Great place, been there forever

Always heard about the pizza at the tavern and finally got a chance to stop in to this local fixture (been in same spot since 1936). Pizza was fantastic, get the toasties which are toasted meatballs with a side of sauce. Friendly service, bar area was hopping for a Saturday afternoon. Absolutely... read more

I give my lunch (the mezanone - $10.50) an average and my husband's (bar pizza with broccoli rage, garlic, and roasted peppers - $13.50) a very good. I ordered the stuffed eggplant from the appetizer menu - billed as a half eggplant (a very tiny eggplant) stuffed with mushrooms, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts). I figured a $10.50 portion would be... More

We ordered 2 large pies for pickup - the "large" looked big enough to feed 2 people. It was 1/2 the size of the box- almost looked like a domino's pie. Taste was just OK. Nothing to write home about. I've heard of others who absolutely love this place - I guess it's a hit or miss.

Surprised by the negative reviews. I had my first pizza here in the early 60's and have been coming every month or so ever since ... Yes, there is a wait often, is that a bad thing ? Have never had inferior service. Besides the pie, love the shrimp calabrese, beet salad, cold antipasto, and the "ultimate" which has to... More

I have never eaten here. I never will. They refused to allow my nephew inside because he's in a wheelchair. I'm boycotting this place as a consequence.

I have lunch here at least twice per month. Always great. The staff is tremendous. My favorite is the sausage and pepper sandwich, no sauce, roll on the side.

I love Reservoir, I really do. I also hate it. I love that the Pizza is so good that your mouth waters just thinking about it. So is the soup. So is probably everything I've ever had there. I hate that you have to wait an hour to get seated and when you do, the waitresses act like they're doing... More

I hesitate to say anything because we've been eating here for more than 30 years. Sadly, neither my wife nor I think this place is anywhere near as good as it used to be. Neither would these two Italians (Well, one Sicilian and one Neopolitan) consider the pizza pies to be all that good. As we walked out the other... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way from Philly to Lake George. We had read the reviews online and decided it sounded like a decent option. The building and location seemed like maybe we would fund a good turkey club or a tuna melt but this place blew our minds! The smell from the parking lot... More

Large portions, reasonable prices, varied menu, dishes prepared on premises. Caters to locals, family groups, and the occasional visitor lucky enough to discover the place. We went later on a Saturday evening and the place was packed; be prepared to wait and arrive early if possible, but any wait is worth it.
