The food was tasty, our server was a really great gal...I think her name was Tina. We were amazed at the size of the helpings. My daughter and I shared a sampler platter...and we had left overs! The fish were also excellent. I couldn't believe the size of the desserts...we could only watch others eat theirs as we were soooooo... More

I know quite a lot about this restaurant. I know the owners very well. One of them is a nice a guy and the other is a dink. The dink is rarely there, usually spending his time in a bar. Months go by where he is no where to be seen. The nice guy is there all the time and... More

After many years of not going to Grandpa Tony's for dinner, we decided to try it before going to a football game. We were again dissappointed with our dinner. It took almost 50 minutes for our food, which was fair at best. It was more like a frozen meal, instead of home cooked. Would definitely not go back.

Me and my boyfriend have gone here twice now, once in February and again earlier this month. Both times we had pizza and it was the best around. Last time they got our order wrong but they quickly rectified their mistake and not only made a new pizza for us but said it was on the house. As if that... More

An inexpensive place to go to get good food, large quantities, and excellent friendly service. Not as impressed with thier pizzas as we are with their pastas- especially the baked ones! Best bean soup in town if you like bean soup. Great homemade Italian bread served with just about every meal. Small but adequate selection of beer and wine to... More

We usually eat at the west side Grampa Tony's. They have a full menu but the food is about one step above bar food. Filling but not too memorable. You get a lot of it tho.

Go here on a weekly basis. Not very busy usually, you can always get a table right away. Steak sandwiches are excellent! Nice little family-owned resturaunt. Nothing fancy, just regular food. Service is good.

I had the chicken parmesan with lasagna special. The chicken was soggy but still tasted alright and the lasagna also wasn't too tasty. The price was great as well as the service. Overall: average food at a decent price.

Been in town for decades. Pleasant surroundings and wait staff, home cooked, large portions, very reasonably priced. Great baked goods to take out. Delicious!

You know, this is a greasy spoon local chain. Huge portions, low cost.... If that's the type of dining you are looking for, look no more. They have a giant italian steak sandwich that is a local staple. Your heart will be angry, but your stomach will love you!
