First time there in several years, and the food was excellent. It was "buy one get one" pizza night, and the pizzas looked delicious. I opted for the Seafood Primavera dish and it was excellent. Full of scallops and shrimp.

We live in the area but don't get to Telly's as much as we should. We've probably been there at least 15 times in the last few years. One of the things that brings us back is the consistency - sometimes meals are better than others, and sometimes the service varies a little. However, this all varies between good &... More

Telly's has been a favorite of the locals in Epping for a long time. Even though we had driven by it for many years, we had never given it a try. We made up for that recently and were glad we did. While it is not a real large restaurant, there is a good size dining room, lounge and sitting... More

We appreciated the convenience, openness, lack of sound on the TVs over the bar, the choices, preparation and food. Erika greeted us pleasantly, answered our questions and provided efficient service. The pizza, calzone and tortilla strip salad (coat of warm goat cheese, candied walnuts,granny Smith apples, greens) were winners.

Tellys is a great family place and we love their added room in the back and the outdoor seating and giant firebar table. We have been going there forever. Food is always good! So many options too. Gets a little loud but its worth it. Service is friendly.

Just a great family feel local restaurant..I live it. Everything is good!! I typically order the sandwiches (steal and cheese is great) but if the family and I aren't concerned about budget the steaks, Italian dinners are awesome.

First time customer here. One thing I feel is incredibly important in any service industry, but especially restaurants, is acknowledging the customers presence and a timely 1st round of drinks. We visited on a Saturday before the dinner rush, were seated promptly, but sat in our booth for close to 15 minutes without being asked for our drink order. We... More

The food is good. I would give it a 7.5 out of 10. The pizza is a bit disappointing, it would benefit from a better quality cheese. The cheese they use is tasteless. Pasta dishes are all good and apps are fine. The outside fire pit during the spring, summer and fall is amazing.

We have eaten at Telly's several times, as it is a good midpoint in our family visits. Each time the service has been very good, and the food good and plenty. The menu offers a large variety, which usually signals mediocrity, but the quality and taste have been spot on every time. Service was very attentive and friendly. We will... More

Place is one of the better local options. Clean, modern, friendly staff. Pub style menu and brick oven pizza wife loves the salads and chic fingers. Reasonable cost.
