So many good times here...sad that one employee can dampen years of good times. Arrived at 11:01, no lunch, workin all day, and “Cary” kept pointing at the clock when I begged for “anything,” the kitchen was still hoppin, people running around....NO FOOD? Strange. What’s happening to America? Customer service is gone, huh? I’ve worked in this business 30 years and I’ve never said that to a customer or copped an attitude they were second class. “Go to McDonalds,” she said.
We love this place! – The food here is great and the service has always been good. Sometimes it's a little crowded but other than that it's a hit for us.
Edgewater Inn – Ya, went there on a Friday nite after the Rockies Game to grab a bite to eat, cause i was craving there pizza/beer but to our astonishment they had locked the front screen door and turned out the coors neon light but there where still customers still inside and it looked like it was business as usual, so that upset me that they locked us out by sending a message they don't want our service, and who ever heard of a bar taking a 3 day holiday break during the busiest holiday of the year, well thats the message it had on its screen door on the 29th-31st, well i just lost all interest on them, so they wont get my business,or my money for sure....
Crappy Service – Waited in a line that was out the door for 45 minutes. Not one person asked if we would like to sit at the bar and have a drink while we waited for a table. We sat ourselves down at the bar and waited for another 15 minutes for the bartender to even acknowledge us. Finally we got seated and discovered that we were seated before the folks that were waiting before us. How awkward is that? Took over an hour to get our two pizzas and one was soggy and obviously fell off the peel before it hit the oven since all of the toppings were on one side of it. The manager didn't even apologize when we refused to pay for that pizza. We needed to eat out after because half of the meal was disgusting.
This place used to be very good. I have recommended it to a number of people and am now sorry that I did. It really is too bad that I feel compelled to write this bad review. I will check back in a couple years and see if they have improved on their customer service.
Edgewater Inn – My family and I hadn't been there for a while. We should have known when we pulled up on a Friday around noon and there was tons of parking available. We sat in the bar and then realized there was a patio with a buffet. We should have stayed where we were (maybe). The buffet was pathetic, the cole slaw tasted like old shoes and the pizza only came about one every 20 minutes. I could have had a better buffet in my kitchen. What the heck has happened? That was such a great place to go. Maybe we should have stayed in the main bar, but that was pretty empty too. Sad!! We won't go back!!!
Good pizza-bad everything else – We ate at the Edgewater Inn on Saturday, May 2, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. We went early because we know it gets busy. We ordered the Howdy pizza. Because we know that the pizza takes awhile we ordered a dinner salad and a cup of soup. We asked for water twice. The waiter came back and asked if my husband wanted water too. Got the wine and beer before the water. After 45 minutes, I asked the waiter if he remembered that we had ordered soup and salad. He told us the kitchen was backed up. One hour afer we sat down we got our soup and salad. We were still waiting for our pizza when the waiter brought our check. My husband reminded him that we ordered a pizza, the waiter said he would put a rush on the pizza. Another 25 minutes. No offer of any type of compensation. I looked around and there was a line out the door but no food other than appetizers was being served to anyone at the tables. What is going on with this restaurant? Is it the disorganization of the kitchen and waitstaff? Two hours we were there. When we were leaving we remembered why we had not been there in a few years. We like the place, we love the pizza, we hate the inexcusable wait.
Jones'n for a slice – Had to move away from Denver awhile back but I still (and forever will) be Jones'n for pizza at the Edgewater Inn. Make mine a Howdy Special with plenty of tall frosty draft beer to go with it ! ! Great neighborhood spot that still gives me the feeling of Denver how it used to be.
Lunch Buffet needs some adjusting – I love Edgwater Pizza however the lunch buffet needs help - if you are like me you have more or less an hour for lunch. We went yestyerday and spent the majority of that waiting for a pizza to come out - then they only bring one for a restaurant full of people - mostly men! In my opinion, $11.00 for one peice of pizza, a salad, coke and tip isnt worth it.
Local place – Edgewater Inn is great. Saying this as a long time customer. They have really good pizza and it is VERY local. It has been over talked about becasue it is sooooo good. The pizza literally melts in your mouth. The sweetness is my personal favorite, the howdie is really spicy and the pinnaple and ham is really good. It is an Edgewater tradition to the people who live there. If you are looking for a nice sit down pizza place...dont know why would, dont come here as you will be sadly disappointed. This place is little and packs the people in, but it is way worth it for the pizza that you have to eat with a fork! My recomendation is to order the thin crust.
Overrated don't Understand its Popularity – I was telling one of my suppliers that the only halfway decent pizza that I'd found in Denver was Parisi on Tennyson and 44th. He said that he loved the Edgewater Inn. I wasn't expecting an authentic pizza like I might find in New Haven or New York, but I hoped for a decent neighborhood style. My wife and I went two times. First, the place is always busy and very noisy and very working class. Let me really emphasize the noisy. Service was poor both times. Pretty quick to greet, but nothing else. We ordered the sweetness on the first visit and found a too thick and uncooked crust (crisp on the outside but about 3/8" thick in the center with the top 1/2 raw because the oven wasn't hot enough, the crust was too thick, or there were too many ingredients--or all of the above. We waited a few months and decided to try it again, but to order a pizza with fewer ingredients in the hope that they'd get the crust done at least. We sat on the patio this time because it seemed quieter. It wasn't. Service--well when the first burned pizza came out after 45 minutes, we didn't even get and apology. I called the waitress back and asked if we'd made a mistake ordering when they were so busy. She said, "Yes, when I saw how bad your pizza was burned, I wondered what the chef was thinking, would you like a free drink to make up for it?" No, we'd like a new pizza. She came back a few minutes later and said we can do it in 25 minutes. I stayed with my water and my wife with her iced tea. 25 minutes later we got a near raw pizza, which we said was fine. We didn't eat much, paid for it--and tipped I'm ashamed to say. We've spent the last two days home and sick. My vote is to stay away unless this is what you think good pizza is all about.
