Locals can tell you, in spite of its slogan — “The home of warm beer and lousy pizza” — the pizza at Papa Rocco’s is actually excellent, and the beer is at just the right ice-cold temperature. But that’s not all Papa’s got to offer. The restaurant is also a People’s Choice Award winner for Best Oysters and Best Happy Hour, and any Gulf Coast oyster lover will tell you those awards are well-deserved.
Papa’s award-winning menu features local favorites like steamed royal red shrimp and a seafood primavera pizza, alongside Italian favorites like fettuccini alfredo and lasagna that’s as delicious as any ever served. The popular eatery has more than earned its reputation as a local favorite, with live entertainment seven nights a week (no cover charge!), a full menu until midnight and sports playing on eight high-definition plasma TVs.
