Great lunch special and amazing pizzas! Cozy atmosphere is date-worthy.


I heard and believed great things about this place, so I drove all the way out there to try it. The salad was good, the service was fine, the pizza was a bit of a disappointment. ...

The Pizza was a 6 out of 10 rating. 5/26/2012

The Pizza was a 6 out of 10 rating. Service was a 1 out of 10. My waitress was nice,,,,,,10 minutes after I arrived! There were only 2 other tables being served, One was a normal-looking family of 4, Other was an obnoxious table of drunk college punks who got great service. I placed my order for a small pizza and a (that means ONE) beer. Beer came 5 minutes later. What, is the tap handle that complicated? Pizza was ...well, it was pizza, by definition. l ordered a Hawaiian. Not much meat or onion. And the pineapple was tough and worse than canned pineapple. And then THOR came in and stared moving tables around like the Mr. tough guy he thought he was. Fat, grey t-shirt and tattoos, specifically an oval one on his left elbow. When I left, it appeared, at least by hi actions, that he was the manager. RUN AWAY! This place is BAD NEWS!!!! Digiorno is FAR better! Or basically ANYTHING in the HEB frozen section. The manager needs a serious attitude adjustment! Pros: null Cons: null more

A not-so-thin crust of deep-dish scorn. 2/1/2012

When first my eyes settled upon the faint visage of the ?Austin Pizza Garden?, glimmering like a dream-sung Olympus on the horizon, I could have wept with joy. I saw salvation for my wearied body that, at the time, was wracked with famine nigh unto breaking. I had struggled through a night of assisted insomnia and Bacchanalian over-indulgence that had left me exhausted, head sore, and desperately in need of nourishment. However, the first ominous chords of discontent echoed through the Austin air when I found the doors locked, despite the establishment ostensibly having opened five minutes previous, at least according to their printed declaration. I soon found that the written word means nothing to the Philistines at the Austin Pizza Garden. Their menu proudly declared an offering of ?Stromboli? which I was nonetheless denied. They claimed they had ?run out?, and yet they had just opened. Was this an odious untruth, or simply carelessness on the part of the staff tasked with stocking the day?s fare? In any case, my troubles were only beginning. I finally settled upon a small pizza, hoping my initial enthusiasm could be reinvigorated by the speedy delivery of the mortal equivalent of heavenly ambrosia. Sadly, that dream would, in time, die too. I waited for several minutes before being asked what I had ordered a second time. I waited while they ?warmed the oven?. I waited for as long as a man can wait. The seconds dripped away like ichor and with each passing moment my pangs of hunger grew and worse still, my soul withered with dashed anticipation, caught in a limbo from which there would be no harrowing. Pros: null Cons: null more

Worst Service Since I've Been To Austin 5/13/2010

I'm not one to write reviews, I never feel compelled enough to do so, however the service (and I use that word in it's loosest terms) in this restaurant was horrific. The entire restaurant was empty except for about 4 or 5 staff members who were gathered in the bar area reading and lounging around. When my brother and I entered, we were told that our server would be "right with you". Pros: None Cons: Staff more

Don't waste the trip! 12/13/2009

I didn't know it was actually possible to mess up a pizza....I could have done better in my own kitchen. First, we waited over 20 min. for service and had to go get the staff to take our order. They had numerous staff persons and only 4 patrons in the whole place. Many of the staff were gathered around the TV in the bar area. Once we ordered, it took forever to arrive to our table. We got the Collosus, it was dry (no sauce) and the crust was like cardboard. A Totinos from HEB probably would have been better. The high marks.... the building was a neat old historic building but they had a roaring fire blazing. So I had to sweat as I ate my pizza since they sat us close to the fireplace. The beer was reasonably priced but I'm not sure I got the Fireman's #4 I ordered. With the options in Austin, I would not return nor would I recommend this place to anyone. Pros: historic building Cons: poor service;bad pizza more

Delicious! Great price! 7/30/2008

I went here after a long day in the sun at Hamilton Pool. It just looked like some small, unknown pizza place, so our expectations weren't very high. When we sat down, it was so cute inside, and felt like a genuine Texas place. The pizza is freaking delicious, and they have $7 pitchers of draft Shiner Bock!! They're prices are amazing, and I can't wait to go back. Pros: prices, quality, cute Cons: none more

Great Building, Great Atmosphere, Great Pizza! 6/26/2007

I recently ate at Austin Pizza Garden with my boyfriend and it was fantastic. Waiter was great and very friendly, pizza (especially the cheese and crust) was phenomenal. I'll definitely be back soon, I want to try some of pie combinations they have on the menu. Pros: pizza (cheese, dough, fresh ingredients), ambience, price Cons: sort of out-of-the-way, but worth the trip more

Move over Gatti's! This is the best pizza in town! 3/30/2007

Wow! I was just in there tonight, it was busy. I got put on a waiting list for about 20 minutes, but we didn't mind. The host staff took good care of my party. They served us drinks at the bar and kept checking to see if we were alright, and they had a lobby full. Somehow they managed to keep everyone happy. We got sat and order drinks and had a good time. Our server was excellent! We ordered salads that came out as fast as the server could put the order in. It was just perfect timing! We had finished our salads and our server had given us plates for the pizza and said the pizza was getting cut and on its way. We had the #2, forgot the name, and a #5. Both were awesome! Very unique crust. None that i have very had before. My recommendation for those is to try the Austin Pizza Garden. It was a wonderful experience and a very homey pizza joint! Forgot to mention the ambiance that makes you feel very welcomed. Also it is said to be haunted which makes it a cool place to eat. I will be dining there again. more

Enjoyed the Lunch Special Pizza 1/19/2007

I recently ate lunch here with a friend. We both loved our pizza lunch "specials". I had the cajun which just sounded good and was well, even better than expected. The lunch size personal pizza was perfect. The service was very good and friendly. If I had a complaint it was that the salad was the "bag mix" variety which contained a majority of ice berg. The dressing was good though and overall we had a very nice time. Pros: Food and Service Cons: Iceberg lettuce more

perfect in EVERY way 6/26/2006

zesty, tasty tomato sauce topped with fresh, tasty (not greasy or overcooked) chopped veggies and delish chunks of hearty meats, topped with the perfect amount of mozarella (not too heavy but oh so tasty)...all piled on tope of a relatively thick, but crunchy crust. it really doesn't get much better than that (obviously we ordered some kind of supreme). the large for $18 wasn't all that large, but this pizza isn't to be swallowed, it's to be savored. the homemade oil/vinegar dressing was yummy....sampled and ok'd others homemades as well. great atmosphere (rustic, yet cozy setting). what a treat. this is the place and the way to eat pizza!! Pros: the perfect pizza, ambience Cons: mediocre service more
