In a city of great food, do not waste your time in this chain. We ordered the calamari. It was a pile of dry, fried breading. My husband ordered a seafood pasta dish.... Lots of pasta, little seafood. Unmemorable.

Had lunch with our two families. Food was decent, service wasn't great but it was a busy time. First time here, family enjoyed it. Will probably come again.

I am almost embarrassed that i'm going to tell you that this was the best clam chowder that I have ever had WEST of the Delaware river in Jersey. Take their chowder, add the garlic butter they give you and it becomes a Jersey shore...More

From being greeted at the front desk to the service and of course the food, the experience was delightful. The location may change but the quality of service and food does not. Well done!

Stopped here for an early dinner and was stunned by the line up. This place is apparently very popular. The service is good, the decor is good, the location is good, the food is average. If you've dined at any other Old Spaghetti Factory, you...More
