We went as a couple on a Friday night. When we walked into the restaurant, I was under-whelmed with the decor... a bit dated. There were a few people eating dinner already, which was a good sign. It did get busier as the night went on. We ordered drinks right off... the Caeser was disappointing. I like a little garnish... More

3rd visit here and I'm done. First time not too bad. 2nd time, so so. This time, still lousy service. Hard to get a drink or even a refill on a pop. Which by the way, never did get. But really, the pizza they brag about....had literally hardly any sauce on it and it was so dry you needed the... More

Once a month a group of us from work attend this venue. The wings are awesome and the beer is cold. Good service with a decent atmosphere . The location is okay with ample parking and the menu has a good variety . It's an enjoyable family and friend roadhouse style restaurant with a helpful and friendly staff and good... More

So I can't really decide what sort of place this was. It calls itself a pizza place and the pizza that the kids had was really tasty. So... as a pizza place the food was good, the price "ok" and probably worth 4 stars. The place also advertises a "Cajun Kitchen". As far as this goes, the Jambalaya was bland,... More

I haven't tried all the restaurants in Paris, Ontario, but this is the only place we have returned to more than once. The food here is delicious. My brother-in-law ordered the Fat Jacks Jambalaya (same as last time -- he loves it!) and his wife ordered The Meatless Mardi Gras Pizza. My husband ordered the Fried Shrimp Dinner and I... More

Servers were very nice. Food was good. 10 mins walk from downtown Paris main strip (there's a steep hill involved) lots of parking available. Items on menu were good and not overwhelming. Would have been nice to have some fried chicken. Had the angry gator pizza and shrimp po boy. Only complaints are that the water was awful, I didn't... More

Went with a rather large group > 15 adults/kids, found the restaurant okay, many found the pizza very underwhelming.

Went to this place for drinks and Karaoke. There seems to be an Identity crisis with this place. The atmosphere says Pub/Dive Bar. The sign says Cajun cooking and another sign says Pizza place. Who really knows other then the owners. I see how they stay in business the people drinking and doing Karaoke. The people were fun no issues... More
