For the second year in a row, I have gone to this location for appetizers, wings and pizza after a neighborhood clean-up. Always tough when you bring 20-25 people in on top of their normal business even if you arrange ahead of time. The Pub...More

Purple Pub is the same as it always has been. The best. The best food. The best staff and super affordable for a family. I've been going to the Purple Pub pretty much since it opened. Always the same great food and service.

Been traveling the 20+ minutes to buy our pizza here for 35 years. Our fav is (well WAS) the seafood pizza. It used to be fabulous, but now has very little seafood on it. The past year or so it's gotten pathetic for the price....More

There is a room in the back of the restaurant area which holds about 20 to 30 comfortably. There is no door or way to close it off but it can be reserved for a party. The staff is very accommodating.
