“food ok, organ concerts awesome”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

The pizza is pretty good, but you wouldn't drive 30 min for it. The facility itself is kinda dreary -- like an old German beer hall without a beer wench -- all long tables, seats 500+, cavernous, dark, no real atmosphere. Cafeteria-style service.

The only reason you go is for the organ concerts -- and that is reason enough. The organist plays from open to close with a short break each hour, and is very skilled. This is well worth the trip. Recommend going near opening or near closing -- to watch the organ stage rising from or lowering into the floor.

Note, it is cash only. There is an ATM in the lobby if necessary.

“Just a fun place to take the kids!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

My wife and I found the Organ Stop Pizza one of the best pleases to take the Grand Children. Its fun and exciting for Young and Old. The music is fun played by professional organist on a world class Wurlitzer Organ. We add the Organ Stop Pizza as a must to take all new guest to the Mesa AZ area. The food is good the atmosphere is fun. One warning though they do not except credit cards, cash or check only. Don't miss this stop!

“fun place, good pizza”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The organ playing is fabulous!! The musicians who play this beautiful instrument are incredible. The pizza is better than average. The only complaint I would have is the picnic table style dining. There are some tables with chairs on the sides but inhibits the view of the organ. Would also prefer to be "served" instead of the counter ordering and pick up.

Great place to take the kids for a dinner with fun entertainment, however, the pizza is just average - nothing special.

“Unique and entertaining!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We went here with a club for a private lunch. The food was average, good variety, but the real gem was the show! The organ is spectacular and the man playing it was informative, entertaining and flawless. It reminded us of the house on the rock in Wisconsin.
