Our tennis team popped in on friday night. The pizza was great. Not doughy and temperature was just right. A few of the team got oysters and were happy. They loved the beer selection. They have a band/singer at night. It is a bit loud so don't go on a date if you wish to have meaningful conversations.

I really wanted some wings and was disappointed if their selections so o decided to go with the Turkey Melt which was amazing. The rest of the family said their pizza was good but not great. We also got some grilled oysters that were really... More

That's their motto. If you don't get it, don't go. It's A local legend! Papa Rocco's has a great kitchen for a "bar", on Thursday's for lunch, you can get a plain old hamburger steak, with mash potatoes and beans that is awesome. Go by and see Papa!

The pizza is excellent. All sizes from a small personal to a very large for your family. They have bands on certain nights, good fun. The oasters come in several kinds of dishes. Very good value.

Went here for dinner and got the crab combo, which came with reds. I thought this was a type of crab meat, but it was shrimp, so I was disappointed in my meal. Make sure you ask if you are not sure. The gratuity is included in the bill which I did not realize and so I gave another 20%... More

I'd never tell someone to not eat at an establishment. I only rate places on my experience. That being said. I didn't care for the pizza. Very dry, hardly any toppings on it. We ordered a large pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza. Some pieces had no toppings at all. Our order was pick up. Bartender asked name and that was... More

Don't let the old look fool you. Best pizza and coldest beer on the gulf. Ask for Prissy. She has been there forever. The oysters are great and the crab legs rock. You can't go wrong.

Waited for service for one hour after being seated and when the food finally came, the hamburger was overcooked and hard. The server said "Sorry. we are busy". Do not recommend this place to eat in - they seem to be doing a thriving take-out business.
