Thin crust pizza. Good price. A nice selection of beer. We ate in the bar area. They have a family dining area. Nice and simple after a long week.

We ordered two large pizzas and one medium for eight people and both were available for pickup within a short period of time. We prefer thin crust which is what they are noted for and we were satisfied with the quality of the ingredients and taste!

They have a nice arcade selection to play. The pizza fries, poppers, & pizza that we ordered were average at best. There was full bar and good amount of beers on tap.

Their lunch buffet is reasonably priced and they are great at making sure the buffet always has a nice variety of hot, fresh pizza. Plus they include soups, dessert sticks, and salads. Nice place!

While I don't like the decor or atmosphere as well as their last 2 locations, the bar is nice for eating. It is still the wonderful pizza they've had for years!!

Pizza Oven has a noon buffet. They have about 4 different pizzas, breadsticks, 2 pastas, soup and salad bar for $8.99. You can get very filled on everything, but the pizza is only average at best. The salad bar has a nice assortment of veggies and toppings. That is probably the high point. The day I went, they had chili... More

As we love to play arcade games I figured we'd stop in and give pizza oven a try. Disappointed on all aspects. It took over an hour to get a pizza for my family and it was cold by the time it made it to our table. The arcade is nothing but a bunch of old games that are in... More

I came here to play vintage arcade games since Aftershock Retrogames moved their games here from Rossi's Pizza. Their pizza is pretty good but their wings are greasy, flavorless, really fatty and are disgusting! DO NOT order their wings! Also, the menu showed the wings as boneless but they were not.

It was a fun experience. Always a great place for a party. We had salad bar, pizza and ice cream. The staff was on the ball. It seem like the parents were at eased to enjoy their sons graduation party without no worries. That's the way it should be.

I picked up a pizza at 8:30 on a Saturday night. The whole place was pretty empty (hope it is not always like that). The service was great and the pizza was good. I am not a fan of sausage and theirs was good.

Thank jbzielinski
