Parking in front can be difficult but there is a lot in the back.Decent prices, pizza was okay. I know a lot of people really love this place but it was just kind of average to me.

I think people might rave about this place because it's been here for a long time. However, it's really just average. However, my sister-in-law liked her burger. The Italian cuisine has no love. The sauce is bland and tastes like it literally came out of a can. If you come, I'd recommend the burger. Also, if you're coming with a... More

Not only is their pizza excellent , for a pub style restaurant they have a great selection of dinners also. Love going to the Fountain for a beer too. Great crowd of people that frequent this long popular establishment. Great beer selection to boot !

My friends and I came here for dinner last night. They were able to easily accommodate our group of 8, and our request to split the check 8 different ways. I ordered the chicken tender parmigiana (without red sauce), which came with bread and a tossed salad. The tossed salad tasted super fresh, and the Parmesan peppercorn dressing that accompanied...

I have been here several times with my hubbie who loves this place and has been coming here for years. I still haven't found a great meal at The Fountain. Everything is good, just not great. My soup this evening was the best part of my meal. But my medium well hamburger came out like a hockey puck. There was... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. The pizza is good - garlicky and crispy. I also love their potato skins - in my opinion the best around. Their half and half sub - half meatball sub, half sausage sub - is very good. I often order that. The wings are so-so. Other sandwiches, burgs and Italian fare are... More

I'm going to start with thr positives and this place doesn't deserve negative feedback from the actions of one employee. Our 2 large pizzas were great and I would recommend for people to go. They have a really great set up; bar and restaurant and I like the unfussiness of the place. We came here for an evening to reunite... More

I have patronized this family friendly restaurant for over 20 years. Although I love the pizza and wings, the special board is my go to menu. The chicken breastfeeding parmigiano is the best value and is easily two meals. Just had the Shepherd's Pie and a salad with avacado, grilled chicken and bacon on two other visits. The soups are...
