Best Pizza on the Island. If you can get a booth on the soda fountain side, old time fun. However, the small pizza room is fun too. Take a look at the photos on the wall.

The club sandwich here was good, the salad was just fair. Their salads are more the scoop of tuna salad in a tomato type rather than a plate with lots of greens and veggies. This place has an old time soda fountain feel with comfy...More

Pick a different place for a quick pizza stop. The pizza crust was like cardboard and the sauce had no flavor at all. I was disappointed and clearly had too high of expectations for this place.

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
