We had my husband's birthday party on a Friday night. I made reservations for 13 of us. I had never been before but went solely on reviews. It was so good we are still talking about it! I gave a list of family sides and pizzas to our amazing waiter. Everything came out at the right time and everything was... More

If you like real pizza, (New York style with a thin crispy crust, lots of stringy mozzarella cheese, oregano and a rich tomato sauce) this is not the place to go. Their pizza is bland, toppings minimal, and the crust reminds you of a biscuit.

$5.99 lunch buffet—hard to go wrong. I prefer truly *Brooklyn-thin* crust, and it seems that the farther one goes from NYC the more doughy the crusts become, but this is OK overall. They also had a salad bar, which is far removed from the entry/buffet area, so we didn't even know about it when we paid upon entry. Eh, no... More

This Pizza place in not the best, however, in my experience with Pizza both family owned and franchise, Prince is an exception. I had the privilege to dine at Prince and sure enough even after having about six slices of Pizza, I was feeling light and not a bit heavy. I wonder what the secret could be other than the... More

I've been several times and am glad I don't live closer or I'd be significantly heavier! Italian comfort food at its best in a loud, fun atmosphere. The owners are welcoming and friendly. The food is delicious and affordable. There are always crowds and functions going on. It's not a fine dining experience - it's red checked tablecloths and awesome... More

Last night was the first time here in about 20 years. The pizza, decor, and price is average. I liked the house Italian dressing. The place was pretty busy so others must think highly of it. I think it is popular for kids sports banquets and families who want a family friendly not-to-pricey night out.

Peculiar arrangement, you order and pay, then sit down and your food is brought to you. Caesar salad was fantastic, my pasta was excellent. My wife's dish was cold and undercooked, had to walk over to manager to resolve, which he did in a professional prompt manner. Not expensive, large portions.

I've been visiting prince since 1986 and have mixed experience at Prince. Unfortunately, the past few visits have been poor. It was Sunday night and Part of the seating area was blocked off. It was insane when people were spilling over table in half of the area. Service is terrible as usual. Servers were not accommodating and appeared disengaged. Pitcher... More

Nice family resaurant. Very reasonably priced and large portions. Great meatball sliders. Love that is still a family business and special appreciation they have for their community.

I have always loved their food, but after being gone for so long, it was kind of disappointing as to the way you order now.....I preferred the waitress coming over and taking your order, but the food was very, very good and the meatballs were great....chicken fettucini was just as good too.....good value, awesome leftovers
