We went in for lunch and were seated pretty quick. My wife and I both ordered the all you can eat. We couldn't make up our mind on the pizza we wanted to get. The Buffett had a good fresh selection. We will go back when were in town again.

We went here with our kids on a Saturday night and got seated right away. The server showed up and apologized for making us wait. Waiting for a server makes me irritated very quickly and I wasn't so it didn't take that long. She took our orders. She brought our drinks and told us that they were going to comp... More

The pizza was good, if a bit pricey. Service is slow and kind of rude. The restaurant had that dirty-mop smell - if you ever worked in food service you know exactly what I mean.

Pizza was great and came surprisingly quick. My wife and I were going to split the bucket but once I got a taste of it, it turned into my bucket. Our waitress was excellent and the atmosphere made us feel right at home.

Went here after a concert for some Pizza and beer. It was 11pm on a Saturday night. They did not close for another hour. The waitress in the bar was obviously upset she had customers. We could tell this immediately when walked in and we should have just left. She was rude and not friendly at all and she did... More

No Fun, means we missed the mark. Sorry to hear that you didn't have the Rock Star experience we try to provide to all of our guests. I will definitely reach out to the store manager for this location to make sure that we're always doing our best, even on our off days. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.... More

The pizzas are great; unfortunately they don't cater the to go clientele. Although they offers pizzas to go they don't provide paper plates nor drinks. We had to do a second stop to pickup the utensils and beverages. I would definetally go back to this place but for dine-in only; not to pickup an order.

The Rock in Tacoma is still the best ... I've been to four of their other locations and the Tacoma site still can't be beat. The ambiance, the pizzas, the servers and the music just seems to be better here ... and it doesn't hurt that this is also their 'test kitchen' for the corporation.

My family (3 people) ordered three exotic pizzas to share, and we weren't disappointed. Staff was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the micro-brew beer, too!
