Pity about the indifferent service

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.

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.

We enjoyed the chef salad and garlic knots as part of the Southwest Florida food tour with Laverne. Marinara sauce and salad dressing were both made in house. I can imagine that the pizza would also be delicious!

My boyfriend is a pizza connoisseur; and he had nothing negative to say... Which is very high praise, coming from him! He said their sauce is very good, too. I enjoyed their wings very much... They tasted oven roasted, not deep fried, which I liked very much. Check their website for their daily specials for great deals. Also a plus,... More

I really can't say enough good things about this little gem. The pizza is fabulous and they always have nightly specials. Tonight is Thursday and it's 1/2 off pizza. There pie is worth every penny of the full price every time, but if they want to give it to us for half price at won't argue. And Fia (Fee-a) (the... More
