Oh Wonder Bar, we've missed you!

When we heard that the Wonder Bar had reopened, we had to check it out, pronto! First off, the interior is completely different, with pressed tin ceilings and walls. It's a good look but with the changes came NOISE. The acoustics are horrible and we had to yell across the table in order to hear... read more

If you like nostalgic places to eat, it is sort of cool. If you like good food there are some many other choices on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester.

I'm glad the Wonder Bar has reopened. My brother and I stopped in for a quick lunch and we had some wonderful food. I had a meatball and cheese grinder and he had a sausage grinder. We shared a small antipasto and it was enough for both of us. We enjoyed it so much that we got one to go.... More

Just stopped by the Wonder Bar Restaurant located on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, MA upon a recommendation from a friend. The pizza I split with my brother had the most fantastic crust. It was light and stayed crunchy from first bite to last. The service was friendly, fast, and the prices very reasonable. This is one of those family run... More

This was by far, the best family Italian place in Mass. A true family run place, reminded me so much of my own home cooked meals. Pizza (bar pies) were some of the best I've had. The White Garlic pizza with ricotta was indulgent! I would drive out of my way to get these pizzas. I was so sad when... More

This restaurant is by far the best local Italian place in town, great food & atmosphere, excellent service,great food & amazing Bar Pies (pizza). I just love this place, reminds me of a small version of the old European Restaurant in Boston which closed many years ago. You have to try it, a great mom & pop place.

One day a former Worcester resident was talking of his absolute favorite restaurants in the city. His absolute #1 recommendation was this establishment, and for about 5 minutes he raved about the food. So while in the area we decided to try it out. It was... very strange. First, we expected a place that might be a bit more updated,... More

There was 6 of us on a cold night in January. They placed a large table in the middle of the restaurant, in front of the door. I wore my coat the whole time. The pizza, not so good. I live in a small town and our small town pizzeria is better than a city pizzeria. The server was non... More

Had been a a regular at the Wonder Bar in my younger years and always remember it as a great place for a pizza and beer. Although it's been a while, my husband and I thought it would be great to revisit the restaurant, sure it would fill the bill for a nice laid back evening out. Went there on... More

Easily the best pizza in town. Affordable. Don't expect it to be a bar, it's a pizza place. Bring cash.
