“Shrimp & Garlic Pizza is the BEST!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

We go to John's for take-out throughout the summer and a few times in the winter. We always get their shrimp & garlic pizza and everyone who tries it, loves it! They use fresh minced garlic and red sauce. What could be better?.........except starting with a side salad with John's house dressing and finishing with a cannoli!

“Great food”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

The Bread is served hot, and the meals come with a salad. We love the veal and peppers and they have a most unique broccoli and ziti (it comes in a very light fresh tomato/broth kind of sauce with lots of garlic and lots of broccoli). Never found another resturant with this dinner. I could go there every week. My brother had the baked fish and he said it was delicious.

The atmosphere is not fancy, but it is clean and nice, with a pretty solarian.

My husband and I love this resturant, right off the Interstate 84 and right near Ledgedale at Lake Wallenpaupak. We started going there when we had a boat at Ledgedale, and now we drive there frequently for our favorite dinners.

“Decent food, family style”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

Not too easy to find good pizza in PA but this place is decent (keep in mind I'm from NYC and I'm used to great pizza). They have a good menu, many selections and it's convenient if you're staying at the Comfort Inn.
