“Best Pizza in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Great Oak Special pizza is to die for! It is loaded with meats and veggies and a sauce that would make a grown man weep for joy! If I wasn't afraid I'd weigh 600 pounds I'd eat there every day! Actually, everything is really good there. The service is terrific. If you are a Red Sox fan you will love the place. Nick, the owner is a die hard Red Sox fan so if the team is on television, it will be on the big screen TV. There is also Red Sox paraphernalia on all the walls. Even if you are not a Red Sox fan (and why aren't you?) Great Oak is a really good place for pizza, calzones, fish and chips and lots of other really good menu items.
And, finally the baklava is homemade and soooo good!

“Great food and service at a great price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

My family and I don't eat out very often but when we do we go to Great Oak. They have the best meatball grinders and pizza around. Prices are reasonable and the staff are super friendly. I do wish they would update their interior but the delicious food makes up for the decor.

“Its all good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Pizza is probably an 8 out of 10. However the baked pasta dishes are large and very good. In the colder months they have a chicken rice soup that is killer and I can't get enough of that. Service is among the best in the area. Fast, economical and tasty - how can you go wrong?

“Quality is average, but prices are great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

The food was across the board average in taste. But for eight bucks you get a MONSTER of a calzone. Average food for a great price. They make an interesting tartar sauce for fish & chips, that was certainly above average.
