Pizza and Trains!

Good American-style pizza with lots of fun toppings. Excellent salads and fun, kid-friendly atmosphere with a beautiful, model train on the upper level.

We are from Massachusetts. And have been going to pizza works for years. I truly wish it didn't take us 2 1/2 hours to get there. So when ever we travel to family in NJ or are going to a baseball tournament in N. Branford. We always stop and get our pizza works fix. We love the focaccia wheel, Sheila's... More

Pizza Works is one of our favorite restaurants and we go regularly to enjoy a shrimp and broccoli pizza, always a treat. The focaccia and house salad with their delicious balsamic dressing is a tasty appetizer. The dressing is so good, we buy it by the bottle to take home. It's such a pleasant atmosphere it makes even a simple... More

Pizzaworks is an incredible place for pizza-the BEST! Delicious gluten free pizza. The little kids can watch the model trains for hours going around the tracks, and the real trains coming into the station on the TV inside. The last two times we went several of our pizzas did not come until everyone was finished. We had to bring it... More

Pizza Works in Old Saybrook is the perfect place to dine with friends and family arriving by train - a frequent event for me with children and grandchildren living in NYC. My grandchildren enjoy the model train displays on both ends of the upstairs dining room. A real-time camera shows trains stopping or transiting the station. The waitstaff are very... More

Really great pizzas- contrary to most in the USA this restaurant uses a very small amount of cheese and really piles the pizza with fresh good quality ingredients. One of our party was able to have a pizza with no cheese at all. Garlic brad was excellent too. Service was quick but not pushy. Sat outside on a warm evening-... More

The service was so bad that I ended up walking out. The waitress was extremely rude. I've dined here several times and always had KAREN as my wait person. Karen is the best. If I go back I will only have Karen take care of me.

Pizza Works is a hidden gem here in Old Saybrook by the Train Station. We had not been here in a couple of years, but our daughter and her boyfriend go here quite often! The specialty pizza is excellent! The Salads are the the best on the Shoreline, excellent variety, portions are huge (good for two meals), the balsamic dressing... More

I tried this place years ago and was greatly disappointed by the food, but my boys loved the trains. This time I took my granddaughter. The food is no better. My GF white pizza with shrimp and broccoli was like matzo with shrimp and broccoli. It was dry and didn't even seem to have olive oil. The service was only... More
