Every time I visit here to eat it's always the best experience.... And by far some of the best thin crust pizza I've ever had...

There is a great variety of food and drink besides just pizza! But of course the pizzas are great!
Our service was attentive and not over-reaching. Brian was our excellent server.

I am a regular at Pizza Man. I ordered a large pizza to split. The server wrote down all the CORRECT things I wanted on my half but when the pizza came it was missing tomatoes. I was disappointed but the pizza was very good.

When we checked in for our reservation, the hostess told us our table was being set up. 20 minutes later we were seated in a dark corner. During the wait I asked her if there was any where to sit...she waived her hand towards the bar (which was totally filled with people)... and waived her hand and,said you can sit on the bench. The bench was,filled with people.
In the dark corner we had to use the phone flashlight to see the menu. We ordered a glass of wine, that took 20 minutes to arrive at our table. We ordered cheese bread appetizer, and we were told we could order a 6 piece or a 12 piece. We ordered the 6 piece.....again over 20 minutes to get the order.....then there were only 5 pieces all of which were strewn in the basket, sticking together. After about another 20 minutes, the waitress stopped to ask how it was. I told her there were only 5 pieces and the basket was a total mess. We sent it back.....the waitress was haughty about our refusal to have the bread...but she took it away and I asked her,to remove it from our bill. In a few minutes, she cam back and stood behind us and said loudly “I took it off you bill. “
The Margarit pizza was delicious.
It’s interesting that when finished eating they take away the pizza pan, but,leave the pizza bracket on the table....it’s in the way. We ordered dessert and it was delicious....but the the darn pizza bracket was in the way....never removed from the table.
Bill was expensive for a “pizza joint”
Our experience was awful and we will not be going back. All the workers,had a terrible personality. Not what we expected after reading reviews...we just won’t go back there,again. (Pizza was very yummy however).

Thin crust is way to thin, not much topping put on pizza.

The food quality is not premium for the prices one would pay. It can be quite noisy and packed during peak hours, and the food delivery to the table could take longer than desirable.

They have the standard sausage and pepperoni pizzas, but also some amazing non traditional pizzas. The white pizza is my favorite.

I enjoy Pizza man! The food is good. The staff were nice. My only complaint is there are several rules for BOGO Wednesday: dine-in only, only large thin crust pizzas, no pan crust, no doing 1/2 one kind and the 1/2 another kind on the same pizza.

It was a Saturday night and our food took over 30 minutes. The ribs were underdone. Part of the rack was falling off the bone...the other part I had to wrestle with. Our waitress seemed irritated and short with us. Everyone has a bad day but it was borderline rude. Nothing like the old pizza man I remember.

The restaurant was not busy but for some reason our service was very slow. It took over 20 mins to get our drinks. We had other plans after lunch so had to tell our server we needed to be out by 1:00. Food ended up coming out quicker than drinks did. Can’t imagine how long it would of took if it was busy!

Consistently good pizza, which is what brings us back. Popular spot, sometimes difficult to get in without a reservation during prime weekend hours, So it’s more helpful to plan ahead rather than to just pop in.

We had 4 different pizzas. They were all very good except the chicken pizza was not so good. My neice and
Split the pizza and both thought the chicken had greasy look and a odd taste. If you took the chicken off the pizza was good. But we would go back just not order the chicken pizza.

Great food and service. Wasn’t happy that some of our guests were locked out while we were paying the bill. When asked why we were told they were now closed. We had a group of 15 and that’s not very professional.

Everybody gets the thin crust, but you should try the pan pizza sometime. It’s excellent. Also, I’d like to see a few more beers on the beer list, it’s pretty pedestrian.

It was our anniversary and we were sat right next to the bathroom - super romantic. Our server wasn’t very attentive and it was just a disappointing experience from the start. Wish we would have gone somewhere else.
