My boyfriend and I went in on a Saturday afternoon around 4:30, hungry and looking forward to a meal. I hadn't eaten there for years but occasionally order pizza to be delivered at work. I will not any more!\r\nWe sat down and were completely ignored. Not even one instance of eye contact from any of the workers. It wasn't that crowded at all. We waited for 15 minutes and left in disgust. Great way to treat your (potential) customers, guys.

Ordered two large pizzas for delivery downtown - gave a phone number to call when they arrived. We had to call looking for our pizza. Said they couldn't find the place and we had given them the wrong number (really? you didn't write it down wrong, maybe?) No offer to correct the situation - so not a fan of the service

Unfortunately, the pizza is relatively good. However, the entire restaurant sucks in general. I work in the ER at a local hospital. We called in over 10 orders for well over $120. When they delivered the pizza (which took an hour and a half!) we discovered they charged every individual order a $2.00 delivery charge. I called the restaurant and they said that was customary - even though every order went to the exact same place with the money ready at the front door when the delivery guy got there. \r\n\r\nThen we found out that the delivery guy does not get any of the delivery charge Plank's rips off of it's customers. \r\n\r\nBecause of their ethical behaviors, I will never order from Planks again. Much better pizza around town where the joint doesn't rip you off after already charging you too much for what you get!!!

Pros: FOOD IS OKAY

Cons: POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, RIP OFF CUSTOMERS

Great Buckeye hangout. I love the owners who welcome you in a friendly manner. The pizza is great and you can get homecooked meals from a steam table. The place is really clean and well kepted. I love the ambiance.

Pros: Best pizza; plenty of parking; and fun employees

Fresh ingredients, great meats and a sweet crust/sauce(I don't know which it is that's sweet). Their pizza is the best in Downtown Columbus. If you're a buckeye fan, you have to go atleast once. You'll most likely go back too. I try to pick one up atleast once a month and it's a 20-30 min drive for me to get it. Well worth it though. The sweetness of the crust/sauce combined with the spiciness of their pepperoni and sausage is awesome. If you're looking for a place to get some pizza while you're down there for a game or event, make it a stop.

I just wanted to share with everyone that we had the worst service at Planks this past Saturday. We had company in from out of town and my husband and I had been bragging about what a wonderful restaurant Planks was. So the 5 of us went. Two and a half hours to get 2 pizzas and a sub. The waitress was horrible. She gave our food to someone else. Told us but never did apologize for it. She said she would pay our bill. Then brought us two checks, charging my sister$15.95 for an Italian sub. They made the correction on the prize but only took one pizza off the bill. They were busy but not sold out. I was very disappointed in my visit. Not sure we will be back:(

I really like Planks Cafe and Pizzeria. They have a sweet thin crust and their sausage is to die for. I have heard that they make the sausage themselves and that is why it is so good. Definitely recommend this place for pizza and subs.

After moving to Kansas---and discovering the pizza gold mine that we had in Planks---their pizza is the best! You don't realize what you have until it is harder to get to! Every trip back to our home town includes at least 2 stops at Planks! A must visit place- especially on Tuesday evenings.

Pros: food, price, atmosphere

Cons: parking

Planks is a great place to eat with a fun ambience. Prices are good, with Monday night specials being hard to beat! Stick with the classics though, like the pizza or the nightly specials. The a la carte menu is very scary, with tacky presentation, disgusting coney dogs and outrageous prices.

PROS: Good ambience and prices.
CONS: Scary menu items.

Plank's pizza is to die for. It has a slightly sweet crust and lots of pepperoni. Unfortunately they don't deliver to my house now that we've moved but sometimes I get the urge for their pizza and make a special trip!

Inside the restaurant is kind of a sports bar atmosphere. There's a smoking ban in the city so it's not smoky in there, thank goodness.

Probably the best tasting pizza that I have had in Ohio...which isn't saying much because Ohio pizza is horrible. Nice place to go to eat.

Definately one of the best pizzas in town. We always get ham, pepperoni, hot peppers and mushrooms. I absolutely hate mushrooms, and this is the only pizza I eat with them on it...great stuff!

I absolutely love Plank's. They have great pizza (some of the best I've ever had!! especially the pepperoni), great decor, and great atmosphere. There's a certain friendliness there that is hard to describe. The food is not too pricy, they have plenty of drinks at the bar, and my family always goes there to have a good time when we all get together. I definitely recommend it!

Planks has the best pizza in town, hands down. Where else can you get Beer in a can and a great pizza for next to nothing. Fraternizing with the locals and the staff is always fun, and it is definitely ""come as you are""!
