I'm going to start with thr positives and this place doesn't deserve negative feedback from the actions of one employee. Our 2 large pizzas were great and I would recommend for people to go.

The chicken breastfeeding parmigiano is the best value and is easily two meals. Just had the Shepherd's Pie and a salad with avacado, grilled chicken and bacon on two other visits. The soups are...

We ordered a large half cheese, half pepperoni pizza. The crust was very good and there was less of that "garlic powder" taste on the sauce I remember from past visits. My main complaint is that they serve a "large" salad in a very small bowl, which makes it difficult to serve without it spilling on the questionably clean table.... More

Their pizza is always delicious! You can call ahead for picking up a pizza or you can have it in the restaurant.

Recently went to the Fountain to celebrate a confirmation. Our guests were nicely surprised. Service was great. Food was tasty and plentiful. Bloody Mary's as usual are superb. Nice atmosphere and very friendly place. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed great pizza and French onion soup -- two things they've done well for the 20+ Years I've visited there. We made a field trip out of this visit to our old neighborhood.

The Fountain has a straightforward menu built on red sauce, diner-style sandwiches, and appetizers. Most diners will find something they like on this menu. Be sure to try the Fried Mushrooms and always get the Macaroni Salad. Pretty good Reuben sandwich as well. Casual, good for families or adults.
