Really really tough pizza

The atmosphere is spectacular, it is mobbed - a good sign, staff wonderful, lighting bright - can read menu. Maybe it is just older stomachs being picky, but pizza was very hard, topping was runny, and just being enormous was not what was wanted. Salad was probably the best ever seen. Had... read more

I'm not a big fan of their pizza but the eggplant fries is the best. A must have when going to this restaurant. Big serving too, enough for 5 or more adults.

Where else can you get a LARGE slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza (at the bar only) for about $3.00!! Add a drink and it's an awesome lunch.

Great burgers. You really can't say much more. It's just what you want in a burgers and beer place, and the burgers are fantastic.

Had a quick dinner there last night. Sat in the bar area and could watch tv. Waitress was great and very upbeat and attentive. We got a large Bronx pizza with sausage and roasted peppers. Fabulous thin crust. We had 3 slices left to take home. Highly recommend their thin crust pizza. The sausage on the pizza is excellent.

If you would have told me years ago that when I had the opportunity to go to this restaurant per the suggestion of a friend and I passed it up thinking to myself "that place looks disgusting" I would have went and learned from then that this place is beyond delicious! My pregnant wife and I went on a Sunday... More

Had salad and pizza at the bar, the bar staff provided excellent service and they were very friendly. The pizza here is always good, light crispy crust with great combos of toppings! We will return again!

I have been to this restaurant several times and always had a good time as well as good food. The facility serves Italian American food that is hearty filling and flavorful. They have a very friendly atmosphere as well

We ordered appetizers and drinks at the bar and then split a grinder ( sub, hoagie). Excellent calamari, fresh and hot followed by a large, no, massive eggplant parmesan grinder. Attentive staff and fair price
