Agree with Dave's review. Heavier pizza but great if you're in the mood for a thicker crust with some crunch. Great sauce too.

This is a next level pie. I’ll put it up against any pie in the Tri State area. This place has been around since the 30’s. The vibe is great and they certainly mastered the Pizza making craft in all the years they’ve been around. This is worth a 2-3 hour road-trip IMO.

Wow, just wow. Everything about this pizza was outstanding! We ordered 2 pies, a plain and a 1/2 sausage, 1/2 meatball. This is a Bar/Restaurant, not a Pizza Joint and these pies were incredible! The bar has an old school feeling and I believe it has been around since the 1930’s or something. They have definitely perfected their pizza over that time. As great as this pizza is, the crust is the champion of the pie. The sauce is definitely tangy and delicious and the cheese is outstanding as well with a great sauce:cheese ratio. It was slightly greasy, or at least the meat pie was with a slight flop but the crust is just unreal. It has so much flavor, definitely a slight yeast or sourdough tang to it, with beautiful bubbles all over. Light and airy crust while being slightly thick at the same time. THIS IS NOT A Portnoy Bar Pie. IMO, this pie is the PERFECT combination of a NY/NJ Style, Napoleon Style and Bar Pie all mixed together. If you like ANY of those style pies, I believe you will love this pizza. Easily one of the best pies I’ve ever had and without a doubt worth the drive to try it out.

Hybrid football and bar pie. No flop. Great char on the cheese.

Terrific pizza. Unbelievable taste. A bit oily on top, but the crust is one of the very best.

Went here for a date night and pizza is great. The atmosphere even better. Feels like stepping into a real old school tavern and everyone super nice. The crust was thick, very little flop and the cheese was really tasty. Better than basic and could eat for days.

Place had a great vibe. Have to admit I am pretty disappointed. Flavor is good. A lot of flower on the crust. I can’t get better than a good average pie.

A chod pizza - it was short and fat and could have been thinner crust. Less girth and more earth with veggies would be better. On the plus side the meatball wasn’t flacid and had some pop to it.

Not to be confused with Reservoir Restaurant and not to be confused with bar pie either; the pizza here is thicker, heavier & still fluffier than your standard bar pie. The bright orange glow is from the oil slick, coating the entire pie, caused by the excess butter fat in the cheese. The gushing grease glazes so much of the pizza, it’s difficult to decipher the flavors in the sauce, giving off more of a salty taste than anything. The cheese has a nice lava-like, oozing flow, but is also swimming in oil. If you sop up the grease with a napkin or paper towel, this is very much a pizza’s pizza taste. Despite all of the moisture, the dough is rather firm and somewhat crispy. There’s a lot of crust, which is well balanced between soft & crisp with very good flavor. Overall it’s pretty good pizza but they need to clean up the oil slick. Until then, this is not a long distance travel pie but still a solid neighborhood option.

This review is from 2-13. Awesome pie. The crust is the best, just the right thickness to my taste, and perfect end crust. Cooked perfectly with great crunch. Love the sauce and cheese too. It even looks as good as it tastes. Big score!

Warm, friendly place but the pies were a little disappointing. The sauce and cheese were good but the crust was excessively chewy. By the time I got through the cornicione (pizza rim), my jaw was sore. Ever have a fight with an overly sinuewy steak? Again, nice people, great family vibe. I'd like to give this pie another try some day, maybe after Covid's past and times are normal.

Bar pie here... Crust, under carriage was very unique and can support whatever toppings. Sauce was bland and average cheese
