Four for dinner, each had something very different. Lots of variety on the menu, plus wonderful pizza. Moderately priced, great wait staff, no disappointment here.

Busy on a Friday but we reserved our table online and didn't have to wait at all. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Restaurant was full but you could still hear everyone at your table easily. Highly recommend the pizza!!

went here with a group of people from work. We were visiting the area for a business meeting and this little hide-a-way store-front in a plaza was recommended. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I first walked in, but the food really changed my minds... the oven fired pizza was fantastic. Try building your own with a... More

Been there a few times now as I live in the area and it is our go to place for a date night out. Food is always incredible no matter what we've ordered. The pizzas are amazing and probably their most popular option. Staff is always attentive and friendly, drinks are delicious. It can get very crowded and somewhat loud... More

Why is this place so busy? We had reservations for a Friday night and it was like sitting at Grand Central Station in rush hour. The staff was rushing around like the place was on fire. Ordered Mark West Pinot Noir and it came warm.....I mean not just slightly warm, but like the bottle was sitting near their pizza oven.... More

My wife booked reservations for a Saturday evening at 6:30 and it is a good thing she did. The place was packed. We ordered a pizza and a glass of wine each. Service was really good; but the pizza was great. As good ad any in the area. The tables are close together so no intimacy.

The place is tucked away so it's a good idea to have the exact address, we drove by it even knowing it was hidden. The place is rustic and is noisy at lunch. I had a chicken special and the bride had a grilled spare rib cheese sandwich, both were very good. Shoe string French Fries which I don't like.... More

We frequently eat out in Whitby and enjoy many of the local restaurants. On this particular evening, we wanted to have a good glass of wine and share a pizza. Upon arrival, we were given a menu that had seen better days. It was dirty and ragged. Glasses of water were put in front of us that were scratched and... More

Local fave. We haven't been for a few years but not because we didn't want to just weren't able. We like to celebrate our anniversary here and tonight did not disappoint. Service was fantastic and food even better. Forgot to take pictures but we both had a pizza mine was gluten free and it was the best I have ever... More

Hot Rocks is a family favourite, within walking distance should we choose to get there on foot. The menu is varied, their wine selection is quite good, and their wood fired pizza is excellent. Personally, I am a huge fan of their Lamb Shank dinner offering...it is excellent every time. An excellent venue to dine with family, friends, or a... More
