do they have a website? I found a menu online but I don't know if it's up to date. It says they do gluten free (fingers crossed) so I want to know if they still offer that option. thanks

He's promised to put up a new website soon. Hopefully, he'll send out the word when it's up. Give him a call. He loves to hear from his customers. (503) 363-4638

Yes, I know for a fact that they do gluten free.

Went there the other day with a group of 7 people only to find they were mysteriously closed that night. With all of us standing in the rain, most of the people hadn't been there before and I was really embarrassed that I'd recommended the place.

Love the pizza, love the local beer, but I wish the tables were kept clean and the place ran a little more professionally.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. We have been loyal customers of Church's, among the first. We are recognized by face, as well as by order. We have cheered them on each step of the way. Enjoying a pizza with fresh, local ingredients, served with a smile and friendly demeanor. However, in the past months we too have pulled in to find the doors locked. On a Saturday in the middle of the afternoon. Disappointed, we went about our other business and drove by yet again, a hour plus later. Still no one in sight, but another customer peering in the window and giving the door a try. This has happened no less than three times. You should not have to call a business prior, to make sure they are open during posted business hours. This is unacceptable. Two weekends ago we gave it another shot. It was a hour past opening, not a pizza was made. We ordered a whole pie and waited as excuses were offered. As we looked around the tables and floor were even filthier than the last time we had ventured in. Cheese and pepper containers nearing empty and grubby beyond belief. Even the pizza seemed but a former glimpse of itself. I pondered the question- What,with so much potential, had happened to Church St. Pizza? I wish them well, but they need to turn this around or there will not be a second year to celebrate. Sadly, we will not be back. -Andrea

I hear you. I too love the two men that run the place and the food but struggle with their poor communication. I will keep trying though. I think they are just spread too thin and don't have the business volume to be able to hire a 3rd person. Their 1 year celebration was packed though and everything seemed to be going smooth. Hopefully, they can get back on track. And just as a note, the new additions to their menu are pretty delicious. Their warm, fresh bread and very-garlicy hummus is awesome and the calzone is something they really should have started long ago and was perfect for me and my friend to share.

We walked in a while ago, and there was no one to be seen. We stood there for a few minutes waiting for someone to emerge from the back, and then we noticed the very dirty floors and general unkempt appearance of the place. The pizza slices looked like they were sitting there for hours. We left.

In the past, we had nice conversations with the owner, and the pizzas were good. We also really liked that the owner would go to the farmer's markets and make pizzas from the ingredients he purchased.

Stopped in on Friday and not only was it packed but service was quick, everyone there seemed to be having agood time and the owner have others helping. Perhaps he has turned a corner, at least on Friday nights. Fingers crossed.

I've had good experiences and bad. I've been bummed to find the owner more interested in giving beer samples to his friends than waiting on me at the counter. Time to move on from the frat house feel the place tends to have...

Ian, I don't know what's been going on with you, and it's none of my business. But here's what I do know: It takes courage to stand up and take it on the chin offering no excuses or "look what happened to poor me" soliloquies. I've always gotten good Pizza and good treatment at Church ST Pizza. I'll be back.
