“The Meatball Shop Slogan is "We Got Balls"”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Well I would have to agree! The menu is direct and let's you choose what you want in regards to meat( beef, chicken, pork, or the special of the day) and mushroom, tomato, spicy tomato, parm cream, or pesto sauce. They have daily specials for rissotto, veggies, cookies,lemoades, & ice creams. They offer speciality cocktails as well and have 3 draught beer selections. Sixpoint Brewery makes for them exclusively the Wheatball beer which is very good! Everything we sampled we enjoyed! Get here early it does get packed quickly.

“Great food, amazing value”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Simple menu system lets you select your meatball, sides and other additions.

The meatballs are EXCELLENT - try spicy pork!

Service was very friendy and the price seems like a bargain (I live in Sydney!).

You will not regret a visit to the Meatball Shop.

“Disappointing...”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I visited their Greenwich Ave branch...
The idea is great. You mark everything you like on the menu - the kind of meatballs you want, the sauce, the sides etc'.
The place has a great atmosphere to it, great decor, the bartender/waitress was the best, even the toilets looks great, everything in this place was done with a lot of taste... The only problem was the taste of the food. The meatballs. They were just average. Nothing special about them.
I really like meatballs, I really wanted to like this place, everything (but the meatballs) was really really nice... I'm sorry... Maybe it was the cooks day off... I promise to try again...
