Nick waited on us today. I actually tried something different. Jamaican jerk chicken pizza on thin crust was awesome! The works was good as well. Nick was very attentive and our glasses were always full. Definitely will be back and may try something else new.

Cannot complain about the food and service. The wedge salad and avocado egg rolls were delicious. Hayley provided awesome service. My issue was the front of the house. Not very friendly and very disorganized- seemed to be not in a hurry despite open tables and frankly thought it was funny.

The selection of food was great and my Pepperoni Pizza was perfect! My wife enjoyed her BBQ Chicken Pizza as well. The best part of our experience was the service. The gentleman who was our waiter was very attentive and pleasant.

When we get over to the South Park area and in the mood for Pizza with a twist , this is where we head . Food is always good and lots of other choices if you don't want pizza. We have been going there for about five years and not once were we disappointed . I highly recommend this restaurant... More

I loved my chicken dish and my cousins really enjoyed their pizza but the cousin who got that amazing pear salad ended up with us picking at her plate. We don't have one in Upstate NY so next trip where there is one that salad in on my top ten list !

We arrived about 10 mins from close on a Sunday - and were welcomed in by the team. The manager came over to welcome us and explained they were close to closing, but not to rush - they'd just work around us. And he meant it - even tempting us with desserts. The pizza and salad we had were lovely,... More

The service I had no problems with. I found the pizza rather blah. I've eaten at magic mushroom which is much better for off the wall pizzas. I ordered the garlic chicken pizza at CPK and there were a couple things that weren't great. The basic crust isn't that good when I'm pining for the pan crust of pizza hut.... More

Stopped in here on a Friday night for some pizza. Service was good, and friendly, but the pizza just doesn't seem to be the same anymore. Haven't had CPK in a few years and I remember it being so much better than this visit.

My wife and I ate here while shopping at the mall. Although the restaurant was busy, the staff handled everything very efficiently. The atmosphere was great and our waitress was wonderful, ensuring we were well taken care off. We ordered a large Moroccan Spiced Chicken salad and a Roasted Artichoke and Spinach Pizza, with added pepperoni. Both items were fabulous... More
