Probably best pizza in town

Very good pizza, possibly the best of the pizza places currently open. The manatee size is really large and priced well. I would classify it as NY style, thin foldable chewy crust. We had pepperoni, sausage and mushroom toppings. It wasn't really loaded, but it wasn't skimpy either. The mushrooms... read more

This is the only place we will order pizza in town and have been coming here for many years. We love the extra large garden pizza with plenty of veggies and a nice thin crust. But any of the pizzas we have tried are first-rate. The pitchers of beer are ice cold and the service is prompt. Our favorite night... More

Very casual - large menu - great pizza. Friendly staff. Can be a madhouse in season.... Lots of special deals on food and drink. Inside and outside seating.

We were meeting friends in Punta Gorda who had never eaten at Manatees but had heard about this restaurant. There is no ambiance in the restaurant. Menus were brought and order taken in a timely manner. My husband and I ordered a caesar salad to share. Good size, did not care for the dressing, and...tomatoes are not part of a... More

Manatees certainly lived up to its 'word of mouth' reputation as far as its food is concerned- we enjoyed delightful, thin crust pizzas and two for one drinks but the service left lots to be desired. Unless the staff are trained to smile and to continue to check whether patrons are ready for another drink, then people will take their... More

On Thursday Manatee offers all their pizzas at 1/2 price. We get a group, order pizza, drinks and socialize. No matter what type of pizza we get it is always good. They never skimp on toppings. We are snowbirds from around the northeast and all agree it is the best pizza in the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area.

Very good and innovative selection of pizzas and other Italian foods on menu, consistent quality, and nicely centrally located right next to the legendary Ice House pub with a nice outdoor patio area. Not much to dislike really. Prices could ALWAYS be lower, but other than that Manatees Pizza is highly enjoyable!

If you're the type of person the prefers NYC or new Have CT style pizza, thin a little crusty, and not flooded with cheese this place will do. You won't get the the thin death part but they don't drown it in cheese. Not my favorite place to sit and eat but it works very well for fake out.
