“Perfect Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We wandered into Lizzie's today after seeing a movie and thought we would try the pizza. We were immediately impressed with the warm and inviting atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff, especially the owner Cathie. We ordered meatballs for an appetizer, They were delicious and we sopped up every bit of sauce with the fabulous bread. We ordered the Margherita pizza. It was beautifully presented on an elevated stand. The crust, fresh basil, tomatoes and quality cheese set this pizza apart from any we have had in OC - maybe anywhere! It was amazing! We took a menu home and are looking forward to coming back for breakfast and for dinner. We couldn't resist the one last sticky bun in the case and bought it to take home. The muffins, cakes brownies and pies were all so tempting. So happy that this rainy day movie time led us to this fabulous restaurant. Try it out. You will not be disappointed!

“Wonderful Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Lizzie's pizza is excellent as is the service. The only short coming is a rather limited dinner menu. Nice, cute little place. We would definitely return.

Great food, great atmosphere and great service! We had the crab and eggs and the veggie omelette. Both were huge portions and served quickly!! Will definitely be back :-)

“Nicely Appointed Cafe but Unattentive Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

It is clear that care went into designing Lizzie's and that upkeep is taken seriously, which is refreshing for Ocean City. The menu is straightforward and we enjoyed our meal. However, the restaurant was not crowded at all yet we waited to be seated, waited for water, and waited even longer for our food. I noticed that diners had to ask for coffee refills and for the checks at the end of their meals. This can easily be remedied with a little staff training. If you are not in a rush, it is worth a visit.

LizzieOCMD, Owner at Lizzie's Cafe & Bistro 142nd St., responded to this review, June 18, 2014
Hello Vacationer20319,
Thank you for visiting our restaurant and taking the time to write a review. It's where we look to improve ourself and your comments are appreciated. So happy you enjoyed the atmosphere as we strive hard to present a clean, charming and refreshing dining experience for our vacation guest and local customers. There is never an excuse for inattentive service, so we apologize for that. We just opened for the 2014 season last week. As a seasonal restaurant for the past 11 years, we train new staff each year and that is what we are doing these first several weeks early in the season. Your suggestion that the service can be easily remedied is taken seriously and we are doing just that. If this was your first visit to Lizzie's, I want you to know that my husband and I have run Lizzie;s together each year for the past 11 years with a limited staff since we are very small.....only 39 seats. This year I will not arrive in OCMD until the end of June due to personal reasons, so my husband is left doing double-duty until then. It's OK, he's like SUPERMAN ...sort of....but an older version..... :) Lizzie's is what we are doing in our retirement and he is living his dream. I thank you for your suggestion and I invite you back. We are working on training our staff and plan to have them ready asap. I have reviewed your comments with my husband and he is reviewing them with the staff. Most of our staff are J1 Visa Students....bright young kids who are happen to learn and improve.... I hope next time we will get a 5 Star review for more than our atmosphere. I am glad you liked the food too....we have a wide range of things for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Please come back....I will be there the end of June.
Thank you, Cathie Rocklin/Owner
