This was my first time trying Prospect Cafe. Didn't get off on the right foot. I spent 1.5 hours waiting for my steak bomb calzone to be delivered, but when I opened the box it looked like it was going to to be worth the wait - sadly I was very wrong. The Calzone looked beautiful. Not greasy, the dough used less warm and light. And I was optimistic until I took bite into it. The dough actually was great and regrettably, best part of the meal. As steak and cheese goes, this was a colossal failure. I ordered "extra meat" but hardly any at all could be found. Mainly because the meat was overwhelmed and overpowered by the mountain of extremely raw peppers and onions. I mean the whole thing is as almost nothing but raw peppers and onions. When I did bite into steak, it was equally unspectacular. I am pretty sure I won't be giving them another chance to see if they do pizzas or other thing better, and yet I feel like the dough was so good, I could imagine that maybe that is there strength but as for calzones, that's a hard pass


The Italian subs are perfection and I also love the pizza and salad. I usually do takeout but brought family here for a sit down meal and they loved it.

We placed a large order of pizzas, salads, breadsticks, and desserts for Administrative Professionals Day. Everybody loved it! Thank you so much! I made sure everyone knew where we ordered from, and you will definitely get our business again. Have a great day!

I've called to place orders on numerous occasions( today included) and no one picks up the phone. When I've called I called for 30 mins and NO ONE ANSWERS! we've been good customers of Prospect Cafe for years and it's so incredibly disappointing to not get the food you want!

This place used to be one of my favorite. Since new owners have taken over it has gone way down hill.. the pizza and food in general i received was terrible sub par at absolute best. What a shame

Came here for dinner on a Wednesday night and was fairly quiet. After looking over the menu, decided to get the taco pizza, mozzarella sticks, and jalapeno poppers. Didn't try the jalapeno poppers myself but they were stuffed with cheddar and came with a side of ranch. Mozzarella sticks were pretty standard and had a nice stretch with a side of marinara sauce. We never had a taco pizza before so it was quite intriguing to eat. It had ground taco meat, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese, as well as onions and jalapenos. It was a sauceless pizza where the salsa came out on the side for you to dip or put on top yourself manually. Overall it was good pizza with a solid crust and super heavy on the cheese! So if that's your thing, def suggest the taco one.

This place went DOWN! Ordered from here all the time but recently I don't know what happened. Food was over an hour to get to me. Obviously soggy fries. Cold chicken. I asked for some extra ranch on the pizza and wow extra $2 I got charged for it. What a rip off. I would be so upset if the food got here on time. An hour okay but the time kept going and when I food arrive it was cold. SMH. Never again.

OWNER PULLED OUT A BASEBALL BAT ON ME (18) and my friend (19) for absolutely no reason we caused no threat to him at all and gave him 0 reasoning to do that. DO NOT GO THERE ANYMORE!

The perfect margherita pizza. Just moved here 3 weeks ago and we have already bought 5 pizzas from this place. Margherita pizza is the best, but I also really liked the eggplant parmesan sub.great sauce, fresh, high quality ingredients.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and ordered from Prospect 2 nights in a row. Large portions, arrived hot, and very friendly service. There are so many choices on the menu but I recommend the chicken tender dinner. The chicken was fresh, tender and delicious. I would absolutely order from them again the next time we're in town.
