It was after two and the place was empty except for another couple. The service was of course great. I liked the fact that the menu has a "seniors and children's " combined menu section. I had a great foot long hotdog with fries for only $5.00 and my wife had a salad which was also great. We can't complain... More

We use to go to Someplace Special every week for years in the late 90's. After a while, the pizza was always overcooked or burned so we stopped going. We decided to try it again today. I like tomato sauce on my pizza, I could not taste the sauce on it at all, you could barely see it. It was... More

Not fast either! At lunch with only one or two other customers it took about 40 minutes to get our meals. I ordered HEART SMART PIZZA. when it finally arrived, I was dismayed to see that it was smothered in mozzarella, like any other not so smart pizza.

Took my daughter there last night. When we first arrived we asked to sit outside and was argued with saying it was to cold outside. Then came the watered down sodas.... More like tinted water. Then came the horrible clam chowder.... And finally the 45 minute wait for the dinner. I guess we all have our own experiences good and... More

My husband and I have lived in the area all our lives and someplace special has always been a good choice but the last few years we've been shopping around for another pizza place because of their prices have gone up quite a bit. This past weekend we decided to treat ourselves and order and what a disappointment. The crust... More

After undergoing a much needed renovation some ten years ago, this restaurant went from nothing special at all to someplace "somewhat" special. The atmosphere has improved to be quite nice and fairly comfortable. The expanded menu offers a variety of hit or miss meals. We found it a bit pricey, but worth a visit none-less.

Fresh ingredients, tasty sauce, real cheese. All the flavors blend nicely together. My favorite is the green pepper, onions and pepperoni pizza. Best pizza in town for the money!

The piZza we ordered was bad. The crust...pre cooked.? Was quite soggy. We went on a Monday, so maybe the chef was off that night. There was what sounded like a wild time going down in the kitchen that spilled over onto the dining area. Seemed like it took the better part of an hour to get the pizza. I... More

I come here all the time and NEVER have had such poor service here before. I arrived before the rest of my friends (party of 3) to get a table as I know the place fills up fast. It was a Sat night, one person at the bar, two booths and one other table were filled. It took my waitress... More
