Good food and drinks for 2 Just $30 with tip

Nice place for lunch. Not expensive and the food is fresh. I always eat here when in Gulf shores when I am wanting something more then fast food but less then an expensive meal. The pizza is good. A good pour of wine for $4 a glass .Beer 1.25 for a bottle. The place is not the Ritz but it... read more

Face it, Gulf Shores is not a cheap place to eat. So when we saw the prices at Papa Rocco's for lunch we decided to check it out. I had a meatball sandwich and my husband had the lasagna. My sandwich was good, although I didn't care for the sauce. My husband said the lasagna was so-so and had the... More

I can't really put down this place because it is what it is. Food was so so. Oysters parmesan at the price they charge was a bit much. Food was not the greatest for the price. O.K. Had the pizza. Was not that bad. Hey it's a bar not a pizzaria. Well just enjoy.

We visit the Gulf regularly and always make this a stop during our visit. Nothing fancy about the decor, laid back staff that treats you like a regular. Perfect for running in with the kids or sneaking off from them for a cold one.

We walked over to Papa Rocco's, from our RV park. You really need to walk there because parking is somewhat of challenge, since they are packed all the time. We had the shrimp pizza, so good! I will go back and try their baked oysters, however there never seems to be a slow time. They always have some sort of... More

This has become a regular stopping place for us when we're in Gulf Shores. Easy to see why --- very casual & relaxed with good food and nice service. Can be very busy at times!! Try one of their hot dogs or choose one of their variety's of spaghetti for a special treat. You won't be disappointed!

The pork chop special is okey -- not great, not bad. If you want an alternative to seafood, consider this little spot. Fast service and a location near the intersection of the two main roads at the beach.

Not a fancy place, but the food is well worth the stop! They claim "lousy food and warm beer", but don't believe it! You might think $12.99 for Lasagna (a piece of garlic bread, no salad) is too much to pay, but when you see the serving size and realize you actually got TWO meals (doggie bag) for the price...

Excellent pizza and the sandwiches are also excellent. I love their French onion soup....there is something for everyone on the menu, including seafood and Italian. Prices are moderate and the place is always crowded. Parking is a nightmare.
