“Better than the location would lead you believe”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We stopped in after touring the nearby Lighthouse. The furnishings were better than expected given its old strip center location. The service was quick and efficient. We were all pleased with our meals (white pizza, calzone and pasta). The only downside was the bathrooms (cheap doors with holes, scribbles, etc.) A fresh coat of pain, cleaned floors and new doors would increase the appeal tremendously.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Went to Jerry's last night for pizza. We were a little early so we went outside to the tiki bar. We each had a drink and just enjoyed talking and being outside. After awhile, a band started playing on the small stage behind us. We wanted to have more conversation, so we settled up at the bar and went inside to the restaurant. Our young, friendly server took our order for a couple beers and a pizza within a minute of our being seated. The beers came right away, and the pizza came, piping hot, in less than 15 minutes. The pizza was good, better than expected.
Overall, the food and drinks were good, the service was very good and the prices were reasonable. The only bad thing I can say about Jerry's in that the men's restroom was disgusting, grossly filthy.

“Get Your Pizza Fix”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We ate here Thursday evening. We arrived at 6pm and a one man band just started, Eddie Wolf, good sound and relaxing beachy music. We ate outside under a thatched roof table near the bar. We heard from some locals as well as on tripadvisor they have great pizza. So we ordered a large Jerry's pizza, an order of fried cheese, an unsweetened tea and a Michelob Ultra. The pizza was fabulous, thin homemade crust and a lot of toppings, the draft beer was served in a frozen mug and so cold and good my husband drank 5, the tea was fresh and a lot of ice (how I asked for it). The fried cheese on the other hand were undercooked and very basic. I was wondering why so many commented on the "young servers/workers" but after going I understand. Our server was good but there were several workers, mainly boys/men/21-25 year olds goofing off behind the bar with young customers and ignoring their customers or not doing chores like cleaning tables, sweeping the dirty floor or whatever else they should have been doing. We will be back for the pizza and the cold $2 drafts. Our bill was $42 plus tip for our dinner, good value and good pizza!
