Good pizza... so good

Wanted pizza after a day at the beach... it was definitely worth the trip. Ordered the "famous pizza" and after 20 minutes they brought out the wrong pizza.... a vegetarian pizza. So they told me to keep it and made another... the food was great... we also got clams strip, pickle fries and crabby... read more

My kids couldn't stop eating their favorite pizza! The family has a second Famous in Bethel, CT and it was great to enjoy that wonderful Famous sauce.

The Gyro's and the philly cheese steak were delish. Would definitely visit again. We found this place because The Crab Shack stops serving at 9 and we were there at 9:02p. We did luck out unfortunately we made it there the next night and were very disappointed at the Crab shack!!

We've been coming to the island for 5 yrs now & I've eaten half the menu myself. My husband has probably eaten the other half. I've never been disappointed & always enjoyed each meal. It doesn't look fancy, but the food is really good. The atmosphere is loud (family friendly) so it's not romantic at all. But...with food this good,... More

My family has been raving about this place for years so we finally decided to stop by. It was delicious. Perfect for a quick bite before the beach. Although their pizza is supposed to be the best, none of us got it. We all got subs/sandwiches instead and everyone of us loved them. The service was friendly and fast and... More

Ordered from here our first night in Chincoteague. Got a large half cheese half pepperoni and mushroom and were very pleased. Good crust, sweet sauce, lots of cheese. Also got an order of crab bites which were AMAZING. I am not a jalapeno person at all, and ordered them only because my husband is and it was father's day weekend.... More

All pizzas - super hot & so good! Also, ordered for delivery to hotel one night - steak & cheese subs w/ crispy fies were... More

This place ROCKS pizza, Philly cheesteak sandwiches, and shrimp baskets...they've also got a cranberry walnut chicken salad sandwich that is out of this world! Hard-working staff, casual atmosphere, and lots of fun to visit...mostly because the staff have such great, positive attitudes every time I visit.
