I normally love the pizza and the staff. I've ordered the cheese, sausage, artichoke, pepperoni, and white. The amount of toppings in the past were decent. Usually I would order my anchovy pizza light on the anchovies for the family. A week ago I ordered 3 pizzas; artichoke, cheese, and a half mushrooms/anchovy pizza to go for myself. When I opened the box I discovered a piece of anchovy on each slice. Disappointed, I called to complain, the worker apologized and quickly connected me to the manager. However, the woman who identified as the manager told me 4 slices 4 pieces of anchovy, and the cooks are instructed to put a piece on each slice only. She wasn't apologetic at all. In fact she was quite dismissive. I won't ever order an anchovy pizza from there again. Truly disappointed! 😡

There’s always a line and it’s a little chaotic, but it’s totally worth it. There’s a decent bar to grab a drink while you wait. The food speaks for itself, it’s the best pizza and wings around. Pro tip: ask for the pizza extra well done. Parking lot is limited, but street parking is just fine.

Food was delicious and our server was friendly. I heard about how the pizza is great but opted for the chicken parm instead. It was very tasty and a very good sized portion. I also had the garlic bread with mozzarella as an appetizer and honestly I didn't expect it to be so tasty! It made me wish I had tried the pizza since the garlic bread was so good! I will definitely be returning in the future and getting the pizza 🍕

Tasty pizza. I was convinced after the first few slices (I threw them into my mouth when they were too hot but by the end of my pie I was really digging it. Decent price. A nice find.

Very long wait for takeout to be seated was longer. Small pie but it was good kind of floppy, but I had to pull over and taste a slice. Good sauce, cheese, and crust small pie had no chance on making it home.

Amazing thin crust pizza!! Such friendly service in a very casual atmosphere. Perfect for kids. Sports always on TV and a nice large bar. Really love it here.

Pizza was very good but I didn't think it quite lived up to the hype. Seemed a bit heavy on the oil. Friendly staff and place seems to get a good crowd. Wouldn't avoid the place but not sure I would go out of my way to go there again.

You MUST get the scampi wings!! You will want to drink the sauce or at least dunk your pizza into it. The wings themselves are crispy and delicious! Naturally, the pizza is a hit, too. Go EARLY... like 4:00pm or 4:30pm or else you will be waiting a while. first come first serve. ... service could use a little work but you can overlook it for the great food.

We sat at the bar, my date got his pizza and I patiently waited. 20 minutes go by with no check-in from the bartender. After finally flagging down the bartender (no easy task) I was told that she forgot to order my pizza. I went over the kitchen and asked to speak with the manger and was told there was NO MANAGER! I burst out laughing. What kind of restaurant has no manager on duty? Never heard that one before. They had the nerve to charge me for me meal. Pizza was decent, but the service was incredibly bad. Until this day, I had never stiffed a server on a tip. I honestly considered leaving without paying.

It's been 15 years since I have been to this place and I remembered it as having the best thin crust pizza anywhere. We ordered a meatball and onion pizza and started with an order of Buffalo chicken tenders which were very good. I've heard rumors for years that the Landmark Tavern in Livingston somehow inherited an employee who stole the pizza recipe from Star Tavern. I've been a long time customer of Landmark and I can honestly say I couldn't tell the difference between the two pizza recipes, plus I preferred the Buffalo tenders at Landmark and they have the best burgers in Essex County as far as I'm concerned. There's no reason for me to drive 15 minutes out of my way to go to Star Tavern, however if you live in the neighborhood, you would be missing out on some great thin crust pizza and owe it a try. It's great.
