Keep in mind, this is a dive and limited amount of seating is available but well worth the wait!! I am always very skeptical about trying other's alfredo sauce because my family views mine as the best out there. Definitely tastes homemade and the flavor is just out of this world. My husband and I visited Papa Rocco's twice because... More

Pizza is kinda bland compared to the pizza place down the road, service can be slow sometimes but the staff is very friendly, have not tried other menu items except for pizza.

Looks like a small hole-in-the-wall joint. Don't let this fool you! This place has some of the best food on the gulf. You have to try the French dip sub, oysters Rockerfeller and for kids, the spaghetti is very good. We always go to Papa Rocco's when we visit the gulf and talk it about until we can get back!!

It was not the best pizza I have ever had but they delivered and it was reasonably priced. So for the nights you are too beat to deal with traffic this is ideal.

Good food but building could use a good cleaning-unpleasant smell. Stuffed mushrooms were delicious and their homemade ranch is the best I've ever had! We had buffalo chicken pizza which was pretty good. We also had the artichoke, sun dried tomato with chicken and it was excellent! Lots of beer choices but all bottles or cans, no drafts. Loved our... More

I had eaten here once before and bragged about the 2 pound plate of crab legs and royal reds, and brought my wife and mother-in-law this time to share it with them. The wait was about 45 minutes, but they were very efficient at getting people in and out, especially for a smaller place. I was disappointed that they didn't... More

My family always makes a stop at Papa's when we're at the beach. Their pizza and cheese bread are greasy and delicious! The atmosphere is a dark, dingy bar, but the staff is really friendly and it's exactly what you should expect for a place that advertises with "lousy pizza & warm beer!"

I've been going to Papa Rocco's for almost 7 years now. Every year we go to the gulf for sure. This year the service was at its finest. A man was outside and helped us park do to us having my grandmother in a wheelchair. There is something special about what is done at this restaurant. Oysters and pizza! It... More

We ate at Papa Rocco's Thursday evening and had a 30 minute wait. They have benches outside to sit while you wait. This is a beer joint with great pizza, Italian food, and seafood . They have a bar and several TVs turned to sports and there is almost always a wait. This tells you the food is great. The... More
