Great Pizza and love that is a local chain. We had pizza twice in one week from Merlin’s both time my family said the pizza was some of best they has ever had. The slices are huge and piled with lots of toppings.

Really disappointed! Nothing special about it, way too much crust, not enough sauce or toppings...frozen pizza is better, giving 2 stars because they did get it ready quickly.

Best pizza hands down! We come here every single year during our annual Destin vacation. And then we talk about it throughout the year. Great pizza and great customer service.
