Has been a local favorite place for pizza for 60+ years. A great value for the dollar. They don't have a deep fryer but I still love the wings that they bake.

We went there with family for the first time in 15 years. Back then we went often when we lived a little closer. It was the same as i remembered it for the most part though probably a little cleaner. The pizza was great as well as the salad. The only disappointment were the chicken wings. These guys have missed... More

Went there on a recommendation of a local. Heard the salad with the homemade dressing was good to try. Four of us ate from a large size and it was plenty. The sausage pizza was very very good even though the crust is thicker than I would except from up north. One person ordered the pastrami rueben. It looked like... More

It’s a good place to hang out with buddies or family. Hi-backed wood booths in the DR offer a private setting and your conversation doesn’t get drowned out by the surrounding folks.It is a small bar area and the DR fills up fast especially on the weekend so there may be a wait for a table. It is so worth... More

The food is consistently good. Sausage pizza is our favorite and the sausage is home made. Wine selection is surprisingly good as is the beers. I especially like the margaritas. Soups are good, but the clam chowder is outstanding. They make a great Reuben as well. If there around St.Patricks's Day, be sure to try the Corned Beef and Cabbage... More

I'll preface this review by saying that I prefer a thinner crust for my pizza. To me, the Berkshire's crust is a little too thick, and they put too much sauce and toppings on it. It's closer to a Chicago-style deep dish than I'd like, which is more like eating a casserole than a pizza. But the flavors are good,... More

The food is pizza with some other options, with great salads. Bar is a little dated and kinda out dated. Needs a little up keeping and TLC. But food is great.
