Went for lunch for a team event with gifts. We were supposed to be at the planks in high, but since they had a fire we went to this one. They said they could accommodate our party. They knew it was a party and put us right in the middle of their floor. We had presents for and exchange so... More

I love this place and their pizza! Their sauce is a little sweeter and I think it makes it one of the best pizza places in town! I wish I lived closer to go more often!

Had dinner here tonight. Side salad with their homemade house dressing and a 14" all the way pizza which comes with pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, onion, green pepper, and banana peppers. Everything was very good. Crust is thin and you can tell it's made fresh, in-house. It has a pretty sweet taste to it, thought it was rather unique. Waitress wasn't... More

We used Plank's Pizzeria for an informal rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding. Being from out of state, I had to rely on phone calls to make the arrangements. We had around 40 people and it was perfect! Plank's made menu suggestions & had the pizzas & pitchers of beer & pop ready shortly after we arrived. They had the... More

My daughter is in Nationwide Children's Hospital for several weeks so I was in search of good nearby restaurants for my family and I. I turned to the TripAdvisor community for reviews. Plank's Cafe & Pizzeria met both criteria and we ordered pizza. Both pies were great. We ordered the White Pizza (garlic, butter, and cheese) and the Meat Pizza.... More

The sauce here was certainly unique and I thought overall the pizza was pretty solid. Nice family diner type atmosphere. I certainly would come back to try the pizza again.

Liked the building and atmosphere. Pizza was different. Not sure if I liked the sweetness or not. Prices seemed high. A pitcher of Miller lite was $11. A CAN of domestic beer was $3.75😳 and a can of Pepsi for my son was $2.25. When he ordered Pepsi we just assumed it would be fountain soda with free refills. So... More

Recently attended a high school reunion at Plank's. They provided pizza and salad in a buffet style. Food was excellent, plentiful, and constantly kept fresh. Wait staff was extremely helpful. Only problem was the noise level, and that wasn't their fault. We had too many people in the room. I would gladly go back there again!!!

It was OSU graduation weekend when we went and I had not thought about that before planning where to go for "date night" with my son. It was pretty busy and everything took longer than I felt it should. The atmosphere was unique. Definitely not a cookie cutter style restaurant. I love trying out new places, especially "mom & pop"... More

The pizza here is very good. It has a sweet sugar tasting sauce that is unique. We went just because we heard it had good pizza. However, we probably won't be back. The service was so slow. It seemed like they only had one waitress which was so busy and scatter brained that you couldn't get anything or it took... More
