Co-owner and one of the head cooks of Edgartown Pizza, Danny Segal is passionate about creating unique relationships with every diner that walks through the doors of his restaurant. From the moment the customer comes in, to the moment they leave, Segal makes sure that he does everything that he possibly can to make them feel welcome.
Along with making sure customers receive great service at his eatery, Segal also spends time cooking delicious food at an affordable price. Though the name implies serving only pizza, that’s the farthest thing from the truth; Edgartown Pizza has a menu that includes unique hamburgers, as well an extensive variety of sandwiches and other grilled American fare. With Segal and his fellow co-owner, Chris White working their hardest to create new menu items and please diners, the future for this restaurant only looks brighter.
