Great food!!!

This place makes great pizza. It tastes super fresh and they use real bacon, not those imitation bacon bits. The baklava tastes homemade and delicious. The house dressing is out of this world!!!!! Skip the overpriced casino restaurants and come here instead.

I love that their Gyro Platter included a side Greek Salad. I opted for no french fries, but asked for a larger salad instead. They gave me a large salad (more lettuce, not necessarily more toppings) at no extra charge, and there was more than enough food. My fiancée wasn't crazy about the steak & cheese grinder, but wants to... More

Great pizza. Friendly staff. They commiserated with us as we watched it storm, and storm badly, and realize we probably were not going to see our baseball game that night. We did not.

Great Oak has the best food in the area. We go there on a regular basis when we are in town visiting relatives. It's been around for a long time because the quality of food is excellent and the service is fast, friendly. The owner knows lots of patrons by name and you feel like family when you walk in...

I've been going to great Oak for many years. Nick, Kris and the crew are the best. The value you get, and the quality of the food is fantastic. I've got so many favorites there.............They make you feel like you are part of their family, and the pizza, salads and seafood is awesome!

The Great Oak Special pizza is to die for! It is loaded with meats and veggies and a sauce that would make a grown man weep for joy! If I wasn't afraid I'd weigh 600 pounds I'd eat there every day! Actually, everything is really good there. The service is terrific. If you are a Red Sox fan you will... More

My family and I don't eat out very often but when we do we go to Great Oak. They have the best meatball grinders and pizza around. Prices are reasonable and the staff are super friendly. I do wish they would update their interior but the delicious food makes up for the decor.
