“Darn good pizza and oysters”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We enjoyed the pizza, garlic bread, and side order of oysters when we visited. The place is actually not very pretty, but it was recommended by friends, and they were right. Great pizza, cold beer, and friendly staff. Make no mistake, this is not a white table cloth place that happens to serve pizza. It is a neighborhood bar that has grown into a pizza (and other sandwiches, etc) place. We enjoyed our pizza - too hot to eat when it arrived - just the way I like it. The baked oysters were a treat, and the garlic bread was tasty. No draft beer heer, but a large selection of cans and bottles to chose from. I will return !

“Pizza Overcooked/Crust Tough”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Called 04/25/14 to order pizza to go. Told 10-12 minutes. They did not have my order when I arrived. Waited more than 20 minutes, overall 30 minutes after phone order. Pizza was overcooked, crust was tough. They've lost a repeat customer.

“Papa Rocco's”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The place is normally very crowded - sign of good food. Ordered pizzas - which were very tasty, though a bit expensive. Didn't go back.

“Pizza & Brewhouse Beer”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Some of the best choices for draft & bottle beer to accompany the fabulous pizza we had! The waitress was very helpful in choosing a beer, offering several good sized samples so we could pick one. It was so hard! They were all good. Especially the Kona coconut! Fast service, crisp salad and fresh tasting crust.

“Amazing Pizza, awesome entertainment, friendly wait staff. ”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had a small pizza which was very good and ended up being three pieces for the each of us. One half sausage pepperoni and the other half pepperoni and olives. I love Alfredo sauce and no one can usually top mine, however, I was very satisfied and it definitely did not appear to have come out of a jar..very impressed!! A two man band was the entertainment for the night and played a wide variety of music..very talented guys, from outside you would have thought it was am entire band.. great night!
