    Since this place renovated it has been amazing! We stopped coming for awhile but decided to give it another try. I'm glad we did. The food is excellent as well as the service. I'm sorry I didn't get my server's name but he was great! Very attentive. We've had the skirt steak, salmon and pizza and all was excellent. Definitely will be back!

    I had the chicken Parmesan over risotto. I have to say it was awful. There was some ingredient in the Parmesan that I loathed. Dee’s doesn’t seem to be the place it used to be. My partner had the rigatoni with eggplant and liked the dish.

    Love Dee’s! I travel to the area 1-2 times per month from Kentucky and Dee’s is a must visit each time. Best pizza I’ve had in the states. Dimitri usually serves us and is AMAZING! Great attitude and great service.

    First of all, I love the new renovated interior. It’s modern, yet still cozy. The food as usual was delicious and our waiter, Shane, was great! We’ve been going to Dee’s for many years and it never disappoints.

    Standard American fare... food has always been pretty good but not great. Less good recently. The focaccia, which was always amazing and probably what they do best, was just oily and extra cheesy this time. For those who might remember, focaccia used to be included with the meatballs (not anymore) and the mussels (not anymore, instead get a cup of fries in the middle of the mussels bowl aka fewer mussels). Even their chocolate chip cookies, which were beloved, are harder and just not as good.

    I live out of state and this is my 2nd visit to Dee's in 3 months. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I was fortunate enough to have the same server both times. I can't recall his name but he was terrific on both occasions. Will surely make another stop at Dee's the next time I'm in NY.

    You always get a very good meal here. My family and I have been customers since Dee opened almost 31 years ago. Covid unfortunately has thrown everybody a curve and a few new servers are learning the ropes. this is ok. We will always go there for the pizza is great.

    I loved my overall experience at Dees! The food was amazing! The server was terrific. The Truffle Pizza was delightful. The seafood was fresh and tasty. The Steak tacos were a surprising addition to the meal upon recommendation from our server. The Rosemary Gnocci Shrimp was one of the most impressive meals I have tasted in my life!
