I have been going to The Prince Restaurant for a good 45 years. While other restaurants along Route 1 have come and gone, the Prince has kept good times going for well over 50 years. Now I return often with my own kids. It is always a good time and here's why: No waitstaff to contend with. Simply order at... More

I took my college-aged kids to this restaurant to see the comedy show, Giggles. We got there an hour early (as did most everyone else), and ate dinner before the show. I didn't realize that I was going to the place on Rt 1 in Saugus with the huge (tacky) leaning tower of Pisa out front... I never imagined that... More

We've eaten here a few times with our kids for events. The food is just average. We've had pizza, pasta, meatballs...tried a lot of different things. You order, get a number and they call you up when it's ready. Interior has seen much better days. The bathrooms are in bad shape. But it's fine for young kids or groups that... More

The Leaning Tower has been in business since 1961 and we have been going there since the mid 60's.We returned after several years of being away and the food and service is still very good. It is very homestyle,with checked tablecloths and the food is brought out to the table after they say your name and you indicate it is... More

Went with a friend to their "Giggles" comedy club and went to the restaurant side to eat to wait for the show to begin. We had never been there and did not realize that this place is loud and crawling with screaming kids. Well, if the food had been good we certainly could have lived with that, however, that was...

I love the Prince and have been dining here for years and years. Besides the superb classic crusts, you've got to try the specialty crust options. You may never turn back! The Millet/Flax Seed (MFS) offers a crispy, earthy, nutty flavored crunchiness. Not categorized as gluten free (GF). At the risk of describing it and turning you off, I highly... More

I haven't been back to this place in over 10 years. While visiting family they asked where we should go and I asked if Prince was still open. To my hearts delight they said it was and honestly after seeing the place looking almost the same. It definitely brought back some awesome memories from when we used to visit the... More

Stopped in for a quick bite while shopping. Fresh baked, homemade sub roll was unexpected, meatballs were moist and well seasoned. Sauce was a classic red sauce. I added provolone that was melted on top & added a nice toasty crust to the roll. Service was fast, pleasant. Tables were well stocked, clean and comfortable.

Actually was at the Giggles Comedy Show when we ordered this pizza. We got extra cheese, bacon and onion. My god, the crust was awesome, light and buttery! I would highly recommend eating here for some really great pizza.
