Purple Pub is the same as it always has been. The best. The best food. The best staff and super affordable for a family. I've been going to the Purple Pub pretty much since it opened. Always the same great food and service.

Pizza is always a good bet here. We also both times get a hot open face turkey that comes with fries or mashed and cranberry (jelled) my favorite way. Not once had a bad experience with takeout service and always under 30 minutes for pickup....More
