Enjoyed a good lunch while doing some Christmas shopping with my daughter and husband. Tried the garlic knots and slices of specialty pizza. All yummy...one slice was enough for me! I would recommend trying this place...nice neighborhood place.

My friends meet twice a week at Pizza Joint. On Sundays there is trivia at 8pm. On Tuesday nights they offer pizza slices and a large variety of draft beers-all for $2.50 each so you can experience new beers new new slices without buying a whole pie! The pizza is NYC stye and lots of topping choices. The place has... More

I stopped here for a business lunch and really enjoyed the pizza. I haven't visited this pizza spot in a while and my taste buds enjoyed the reunion. I thoroughly enjoyed my slice of cheese pizza. I also had a slice of pepperoni pizza, but they were like mini pepperonis that were bubbled up when heated. I wasn't a fan... More

Been here 2 times with my family. Both times the wait was a bit longer than expected. The food was decent each time. Had stromboli and pizza. Good sauce! Unfortunately the last visit I used the restroom after eating before our long tide home. What an ugly and nasty sight! I'm sorry but I would not let my dog go... More

Generosity of portions is the watchword at The Pizza Joint, unique, flavorful, not so much. Large pizza slice in the lunchtime special with a half sandwich is probably enough for two. For one its a take home or a pig out. The pizza was okay as was the sandwich but there are better pizza's in Columbia. Atmosphere, service all good,... More

My husband is military and we live all around the globe. I am from NY and my mom is from Italy. We recently ate at a horrible and expensive "Italian" restaurant in Columbia so I was Leary to try another in the area. This place is inexpensive and the real deal! The food is all freshly made and soooooo good.... More

After trying the Pizza Joint in Augusta while visiting friends, I was so excited that there is one in Columbia. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I got a to go order with a salad, bread sticks, and pizza. The breadstick and pizza dough was dense, it reminded me of soft pretzels. Service was friendly, order was ready quickly.

I love this place! They have a good selection of draft beer and huge slices of pizza. If you like floppy delisciousness with a variety of toppings DO IT! They have a veggie pizza, white pizza, and buffalo chicken pizza so good you would lick the plate! And you can't beat the prices! The staff is nice and are always... More
