We have not been to this side of town for a long time but, will make it a point to be back to eat at Great Oak. The service was great. To walk into a restaurant and see the owner actually working the kitchen was a good surprise, He makes sure every meal is done the proper way. The pasta... More

Always go to Great Oak when we come from New York because their pizza is the best. You can't get pizza like this in New York.

We have only been here once and will never return. We had to wait for someone to pull out of a space to be able to park because it was so packed so we thought it must be a great place. The service was awful! It seems there are a lot of regulars that visit but I personally felt the... More

Its a family style pizza place that will make your pizza special. The regulars rule and make strangers feel at home with entertaining antics and an ability to laugh at themselves and others. The food is incidental to the family style, neighborly visiting.

The best pizza, grinders and salads around! The grilled chicken salad is awesome! If you've never had a fish grinder you need to try one at GO. The waitresses are super gals and aim to please. A busy place is a good place right? I meet all the locals there and it is always a fun night; even strangers are... More

Restaurant is clean, service couldn't be better. We tried their pizza and if you like cheese, then GOP could be a good choice for you. Honestly, I prefer a pizza that has a little less cheese and a little more sauce (which by the way there's is very good, just not enough). Garden salad is fresh, however tomatoes were the... More

The food here is great; the Fish & Chips are delicious and fresh! Pretty much everything is fresh and great here, the portions are huge- love the pizza, gyro, salads and creamy garlic dressing!

The place is clean and neat and has plenty of seating. Staff are very good. The food is very good. I went there pretty regularly , as I worked close by. I just wish the parking lot was a little bigger as it gets very busy at lunch time.

This place makes great pizza. It tastes super fresh and they use real bacon, not those imitation bacon bits. The baklava tastes homemade and delicious. The house dressing is out of this world!!!!! Skip the overpriced casino restaurants and come here instead.
