Old Standby Delivers Consistently

We really enjoy Mr. G's. Especially for salads and calzones. Portions are generous and service good. Atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Very welcoming. We will always have Mr. G's in mind as a potential lunch or dinner spot.

Haven't been to Mr G's in about 5 years. My return put me back in the same place from my last visit years ago. Not much has changed. I've always had lunch or dinner in the bar area so that is the focus of my comments....nothing seems to have changed in this area. Food is always pretty good, they've always... More

A bangin quesadilla for all those quesadilla addicts. Their service is casual & friendly. Buffalo chicken pizza was unique , we liked that it was offered with a cheese other than blue cheese. The house are garlic dressing was super yummy. I'll totally visit again :)

Try the lasagna! Or the Quesadilla! Or just a plain cheese pizza! Try anything here... its like your grandmother made it herself. Ask about the dessert of the day. They're different every day and homemade by a local baker.

We actually tried all three offerings. Buffalo Mac and cheese, garlic parm fries, and chicken bacon and waffle fritters. All were outstanding and worth the wait in line. If we had longer in the area we would definitely check out the actual restaurant.

Been several times over the years. Usually just for pizza (greek pie) and a beer. They serve a good basic burger setup. My wife loves the eggplant grinder. Friends were very happy with ribeye sandwich, soup & salads.

I see other people have called Mr. G's a dive bar with bad food but I have to disagree. I have never had a bad meal here. Granted I keep it simple, it's a pizza place so if you are looking for five star Michelin dining, you are not going to find it here. The pizza and grinders are both... More

I've been here a few times and the service is sub-par. I ordered relatively simple things and waited more than 45 minutes each time. The restaurant itself gives off a rather "dumpy" feeling in which you're better coming here for a drink late night. That said, the food saved it for me. In the future, I believe I will only... More

Total dive with a decent bar but the food is absolutely terrible. I'm still shocked that so many people I work with come here for lunch - I found the food I got to be inedible. Eeks - methinks not on the food. 2 star for the bar only. Very dark environment - perhaps they're trying to hide the quality... More
