“Upper Crust Pizza - Worth the Trip!”
Reviewed October 16, 2007

We love the Upper Crust Pizza. The food is beyond fabulous and the service is too. The couple who own it are so nice and take great pride in having the best food and service. If you are any where near Rockaway it's worth the trip just to eat here. The pizza is great, the salads are fresh (and pretty too) and the hearth breads are tasty!

Visit and enjoy - you won't be sorry!

“Wonderful find!”
Reviewed May 16, 2006

We happened upon Rockaway Beach and Upper Crust Pizza quite unexpectedly during a driving tour of the area. This pizza was delicious! We ordered a 1/2 BBQ Chicken and 1/2 Greek pizza. Both varieties were great. I was very impressed with the Greek - it contained ground lamb as a topping and lended an authentic Greek flavor to the pie. Prices were reasonable.

The only complaint is that the restaurant charges for a to-go box (aluminum foil is free), and there are no paper plates/utensils available for take out. Since we were taking it back to our hotel to watch the sunset, that would have been very convenient for us.

“Delicious Pizzas and More”
Reviewed February 18, 2006

This place has THE best pizza and is the reason we go to Rockaway Beach. Their sauce is homemade and you can taste the difference. Their garlic hearth bread is like nothing you can find anywhere else - for true garlic lovers!

Everytime we are there we hear from others they have traveled here just for the pizza as well. Its just a great family owned restaurant with wonderful staff, nice and clean atmosphere. Lots of options on their menu with salads, chicken etc.

Eat here soon - you wont be sorry.

“Highly Recommended - Fantastic Gourmet Pizza's - Friendly Customer Service”
Reviewed March 10, 2005

This is a "must eat at" restaurant - We ate at the "Upper Crust Pizza" restaurant in the later half of February 2005, With NO complaints. We were staying at the "Rockaway Beach Resort", which is only a few blocks away and an easy walk.

To find "Upper Crust Pizza" when driving north through the town of Rockaway Beach on U.S Highway 101 you will find the restaurant on your RIGHT just after passing the "Hope Chest Thrift Store" and just passing North 4th street. If you drive to far north, you will see "The Foghorn Sports Pub and Grill" on your RIGHT.

The "Upper Crust Pizza" restaurant is owned and operated by a fantastic husband and wife team for over 7 years. The owners make it a point to take the time to talk with and to get to know their customers. You leave there having made some new friends. All the people that were there seemed to LOVE this place and its ambience. The owners take great pride in the fact that "If it is not fresh, they do not use it". They cook and slice all their own meets, etc. They really go the extra mile to make some of the BEST pizza I have ever eaten. They also make "to go" orders, so you can call them from the hotel, pick it up, and enjoy it out on the deck watching a beautiful sunset.

They have Specialty Pizza's, we had a half & half of "The Big Tsunami"(mushrooms, pepperoni, salami, canadian bacon, beef, green bell peppers, black olives and onions) and "BBQ Chicken"(marinara, chicken, red onion, green bell peppers, cheddar). Wow......, absolutely fantastic tasting! They also have Traditional Style Pizza's, Seafood Pizza's, Hearth Bread, Hand Built Salads and typical beverages including beer and wine.

While we were there, they had just placed out on their large outside sign that they had just past the health inspector's test with a 100% passing score. And I believe it. The place is extremely clean and cheerful. They also have a large screen TV in the main eating area.

Dress code is "come as you are" casual. I do not know if they give reservations, though I would not think one is necessary. The restaurant looked like it would be very easy for a person in a wheel chair to get around, though I did not see the bathrooms.

I HIGHLY recommend eating here...............and we can't wait to return.................Enjoy!
