Ask for Jen. We had 4 dozen oysters, some small salads and Beer. I especially enjoyed the Rocco's Special steamed oysters. Also the beer is discounted until 6pm.

Pizza was terrific, the staff was pleasant, and I really enjoyed the band. I felt like I was in a bar, though, which wasn't what I expected. Not negative...just not what I was going for. Smokers on the porch were inconsiderate and the restroom needed attention. Next time, I'll get my food to go.

We have been coming to Gulf Shores for years. Always wanted to try this place since it was always packed. Boy, we were disappointed. We had the pizza and it was not that great. Had no flavor or sauce. The pizza at Pizza Hut across the street would have been much better!! Other food may be good, but nothing great.... More

We love to eat shrimp in Gulf Shores, but after a while we need to eat something else. Today at lunch we went to Papa Rocco's which has a sports bar atmosphere. I was there with my husband and his father. We ordered a Reuben sandwich, french onion soup, a burger and a veggie pizza. We rated the Reuben and... More
