“Dirty Kitchen - Dirty Dining Room”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We moved here 5 years ago and this establishment has gotten worse ever since.

- Bathrooms / always dirty
- Dining room after 6:30 PM / always dirty
- Kitchen Staff / always dirty

If you want to be served mediocre food in a dirty establishment by unengaged employees this is the place for your! This place is going to tank if someone opens a pizza restaurant and at least goes through the act of caring!

“Your average "out of town" pizza”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Being from New York, this was certainly NO New York pizza BUT, it was pretty good. Their lack of any menu from the hotel front desk to the internet made ordering anything but their plain ole pizza a bit difficult. So, that's what we did! One large cheese and one small cheese pie ... $29!!! Once I got over the sticker shock ($29 is a lot for two awesome NY pies), it was delivered to our hotel and it was not too bad.

“Expensive pizza, expensive ice cream”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Nothing special to compensate for the high price. Look around town for alternatives.

“Mediocore food doesn't compensate for: Bad, slow service, uncaring servers & order errors.”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Have been in E.J. for more than 10 (+) years and have given Rocky's many opportunities to redeem themselves... But, no more. The last two (2) visits are beyond redemption. The service was horrible. Without the owner on site, the service has no compunction to take care of their customers and will spend most of their time either talking on their phones or either ignoring, misplacing or bungling your order.

When trying to speak to someone responsible:

"May, I speak to the owner?
- "He's not here"
"Will he be in tonight?"
- "I have no idea."
"When would I be able to speak to him?"
- "I have no idea."
"I wanted you to know that I was very unhappy with tonight's service. It took much longer than you said (40(+) min for a pick up) and the order was wrong."
- "Okay, thanks." Click.

“Yummy pizza; casual atmosphere”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Rocky's serves very good pizza in a casual atmosphere. I have eaten here many times. The prices are reasonable. This is a great place for a quick lunch, or to hang out with a group of friends over a good pizza. They have other selections, but I always have a pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms. I'm a creature of habit here! Yummy.
