The food was decent & staff were friendly, can't complain. Had to wait a while for a table & our food but it was a busy night, that's understandable. My chief complaint, oddly enough, was the acoustics indoors. You could hear every word spoken at...the other tables in the small room where we were seated. My biggest regret is not asking to be seated outdoors on the patio, which looked beautiful & lively.More

Great pizza and a dog-friendly patio. They do not take reservations. Parking on the street is free after 6pm. Friendly attentive staff. Kids loved the kids' pizza. 4 kinds of pizza came to the table... no leftovers! We'll be back!

We had a late lunch after we arrived from boat. Location close to dock and has lots of trees so we were comfortable sitting outside on a hot day. We shared a pizza and ceasar salad which were very good. Very limited menu though.

This is our second trip to Purple House for lunch and didn't disappoint! We had a couple of different pizzas and they were all good. Happy that they provide a vegan cheese for someone in our group who is lactose intolerant so nice they too...could enjoy a pizza. A funky little gem in Gananoque with a simple but good menu.More

Good location, very close to the City Cruise line. I love their dessert, pizza is very good too, but not many choices other than pizza. Price is a bit more expensive than I thought. We spent appx. $87 including tips for two small pizza (10...inch), a small dessert (for 1 person), a small salad (for 1 person) and two can pop drink.More

Busy but worth the wait! We enjoyed 2 fresh flavourful salads (Caesar, green) and shared a wood-fired margarita pizza - all delicious & fresh. Patio nestled in vegetation manages to be quiet & intimate despite being so close to the ferry dock.

Best pizza and salad we have ever had. I have a gluten allergy and have never found a good pizza, this was an amazing crust with top notch toppings. My husband had the steak pizza and loved it as well. Definitely see why it was...highly recommended 😊More

Bad pizza but great setting. Despite the lovely setting and wood burning ovens, the pizza was no better than a $5 Dr. Oetker frozen pizza with hot dogs as sausage and a crust that was just bad. $20 single serve pizzas.More

Cute little place. , we ordered a pizza and salad, we starting to notice 3 tables getting their food before us. We asked the waitress, she said it is due to how busy we are, which had nothing to do with other tables being served...before us that came after us. Karen friend came over to ask if we want it free salads we finally said no thank you it's too late. After about a half an hour she decided to just go ahead and bring us a salad anyway and said it was on the house finally after an hour and a half we got a pizza then we paid our bill and unfortunately didn't notice until we got back home that she charged us for the salad after all that.More

Lovely staff, great pizza. Had to wait 45 minutes for a table but would do so again. When left two hours later people were still trying to get in. It's a nice area. Leave your name, go for a stroll, enjoy the views and come...back for your table. It worked for us.More

Upon my first visit to Gananoque, I refused the idea of waiting in line more than forty minutes for a pizza, regardless how good may people say it is. This time... we had our names on a list and gone for a walk, awaiting to...be contacted. As they prefer large groups and we were only a couple of people... For one hour and a half... even if we returned a few times to check on the status, there was absolutely nothing available. Eventually... we gave up and cancelled our reservation. I am pretty sure this situation can be improved, even without rushing customers to finish their food. My suggestion - which would minimize frustrated potential clients like us - would be to dismiss people from the beginning when the place is packed rather than leading them on with false hopes of "half hour availability" as we were.More
