i've been eating here off and on for about eleven years plus. Somehow i've never had the displeasure of meeting the owner until my last two visits. I think its time to retire buddy! The food over the years has gone up and down but has always been slightly overpriced . With the limited amount of options in the area we always gave it another chance for the sake of variety. That is officially over! Here is a tip from a guy that manages a multi million dollar business ... If somebody asks to pay you for something extra on their meal do it with a smile and charge them! I believe it is his son that usually runs the bar and has always been very nice so its a shame that somebody let this old hobbit out front to talk to customers!

The good news - the food at Fontana's is delicious. We ordered the wings, pizza, two sandwiches and a children's chicken planks meal.The bad news - it took 50 MINUTES from the time we ordered until the appetizer got to our table. Even worse, when we told the manager/owner about the issue, she was defensive, argumentative and insulting. She apologized with an "I'm sorry, BUT..." then a litany of excuses. Later, she informed us that "I would have adjusted your bill if you hadn't given me so much CRAP."Unfortunately, due to the poor attitude of the owner, we will NOT return to this establishment nor can we recommend it to anyone.

After ordering a wings appetizer, pizza, sandwiches & kids meal, it took 50 MINUTES for the appetizer to get to our table. When we told the owner about this, she was defensive and insulting. She offered an apology of "I'm sorry, BUT..." followed by a litany of excuses. Later, she informed us that, "I would have adjusted your check if you hadn't given me so much CR-P."

Despite the fantastic food, due to the attitude of the owner, we WILL NOT be back.

Went here with the girls. Great food with healthy choices on the menu. Love the Ahi Tuna Salad...cooked just right! Love that they offer a portabello sandwich! Very friendly atmosphere. Makes you feel at home! Great Job Fontanas! Took my husband the next week...he loved it also!

We stumbled upon Fontana's last night by accident, and are glad we did! Food was well-executed, service friendly, and the small bar was as friendly as could be.

We split the special of baby back ribs with sweet potato fries and salad. Ribs were wet-style, melting off the bone in a tasty sauce. Salad was simple and very well done ?? fresh ingredients, well balanced vinaigrette, and good dry bleu cheese.

We were in a hurry, so didn't try dessert. During our dinner, we noticed that the hostess was taking reservation after reservation for the next night ?? good sign.

This is a hidden gem!

This is a smaller restaurant/bar with very good food. I have enjoyed their wings and fish sandwiches. Make sure you order their homemade potato chips
