Davenport's has five, count 'em, five menu items: pizza, salad, beer, wine, soft drinks. Don't expect deep dish, feta, Thai chicken, arugula, cannoli, or anything fancy. Do expect good service, tasty traditional thin crust pizza w/ample toppings, and cold beer. They have a selection of local and national beer, and the mugs are so cold the head freezes. The decor...

My 16 year old son and a friend of his finished a tennis clinic and were starving. The three of us decided on Davenports and were not disappointed. One large meat lovers pizza with bacon was plenty of pizza for us. The crust was crispy on the edges and soft towards the middle. The ingredients seemed fresh. No complaints about... More

We went to Davenport's because it was highly recommended by a Birmingham local as "the best pizza in the city." If that's the case, the pizza in Birmingham is pretty bad. The restaurant was fairly busy, but we were seated right away at about 8:00 on Saturday evening. The service was a bit slow, but not altogether terrible. We ordered... More

I've lived in the Mountain Brook area all of my life. Pizza doesn't get any better than the Pizza Palace! It is the hottest pizza in town. It is made right in front of you and arrives at your table steaming. It is consumed quickly enough to stay steamy the whole time it is being eaten. The Pizza Palace has... More

We have been eating here since 1970. Always consistently good. Just Pizza and salad on the menu. These guys know how to make a Pie!! Game room in back with the classic games!! Great fun and great food. If you plan on going on a Friday night, expect a wait... Well worth the wait!!!

Fun place, lots of locals on a Saturday night, sixties throwback vibe ... but the pizza is no better than a grocery store frozen one. Minimal sauce, cheese tastes like processed, and they cut it into little squares like at a child's party. We asked for a shaker of oregano and they didn't have any - that alone speaks volumes....

Not sure why anyone likes this place. The pizza is ok at best but costs so much. Have to pay the Mountain Brook rent I guess. Never again for me...

I love going to Davenports! It is a great place for the entire family or just a date night. My boyfriend and I always get a medium pizza and a pitcher of cold miller light and it's our favorite way to end the week. The pizza is thin and soft in the middle and crunchy on the edges. I would... More
