I wanted to like this place, but the food is disgusting. Nothing is made here (sauce, bread, meatballs etc.) Instead they serve flavorless canned sauce/veggies, stale (challenging to bite into) bread, bland salads etc. I couldn't believe the prices either, $12 for angel hair with sugary, watered down sauce. The lasagna cheese and meat filling still gives me the chills...... More

Whatever you have the taste for they offer. From sandwiches (we prefer the grinder) to smelt dinner or liver and onions to Italian entrees. Great pizza and great omelets,,,,we do not order the steak sandwiches anymore as there was not much meat in sandwich, but other than that the food is great! Also great ice cream desserts and perfect to... More

A friend from Ohio asked me to take her to lunch at a restaurant I loved as a teen and immediately Grandpa Tony's came to mind. I used to know the family that owned it back then and had visited it often until moving north. We ordered one of their famous pizzas and a side. The side was fine, kind... More

Scott was our server last night and he was attentive without being annoying. We had the steak sandwich, chicken Caesar salad and the nachos for an appetizer. I was a bit surprised when the appetizer came out last and the entree's first, but I won't complain since it was late at night and close to closing time. We didn't feel... More
