I haven't been to Encore in many years, but after my visit yesterday it's going back into heavy rotation! We ordered the sampler appetizer, came out super quick and piping hot. A ton of food and all of it was great. The ice tea was freshly made and very well brewed. I ordered the steak and cheese, which I'm always... More

Excellent food. Great NY style pizza and calzones. We have tried many things on the menu and we are always happy. Pasta with clams, lobster ravioli, lots of chicken dishes , all great. The tiramisu isn't too shabby either. A local, non chain gem.

The best bartenders, servers and FOOD. The staff is very friendly, the prices are very reasonable. If you're within ten miles of Brothers Encore you should pass up every place else to eat here.

Friendly staff, friendly people, and....just as important....great food. Prices were reasonable and service as quick. Lots of friendly people, several televisions going so that you can watch various sports or other activities.

We've been eating at Brother's Encore Italian Restaurant for the past 5 years. They have great pizza and house salad - both are reasonably priced.

The corned beef and cabbage are served in large portions and cut as they ought to be. The bartenders do an excellent job of taking care of the patrons! The beer selection is minimal, but the bartenders do the best they can to keep clientele happy. It is nice that there is a separate dining area from the bar which... More

Been here a handful of times. Mostly just for carry out. They have a bar area on the left and dinning on the right. Both areas separated by a wall. The bar area is small but nice, the dinning area needs work. The pizza is dry and boring. The subs are good. My wife had chicken marsala and she couldn't... More

My family has lived in the area for years, and we finally tried the pizza at Brother's Encore. They have great pizza! We were tired of the chains. This place was delicious! And we found out that they deliver. We will be back!

We love eating here. From the time you walk in the door until the time you leave, the staff are always friendly. They have the best fresh food. I love the cheese steaks, chicken Alfredo, the pizza as well as the Greek salad.

The best kept secrets become well known as more people gather at the Encore Italian Resturant for great Irish & Italian food. They have a wide array of subs, appetizers and pizza selections as well as main course favorites. On the Pub side, there is an opportunity to enjoy a drink watching sporting events or have a blast during Friday... More
