Great food and staff

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

Great pizza. I really love the eggplant fries, I don't even like eggplant. The grinders ate good, also.

Food is so good. The waits are long but the take out is just as good. Pizza is recommended and the penne a la vodka is good. Waitstaff are nice. Perfect spot when you don't want to go to a chain restaurant!!! The chicken needs improving though- slimy recently.

I have eaten there or ordered take out dozens of times. You always get a large portion of delicious food. So many choices from pasta, to pizza, to burgers and grinders. Awesome salads and appetizers. A wide variety of beer, wine and cocktails for parents, delicious milkshakes for kids and non-drinkers.

When my friend comes to town we always go here, it’s one of her favorite places. We were here on a Tuesday night at 7:00 and were told there was a 15-20 minute wait. No problem we went to the bar for a drink. There was only one girl behind the bar and they probably could have used someone else... More

We were in CT for hockey games and looking for somewhere to eat as a team. There are no Joey Garlics where we live. Since none of us had heard of it we looked up the menu online. It looked to have a variety & reasonably priced as well. My husband and I shared the Eggplant Sliders and Spinach Calzone.... More

It has been exactly a year later that we were visiting the area and ate here once again. It was a Sunday evening, we were a party of four and only waited 15 minutes for our table. Everything we ordered was delicious and we had plenty of leftovers. Our waitress was great. We plan on bringing our extended family here... More

My wife and I went for dinner and we both had a side salad and split a "Kitchen Sink" pizza. They both were delicious and the service was great. I highly recommend them for dinner.

Visited with large business group for Lunch. Service was good. I ordered a warm goat cheese salad. Large portions and great salad. One of our associates ordered a pizza, which looked great! Looks very family friendly and seemed to have nice bar area. Nice selection of appetizers.

Thank TTJFamily
