As a native Quincyan, I only come back a couple of time a year to visit family, and Gem City is one of the must haves when I return! Always have to have a delicious Jeff’s Special!!

Love the food here. Great pizza & strawberry margaritas. The seating is a little crowded, but they are busy & need to be able to seat large groups. I will return again & again. The restaurant is handicapped assessable, but it's tight.

This place has been a local favorite for about 50 years. You cant beat the sauce and the atmosphere here. Parking can be tight but it is worth it.

Went here to have pizza with an old friend and catch up. Enjoyed sitting in a booth rather than a table. Chips and salsa are standard, then you order your pizza, ha. Good food, good service, a little noisy, but the booth helps mitigate that...More
