I love eating at Pizitz! It's great for a group or a family when you may want to eat different options. It's so much different than a mall food court in that the options are ACTUALLY good. There's really no bad option and always a place to find a seat. Some places have their own seating, like Ashley Mac's.
Went here on a Friday night. There was only one place open, and they were blasting "music" so loud that you couldn't think let alone talk (there were literally giant portable speakers set up feet from the bar, pointed directly at it). I'm not really sure what the point of a food court is if they don't have a selection of things eat, especially when it's such an unpleasant atmosphere.
Love Pizitz Hall, its changed since the pandemic and a lot of new places are there that I cant wait to try. It's a welcome change for lunch or weekend hanging out. Had lunch at ona poke today. It's a little different from the Homewood location but same quality and good service. I will be back. price comparative- build your own bowl $10.50.
I've seen lots of advertisements for this place and was expecting too much I suppose. It's just a small food court, darker than in a mall, with a bar. Still, there's varied seating. Tables, couches, comfortable chairs. The bathroom was pretty disgusting though because it's a family bathroom and some man had used it before me and I had to clean off the toilet. Ewww. I got my beer really quickly, and the atmosphere at the bar is pretty good. Strange though, half of the places where you can eat were closed. The outdoor seating is really great though! The music coming from the speakers is loud however but that's the atmosphere they're going for. I didn't order any food so I can't comment on that. One great thing is that you can park in the parking garage very close to it and it's free if you stay under two hours. It's very safe. The entrance is across from the McWane science Center.
DON'T TAKE A NAPRICOT ON THIS FOOD HALL! Food Halls are always a great way for new and upcoming chefs to get announced. They might be small on the outside, but once word spreads about your amazing food and your amazing little vendor shop, then it is a good time to branch out and get your name known to a much grander audience. The Pizitz Food Hall is one of the more upscale food halls I have encountered. There are tons of options to choose from tacos, poke bowls, ramen, wings and many others. You will surely find something for you to enjoy. This food hall is located downtown across the street from McWane Science Center and is in a prime area. There are tons of businesses both small and large around this area and lots of the employees come into the food hall to get something for their lunch. Since I was here during the lunch rush, I didn't get the opportunity to see all that this hall has to offer, but will be back soon for sure. I got food from Unos Tacos and Edolyn's Pies. I got the chicken quesadilla as well as some chips with salsa and quest blanco, you can't go wrong with that order. It was fabulous. Had big chunks of chicken and you can tell that everything that they used was fresh. From Edolyn's pies I got a blueberry lemon chess pie for courtney and a pecan pie for myself, they both look and smell amazing. If you have not read my review of the pie place, you definitely need to. This food hall is the prime location for some of the places we have learned to love and enjoy. I can't wait to come back and experience more wonderful food and customer service. A+
Fun place with a variety for everyone! I had Red Beans and Rice with Catfish from NOLA, and my wife had a smoothie. Great location near the park--if you haven't tried it, or if you have a crowd that and it is hard to please everyone, don't compromise! Take them here and enjoy!
Love visiting this bar! Such a cool vibe and the bartenders are always great. The drink I had was gorgeous and tasty (although I seem to have lost the picture). It made for a really great end to a super long day.
My husband and I stopped at Pizitz on a Friday night around 6. We know the venue closes at 8 but we were shocked by how many store fronts were already closed and looked like they had been closed for a while. We watched several groups walk in excitedly only to leave disappointed as their favorite restaurant had already closed. Thankfully, a few restaurants were still opened at the time including the main bar. The bar was super crowded and busy. We stopped at the Mexican restaurant and had quick service with delicious food. I'd love to go back when things have returned to normal. It looks like all the store fronts are filled with a wide variety of food types. Hopefully, closing early, is only temporary for most restaurants.
I am giving the Pizitz Food Hall 4 stars because all COVID regulations were followed and enforced as well as everything was clean. There were also employees walking around maintaining the cleanliness of the food hall. I really loved the set up of this establishment. There is a full bar in the middle of the hall and along all the walls are different cuisine vendors. I saw food options from Jerusalem, India, Japan, etc. I chose to order from the vendor Ono Poke. I got a bowl that was filled with rice and topped with many different ingredients found frequently in sushi rolls. I would give the food a 7/10 as it was okay, but nothing super impressive for the price. I would be interested in trying some of the other vendors on different occasions. Overall, would revisit the hall, but maybe my taste buds aren't as fond of ethnic cuisine.
Robin was amazing! Met a wonderful stranger and shared a few AMAZING mojitos, again Robin was awesome!
This spot is amazing. Great location to stop in for some unique food options & have a drink at the bar in the center! Love it! We'll definitely be back
By Far one of my favorite places to drop in any day of the week the owner and all bartenders have extensive knowledge of spirits and beer on premises. This is without a doubt a hidden gem in Birmingham always a great time.
Such a great selection. We were about to have Vietnamese and Indian cuisine all in the same place. There was something available for all tastes!
Having checked in to the Fairfield Inn & Suite located around the corner from the Food Court we looked for a local restaurant to enjoy after a long day of driving. The hotel referred us to the Food Court. Upon arrival there was an excellent bar in the center of the food court and we took advantage of Happy Hour specials on margaritas at the bar called, The Louis Bar and our bartender and owner, Jesus was both attentive and personable. As we inquired about the various food choices, we learned he also owned Unos Tacos adjacent to the bar and we ordered a chicken and beef quesadilla's and found them both filling and enjoyable. We didn't plan to eat in a food court, but were happy to find this gem of a drinking and eating venue to fill our empty stomachs and quench our thirsts.
This food hall is an excellent addition to the Birmingham scene. Its a great place to go with larger groups where everyone can find something that why want... no more trying to pick a place that appeals to everyone! Peking is super easy next door (and free for a few hours). Some of the stalls change regularly, so check before you go to make sure your favorite stall is still there!
