Lost some interest

It was a restaurant with a great bar and wonderful meatballs. I also thought the food was great back in the day. Now it is a Seafood restaurant and a small pizza joint.

We are alway looking for good food. We rarely find pizza places to be bad. We first got the garlic bread rolls - they were caked with garlic sauce and tasted half like cardboard. The Stromboli fillings were fine but the crust/dough had virtually no taste and the tomato sauce on the side was boring. The price was good but... More

Went in for dinner after a hot day on the beach. Place was nice and cool and not hot like the other's in that area. Service was prompt. Food was delicious. My husband ordered Chicken parmesan and I got spaghetti and meatballs. Dinner salad was great and not just a plate of lettuce. The garlic rolls are the best I... More

I ordered the 12" greek pizza and my aunt had the 12" Hawaiian...we were super impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the wait staff was so nice and personable. 2-12" pizzas (enough for leftovers) and 4 beers came to $50. We would go back for sure!

The next best thing to New York pizza! Dinner entrees have a gourmet flare and the specials are Above & Beyond the rest! Newly renovated and friendly staff make this place a weekly stop for us!

We've been in LBTS for 5 days and this was the worst food so far. The wait staff was great because we were the only customers. We ordered the gourmet veggie and a regular pepperoni for the kids. All I can say is, I've had frozen pizza from the local grocery store that tasted better.

Awesome spot-we ordered several meals to go, had excellent quality every time and the staff were friendly and helpful. The menu is very broad, so everyone will find something to satisfy. Recommended.

there are so many things wrong with this restaurant that could be so easily fixed! Restaurant owners must spend lots of money, so why would they not fix the obvious problems? People will forgive lots of things but not bad service. It started with the hostess. We made a reservation, arrived at a half empty restaurant and were given the... More

We have tried several pizza places in town and this one is pretty good. Its worth a try. I don't think they deliver, but its close to the center of town and convenient to pick up. No online menu though.
