I feel sorry for the owner serving such horrible foods. Clean and quaint inside. We could not find freshly prepared food on this menu.

Used to have really good pizza. The young people who work there now dont seem to care about the customer. While the kid in the kitchen is stuffing HIS face, I wait and wait for a dissapointing slice!!!

Gretchen's has been a family favorite for over 10 years. This restaurant is where you will find most of the locals throughout the week. The garlic knots are super garlicky -- perfect! The sauce is homemade and delicious!
