Rocky's has a genuine in house made marinara sauce and a excellent quality cheese on their pizza. They use a high quality none bleached flour and the crust is just right. The young man that runs the place, Nick, he has a culinary background and an excellent palate. This restaurant has recently changed hands and is making some fantastic changes... More

This place looks kinda cute on the outside but inside it's visually a mess. The booths are falling apart, the floor has sections that don't have linoleum on them, there are patches on the walls. Although I went there at a slow time of day (between lunch and dinner), I could see all three employees sitting around (one on the... More

Everyone was recommending this place for pizza so we decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately it really wasn't that good. With some many options for pizza you're probably better off getting a brick oven pizza locally. It seemed overloaded with cheese but there wasn't much flavor in our pizza. We won't be trying rockys again.

We came here for just the soft serve. I had the maple black raspberry twist and it was so delicious! I'm sad I can't get this ice cream where I'm from!

Born and raised in NYC, I can tell you NYC pizza is the best worldwide. I doubted that I could get similar elsewhere and came here with doubt, ordered a slice to try, plain cheese...the moment i folded it (NYC way to eat a slice), the smell of its crust sent me back to the days I worked on Wall...

Great place for pizza by the slice or whole pies. Full menu available. A Big plus here is their Creemee stand with good size and prices.

Rocky's is a no-frills little place that serves up great pasta dishes and pizzas on paper plates. And after you finish your meal, you can go to the street-front window and order an ice cream dessert. We order the Large Maple Creamee [soft ice cream]. We were licking as fast as we could to keep the cone from dripping any... More

We stopped at Rocky's Ice Cream window for the sole purpose of trying a genuine Vermont maple creemee. The frozen treat was tasty, with a true maple flavor, not artificial. Better than the other creemee's we tried on the trip.

My wife and I ordered two slices. One plain cheese and one with pineapple on it ( that was for her, I do no believe in doing such things to a pizza.) Two slices with a fountain drink and it was 10 dollars. A bit steep. I think they ran something up wrong and the owner took notice. When I... More

Rude staff. Bad food and will never go back again. The staff is very unfriendly and not pleasant at all. You feel like you are a burden to them if you go in there to order food. They roll their eyes at you and do not even greet you when you walk in. Forget trying to order ice cream at... More
