Pizza

Had the classic pizza - it was great! Service was excellent and the food was just as good. Tried the Beer sampler. The lighter colored beers were good, the darker ones tasted more like IPA. Nice place, I'd go again.

This is my second time there and will be my last. The group I was with chose it. The temp was so hot in there, I melted in my seat! Sorry, but I find their pizza's way over priced for what you get. Service was painstakingly slow to top it off. I couldn't wait to get out of there.

We don't usually go out for pizza but we were in a hurry. Big mistake assuming pizza would be fast. The wait for a small pizza was over 40 minutes. They weren't busy and it was not peak meal time. The pizza was good. Pricey but we would give it one more chance in the future.

We visited this restaurant three times over the last year after events at nearby Tacoma Convention Center. This was our final time - we will never go back. The location is ideal if you have occasion to be at the convention center. You can stay parked and make the quick walk down the street. That is the only reason I... More

Out of all of The Rock Wood Fired Pizza places that we have been to, this one is the best. Awesome food, and service just like always.

I have eaten here two years in a row with business associates. Last time was a group of 12. We had a wonderful waiter and a good time was had by all. All the food arrived at the same time. We had a variety of meals and shared most of them. Everyone was impressed. The Moss bread with the cinnamon... More

I visited with my friend, expecting to pay around $50 for the two of us. The pizza was a bit dry and I ordered drinks. The waitress pushed us to have more refills, and I didn't think much of it, but when I got the bill, I ended up paying over $100 for the two of us. There were many... More

Yes, bucket cocktails. They are awesome recommend the SuzyQ, in a little bucket.. I only had 1 drink though, LOL. Calamari appetizer is great - the Thai pizza is a must have!! Unique but excellent - trust your wait staff! They won't steer you wrong. They are friendly and sometimes you can participate in the Test Kitchen where they try... More
