. Look forward to our next visit to try them again.

“horrible sauce, but good pizza if you don't get the red sauce”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

they have great salads, and wonderful pizzas, provided you do not dare to eat the burned-tasting, pepperoni-ish, spicy stuff they call pizza sauce. aside some other places in the midwest (nobody in the midwest can make decent pizza sauce), this is about as bad as it gets. it will leave a metallic tang in your mouth along with some burning.... and I can't tell if it's just the horrible taste or if they actually put pepper in the sauce. that said, whenever we get a pizza that does not have the red sauce (which we always do now), it's quite good! and dewey's has a really fun atmosphere. it's OK for kids IF your kids eat pizza (ours don't), if not, there is pretty much nothing else on the menu.
